Memory seat switch location 1986 SDL

I am trouble shooting a totally non-functioning left & rigt seats on a 1986 126 diesel. here is what we have found so far:
1. the fuse is hot
2. the harness is not

I am trying to locate the control box for the memory function to see if it is hot. I did notice that when I pulled off the door panel there were two female leads that were not conected to anything, they look almost like speake wires. I tested them and they are not hot. Perhaps an option on this car wa speakers in the side door map pockets like the 124's have.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thumbs up Memory Box ??

The memory box is under the seat below and to the side of the drive motors. That will be the left hand side of the seat bottom. You will need to remove the seat to access it. The harness from the door switches connects to a modular plug that is hidden under a carpeted cover under the front edge of the seats. The cover is released by grasping it and pulling forwards/ upwards lifting it over and past the steel cross member that hooks to. Two or three small coil springs towards the seat rear attach it under tension. If you have a schematic pin out you may be able to accomplish some testing from the modular plug! Good luck!

P. S. The memory unit I opened was basically a circuit board with an array of a dozen or more coils and associated resistors. If I remember it does not appear to be designed to be opened or serviceable ( yeah that's why I looked! ) but may very well be!

Thank you for the use of your kow who you are!!!
I may consider going to a junk yard and buying new seats. If anyone has a 126 body with Tan leather seats that they are parting out, please let me know.

Thanks again!!!
