SOURCE: drivers power seat will not move forward or back.

I just finished 'repairing' in my '00 Outback wagon, which moved forward inconsistently, and never completely lifted the front edge of the seat up.  We like to move it back when we get out. Up to now, we had learned we could move it forward by hitting it like a karate chop (not good) !  
   I removed the 4 bolts mounting the seat to the floor, tilted it back, popped the toggle switch handle off & removed the 2 screws holding the side cover.  (I discovered the switch WORKED now!)
   I then disconnected the switch harness & bent the plastic cover back far enough to unscrew the switch from the inside. I inspected & spray-cleaned the switch, & in re-installing discovered the switch front plastic lobe (or knob) that snaps into the handle was loosening & finally broke off!  It works just using the rear lobe without the handle on.  
   I left it hanging beside the seat for now until I order another switch.  But, also, the rear inner screw that mounts the switch stripped during attempted re-installation, which I will have to address.  
Bottom line:  it was a mechanical failure, not an electrical one!  I could re-install without the handle & it would work.  Ugly.  Other bottom line: this was my teacher-wife's commuter car, I am inheriting it this summer when our new 2010 Prius arrives! It has 190,000 miles on it !

SOURCE: The driver heated seats and cigarette lighter

Check the fuse box and replace the fuse if it is bad. If this makes them work and the fuse blows again you will have to trace the wiring and or heating units to single out the problem.

Hi - I have a much loved 2004 SAAB 93 Aero sedan.


This has been happenning on my 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0 T also for about 2-3 months also. I have had no clues until today I learnt by accident that the lumbar support on my car's driver seat does not work anymore. Which means that there are broken strings/wires inside the seat and that move on braking and make clicking sound. I haven't checked my seat's lumbar support but will do soon.

Try your lumbar support adjustment and see if it is moving freely, that means it not adjusting the lumbar support. If that's the case, that may be the cause of the clicking/slight-movement of the seat.

The Lumbar support adjustment fails


I wonder if you dont have a bad switch. I had a similar problem on my car except that it was the heated seats that would not engage... the power seat buttons all worked just fine. I changed the switch and it fixed the problem...

Note: this was on a BMW not a Murano
