Lumbar support pumps mistery....

x3 2013. The lumbar support of both front seats stopped working, so I took the car to the dealer.

They had it for a couple of days and they replaced both pumps, and they worked ok for....... ONE DAY, next day I try them, and they are dead again....

So I will take it again to the dealer tomorrow, but I have to assume that the problem is not the pumps but something that kills them....

Ok, UPDATE.

After leaving my car another week at the dealership (and I spent another week driving a new 2017 X3, but with less options than mine), they told me that they found a problem on the wiring harness, so they ordered a new one because it was causing the fuse to blow when touched....

Anyway, they will keep it a couple more days to double check to make sure there are no other errors, so we'll see....

Well, final resolution.
They replaced the wiring harness that goes between the switch at the seat and the pump itself (both sides), and now it works perfectly. I have been using it for 3 days without problems so I assume the problem is solved.
