first wave of 95 S420 questions

A few things don't work or aren't right in the new-to-me 95 S420. Comments and suggestion are much appreciated.

1) driver's headrest, passenger's headrest and drivers seat bottom rearmost segment don't go up and down in respose to the switches. I can hear motors turning in all cases

2) left rear passenger door doesn't have closing assist function

3) shift gate is lifted in front and doesn't illuminate

4) dome light doesn't fade after closing the doors. It just goes off. Should it fade like 126 dome lights?

5) what's the English name of interior color 65 as in 265?

6) how do I know if this car has ASD (320s only?) or ASR?

Thanks,
Sixto

1) Headrest problems are usually the headrest rack & pinion inside of the seat.

2)Try removing fuse # 9 in the trunk & see if it starts working again.

4)Dome lamp should fade!

6)You will have a MIL light for ASD/ASR if so equipped. Most S420's have either ETS OR ASR. Only diesels & 6 cylinder cars had ASD.
