Default littledummy

My husband surprised me in 2014 with a 2004 Crossfire, 6 speed manual trani with 32,000 miles.(not bad for a 10 yr old car). I love it when I have a chance to drive it. Quess who drives it most? He looks good in it, but I look better, besides I am a lot smaller than he is!! We live in California, in the Sierra foothills around 3200 ft elevation, so we do get snow a few weeks a year than the 4x4's becomes handy.
I love to tinker around with electronics and etc.., but this is the only car we don't have a service and/or shop manuals. We have been using "HOW TO......" on the internet, but you can't trust
everything they tell you. So I thought to join Crossfireforum and receive correct information and fixes that I need. So, thank you in advance and be gentle with me. I do ask dumm question sometimes! That's why I am a littledummy!! I don't know much about forums and navigating within.
As of now, trying to figure out, why the seat controls don't work on the driver side. Attemted to drive it the other day and I was a few inches to short to engage the clutch enough before it stalled. Tried to move the seat forward a couple of inches and it didn't move. PROBLEM !! I don't know about the passanger side but soon find out. I am going to follow some threads members shared pertaining to this problem. Thanks again everybody.

Welcome !
The seat is probably a bad seat relay, you can find info on this and all manuals in the link below.

So the height and seat back adjustments do not work either I take it. Have you tried to move the seat with the door open? One problem is that the seat works when the door is open but not when the door is closed. There is a simple solution to this problem.
Maybe it is a fuse, have you checked the fuse?
Do not call yourself a dummy, dummies are the ones who do not ask questions and therefore do not learn.
The service and owners manuals are in the link provided by ala_xfire and the link below in my post here, manuals and practically everything you would want to know.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I haven't checked the fuse yet , as there are no fuse position diagram on the cover. Need figure out which fuse it is. In addition, the seat does NOT move with the door open or closed. My guess, to begin with could be the fuse. I hope it's that. SIMPLE! Looking into that on the link.
I printed the info from the link, now I just have to do the work. I already have most of the screws out, as I had to remove the sticky ignition switch module because the key would not turn. That was a little tricky, but it works fine now.
I hope this is going to be as easy. I know a little about relays and soldering circuit boards.
Thank you for that info on downloading link, this is really helpful!!

Thank you, It was the fuses?. In position 21 & 22 30amp. they looked and even checked out ok, but decided to replace it anyway. Now both seats are working, but looking at the schematic the relay could be the problem as it feeds ckts 21 & 22. May be a stuck relay (or ground), but on the other hand once relay goes it's gone. I just doubled checked the power seats and it works with door open or closed. At least, before I reinstall the rest of the dash, I can take off the remaining dash and check out the relay.. It won't hurt,! I might just purchase a new relay. Thanks again Annamarie

Fuse #21 for the passenger side and #22 for the driver side. See attachment.
You stay logged in for a long time.
With good ears you can hear the relay clicking when you push the door closing switches.

Take it from a Pizzaguy in a Dunce Cap:
Next time the seat wont' move, try the passenger side. If both wont move, it's the seat relay.

And it seems like it's ALWAYS the seat relay.


BETTER YET - sell the damn car and get ya a Base model, or better yet, an SE like mine:


'cause Base and SEs dont have those uncomfortable leather powered seats - they have nice, manual, comfy cloth seats.

Very common problem. As I recall, our's was an intermittent failure for some time, as was our "sticky key"/ignition switch, before replacement. No problem since, (many years). Welcome and enjoy!

Don't forget to lubricate the seat mechanisms and tracks, that will reduces the stress on seat motors which can blow the fuses
