So the past few times I have tried to move my power seat it hasn't worked. When I checked the 30A/circut breaker it was blown. Let it cool down and plugged it back in and the seat works. But the second I turn the key to run it pops again. I have a DTC for clutch interlock circut malf. and ABS control module. Don't know if that would make a difference don't think so but putting it out there anyway. Is this a common thing? Figuring a short somewhere. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Sounds like a bad ground, especially if you're using the right fuse and it keeps blowing.2001 Chevy Camaro Z28 A4

Could be a wiring issue, could be a dieing motor too.
Have you tried adjusting the seat without you in it?
If not try it and let us know if it acts the same.

believe it or not my breaker kept over heating and then i couldn't move the seat, and it was because of my rear defroster. i guess they use the same breaker, and even though i didn't have the defroster on it was still tripping out the breaker. i unplugged the defroster @ the back window and never had the problem again.. but now i cant use me defroster....

That does sound like the defrost. Defrost would be ignition activated. If it turns out to be this, you could run a stand alone relay and wiring to the defrost if you still need to use it.

Check the connection of the plug under the seat, that connector likes to get dirty and will cross the circuit and that will cause the short, I had a flood hit my interior and the plug got wasted, so I just hard wired the connections together.02 Z28/LS1 NBM - TIN CAN RACING

Hmm ok. I will try to unplug the defrost first right from the window. If that doesn't work then I will have to find the plug under the seat and go from there. Will let you guys know how it turns out.

Ok so I unplugged the defrost and that did not fix the problem. Where under the seat do I check? Is there a harness?

Under the seat, from the back, you can see two wires coming out of the carpet.

Agree. I would check for corrosion or a bad connection first. Anything that adds resistance to the circuit could be the cause of your problem.

OK I will go there next and let you guys know.
