    I have the same problem but more.



    The "A" fuse controls the seats and keyless entry. Both do not work. I went to pull the fuse and it was hot tothe touch. Once pulled the fuse checks out OK using a continuity tester.



    Any help would be appreciated.

    driver seat control not working -- passenger side okay. Do I have to take it to a car repair shop or can I check something myself. It's not the fuse.

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.

Check fuses if they are good it is probably the switch

Depending upon the size of the "something", it could be under the seat or under the console. To get the seat working, go to the UNDER-HOOD FUSE/RELAY BOX and check 20A POWER SEAT FUSE 27. While you are at it, check 20A POWER SEAT HEIGHT FUSE 31.

Power seat controls are not working


First of all, check under the seat where there should be a cluster of wires. Sometimes if the power seat is used alot by sliding back and forth, without this cluster of wires being secured, occassionally a wire can get cut.
The runners on which the seats move are metal and cut wires easily. Secondly, the plug also located under the seat could have gotten wet or accidently came unplugged from someones feet in the back or objects and debris.
Another possibilty that will keep power seats from working is the power seat motor. In most cases, this small electrical motor is located directly under the power seat control panel or very nearby
Also you could check the fuses in the fuse box, located directly above the driver's left foot area. Power seats are usually on thier own circuit which means if the power seat fuse is blown, that is the only malfunction that will be noticed, versus other circuit which have many power items on one circuit. For example dash light, clock, and temp lights don't work, one fuse will fix the problem. Power seats operate on one fuse circuit which could have one or more fuses depending on the options of your seats. E.g. heated or not, lumbar, etc.

Power seat


I have a 1995 Jimmy and the power seats didn't work. I put my own power wire with a fuse between the seat and the live wire under dash. It works fine.
