Memory seat, working? No light

Hi all
I finally got my manual, I'm messing around trying to get the memory seats workings. I have both keys of different colours. I went through the procedure as instructed in the manual but when I press the set button no light comes on as it says it will. Does this mean it's not working, do these bulbs go or could it be something more?
Thanks in advance
gary

Pull the gator back in the door and you'll find that its a break in the wiring, nothing to do with the SET light... resolder and away you go... Seemmpppllees!

Bigger Fix, if you have the time is to remove the door panel and unplug the loom from the inside the door, then remove the kick panel from inside the car and trace the loom back through the gator and cut inside the car. The next part is to recreate the loom, I used exact coloured wire off Ebay and trimmed the loom near the plug leaving enough for tails to solder to and remake the loom then, using rubberised insulation tape I made up a new loom and solder it all back in. Remember to extend the loom by 6" as its the shortness that causes the loom to break over time. Creating a new loom does away with any future breaks in the wires as they are exposed and go brittle over time hence the break. Good Luck! I've got 4Tom to thank for my repair.. Good advice!

"Gator" is the big rubber corrogated thing in the door jam as you open the drivers door & The "kick panel" is the panel inside the door that has the hood pull on it.
