Gremlin in Connoisseur seats, or Ghost in car? by stormbind

Hi all,

This has happened at least twice: I lock the connoisseur and everything seems fine.

Later, I have witnessed this once, the alarm goes off without an external provocation.

When I return to the car, the connoisseur seat has reclined to maximum!

Now if you had manual seats i would be excited but as they are electric then there is obvioulsy an issue somewhere, do you have a Mk 1 with seat control from the key fob ?

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I had something like this happen earlier this year. I cured it by pulling the fuse for the towbar electrics - wired using the Rover kit. A couple of months later I needed to use the towbar, replaced the fuse and it has been OK since (brave words eh).

So no idea what my actual problem was.
