U will need to replace the power seat transmission, the gears are most likely stripped out, not uncommon, this part is $800 so i would suggest u try to locate a used one.

SOURCE: 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.

The motor and gears in the track are getting stuck.Either a weak motor or gears stuck. Try this procedure as follows;--- Have somebody sit in the back and push the seat forwards at the frame while
you push the button forwards.Don't push at the headrest but as low as possible

To avoid getting stuck again don't put the seat all the way backwards, just
move it forwards ahead to get the tension of the track/motor.
-------- But if the seat get pushed forward but if its still doing the same then its weak motor and it has to be replaced.But if its not getting pushed forward to its last.Then its bent tracks from which the seat moves.The tracks needs to be checked from which the seat moves back and forth.
The owners manual says about power seats. "It states that if the power seat doesnt't work, put the seat back section of the seat down to it's lowest position a couple of times. This somehow resets the body module for the driver seat." ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Power seat won't slide back, black plug is hanging out


That is the seat heater plug most likely and you car is not equipped with that accessory. All cars come with the same wiring. Does the power seat switch have 12 volts present?

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

Hi

Check the wiring under the seat, they often snag and it will cut into the wire, so what happens is to make it go forward it will send the power down the motor one way but when you are pushing back that wire may be slightly cut or touching, it definitely sounds like a wiring fault.

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.

Broken power seat - cannot slide backward. Can I slide it manually?


Ck for debri or other objwcts in way of tracks Does it try to move? If so, there is an obstruction, If not trying or no sound when switch is moved, could very well be a fuse or the forward limit switch is being affected by excess forward travel. Move the switch yo back and without kinda help it. if it's trying.

The lever to move the driver's seat forward and backward doesn't


The reason is that your sliding grips have been slipped and therefore jammed at one position.

Remove the seat open it's sliding grips and replace it.

The drivers seat is stuck. It won't move forward or backward but all other seat functions work fine. hi and please help..I have the same problem with the driver seat..it will go up and down and the back...


I'm assuming this is a power seat. If so, there are separate motors that control the various functions of the seat such as forward/backard, recline, lumbar support, etc. It could be that the motor or an electrical connection to the motor for the forward/backward motion is faulty. Normally all of the motors would be on the same power circuit, so if some of the functions are working then it is probably not a blown fuse.

Just one other personal observation, I have actually seen an instance where some loose pocket change had spilled under the seat and a quarter had become wedged in the track that the seat slides in and had jammed the tracks so tightly that the seat would not move.

One thing to note is whether or not you hear anything when you try to move the seat forward/backward. If you hear a click or a buzz when you press the button then that could mean that something is physically jamming the seat tracks. If you don't hear anything when you press the button, then that more than likely means a problem with the motor or the electrical connection to the motor.
