Unhappy '87 300E Power Seats donít work?

All of a sudden both front power seats do not work along with power locks, rear doors only (front and key works) and the telescoping steering wheel. Checked fuses under hood those are all OK, Is there another fuse that controls these items? If not any idea what might be causing this?

Model year of car

It's a 1987 model year. Anyone have an idea of where to look for this problem?

You might re-check those fuses, especially 'C'



Are any of the other things listed under C failing to work? Antenna, rear passenger or trunk light? If all the stuff fused by C is OK, maybe a worn cable or bad seat memory switch?

Thumbs up Fuse Box Checked any other ideas?

Thanks I have already checked and changed the fuses. All the other items are working except the power seats (both), steering wheel and rear power locks only. About a year ago I had the whole wire bundle changed in the car and maybe something has come loose? If someone had a schematic perhaps they could determine why only these three items don't work. Thanks for your response.

Herb:
On the seats and telescopic steering wheel, I would also check fuses "F" and "E",also 2 and 9, they would relate to the problem.
If the body harness were replaced, it could be that a few of the screws on the underside of the fuse box were left loose, that could cause it too.
I don't believe the door lock problem is related, though. All 4 doors are on the same pressure/vacuum circuit, so I would tend to think about maybe the lines inside the rear hinge conduit are cracked, or both rear actuators are bad, something along those lines. Are you sure the rear knobs are screwed on to the linkage? I have seen this before where the doors are actually working OK, but you couldn't tell visually because the knobs weren't attached to the linkage, they just laid there.

Exclamation Checked fuses

I have checked all the fuses and they are OK. In most cases the fuse controls other items and everthing else works and no one has told me that there is a hidden juctions box (connector) or hidden fuse somewhere for the seats other than those under the hood?
Perhaps it is a screw in the wire bundle and I assume both front seats get their power from the same source? The wire budle was changed under the hood over a year ago because a ground hog chewed on it on cold winter morning while trying to warm up next to a nice hot engine! Cost $2500 to repair!
