    05 Buick Rainier, power seat does not move front to back, everything else works (power,lumbar, heat, seat back and hieght, just the base does not move back to front. Memory keys work fine When you try to activate or move the seat with the switch on the side of the seat, you can hear something clicking, but there's no motion.



    I had wiggled the wire once and it "fixed" the problem temporarily, but that's not working this time, doe the servo motors have a history of locking up? Is there a saftey switch that might be preventing it from moving?



    Any help appreciated

    have the same problem as li4x4. When the the seat memory is activated by unlocking with keyless entry, and the seat is moving forward and either halted or moved backwards, it locks up. All other seat motors work fine, seat tilt, back, lumbar, and seat heaters, but it will not move forward or backwards. have a 2003 and 2007 envoy and both have the same problem. any help........

    I have the same problem with my passenger seat on my GMC Envoy 2002. Everything works fine, the motor seems to work because the seat tilt and back still move. It just will not budge going forward or backward

    lumbar support makes noise but doesn't push forward. Is there an air bag in the seat or is it mechanical?

Use a hammer and tap each of the travel rails on seat, this worked great for me, something just gets misaligned in there.

5/4/11...I have a 2006 GMC Envoy and the electric, front driver seat stopped going forward and back. It continued to go up/down and tilt ok. I banged the side of the seat near the switch with my hand a few times and presto...it works again!!!

MY DRIVERS SIDE POWER SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD BUT ALL OTHER PARTS OF THE SEAT WORK FINE I CAN HEAR SOMETHING CLICKING WHEN I TRY TO MOVE THE SEAT BUT THE SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD


Check under the seat for broken wires. Forward and backwards is the function most used and causes the wires to bend back and forth. you may need to remove the seat for inspection or you may be lucky and see the problem just by raising the seat as high as it will go.

Kia sedona front passenger seat stuck in forward position


Electric or manual??? If electric one of the motors has gone out. If the kids were playing with it they may have held the button down causing the motor to spin while the seat was all the way foward and it will just burn the motor up after so long. Also the switch could be bad. Unfortunatley being that its power there is no way to manually move the seat back without the motor turning or removing the seat and spinning the motor sprocket by hand...

2003 GMC ENVOY DRIVER POWER SEAT WILL NOT MOVE FRONT OR BACK


if it sounds like it wants to but doesnt, like you can hear the motor but it is locked up, here is a way to fix it.look at seat and see if it looks sort of cocked and you may have to straighten the seat by keeping rod in one side or other and spinning it until seat is straight. there are 2 flexy cables that run side to side and cause the seat to move. they usually have a black plastic coating on them.remove them both. with both off hit switch and see if you hear the motors.If so you should lubricate tracks with silicone spray or spray grease.put cables back into holes and it should work.the cable may give you a lil trouble coming out but just pull back and forth they wont break

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

2002 Envoy Forward / Back seat motor no longer functioning


First of all did you check the fuses? There should be one for the seats. If they're ok then get a Haynes Repair Manual for your 02 Envoy it'll probably even have illustrations showing you how to do it. Its my best advice, you can get one from just about any auto part store.

Power seat not working


My drivers side power seat stopped moving forward and back...back rest still worked. Took it to dealer and they charged me $60 to fix a "loose wire."
The seat worked for 2-3 days and quit again. Took it back to the dealer, and they now said it needed a new motor and track at a cost of $750+. Told them to forget it and called GM. GM will not cover it, and they have not covered a host of other problems like new radiator, new water pump, new instrument guage cluster, cracked exhaust manifold, and misaligned rear door/window air deflector (which they even have a bulletin out to all service department that it is poor design and the body shop should "shave the plastic down so it doesn't hit roof when door is open).

Back to the seat, I took a large, flat blade screwdriver and ran it along the seat guide rails and pryed on the seat mount slightly....guess what? It the power seat now moves forward and back.

Bottom line is GM manufactures junk and will not stand behind it. Now we know why the company is going bankrupt.

Driver side power seat front to back motor stuck forward


Take apart the drive box in front of seat track, on both sides with an allen wrench. You can then push the seat to get at the bolts to remove it. My trolley drive motor had bad brushes. I am now looking to replace the motor, if I can find the replacement.
