    Seat stopped working

    Hello all,

    I was driving in my car this morning and tried to adjust my seat. None of the buttons worked; the seat did not move. I tried the passenger seat and there was no problem. I tried pushing the programming buttons but nothing changed. So, I turned off the car, removed the key, and restarted. Seat worked like a charm. Any thoughts about why this happened? Did I reboot the car by restarting it? Do you think I should take it in? If I do there is always the chance of getting a key ring or an insulated cup!

    If it happens again, take it in while it is happening. They'll never "replicate the problem" and you'll have wasted your time.

    My poor experience is on the forum. Good riddance. MB's attempt for my generation: failed with me.

    Were you actually in motion while trying to move the seat? I wonder if there is some sort of safety feature that does not permit you to move the seat while in motion? I could be way off but I thought I would throw it out there.
    In my current car, my seat has 3 memory buttons and I cannot program them unless I am in neutral (manual shift) and the car is stopped.

    I can move and program all my MB seats when the car is in motion.

    Thanks for all your thoughts. The seat controls have always worked when the car was moving and if it was fuse it would not have started working again. I suspect a software gremlin that got sorted out when the car was turned of and restarted. Has been fine since.

    This had happened to me too. One day I don't know what happened I opened the door with out pressing the unlock button. So when I started to turn on the engine nothing worked. And I got supper scared. Suddenly on my screen there was a message telling me that the antithieft is activated and I had to call the dealer. After 10 minutes I got out of my car locked the door then unlocked it again. Then every thing was back to normal. WTF?

    Had a similar problem once back in December I think. I got in the car, everything worked except the wipers. Could not drive the car since it was raining. Parked the car. Made an appointment with the dealer. Next day everything was fine. Never had a problem since. Freaky!

    dem Germans make great engines and cars overall but when it comes to electrical stuff they fall way behind their japanese rivals. My uncles VW Phaeton had all sorts of electrical problems after year 1. From power seats not working to AC issues to windows not being able to roll back up. Best one was the massaging seat got stuck on "on" and couldnt be turned off!!! It was a nightmare. . Never had and rarely here about those issues in japanese cars.
