Changing to powerseats

Post by Brulkjaer » Tue Jan 16, 2018 2:25 am

Hi,
I've bougth a powerseat (driver-site) for our V70N (MY2001).
It comes from a V70N 2001 or 2003).

Now it's powered with 12V and 12V switched. The powerseat works for 38 sec, and then stops to work. After deconnecting and connecting again 12V +, the powerseat works for 38 sec. again.

Two canbus cables on the seat (white and green, connector B) aren't connected. I don't see connections therefore in the car (under the seat.

How can I make the powerseats continues work?

That time period sounds right for a thermal overheat switch in a motor, with disconnecting resetting it,

Have you tried moving it for 5 seconds, waiting a minute, then trying again.

If it is still shutting down then it a Comm problem , and VIDA will tell you where

Hi Abscate,

Yes, after 5 seconds, it's still shutting down. Yes, I believe it is a Canbus problem. But how to resolve it.
I'll look into Vida and hope to see the problem.
I guess, the node from the powerseat 'broadcasts' on the canbus network, but becomes no answer from the CEM.

Now, I've connected 6 new wires from the chair to the fusebox, Cem, relay ans mass.
Now the chair works correctly.
Only the memory function doesn't work.
Anyone an idea to made work this?

On the P80s, programing is a two finger salute. Press and hold [Mem] + [1], [2] or [3]. Like copying to the clipboard on a PC.
To test move the seat out of position then press the programed number.

If that does not work, the wires near the switches tend to break.
