    Us v GM service dept

    OK, this is about fuses.. Please don't hang-up! The accy's not working are all momentary switches.
    meaning they all go back to center when released. items include : both door mirrors, pedal adjustment, drivers seat adjustment. I'm thinking it's a multi-fuse or a J-case , I don't think it would be a mini? one of these fuse/relay parts must control all or most of the problems above. There are rear electrical center 1 and 2, they are "J's". What kind of things do the body control fuses control? I know they are mini's , #8 is a J.

    Any thought / idea or I know a guy that had that problem, I can put in play to keep this '13 srx luxury out of the shop will be greatly appreciated. btw it has 45k miles if that play's into this.

    Thank you, thank you

    Pardon me if I'm off point but does it have anything to do with the auto seat adjustment? (it's not just for seats)

    You should only use the same size tires that came with your vehicle.
    Changing tire sizes can create issues.

    I think possibly you are replying to another thread.

    I thought since the thread's "Subject heading" has apparently nothing to do with subject itself that this was a thread for random questions and comments.
    Yes I was being sarcastic with my "tire" comment.

    Re: Us v GM service dept

    I found a lot of confusion in the original post too, never mind the thread subject heading not matching subject. Had to read three times to figure it out (how do I hang up on a visual written forum?).

    Is the problem related only to switches on the driver door? Elsewhere in the cabin?

    Are you still using your original battery? A lot of electronics go funny in these high-computerized cars when the battery starts failing.

    And beware, a lot of items are not controlled direct by the switches. Pushing the button for the fog lights, for example, doesn't simply connect a circuit and light the bulbs. The 'switch' tells the computer to turn on the circuit for the fog lights. People have ordered the fog assemblies and button, change them out, and still nothing happens. Have to go to the dealer to get them to update the (body?) control module so it knows there are now fogs and button & it needs to listen and respond for commands. Same with heated seats, etc. Everything is controlled via the modules. Fly by wire is now the standard. It's how you get the system to be programmable to recognize fobs and auto adjust things, and remote start to be able to turn on the heated seats & the HVAC automatically.

    Re: Us v GM service dept

    thanks Max, I'm going to jump the seat motor and chase it to the switches and check that route, do you think possibility that the mirrors and pedal adjustment could be on the same power source? Thanks again

    I apologize for the confusion
    us the forum figuring it out or paying GM to fix it. I thought it was fairly straight forward.

    Suggest you do some serious searching on this forum using google. I remember this ghost being chased a couple years ago though I don't remember the fix if there was one. Good luck.

    Re: Us v GM service dept

    I'm thinking it's the memory module. Considering you indicate it's the seat, mirrors, and pedal adjustment. Those are all controlled thru & stored in that module. If I remember correctly, someone else had that problem and that was the fix. I don't know where it is located nor if it's user changeable.
