Porsche 996 comfort drivers seat wiring harness repair

Recommended Posts



I cant get any power to the driver's seat on my 2004 996 Turbo.


I have checked the fuses and they look ok.


I have also replaced the control module and still can't get any movement. I am thinking the power harness connector is broken. How would i check this?


Are these available for purchase? Any ideas on how to fix?


I do not want to have to replace the entire passenger wiring harness. Surely there is a cheap repair method as water gets into the cabin and corrodes the plugs in the CAB versions.


Help pls....

MY drivers seat stopped working 2 weeks ago.  It was in the full forward position.  The fuse was blown.  I replaced and it immediately blew.  Fortunately I didnt need to remove seat.  Found a youtube link on how to pop cushion off.  There are 2 white clips, just pull out pin then do your best to pull on pin to release the catch.  I treat the pin like a handle but was careful not to tear it off.  Once I was able to lift cushion, I was able to see where some off the fabric wrapping was ruffed off wires.  I was also able to see some wires that were kinked and ever so slightly cut.  Since the seat moves everytime you start and turn off car, my guess is that the wire was in direct contact with the seat frame.  Once I lift the cushion I put another fuse into the box and I was able to operate the seat, but I didn't need to remove it.  


I used liquid electrical tape and boat rigging tape on the affected wired.  I also used some wire ties which hopefully won't bite me later.
