Hi All,

I am new to the forum and new tothe SL300, I got my first one today!! Its taken me a while to find it and a faulty seat switch was assured to me as an easy thing to fix...I am beginning to think this is not the case.....
With the ignition on or off I am unable to move the passenger seat in any direction. I have been toll there is a plunger switch behind the actual seat control which is faulty and if I push the housing in eough it will connect and work??this is rubbish.
Please can anyone help me on how ot tackle this problem and resolve without spending hundreds of pounds!!??

Man thanks for your help and look forwad to the knowledge share!

Cheers,
Z :thumbsup:

The problem is probably the seat control unit located under the bottom cushion or somewhat less likely the seat control switch group. I think this is most easily diagnosed by swapping components between seats.
