Cadillac Power seat problem

Have 1987 Cadillac Brougham (RWD: My baby w/only 61,000 miles). Drivers seat no longer working. Replaced switch on on the passenger door--whole unit windows, etc. Read that there is no fuse and none shown in the manual. Supposed to be protected by a circuit breaker. Anyone know where it is, can it be reset and how to reset if possible. Any other thoughts suggestions as to what the problem may be

Thanx

the breaker is in the fuse box with the fuses...it's a little silver hoohaa. they reset automatically and rarely if ever fail.

this is most likely your problem...there is a rubber conduit at the front of the drivers door that goes from the A pillar to the door itself. the wiring for the window and seat controls is in there. every time you open and close the door, you flex the wires and weaken the copper. after doing this enough times, the wire(s) become brittle and break. the conduit is solid all the way around so unfortunately the only easy way into it is to cut it with a razor blade. there's just enough wire so putting the broken ends back together doesn't work well. also where the wire has been distressed will be hard and solder won't stick to it and you can't twist it. cut the wire back on each end as far as possible and solder in a new piece of wire...at least as heavy guage as you are repairing. i'd like to have a nickel for every one of these i fixed back in the day...

Holy Smokes Thank You

CARGUYINVA: Can't thank you enough. Was hoping to just get pointed in the right direction. Instead, I get the advice from the most expert person in the country.

Many thanks,

Bill
