Default Driver seat

Hi guys, have a 2010 mustang GT and a couple weeks ago the power seat fuse blew. Replaced it and today it blew again? Never had a problem with this over the past three years until now and hardly ever use my power seat or lumbar for the matter. Any suggestions of where i should start tracking the problem? My first would be starting under the seat to see if any wires are getting pinched. Also, I am not a huge guy, only 170. Anyone else here having issues with their fuse on a 2010??? thanks guys...

Could be the power seat motor shorting. Or a line shorting somewhere else.

Or maybe it is just a line getting pinched and shorting it.

So it took a couple weeks to blow again? how often did you use it after your replaced the fuse?

I use it once every few days, that is about it. Unless when i take it to the car wash and the guys there are moving it to vacuum. I did notice when i get in that the seat is all the way back...

The harness for it runs under the carpet to the left side of the seat. Check the front-right mounting bracket under the seat, and look at the wiring and loom. You may have a cut wire, especially if they vacuumed under the seat or you had something under there and the seat was moved. It could also be the motor control or switch. You could unplug the connector under the seat and put in another fuse; then you'd know if the issue is in the seat and/or seat wiring or in the wire before connecting to the seat.
If it was me, I'd use a volt/ohmeter to check for a short on the power feed.
