to sum it up for you basically when you blow a fuse on a Cadillac it pretty much has to go back to the dealer for the PCM to be reset by the master computer

Ouch. I believe you Matt, I am not disputing what you said, it's just seems like a pain in the rear, GM does want you back at the dealer I grant you that. It just seems that if something shorted out and still left power to the seats and nothing else is odd.

It says in the owner manual that adding non-OEM components may damage your vehicle.
