The gear assembly attached to the motor is stripped/broken. The least expensive solution is to go the junk yard and buy a motorized seat for your model. If you go the dealer for the motor assembly it is sold as a complete assembly with the bottom seat frame. Cost is over $300 . Once you've replaced/repaired the seat, I'd recommend that you do not raise or lower the seat while sitting on it. I had to replace mine twice.

this more likely is a worn out gear that spins and moves the seat. you should check the motor to see if it actually spins if it does repair the gear.

I hv a 99 olds alero and the sunroof is stuck partially open I hit the open and close button it was barely moving now doesn't move at all.. But now when I push the open/close button I can hear the motor...


Sounds like the motor is worn out try applying some finger pressure on the sun roof and actuate the closer button and it should close it until you can pull your roof panneling back to expose the motor to be change

Power seat


Look under the seat to see if one of the cables came off. If they are all connected, my guess would be that one of the cable are broke. If you have enough clearance, you may be able to remove the cables (they unscrew) to find the broken one, if not you will have to remove the seat from the car. I hope this helps and good luck.

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.

Power seat switch


It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.

4x4 and low will not engage


What i've been told or understand, is if your box behind the seat, which i believe is a 4x4 module of some sort, clicks then your actuator motor under the vehicle is stuck, broken or simply not engaging. Have someone pushing the button slowly while someone crawls under the car to tap the back end of the motor.

If this helps you are having an issue with the motor, its stuck and usually needs to be replaced.(the motor at a parts store is called a transfer case motor)(they have them at schucks).

If that doesn't help then you may be having the same problem i am.
I'm dealing with a similar problem the only difference is that my unit behind the driver seat doesn't click at all. The little led doesn't light up either. I don't think i'm getting power to that module. But finding a wiring schematic for the system is proving difficult.
