Electric driver seat motor inop

Th driver seat of my 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan will not move for and aft. It is stuck in the aft position. I don't know if it is a switch problem or a motor problem, but the seat does respond to other inputs of the seat switch like up, down, tilt, etc.

It sounds like the switch is bad, because the motor works in other positions. Those switches are not hard to replace either. You can go to your nearest salvage yard for one. You just unscrew the screws that hold the switch in place and unplug it from the back of the switch and thats it.

Heater blower motor replacement -1997 Dodge Grand Caravan


Remove the cover plate on the passenger side of the heater box, 3-4 screws.
Unplug the motor assembly, remove 3-4 more screws that hold the motor in place and pull it down from its position. Get an aftermarket motor and installed it in the original housing with the original squirrel cage.
Installation is the reverse of removal.

The windshield wipers are stuck vertically and now


This sounds like the wiper motor has failed. You can pick one up at the local parts store. If not mechnically savvy, I would recommend taking to shop for working in tight areas that these can be. But, otherwise, the motor is on the fire wall, unplug, remove screws(4), exchange with new, and reassemble as removed. I hope this helps.
