E39 drivers seat shorted

1140 2
I am blowing the #13 fuse and have troubleshooted the problem to the drivers seat. I take the main connector off under the seat and installed a new fuse and it does not blow.

Anybody know what usually causes the problem. My biggest problem right now is trying to figure out how to get the seat out with it being unpowered???? Thanks for your help!

You have a short to ground somewhere in the seat wiring. It may be in the wiring, it may be in one of the motors themselves. You'll have to take a look.
I am having the exact same issue. Please give us an update if you are able to solve the problem.
