I have a 129 for sale a lady came to look at it and she asked me why the electric seats only work when the door is open. I have no idea why, so can any one shed any light on that for me? If I can rectify that fault she may buy it.!!!!

It should work with the door open and also with the key in the ignition and the ignition switched on pos 1 or 2. It works with the door open so if someone significantly different in size to you gets in they can adjust it. It doesn't work with the door shut and the ignition off to stop people playing with it and draining the battery.

Sorry the description was a bit vague. When the door is shut with the engine running the electric switches do not operate the seat at all. They only work with the door open.
