My power drivers seat stopped working

I was cleaning my car and had the seat all the way forward, then the motor stopped working. Is there a way to manually back the seat? I've already put alot of $ into the car on repairs the last year and dont want to buy a new power seat if i can just get the thing all the way back.

Wiring diagram for driver side power seat on 2005 Mustange gt convert.


if there was no electrical work done on it you don't need a diagram it sounds like you need to unplug the seats connector clean it and use conductive grease on the female part of it a little grease goes a long way if still no luck go to the switch for the seat and do the same thing this should solve the problem it's not the cable because the seat uses the same one to go forward and back and it's not the motor so either the switch has a dirty connector or the contacts inside the switch need to be lubed or it needs to be replaced altogether or the seat motor connector needs to be cleaned and lubed either way this sounds like a contact problem make sure they are shiny clean then lubricate with carbon conductive grease not dielectric that's the wrong stuff and it will stop the contact from being made you can also use those emery board nail files that your mom or girls use they can be trimmed to fit inside and do a great job of sanding away electrical oxidation and contact burns that stop the electrical current from going through the switch they need to be shiny and lubricated have fun and good luck you should find your problem now post back with results o.k.stephen

Power seat stopped working


There are 2 motors under the seat that control how it moves (one for forward/back and one for up/down) Check to make sure the connections are still connected/clean. If they are then your motor burnt out or there is something jamming the rollers on the track the seat rides on.

The driver seat will not go forward


if going backward is working,and foward is not,, easy
,1st determine what is defective-so u know what to replace/repair-2 things only ,[1-switch or 2- motor under d seat]
by presing the backward swicth,, you can hear the sound of the motor running and u can see the seat is going backward...
1-now by pressing the foward switch, and you hear the motor running but not that strong like the rear ..and the seat move an inche /a little and stop,,.then u have a defect weak motor,
2- now by pressing the foward swicth and u dont hear any motor running then the switch is most likely defective
defective switch -repair- spray contact cleaner,remove cover switch,penetrate inside
defective motor-repair-remove motor replace inside carbon,,.chiepest way not to spend to much money..
i suggest even once a month,lubricate all power seat/even not powerseat/,door hinges/.trunk door/.power antenna./ .by spraying lubricating oil,. for maintanace,..you can save a lot..

2005 KIA Optima EX 8-way power seat problem


Hi there,

There are numbers of possible causes to your problem. There might be something causing the movable parts to stuck up. It could be the limit switch, or the motor itself. To test the motor, you can connect it directly to the battery then check if the motor runs smoothly. Then reverse the connection and observe if it reverse smoothly. If the motor is OK, then your problem is with the switch...

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.

Motor on the seat may have gone out, contacts in switch got dirty or worn, or assembly reached limit and stuck. Try sitting in it pushing back hard and adjust. If not youll need to replace switch,b take seat apart to fix or replace.
