Unhappy Ml320 Elecric Seat Not Working

Hello all,

I have a 2000 model ML320. The passenger electric seat was working fine but has now stopped, i have swapped the switch onto the drivers side and the switch works fine on that seat. I looked at the fuse/relay box under the bonnet but cannot see a listing for a electric seat under either fuses or relays, does anyone know if there is another location for realys/fuses or even what could of caused the seat to stop working?

I had this (although I didnt swop the seat switch over) on my 02 ML - all that had happened is that the power connector for the seat had come undone. As it was coming loose the passenger door mirror sometimes went to the wrong position with the memories. Basically the seat cable had got pulled at by my small childrens feet.

As you've taken the switch out, i'm sure you'd have noticed that - but I thought i'd post it for others in case it happens to them

this was a common fault on w163, the clip breaks on the seat ecu and has to be cable tied back on or new ecu

cheers
