Question about Cars & Trucks

2007 Ford explorer drivers seat moves back and forward on it's own & the inside lights turn on.

Occasionally while driving my driver seat will move forward and backwards on it's own & the inside light's will turn on. Would this be something with the power seat motor or possibly something needing to be reprogrammed?

SOURCE: Drivers electic seat will not adjust

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

SOURCE: driver's side front seat won't move

It is likely the gear on the motor came off track with the seat. The seat will have to be removed and bottom panel disassembled.

SOURCE: Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward

There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

Why doesn't driver's power seat move forward or back?


All those seat motors are under the seat. The forward and back motor has cables that are used to move the seat. If a plug are cable came loose, easy to find. Can be a pain to fix. Not much room to work. Some times the seat has to come out. I think I would be more worried to what damage is on the bottom of the car first. Just saying.

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

My power driver seat will not move foward but it will go backward


The seat has a transmission to move the seat up, down, foward , & back. Screw jacks adjust the seat up & down. Cables move the seat forward & back. The cable it seems had to break or the end of the cable has rounded out. Possibly the cable rounded out the seat it rides in the transimission housing too. You will need to remove the seat to find out

The driver's seat (power seat) on my 2008 rav4 limited clicks when I accelerate, stop, go over a bump or turn. This is not a squeak, but rather a disctinct click. Could it be that the seat may be...


Hi,
Does the seat move while driving when you hit a bump?
When you make it move by pushing it, are you moving the WHOLE seat or just the SEAT BACK? Could it be the forward/back lean that's 'loose'?

Also, I'd try moving the seat ALL the way FORWARD and then ALL the way BACK to ensure it's on its rails. When it's @ each extreme, see if one position has more 'play'/movment than another.

Do you share the RAV w/another driver that changes the seat too? It could be gettting worn from constant adjustment (I doubt it, but a thought).

GL,
TD

The electric driver's seat on my 2000 Ford Explorer will not move


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.
