Seat motor malfunction

The seat won't move forward or back, but the motor still moves the seat up & down & operates the tilt. is this a bad switch or is there a separate fuse just for this function (*where is the fuse box located?!?!?)

2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible power seat stopped moving forward. I had the seat moved all the way back. Switch still allows seat to go up and down and also tilt. Is the switch the problem?


It depends, a test light will make trouble shooting this quick. Unplug the motor that controls forward and back movement. Probe the vehicle side of the connector with your test light while operating the switch. If you have power going to the motor when the switch is activated then it is not a switch issue. It is either the motor or there is an obstruction not allowing the seat to move in the track.

1995 Lincoln Continental, passenger seat won't tilt back forward


YOU HAVE A SWITCH OR A TILT ACTUATOR MOTOR PROBLEM. LINCOLNS HAVE 5 OR 6 ELECTRIC MOTORS MOUNTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH FRONT SEAT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVING THE SEAT TO INSPECT .THEIR ARE ALSO CABLES ATTATCHED TO THESE MOTORS SO LISTEN WHEN YOU HIT THE TILT SWITCH DO YOU HEAR A MOTOR NOISE? IF YOU DO THEN YOU MAY HAVE A BAD CABLE.

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz that I just bought, and the drivers side seat will not move forward, it will go in all other directions, but won't move forward...any suggestions?


There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

Why would the drivers seat not move forward but still go up or down on a 1998 Cadilac Deville?


This is due to a bad switch or seatmotor, the seat uses diffrent motors to control the seat so seat can still tilt but not move back or forward, this best way to know which ic the problem is with a testlight, hold the switch to move forward or back and test for power and a ground to that motor, if theres power and ground then motor is bad, if theres no power then switch is bad, hope this helps.

Power seat will not reverse - electric switch will drive seat forward but reverse setting will not do anything. Are there seperate motors for forward and reverse and is there a way to move the seat...


There are three motors. The one motor moves the seat forward and reverse, one for up and down and one for the tilt. So you may have a problem with the switch. It's possible the switch contacts inside have worn out.
