Dynamic Seat Problem

I'm posting in the General Forum under the assumption that the drive dynamic seat operation is common amongst models. I've got an 05 CDI which I was driving from Dallas to Houston last night with the family. I did not have the power on for the dynamic function. About halfway to Houston I stopped to strech my legs and left the engine running. Within five minutes I got back into the car and the lumbar bladder had inflated to the size of a football. It would not deflate nor would any of seat functions work. I could not turn off power to the switch and the dynamic indicator stayed illuminated even with the ignition off and the key removed. I tried roadside assistance-the wrench button for advice but these people are useless. I tried SOS and a service tech met me at midnight after reaching the Houston area driving like the hunchback of Notre Dame. Tech said he had never seen anything like it. He pulled the airlines to deflate the bladder and swapped switches with the other seat. So far all is fine-I won't try to power either seat until after I return to Dallas. Anyone else experience this? It goes to the Dealer Tuesday morning.
