Question about 1995 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

Seat only works sometimes

Both front seats have started acting up. They don't move up or down, and don't tilt. The switch on the side of the seat only works sometimes after you hold it down for a few minutes. Whenever I try to move the seat up or down I hear a slight clicking/moaning noise coming from under the seat.

The really strange part is that when I use the memory button the seat moves perfectly, so I know the motors work ok. I was thinking that the control panel in the door was faulty, but both doors going out at the same time doesn't seem plausible.

You could have an issue with the body control module (BCM), GM can test it for proper function of the seats, there is no common problem so a trip to the dealer is good idea on this one.

I just need to take out my rear seat and rear passenger side plastic panneling to access the other side of passenger rear quater pannel


The seats should have a couple of bolts one on each side of the car, they are on the inside where the front of the seat meets the floor, sometimes they are partially hidden as the seat cushioning drops down over them. Remove both the bolts and then pick the front of the seat up and slide the back forward then work the seat belts through the seat. The panel should just gently pry off, try one corner gently to get it started, if it doesn't act as if it wants to budge then stop and inquire more in depth information on it.

I just purchased a 2007 jeep liberty sport


I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch. Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat. Good luck, Techjoel

2004 Chevy Tahoe seat controls not working properly

Power seat switch


It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.

Power front seats


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

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.
