    Icon5 508 seat movement

    My sonís 2012 508 drivers seat has stopped moving. Are there any obvious electrical things to check? Looking at other forums suggest fuses but I have seen nothing specifically listed for this problem. Again from the hand book and the web there does not appear to be a fuse for the seat. Passenger side works fine.
    How can you access the switch to test it?
    Is there any way to disconnect the electricals and move the seat manually? Two different size people drive the car.
    Thanks
    Glenn

    The wires chafed on the frame if you check the little fuse box on the firewall behind the push start button through the little panel that you put the key one will be blown ( not the main fuse box) what area are you in

    Donít just replace the fuse those wires are very thick
    You canít manually move the seat if you try you will break it

    Great, thanks for the idea. Is it just a mattter of taping the wires?
    The car is in Benalla, Vic. Looks like checking it out at the weekend.

    Yes itís seat out job though you will find the wires that run near the top part of the seat base frame are worn sometimes you can repair it without removing the bum cushion

    I have just checked out my 508 and can see the fuse panel - Peugeot certainly do not make it easy! The handbook says to use slight pressure to pull the cover down to get access so that is achievable.
    Looking under the seat and there is a mass of wires which will need looking at. The next question is how do you get the seat out to do anything?? Any advice please?

    I think I like working on my 403,404 and 504 better!

    I am sticking with my 205s, just upgraded to a better one which should last me for quite a few years. Maybe then go straight to electric?

    Thatís great gw
    Glenn you can pull the cover off underneath to make it easier it is sometimes possible to pop a fuse in and move the seat without sitting on it and get it to a position to get the 4 torx out happy to give advice

    How many electric motors are in these late models? Seems pointless to me, although such comments don't help Glenn I guess!

    I wouldnít comment if I didnít know.
    You can use the fuse blowing in a certain direction to figure out what wire it is but best to check all seat base ones.

    The 508 even has an electric arse scratcher, hence the mass of wires.

    Glenn, Mr McCurtayne is a Pug techo dude so he knows this stuff inside out. He's modest about it and won't say it so I have...so you know you can rely on the advice. A big asset here. (David, thanks for the fifty, sweet).

    DMcCurtayne, i am sorry about such a long time before replying but my son has been away and I did not know the answers. Seat was removed but no obvious bare wire or pinched wires found but it is back together and working so far. I wonder if he has shifted wires enough to let it work without blowing the fuse. I also asked about a starting probroblem in another thread and yo suggested the battery - it has been replaced and all is good again. Also found corrosion on battery terminals. Thanks, Glenn
