SOURCE: seat won't go up and down on my 1998 mustang

You probably have a dirty switch or a bad connection to the electric motor.Follow the wires to the motor under the seat, unplug them and then plug them back up a few times.If this doesn't fix the problem,you need to replace the switch or the motor.

the switch has failed or a combination of the switch and motor. the switch will be the easiest to replaace as you will have to remove and on some vehicle partially disassemble the seat to do the motor. The switch os mounted on the plastic panel which is held to the seat usually by 2 - 4 screws.

See if the slide rail is bent. We just picked one up in a wrecking yard, leather seat perfect condition from a '98 Explorer, it has the same problem. If you put it back too far, it gets stuck and won't go forward. Check it for a bend or a burr in the metal which can be filed. Otherwise, ??

Front seat will not slide forward? The seat will move up and down, tilt, and the lumbar works? Even the heated/cooling seat works? What do I need to look for and how do I fix it:?


The power seat in the truck has 3 motors, one of them is not working, the most common cause of this is the power seat switch is defective, it is often the forward and reverse seat positioning switch that fails because it is the one that is most used. If the switch checks ok then you will need to replace the the power seat track assembly, Ford does not sell any parts for the track, it is only available as one complete unit, I know this because i retired form a Ford dealer. Please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

Maybe you problem is with the switch, or check if power seat circuit has the regular fuse or rather one of those thermal ones.
Passenger compartment fuse panel
The fuse panel is located on the left hand side of the instrument panel facing the drivers side door.

How do i put my backseat down on my 1999 jeep cherokee?


first, you have to lift up the seat it self, and tilt it forward towards the front seat using the loop handle. (the back of the seat goes from 3:00 up to 12:00)
then pull the lever on the top of the seat-back (near the head rest) and move it from 12:00 to 9:00.

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
