Check your fuse, then check to see if anything is blocking the track. You might have to re-set the memory.

Power seat


Most Fordicon1.png products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works besticon1.png to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

CHECK YOUR WIRES UNDER THE SEAT WHERE YOU WERE CLEANING, PROBABLY SCRAPED OR CUT A WIRE OR CONNECTION. THAT WOULD SEEM LIKE A GOOD PLACE TO START.

My car got a bit of water in it from a little flood in my neighborhood. There was no standing water but that carpet was thouroughly wet and had to be dried out. A day or two after the little flood my...


floods are a bad deal for houses and yards but there hell on cars most offten the car that is flooded is totaled out cause the cost to fix it is more then what the car is worth. i would have to say check the fuses for your seats and then check the motor on the seat to see if its still soaked sometimes they dry out and work fine and sometimes they dont ever work again i would start with the fuses then dig a lil deeper and see if there is power going to the seat if there is, is the power going to the motor if not fix what is stoping the power.

Drivers seat does not move in the backward mode.all the other switch functions work properly.the seat is all the way forward and I cannot get in the drivers seat. I appreciate your help, thank you.


ssqsantiago, What you have to do is look under the seat and look for the electrical connections. You may find that one of the connections has a broken wire. If not, then disconnect each connection one at a time and look for any rusted pin or wires. If there are none of the above then what you can do is to figure out which motor moves the seat forward and backward and apply direct power to the motor. You will need a 12 volt battery for this and wires long enough to reach the motors connection. If the motor does not react to the power source then reverse the wires. If the motor still does not react at this time then the motor will have to be replaced. What you can do in the meantime is remove the motor and try to move the seat manually. Good luck with this.

I need to change my battery in 2002 530i. Last time, had small electrical issues. Tech charged $250 and said system needed a "reboot" Is this true or a scam?


You are going on your third battery in 9 years? You are a little hard on batteries.
There is no need to reboot anything. If you take a long time to change the battery, you may loose seat memory, radio memory, transmission adaptation, but none of that is a big deal. You can avoid loosing anything by powering the system while changing the battery. Take another car and attach jumper cables to the jumper cable attachment point and a good ground under the hood and the system will stay continuously powered up while you swap the battery. Keep the key turned off.
I replaced the battery in my wife's '04 330 the other day. I did it in the NAPA store parking lot and did not keep the system powered up. I just pulled the battery. I have not checked the seat memory, but everything else is fine. The battery was disconnected less than a minute.

2005 Pacifica power seats, windows, mirrors, ect just stopped


Disconnect the battery for a minute or two. This clears the computer, and for some reason fixes the problem. I have had the same problem on and off for the last two years I have owned the car. I took it to the dealership at first, then figured that it might be something simpler. I just had the problem again today after accidentally setting off the alarm, and the above fix worked. Lost my radio presets though.
