I had the same problem when I first got my 2003 also. I played with it for a while and kept pushing down the levers on both sides and it finally caught. I haven't had a problem since.

More than Likely Stripped out. This is a Dealer only Repair. You could get the Parts from the Parts Counter at the Dealership and repair this yourself But, It is not Easy!

i had this problem on my 96 chevy, basically theres a set of ratcheting gears that lock the seat in place in the various positions. sometimes over time or due to abuse one side or the other gets stripped out and the seat will no longer lock into place. i found a ripped up seat on Craigslist that was in a part out truck and bought it cheap then took both seats in the an upholstery shop, between the junked out seat (15 bucks) and the labor at the shop (50bucks) it cost me 65 bucks to fix, hope this helps

Testimonial: "Was going through my account and noticed I never replied to this, so... I tried a few different things and finally used PB Blaster in both release handles (WARNING!! That is one excellent product, but it has a really strong smell!!) Either rust or something stuck where it should have been, it freed it when I sprayed the release to the rear of the seat. Merely worked release, think forward one first (been a while lol) then rear and it worked fine.. and has never given me problems since."
