My driver side seat won't go all the way forward. But when I let it back it goes back and goes down. When I move it forward it lifts up high but don't go forward enough for me.


Seat adjustment ranges are sometimes limited and sometimes there is a fault, such as a coin or something falling into one of the runners.

Cars intended for the premium market often have forward/back, up/down and sometimes tilt adjustment for the driver seat while for the small car, basic or budget market usually only have forward or back. Because on average a person who has shorter legs and needs the seat forward will also have a shorter body so enterprising designers have made the seat runners of some models slope upwards to lift the driver as the seat is moved forward.

Adjustable steering columns are fairly common, though only in the rise/fall plane. I haven't seen a telescopic column for many years. What is really needed is adjustable pedals but designers and manufacturers are very reluctant to go down that avenue, though there are companies specialising in such modifications.

You need to be on the ground on your knees with a good light looking under the seat to see if the available adjustment range takes the seat to the true limit of its travel in both directions.

Driver power seat


The automatic driver's seat may have been programed not to move forward when the key is in and go back when it's taken out. Or are you saying it doesn't move forward, back and not at all from the control on door panel?

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.
