Found problem. Rail that the seat belt moves on as the seat is moved front to back was binding. Plastic had a nick in it and as the seat moved the seat belt caught in it and stopped the seat assembly from moving forward. It looks like 10 years of wear on the plastic caused the problem. Now I have to replace the part if available. Thanks.

1997 Sable Driver Seat Only Moves 2 Inches At A Time


Could be the switch, but it sounds like the motor is going bad. However, I dont know if you tried to lubricating the tracs. Some of these seats are on ball bearings and some on nylon bushings, either way they need to be lubricated once in a great while. Have you tried to help the seat to move by pushing in the direction it is going to see if it speeds up. If so, the seat motor is going out or the tracks are binding up. I hope this helps.

Passenger seat in 1999 Pontiac sunfire is jammed forward


normally the seat tracks are bolted to the floor or riser. It is possible that when the seat was moved forward the track moved over the head of a mounting bolt and will not return. check for interference between track and rail while trying to return seat.

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

I pulled the seat all the way forward on my 1990 Mercedes 420 see and it will not go back. When I push the seat back button I hear a faint click but no movement. My passenger seat doesn't make a noise...


use the buttons to move it back but shake the seat side to side. sounds like your track on the seat has gotten in a bind with the one on the floor. just wiggle and jiggle till it starts to move and dont go all the way forward in the future

I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz that I just bought, and the drivers side seat will not move forward, it will go in all other directions, but won't move forward...any suggestions?


There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

I am having trouble with my 94 Chrysler concorde the motorized driver seat isn't moving positions and I have tried everything, I don't want to force it cause I don't want to break the seat, please, any...


the seat adjuster assembly is bad. i was a chrysler tech for 15 years. the motor that runs the forward and back is either bad or the tracks are bad and it is binding. you can not get parts for it. you will have to buy a new complete adjuster or see if a boneyard may have a good used aseembly. Don

'96 monte carlo autoseat wotn move forward or backward


Individual motors for horizontal and vertical movement. Try moving seat while looking under at motors. Once you find the one that is not moving, try holding switch to foreward position and tap on motor with a screwdriver handle. This may get it going long enough to move so you can reach the pedals easier.
