Is anyone having trouble with their cursor when posting a reply ?
When I click on to type, I can't get the cursor to do anything. All I get is the arrow pointing to where I want to start typing.
Eventually the cursor will appear then go away again. When I am typing, the cursor will freeze for a bit then return and any-
thing I typed doesn't come on screen until after I stop typing. It only does this on the club's site.
Pam's been in Las Vegas for the past week with our daughter and we talk every day and everything is OK.
I talked to my computer guy and Paul thinks the trouble is in the club's system. Any ideas what's going on ?

All related wires should be inspected, not just the ground.  Everything is a lot easier with the right tools and information in hand (e.g. a circuit diagram), but intermittent problems are sometimes a bit more difficult to pinpoint.  Remember that TSB regarding intermittent battery run-down caused by a possible pinched wire that keeps the BCM from going to sleep?  Has that been investigated yet?  It may or may not be related, but it's something else to look into.  

I recently repaired some broken trunk wiring on a friend's Infiniti G35 for the *second* time.  The design is poor; 8 wires are routed near a dual-pivot hinge which requires 2 sharp bends in the harness.  There were reports of them breaking in the warranty period!  Not only do the copper strands break, but the insulation disintegrates, allowing for short-circuits given that 4 of the 8 wires are grounds.  On that note, why did they need 8 wires for a trunk release solenoid, open/close switch and reverse lamps?!?  Of course, thanks to Murphy, the problem wasn't discovered until the boot lid could no longer be released, and per modern standards, there's no external key release!  The car is a cruel joke.  To avoid having to repeat this exercise again (on a positive note, the previously repaired areas with 20+ year old GM wiring, were still intact), a good section of the wiring harness was replaced with some of the following:

You wouldn't believe the flexibility of 150 strand, silicone-jacketed wire!

There’s nothing under the seat.  Every time I get in I press 1 for my preset. When I park and remove the key the seat moves back auto magically to ease exit.  I greatly appreciate these features.

 Your explanation makes me think it might simply be “fatigue” of the wire. Is it easy to find and replace?

According to this link, the MSM (Memory Seat Module) and its ground are located near the driver's seat.

If the ground wire is not able to move freely with seat movement, there's a chance that excessive, repeated bending could result in an internal break, which could lead to an intermittent loss of memory.  Such a condition would become more frequent until there's a complete loss of function.  Is there anything "extra" under the front seat that might restrict movement of the ground (or any other wires) while the seat moves back and forth?

My daily driver (06 DTS) has lost the seat memory a couple of times in the last 2 months.  It has a little over 172k.  The battery is about 2 years old and according to the reading on my dash is charging in the 14.2-14.3 range consistently.  No problems starting.

Back in 2012 the driver seat quit.  It went to 2 shops (2nd was the Cadillac dealer) and between the 2 shops cost me over 1,000 to fix. 

Any ideas of what might be going on?

I think it's safe to say that the worst of this winter is gone bye-bye but I'm not going to hold my breath.
I'm itching to get my Eldorado uncovered so I can get it ready for summer. I have a bunch things that
have to be taken care of so I can use it. I have to get that passenger side exhaust manifold leak fixed.
We don't know if it's the manifold gasket that leaks or if the manifold itself is cracked. You can't see
anything because all the pollution equipment is in the way. Can cast iron be welded so it's strong enough
to not come apart from all that exhaust heat or should I try to find another manifold ?
I have to get the bumpers off so I can replace some of the right side filler pieces and the vinyl roof
needs to be re-coloured
I'm not sure if I should have a tune up done. The last time one was done was 10 years ago but I haven't
put more than 25,000 - 30,000 miles on it since then so I don't know if it really needs it.

 That was Porter. He spent a couple of summers rebuilding the body and building some wonderful mods into it. I haven't hear any progress reports for some time now. maybe we'll get an update.

Has anyone been keeping up on that 26 Cadillac Hearse street rod project from a few years ago ?
It would be great to see how far along it is because it should close to being finished by now.
I can't remember who it was that was telling us about it.

The coolant may have been a bit low, but I cant say for sure.
It is keeping cool now.
I'll just have to keep an eye on it and I'll put a new thermostat in for safe measure.

 Good to hear. But the question is still there why it overheated in the first place.
