Six way front seat issue...I screwed up

I managed to get fresh water into the driver side back seat floor (don't ask) to the level that it has evidently compromised the six-way-seat wiring and or motor......the switch does nothing. I have dried out the flooring, run a hair dryer on the motor and checked the fuse (is it the 30amp silver fuse in the dash?)......still nothing. Short of removing the seat I'm searching for solutions. The seat is in the full rear position so not sure how difficult it will be to get to rear track bolts. Appreciate any suggestions , possibly more time will dry everything out??? thanks!

Re: Six way front seat issue...I screwed up

The "30amp silver fuse in the dash" is actually a circuit breaker if it's OEM. How did you test it?

What year vehicle? I can give you a link to the factory manual download, if it's a 4th Gen.

Gen 4 '95 Z28 convertible. There's 2 30amp breakers, swapped them to check.

Since it's a 95, Shoebox has the wiring diagram available.

Thanks! I see that each motor has an internal circuit breaker. I can only hope that these circuits will dry out at some point. If not I'll have to figure out how to get to those track bolts and take the seat out. If so it'll be replaced by a manual adjusting seat. any suggestions? thanks again!

Fixed it! Hot wire under seat was corroded in two. Royal pain working under the seat to splice the wires but all's dry and well now. Schematic was real helpful, tks!
