Driver Seat power problem

Can I inquire as to whether or not the dealership was able to fix it or did they have to replace the motor? Was this a double digit repair or a triple digit repair? Thank you very much.

It started working on it's own!!! The dealership doesn't repair this kind of thing-only replace it. They first quoted $1200 to fix (as the whole seat/subframe- i.e. all 3 motors- had to be replaced), then between $550-$600 (as they found out only the front motor had to be replaced). I have taken the seat out several times- tapping the motor, twisting the 2 shafts, wiggling the wires, cursing it..... I finally got it to work, but only on one side (i.e. the seat would twist on its track instead of moving front and backwards "evenly". Then, out of the blue it started working again on it's own. I guess it's time to trade the thing in while it's working. For some reason, having someone sitting in the seat (while you're hitting the switch) seems to help the motor activate. Hope this helps.

Have a 1999 Chevy 1500 extended cab. Driver seat is not powered. Won't lock into place, keeps sliding back and forth. Was told I have to replace the whole seat and sliding track by Chevy Dealership. Anyone...


Remove the seat assembly turn it upside down cables come off the handle you pull on to slide seat, Follow these cables to 2 pawls that pivot on tracks and see if they are broken,bent,or just stuck and need cleaned and lubed.If you need new track slider assembly I use to be able to get them all the time from GM parts department and just replace tracks themselves.

Trouble With Seat Controls


There is an Open Campaign on the 06 Sonata - POWER SEAT SWITCH REPLACEMENT
(CAMPAIGN T82), but not on the 2001 sonata. If a 2001, it would be out of warranty - the control switch is most probably the problem... replace the switch. However, you wrote 2009 Hyundai Soinata - that would still be under warranty. Take it into a Hyundai Service Department - they'll diagnose the problem and fix it.

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

The drivers seat is stuck. It won't move forward or backward but all other seat functions work fine.


This is a seat slide motor assembly problem. I worked for an Infiniti dealer for many years as a service advisor, and this was a common issue on these vehicles. Most of the time you can take the **** end of a screwdriver and tap on the motor from the front of the seat and it should start working. It may work for a while but it will most certainly stop, how soon depends on how far gone it is. Eventually it will quit working altogether and tapping it won't work either. As a service advisor we probably replaced a hundred of those things. Last I knew the part was about 280.00 and about an hour labor. I would not take it to someone who doesn't really know Infiniti though as you may get the car back with an air bag light flashing or something. Dealers really don't try to rip people off, they generally want to do the right thing as they want you to come back for all your problems, keep that in mind.
