I own a 1995 Aurora and purchased it new. One of the very few problems I've had is with the lumbar support in the driver's seat. I would really like to use it, especially since it is stuck in the least firm position. I drive about 120 miles round trip to work every day and could use the firm support I used to enjoy in the driver's seat.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I have checked the fuses and none seems to be blown. Perhaps it is a breaker? Where, how do I check this out? I have approx. 88,000 miles on this car and it has been (out of six total) the best one overall I have ever owned.
Looking at the service manual, this is going to be a b*tch. Bear with me and we'll get through this!
okay... Step 2.
Locate the LH Seat/Lock Switch. It is in the center of the front left door in the trim panel. You're looking for a white 16-pin female connector. You need to test for battery voltage from spot B. Spot B is the orange connector in between the empty spot and the gray wire and above the red/black wire. You can use pin D which is the black/white wire two spots to the left of pin B as ground.

Thanks. I consider myself lucky to list this as my most significant problem. Still, it would be so nice to have it working again The seat back is way too soft as it is now. I'm going to try to find a loose connection under the seat. Wouldn't that be a nice, easy fix?
The manual basically says that either the pump is not getting power. (Bad switch or open circuit.) Or the lumbar seat module is shot. It basically has you test for voltage in a couple places to determine if it is the wiring or the module.
Well, no I do not own a multimeter, but I guess I could go buy one at Pep Boys. I am a little hesitant to remove the door panel and get into electrical stuff. Maybe, if I can't figure it out on my own I will just continue to use my $15.00 back support cushion instead of spending $$$ at the dealership. I appreciate your suggestions/advice.

better to be lumbar than your whole seat motor, mine seems to be moving slower, and slower, and slower each time i move it...i almost get obsessive not to let anybody move it, for any reason in fear it may go.
