Service Bulletin #: 04-08-50-018
Driver or Passenger Seat Functions Inoperative, Blown Seat Function Fuse (Repair Wire(s) and/or Relocate Connectors)
2005 Chevrolet Corvette
Some customers may comment on one or more of the following conditions:
• Power seat is inoperative
• Seat lumbar is inoperative
• Seat heater is inoperative
Upon investigation, the technician may find a seat function fuse blown.
The cause of these conditions may be due to either the seat harness connector becoming disconnected or the seat harness contacting the seat track, resulting in a rub-through to wires enclosed in the harness. Depending on the seat height position, clearance between the seat and floor is very tight. Back and forth seat movement may release the connector cam lock, allowing the connector halves to separate.
Repair the wire(s), if necessary, and/or relocate the seat harness connectors underneath the carpet using the procedure listed below. Perform this procedure on both seats in order to prevent reoccurrence of this condition.
General Motors bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, not a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform those technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, do not assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See a General Motors dealer servicing your brand of General Motors vehicle for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
