Eletrical Switches Not Working

Recommended Posts

I am having some trouble figuring out why most of the switches on my LS400 are not working: door locks, trunk & gas switch, and power seats. Had someone in the passenger seat who was adjusting the power seat and everything stopped working from there on. Every time I hit the door lock switch, I can hear a clicking noise coming from the fuse box under the steering wheel. Replaced the 30 amp breaker figuring that would solve it but no dice. I'm a little stumped on what might be causing all these components to not work.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I don't know what the problem is but I tell you what I would take a closer look at. You said when the passenger seat was adjusted you noticed the problem. I would probably start by looking at the wiring for that seat. Perhaps a wire became frayed or caught in the seat movement mechanism. I've seen coins get stuck in there and cause bad things. Sometimes a quick look with a good flashlight can reveal an issue. If the circuit breaker keeps tripping it means there is a dead short somewhere.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help but I am a shade tree mechanic myself.

The only common cause appears to be breaker 31 rated at 30A which is the one I assume you have replaced,it can be reset by pushing a non metallic probe into the small hole on the top of the breaker,As previously suggested if it keeps tripping have a good look under the passenger seat for wiring damage.
