Question about 1987 GMC VanDura
Hello, I just purchased a 1987 GMC Vandura 2500 conversion van. My issue is that the owners manual was lost and I can't figure out how to fold down the electric rear bench seat. There doesn't seem to be a switch, but there are several places in the wall of the van that seem like something could be plugged in. Any ideas?
If it's anything like my 1994 Vandura, you have a small panel of rocker
switchers above the rearview mirror for turning your interior lights and
other gadgets(tv, vcr, etc) off and on.
The leftmost switch on mine moves the electric bench seat up and down, *and* forward and back. The trick is that you have to hold it down to make it move.
With mine, even though there are four actions:
- slide seat forward
- slide seat backward
- fold seat down
- fold seat up
there is only one rocker switch.
So what you do is hold "up" on the switch and see what it does. If it slides the seat in either direction, up for your van is for both sliding forward *and* back. To do the opposite direction, just wait a second then press the same button the same way a second time.
If up makes it fold, it's the same principle. Hold the rocker switch depressed in the up position to make it fold up. Wait a moment and repeat to make it go down.
It wasn't intuitive for me either but once you know and play with it a bit it makes sense. Probably better than having four switches up there anyway :)
