Vehicle: 2008 Volkswagen Eos lux 2.0L, L4, MFI, DOHC, Eng Desg BPY
Customer Concern:The driver's seat does not recline.
Tests: 1. Check the wiring and connector to the power seat switch assembly and to the Driver's Entry Assistance Control Module J572. Check for any signs of damage, moisture, corrosion, etc.
2. With a factory compatible scan tool, check to see if the Driver's Backrest Adjustment Switch E96 is being recognized.
3. Pin T6ax/6 Brown (BR) at the seat adjustment switches should be a good ground at all times.
A. This pin goes to ground at Ground Connection 44 on the lower left A-Pillar.
4. Pin T10t/1 Lilac (LI) at the seat adjustment switches should have B+ present with the Driver's Backrest Stop Switch -Aft- F382 closed.
A. This power comes from fuse S44 and goes through the F382 switch before going to the E96 switch.
5. Pin T10t/4 Red/Lilac (RO/LI) at the seat adjustment switches should have B+ present with the Driver's Backrest Stop Switch -Fore- F381 closed.
A. This power comes from fuse S44 and goes through the F381 switch before going to the E96 switch.
6. Manually energize the Driver's Backrest Adjustment Motor V45 from the seat switches and verify operation. Pins T10t/5 Red/Grey (RO/GR) and T10t/7 Grey (GR) are for the V45 motor. The polarity of the pins will make the motor move in one direction or the other.
A. This should also cause the scan data for switch operation to change when energized.
