2001 Honda Accord electric seat moves up and down but not forward and backward.


Could be a bad switch or motor, or something jamming the seat movement.
Can you hear the motor running on both switches and directions?
I don't think they would have two fuses for the seat, but that might be a possibility.
Hope this helps.

Passenger power seat on my 2002 CLK will move forward only and not backwards, how do I get it to work ?


Wiggle the switch that controls the problem movement, if the seats moves or jitters a little the switch is defective and will solve the problem. If nothing happens when you do this simple test then go under the seat and probe the large wiring connector the power seat transmission, when you move the switch to rear seat travel position and see if any of the wires light up, if it does show voltage when the switch is toggled then the seat transmission may be at fault. I think you have a switch problem based on my expereinces but do the testing because the part is not cheap.

Hi everyone I own a CLK200 Kompressor 2002 model. I have the following problem, driver seat moving forward when pressing backward function on the power seat button. I already checked the fuse in the trunk...


First try as fallow, get in to the seat, then keep tight your foot on floor and give a good press backward to the seat and operate the seat switch towards back, just release and do it again keep going that way it will start to move back words, if it start to move do it few time and do it every time you get in to the car at least two time per day continue it for one week, It will be OK otherwise need chassis no for more information,

I have a 1998 clk230 .The drivers seat control button will only move seat forward when presed for backward.consequently the only way to get the seat to go backward is to press the memory button .


You may need to run the seat all the way forward then all the way backwards in order to resyncronize the seat. If that doesn't fix the problem then most likely the seat switch is faulty. I've seen this problem several times with the clk and the e-class.

The electric seats will not adjust forward or backward. The up and down and recline works good though.


Look on the outside edge of where the seat back and bottom meet.There is supposed to be a spring there that holds a peice against a micro switch.That is what controls the seat so when you fold it foward the seat slides to allow access to the rear seat.The plastic that holds the spring on the one side breaks.If you can find the metal peice and hold it against the switch you will be able to atleast move the seat.

The electric front seats both stopped moving


Check the fuse box for a blown fuse, both seats may operate on one fuse depending on the model of vehicle and the fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.

The drivers seat is stuck. It won't move forward or backward but all other seat functions work fine. hi and please help..I have the same problem with the driver seat..it will go up and down and the back...


I'm assuming this is a power seat. If so, there are separate motors that control the various functions of the seat such as forward/backard, recline, lumbar support, etc. It could be that the motor or an electrical connection to the motor for the forward/backward motion is faulty. Normally all of the motors would be on the same power circuit, so if some of the functions are working then it is probably not a blown fuse.

Just one other personal observation, I have actually seen an instance where some loose pocket change had spilled under the seat and a quarter had become wedged in the track that the seat slides in and had jammed the tracks so tightly that the seat would not move.

One thing to note is whether or not you hear anything when you try to move the seat forward/backward. If you hear a click or a buzz when you press the button then that could mean that something is physically jamming the seat tracks. If you don't hear anything when you press the button, then that more than likely means a problem with the motor or the electrical connection to the motor.
