Power seat/steering adjusters dead
My car has had issues with the power telescoping wheel for some time. First the telescoping feature stopped working, now it won't move up and down either. Around the same time that stopped working, the driver's seat adjustments stopped working. Both features were erratic before they died -- for example, I had to move the switch for the driver's seat several times before it would budge; same with the steering wheel.
Since the passenger seat still works perfectly, I'm wondering if this is a worn cable issue or something similar; I've heard E34s had a problem with the power seat wiring wearing down. Does anyone know if a similar problem -- or something entirely different -- could be causing my issues, and where I could look to determine the problem? Thanks!
