2006 525i Driver seat has no power
My driver seat has no power. BMW dealer said heated seat module in the seat is cracked
and causing the fuse to blow resulting in seat with no power. BMW dealer then tells me
the only options is to replace the whole seat for $1300. is there any other options out there
that aren't so expensive??
Try to find an independent mechanic to remove the seat and replace the module and or wiring. The dealerships don't have time to do these repairs and just swap in a new seat. Here is a description on an older model, but would think it would be similar......https://webspace.utexas.edu/rmedure/Passenger%20Occupancy%20Sensor/Seat%20pad%20sensor%20replacement%201.html
Thank you Tom, that helps a lot! Does anyone have any idea what kind of costs I should expect from this? I'm not much of a hands-on person especially when it comes to something like removing the leather from my seat.
Call one of your local auto upholster's for an average leather removal price.
I belive that module needs to be programmed to the vehicle so do watch out for that few independents can do programming.
anyone out there. i have a 06 525i .my dash just blank out nothing working am not able to see my gas gage nor my rev count.what could cause the problem?>
