I need some help please....
I seem to have a buzzing noise constantly coming from the steering column every time I get in the car... It also happens when I turn the car off...and open the door..
I either have to move the steering column adjustment or the seat adjustment button for it to stop
Its the same buzzing that happens when you adjust your seat or your steering column..
I've also noticed that I cannot adjust the steering up or down....
It only goes in or out...
The problem is its constantly draining the battery...
Any help will be appreciated

Sounds like you might have an issue with limit switch on your steering column adjustment mechanism and the motor keeps running attempting to get to the desired position. It's also possible the module located on the drivers seat may have a bad connection or may be broken. Since it's killing your battery, you might consider disconnecting the seat memory module as that will also kill the connections your motors on your steering column. Then you can chase the ghost at your leisure without draining your battery in the mean time. There are several YouTube vids on troubleshooting that module on the side of the drivers seat.
