    this morning my key fell down the side of my seat. moved the seat up and back to try pick it out but it fell under the seat rail. had to drive the car so moved the seat back to driving position but it stopped and failed to work. strange thing is both seats have failed to move.... There was no fuse in the fuse board and they worked before so its not those. any ideas on what could be the problem?

    many thanks

    Hmm.
    What model of car is it and are the seats electric Im guessing?

    By 'theres no fuse in the fuseboard' can you elaborate a little?

    Sounds to me like the key is trapping the mechanism and possibly there is a safety cut off if its a newish car.

    its a 2001 318coupe. yer the steats are electric. there was no fuse in the fuse board for the adjustment on both drivers and passanger side seats, the slots were empty. the key is now free and the seats still dont move, im just miffed as to why they have both stopped working.
