2001 Chevrolet Tahoe - Power seat

Hello, my drivers side power seat in my 2001 Tahoe only slides back and forward for a short distance when engaging the switch. Nothing is blocking the seat rails. It appears that something has gone electrically. Any suggestions on how to fix. Please advise.

The most likely cause is the switch, replace it.

Driver power seat not working correctly . 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Driver seat will go up and down and starts to go back but stops and doesn't go forward make a zzzzzzzzzzznoise. Worked fine yesterday today it...


this can be a few things, you may have a bad motor, or a broken cable to motor or seat track and last maybe a broken track, the best way to diagnose would be to remove the seat flip it over while still conected,meaning; remove the bolts at the bottom of the seat then push seat back toward the rear seat this way you can see the track, now move the controls as you watch the track,it may go sideways instead of straight back or foward this will show you what side is not working from there you can see if its a cable broken or track or motor not turning .

My driver side power seat will not move forward or back. Up and down, and recline still work. Is this most likely a fuse, motor, or switch problem?


hello dschlig, most common for these seats are the motors. I would recommend raising the seat as high as possible. While trying to activate the seat in the forward/back positions, see if you hear or feel a clicking in the motor under the seat. The motor can be recognized closest to the carpet, and has 2 rods going to each seat track. If the motor clicks, inspect the connector and make sure nothing dislodged it. If it is ok, you can use a small hammer and an extension and lightly tap the motor to see if it will maybe release. If you know how to use a volt-meter, you can also check for power to the motor connector when sliding the switch in either direction. The motor can be replaced seperately.

Go under the seat and check both slide tracks for anything jamming it up...I've removed gloves, socks, candy boxes etc from tracks. Also if its not a power seat, check that when you move the release lever it is connected by a stiff wire to the opposite side. That wire releases the right side track. If broken or stretched, it wont.
