Power seat, mirrors and pedals do not work

My drivers side power seat, mirror adjust and pedal adjustments have stopped working. Searched high and low and found similar threads (different year and models) and must thread suggest a bad splice in a orange wire with a light green stripe coming from the fuse box. Seems consistant response on several threads. However I have looked and find no orange wire with light green stripe. Could this be the same problem, but they used a different color or location? Any other suggestions? Anything can help.

fixed it yet?

If not , can you run a jumper to the affected switches to see if they power up? If they work then, go back to the fuse panel and with a test light check every fuse there and see if there is power there. Its mostly going to be a search and find project to find out where the problem is. I saw you are from Texas, where abouts? Shoot me a PM if you got any more question or if I can help

Intermittent, i.e. works one day, or partially one day then not at all the next, sounds like a failing relay, to be honest. I have taken a quick look at the fuseboxes, and I am not seeing anything. Wonder if there is a seat control module or if its in the GEM. I'll keep looking to see if maybe I can help.

The more I look, the more the bad splice seems to be the culprit. The control power for the driver power seat, memory switch, adjustable pedals and mirrors all are on 5 Amp fuse #3. The power circuit is orange with a light green stripe and is spliced just below the fuse box. At that splice joint the wires can be broken. Cutout the bad part of the wires, splice in a piece of wire and all should work.

Thank you a lot. I'm having trouble finding this splice and even the fuse. The number three is a relay in the engine compartment.

Sorry, I was looking at the wrong fuse box diagram. Let me dig a little more now that I found the right one.

Fuse #12 in the Smart Junction Box (should be next to the passengers right foot) feeds the mirrors and seats. Check it first

Okay well I went with a fuse tester and couldn't get power at 13 which says not used in the manual (spare) and I replaced it and everything worked again. I changed it with another 15 amp and all is well! Got mirrors back seat adjustable pedals..
