Question about 1999 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

Driver side seat back is loose

My 2000 ford explorer power seat will not lock in an upright position. If I

lean back the seat will not support my back. I want to take the seat

apart but dont know if the seat is spring loaded. If you fixed this

problem or have had this situation I would like to hear from you.

Sincerly, David Loeb

Sounds like your latch is broken. You can replace the latch, it is spring loaded .Once you remove the trim around the latch and pull the seat cover up you can gain access to the bolts. You will need a torx bit ,I believe a t40 not sure. 13mm and 15mm socket.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

2006 Ford Explorer: Back seat won't fold flat to create flat cargo area. It folds down but not flush.


Okay so im just going to start from the seat being upright in a normal riding position.

1. You need to fold the head rests first. Pull the black tab under both headrests. They should spring into a folded position.

2. pull the side seat lever (on the door side of the seat). This will fold the top/back support down to an angle.

3. There is one more lever on the backside of this seat. Its in plain sight on the angled portion of your seat. Lift the big plastic lever.

4. While keeping the handle lifted, grasp the back of the seat and pull it torwards the front of the car. The seat should come unlocked and roll forward and down more towards the floor. If you have a bunch of junk on the floor, it obviously wont work. clear the path and the seat will fold completely flat.

Also, your drivers seat and front passenger seat cannot be all the way back, they need to come forward some in order for the second row seats' head rests to clear and fold flat.

I have a 2003 Ford Excursion Limited: I had the passenger side rear seat in the down position, which requires the bottom part of the seat to be lifted up against that back side of the front passenger...


I just encountered this problem with my 2000 Ford Excursion. After fighting with it for several hours I realized that the section of the seat that is facing up towards the roof of the vehicle was applying pressure to the back of the seat that was facing down and preventing the back of the seat from coming up when I pulled the lever. So, the next time I pushed the seat up that is facing the roof while I pulled the lever and this resovled my problem.

How do I put down back seat in Chrysler LeBaron


position the seat as you know it fits best - putting each bottom leg over the hole in the floor. Lean the seat forward like you wanted to just get to the back of it - like if you leaned a kitchen chair forward. Now be sure the bottom portion of the seat is down in the hole a little - one on each side and then simply lean the seat back to an upright position. If it doesn't slip in and click - try spraying WD 40 or better yet - get a can of white lithium grease and spray that into the holes. LOOK CLOSE and STUDY the bottom of the SEAT and the little holders in the FLOOR - it will come to you they simply sit and lock onto each other. To remove the seat -- at the bottom of the seat is a handle pull - some have one on each side. pull this.

You can do this I can assure you.

Thanks

2ooo ford explorer driver side electric seat will not work can you please help


check owner manual for location of fuses and relay that control seat. it has 2 motors, one for the seat back & one for the sliding back & forth. If one works, suspect motor. If both don't work, suspect fuse or relay.
Also, check wires for chafing under seat, they can get cut if out of position.
report back.
