    the motor that moves the seat forward and back is gone. i had the same problem. just replace it. it's the small motor in front of the seat. u have to take the motor out if u want to manually move it forward and back.

Most likely this is the control switch causing this problem.

I have a 1995 jeep grand cherokee and the power seats will go up/down and tilt forward/backward but the seat is all the way and will not move forward. What can i do?


Hi Christy,

The first thing I would do is to look under the seat with a flashlight and see if there are any dammaged wires. This is the most common cause of seat failures. Things get stuffed under the seats, then the wiring gets dammaged when the seats are moved back and forth.

Other than that, all I know to tell you is that you must diagnose the circit that runs the motor that moves the seat forward and back. It could be the switch, the wiring, or the motor itself.

On a '97 jeep grand cherokee limited, do the back seats lay forward? If so, how do you put them down? Thank you.


On each side of the back seat (the part you sit on), there is a loop. Pull this up, and the seat cushion will swivel up towards the front seat back. Visible at the lower corner of the seat back, is a lever that tou can pull up ( the earlier versions needed to be pushed down or back). The seat back will then fold /down/forward. The headrest must be removed so that the seat back can fold flat. The headreat can be removed by turnibg the small knob at the base of one of the head rest shafts. There is a small arrow indicating the direction of rotation to accomplish this.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. My drivers side front power seat does Not stay adjusted. Every time I turn the ignition on the seat moves backward and the back lays down.


The limited edition brings memory setting for mirrors and seats, it recognizes which key are you putting in the ignition and puts the saved setting accordingly to that driver's key. That is the reason your seat keeps moving. You need to reprogram the seat position for that key. Good luck

I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch. Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat. Good luck, Techjoel

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.
