seat's are stuck


you said seats so I am assuming you mean 6-way driver and passenger. You also say you looked at all (my) fuses but actually the seats are controlled by 20A circuit breaker 7 in the battery junction box. If certain functions don't work, it may be due to failure of the seat adjust switch or lumbar adjust switch or any of the five adjusting motors

power seat moves up and down but not back and forth


If you do not always work on your own vehicles or have the
factory manuals to follow trouble charts, you won't be able to
do a thing with your seat problem

You already know that

I personally buy every manual including wiring diagrams
for all my vehicles, as soon as I purchase them

I have done this for almost 50 years, so I'm not normal

I would go to a wiring diagram, knowing no more than you,
& at least start checking seat switches,of coarse given my
electrical skills

After that, you need to go to workshop manuals to disable the
air bag system, so you don't get hurt etc & then remove the seat,
to continue on

I would guess your off to a repair shop, or you just live with the issue

Electric seats in 1999 Siverado move back & forth


the tracks for the seats are pressed out aluminum. they have motors that control the seat adjuster. it seems when worn they will not stay in place and need to be replaced. If anyone that is very overweigh this will create this problem sooner than expected
The seats are made to withstand 250 max. I have sold tracks by GM for 30 years and know personally what they can do in time from weight
(nothing personal)

How to remove a heater blower motor on a 2004 Dodge Caravan.


Please don"t forget to rate:

Removal & Installation
CAUTION The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before removing the blower motor assembly. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bag, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.


  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable, then wait 2 minutes before proceeding with the removal. This will effectively disable the air bag system preventing possible personal injury.
  2. Remove the glove box from the instrument panel.

  2. Disconnect the blower motor wiring connector.
  3. Remove the blower motor wiring grommet and feed the wiring through the blower motor housing.
  4. Remove the blower motor mounting screws.
