finished 'repairing' in my '00 Outback wagon, which moved forward
inconsistently, and never completely lifted the front edge of the seat up.
We like to move it back when we get out. Up to now, we had learned
we could move it forward by hitting it like a karate chop (not good) !
I removed the 4 bolts mounting the seat to the floor, tilted it back, popped the toggle switch handle off & removed the 2 screws holding the side cover. (I discovered the switch WORKED now!)
I then disconnected the switch harness & bent the plastic cover back far enough to unscrew the switch from the inside. I inspected & spray-cleaned the switch, & in re-installing discovered the switch front plastic lobe (or knob) that snaps into the handle was loosening & finally broke off! It works just using the rear lobe without the handle on.
I left it hanging beside the seat for now until I order another switch. But, also, the rear inner screw that mounts the switch stripped during attempted re-installation, which I will have to address.
Bottom line: it was a mechanical failure, not an electrical one! I could re-install without the handle & it would work. Ugly. Other bottom line: this was my teacher-wife's commuter car, I am inheriting it this summer when our new 2010 Prius arrives! It has 190,000 miles on it !

Check the fuse box and replace the fuse if it is bad. If this makes them work and the fuse blows again you will have to trace the wiring and or heating units to single out the problem.
