Driver's seat cannot go back (only forward)

My car's driver's seat (power control) only allows me to bring it forward. Is there a way to reset it so that it will go back, it is now too close for drivers. Help ASAP please, I need to go to work!

The switch is bad and needs replaced. spray some lubricant down in the switch assembley and move the switch forcefully back and forth several times and see if you can get it to move back

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?

Yes, you will need to unbolt the seat at all 4 corners and then un-plug the harness and remove. Once you have the seat out you can turn it over and see the power motors. determine which one controls the forward back movement and replace it.

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.

Removal of the driver seat of my 1988 acura legend


I'm not certain of the layout of the bolts on your particular model, but there should be 4 bolts, one at each end of the seat tracks (the things the seat slides back and forth on), attaching the tracks to the floor. You may need to slide the seat back to access the front bolts, and forward again to get the back ones. Tilt the seat back right forward to allow you to get the seat out the door. If the seat has electric controls there will be some plugs to disconnect under it. If there are any yellow coloured plugs, DO NOT disconnect them without disconnecting the negative terminal off the battery and waiting for 5 minutes. The yellow plug is an airbag system plug, and if the battery is not disconnected the airbags could potentially deploy. Make sure the battery remains disconnected for the entire time that the yellow plug is disconnected, and reconnect the battery AFTER the yellow plug. If there isn't a yellow plug, don't worry.

Hope this helps.

Power seat, driver side


If only one seat is not working the fuse/relay is ok or both would not work, most likely cause based on experience is the control switch, then the power seat motor.

Driver side car seat


The seat may be too far forward, and when it is at the forward limits, the seat sticks. I get in the seat, and I press the back button whilst pushing hard with my feet against the floor.
