Is it both seats that don't work? Maybe check the wire harness under the passenger side. Can't hurt to try. Other than that I have no ideas. Good luck with it.

Mine happened about six months ago. I found that if I dont put pressure on the drivers seat that they work. If I giggle the harness under the seat, they work. I was going to pull the seat over the holidays and look further but the HUD replacement and wide booty conversion took longer than expected . I have the seat and wheel where I want them so it hasn't been a big priority.

I fixed my telescopic and dirver side power seat. I found that two wires under the seat sheared off. Most likely from the seat being so low and me getting in and out of the car, causing the wire to eventually break. You can only bend a wire back and forth so many times before the copper yields and brakes.

re-attached the wires to the connector and everything works as before!

Yes, it you re-read my post, you will see that the center connector got separated from the wires. I re-attached the wire to the connector and plugged in the connector..

I hate user names – were you able to fix what’s going on with your Corvette? Please send me a PM if you’re still having issues.

Thanks,
