I would love to see this seat problem that everyone is talking about. I saw Sam’s video on this but would like to see it close up to better understand the problem.

Are there any photos around of the usual traces that break?
Or is it just a case of getting a magnifying glass and looking?

Cheers
Drew.

The case is availible seperately. As far as repairing these I dont know how to solder the circuit on the board but I have had great sucess soldering a wire from the origin of the tracer to the destination. Due to the inherent cause of this concern being the case wearing on the circuit board this repair would be eliminating the cause.

Did you find out if parts are interchangeable. I put the older part in mine and seat heater won't work but everything else does. Does the module control the seat heater?

The seat heater wiring goes through the module IIRC, but there is also another connector to the heating elements wayyyyy back under the seat, almost where the cushion meets the seat back.

I replaced part LJE2160AB/XXX seat module with part LNC2160AD/XXX because seat would not move backwards. Now with the new part the seat heater doesn't work but everything else does. I switched the driver's seat module and the heater works on both seat with that module. So does the new part not have the heater capacity or is it programmable and if so how do I program it? Otherwise, anyone got part LJE2160AB/xxx?

xxx is the program code (Known as VCATS code). It usually can be found on a label on the left rim of the spare tire well, just under the side carpet.

If do not get a unit with the matching code, the dealer (or someone with access to the dealer tools) will need to program it.
