50 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesoder.
The white Mustang GT was all that and a bag of chips (dating myself) until I got along side of him and out pulled him a few times from 30-60 or so. I finally got next to him at a light and he didn't want to play anymore. LOL! The next light he was behind me so I floored it anyways and looking back I think there was a couple of minivans actually pulling past him. He must have been butthurt by a SHO before maybe? I also notice there are a lot of GT owners that sure don't know how to drive a stick, that's for sure. I've beaten them before up to 70 or so when I was completely stock. They look/sound cool and I'd definitely take one but sure seem pretty tame down low.

Anyways, on my last jaunt from the stoplight something popped in my lumbar support and it definitely ain't the same. I played around with the switch and am not feeling anything change although I don't remember the last time I even touched it It anyways. Probably doesn't help any that I push down 750lbs. on the go pedal. It's a strange habit of mine I can't seem to kick for whatever reason. I must look extremely constipated while street racing. Good thing for the tinted windows. Has anyone had this happen to them?

No, I have never, or heard of anyone who has, become constipated from street racing :D

I had the same mysterious pop and the Lumbar/Active Motion seats no longer worked. I did not have a Gearhead Tune. I more attributed it to 90K miles and 6 years on the car.

Is it the massage portion that no longer works or the lumbar itself? IIRC both are air actuated, so it's possible you boosted that chair to the moon and popped off one of the vacuum lines for the support haha

On the Active Motion seats, it sounds electronic. There were massage and lumbar settings and you could not go outside the parameters on the screen. I know my passenger seat would sound like a motor trying to achieve a desired position and a sensor not giving the correct feed back. (Repetitive humming with a pop) I would be surprised if they had separate designs for the non active seat that still had lumbar. I guess one way to chaeck that would to be to add the active seats in ForScan.

Yep they're different designs. I was trying to add them to my MKS from my parts s h o and they were quite a bit different. Gave up on it

Yes 2010-2012 could get the Active Motion seats. It would have 4 switches. A horizontal, a vertical, a 4 way circle, and a single function.
