i got myself my tc a few months back and the seats havent worked since i bought it. i was trying to find a diagram for the fuse box, but mine doesnt look anything like what they come up as off of google. the seat motors look like they are in great condition, and the center controls all work except for the seats. what can i do to move it? is there a manual override for the power seats?

Welcome, Brandon - throw up some photos of your ride!

Check "fuse" 12 - it's actually a 20 Amp circuit breaker and it's next to the turn signal flasher.

In the full reply screen, click on "File Manager" under the text box. That's the function for uploading photos. Keep in mind that file size is limited to 500kb. You can also upload them to Photobucket or something and directly link with image tags.

i checked the fuses. they are still good. i swapped them around and they still retained all of the functions that they were supposed to have... except the seats. they still dont work even when i swapped fuses. all the wiring looks good still though. it isnt trying to do anything at all

Seats are on a circuit breaker, not a fuse. First thing to do is check for power (hot at all times) and ground at the seat switch using a test light. If power & ground, use test light to see if the switch is in fact switching power & ground to the 6 pin connector that goes to the motor assy.

You cant shock yourself on 12V. No walkthrus as far as I know of. You need to get an EVTM (electrical / vacuum troubleshooting manual) or a set of wiring diagrams for your car. I have been designing and troubleshooting electronics for close to 35 years and I still cant troubleshoot much of anything without a wiring diagram.
