Steering Column Adjustment Issue
 
I have a new to me 02 4.6is and the steering columm adjustment does not function at all but the seat adjustment works fine. I noticed at the same time the memory seat does not work either. The M will light up but the numbered buttons do not save when pressed. I am pretty sure there are 2 motors and it would be unlikely that both would go out? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

they both are controlled with the module on the seat (where the memory buttons are). Does your memory work? When we bought my wifes X5, when had the same symptom. Replacing the module with the seat switches and memory fixed the problem.

It's that module. I bought a used one for like $30. It restored the position control but not the memory. So, the module can have multiple levels of failures

Thanks! I will locate a used one and post back the results after installation...

I didn't take the old one apart for post mortem but there is a good chance it just would need a solder reflow

I have an error for no communication with driver seat memory module so I'm pretty confident that is the culprit...

This came out of my vehicle after realizing it wasn't for my comfort seats. I'd sell it for $40. All functions and memory worked when it was in my X.

I have comfort seat too with the electric headrest function. This piece is missing that...
