Driver's Seat and Steering Wheel Adjustment Gremlins...

I've owned my E39 for 5 months and 5K miles. After replacing battery, alternator and final stage resistor, I've been pretty much free of electrical gremlins.

Until Friday.

My driver seat adjustment, and the steering column adjustment have stopped working (steering column is in the full upright "entry-exit" position). Passenger seat adjustment works fine. To be clear: The driver's seat does not respond at all (it's not a single motor issue). Same with the steering column.

I checked the fuses in the glove compartment, and battery voltage at rest is OK at 12.7v.

Also, tonight my central locking got a bit wacky, but I was able to get it to lock properly.

I'm going to disconnect the battery tomorrow morning for a while to see if it will clear the memory/reset the CPU's, etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
