Probably a leak - when one fails the car will also block the other from working. On our SL it was a broken pipe under the seat from moving it back and forth. I sleeved it with windscreen washer pipe.

Mrs LK was in the habit of hitting the button on the seat to put her handbag behind the seat every time she got in or out. She's been re-educated....

Couldn't hear anything on ours either.
We did hear the initial hiss when it first failed but that was all.
Once it detects a leak the PSE pump blocks the feed for any subsequent attempts.

I tried it using STAR but still didn't help. In the end I traced the pipework to find it.

We'll thanks again I guess that's what will have to do start with the driver seat etc if I find the leak and fix it will the pump kick back in or does it need rebooting somehow

I don't remember on ours to be honest but I did have to clear the errors. I just don't recall whether I cleared the codes first or after trying it.

Ours was under the passenger seat. The plastic pipe comes from the seat and goes under the carpet. It was immediately obvious when you looked under the seat (put the seat on maximum height for ease).
