Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

The drivers power seat in my 2000 Chevy Silverado is sliding

The seat works fine but it slides forward about 1/2 inch when stopping and then back when taking-off. The seat mounting bolts are tight, so what could be the problem? I'm guessing there are some bushing that need to be replaced?

    Have a 2000 silverado with power seats. Both seats move foward and backwards as the vehicle is in motion.

    Power passenger seat moves forward and back about half an inch upon accelaeration and deceleration. Annoying!

    Have a oil leak from underneath my 2000 Z71. Can follow the oil drip coming from the passenger side where the starter is at. There's no oil leaking on top of the of the valve covers. Is it the oil pan gasket that's worn out?

The problem is probably due to some shims in the seat rails that have "dissolved". I have posted a video on YouTube that shows what I needed to do to repair my seat. http://youtu.be/sOjivYnXMAQ

There is a ratchet system on the slide rail below the seat, sometimes the teeth on the ratchet wear out, especially when adjusted often. The hook holder that actually clamps onto those teeth, may be broken off or worn out aswell, and either of these will need replacement. Some models also come with air-suspension and a locking device, the spring on this device may be missing or worn, this will also mean a new one is neccesary for repair.

BUT... If you don't want to fork out, and are going to leave the seat in one position for a long time, may I suggest simply welding the rail to the seat, this is a permanent thing and would require you to throw away the entire sliding system, if you ever need to adjust the seat. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

SOURCE: Broken power seat - cannot slide backward. Can I slide it manually?

Ck for debri or other objwcts in way of tracks Does it try to move? If so, there is an obstruction, If not trying or no sound when switch is moved, could very well be a fuse or the forward limit switch is being affected by excess forward travel. Move the switch yo back and without kinda help it. if it's trying.

SOURCE: stuck front passenger seat - wont slide back or forwards due to small screw lodged in floor runner

Be there done that, but with a penny. All you can do is either get real aggressive with a hammer and long metal object as a punch or pull the seat. The seat should have 4 bolts. One at each end of each track. Ising a 1/4 in drive rachet and either a 1/2 or 9/16 socket should work. 1/4 in drive is low profile.. good luck

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

Most common problem is corrosion inside electrical connector to the motor. Either replace or clean out connector. Disconnect battery before doing any cleaning of connrctors. If connectors are a-ok then use voltmeter and see if B+ is making it to seat motor.
If it is then motor is defective . if its not then remove position switch from connectors , use a jumper wire
and jump connectors and see if switch operates motor. If it operates motor then the switch is defective

Drivers seat 2000 outback


So here is a diagram of the seat circuitry for your car. Since every other function works except the forward/backward slide function, that leaves basically the forward/backward slide motor, the seat switch, and/or the wiring. If you can verify that the wiring under the seat is in good condition without obstructions, chaffed wires, and/or wires pulled too tight, then it's safe to say it's down to just the motor and/or the switch. Sometimes if the passengers front seat has the same switch, you can plug it in to the drivers' side connector and see what works and what doesn't. If the seat works fine with the other switch, then that's all it needs, if not then it will need a motor. If the other seat doesn't have a switch then you can find them at wrecking yards, or just supply power and ground to the motor in question to see if it works. If it does, then you know you kneed a switch and if not then a motor.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

2000 Chev. silverado. Driver seat has approximately 3/8 to 1/2 in free play in the seat mechanism. Seat slides forward and back with acceleration or slowing.


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Your seat has a locking mechanism that releases when you pull the lever to go up or move back. I would say that it is stuck or it is broken. They are hard to get to in some vehicles. You may have to remove the seat. I would say this is your issue.

Heated, power seats not working


Check wiring under the seat. Frequent habit of pushing things under the seat such as flashlights and tools etc and moving the seat forward and back sometimes pulls wires or breaks them.

Go under the seat and check both slide tracks for anything jamming it up...I've removed gloves, socks, candy boxes etc from tracks. Also if its not a power seat, check that when you move the release lever it is connected by a stiff wire to the opposite side. That wire releases the right side track. If broken or stretched, it wont.
