SOURCE: Drivers side seat will not

I had the same problem. It turned out that the previous owner(s) had let a lot of sticky trash accumulate under the seat. After the seat was removed and everything (seat tracks and floor) was given a good cleaning, the seat goes up and down just fine.

SOURCE: 1998 BMW 328i Drivers Seat Problem

gears are probably not engaged. take the seat out, see if the motor drive gear is still within the teeth of the seat rail. if not, force it in. Easy to take out, 4 bolts and the seat comes up and out.

SOURCE: 1998 528i Driver seat adjustment & steering

I had that problem. I have a 1997 528i, the plug on the side of the drivers seat under the plastic panel came unplugged. I had to just simply plug it back in, steering wheel adjusted and seat moved too. Maybe this is your problem too.

SOURCE: driver power seat adjustment and steering tilt not

It would appear that the relay is misfunctioning. Try swapping one from nearby and when your car won't start but your seats operate then you'll know what to do. THanks, Dana

I have the same problem. Seat and steering column just stopped working. Passenger side normal. No fuse for these components. With so many postings witht he same problem there has to be a defective or worn out source. Please post if you find a solution!

Hi, 1997 Jaguar xk8 convertible. Drivers seat electrics not functioning where is the relevant fuse?


Unfortunately for many of the Jaguar models there is only one fuse for all the functions of each seat. The fuse locations can be found in the electrical section of the owners manual or Roadside emergency service section of the Vehicle Care Manual. In a 2000 XK8 the fuse for the drivers seat is fuse #1 (20A) located in the drivers side fascia fusebox (at left end of instrument panel). Not sure if it was changed from 1997 but doubt it.

Had problem of seat fuse blowing on XJ8 every time the headrest adjustment was attempted (shorted motor). Very tiring to deal with but be aware if fuse continues to blow you might have a motor or wiring problem. Good luck.

How do you move a electric seat manually?


The best fix, is to fix it properly. If faulty seat motor, replace it. If faulty wiring circuit or fuse, fix it. Sometimes if seat motor is ok, with use of wiring diagram for proper wiring colors, you can use jumper wires, voltage and ground, to move seat to wanted position.


Remove the seat from vehicle, see what is keeping seat from moving in direction that you want. If seat motor drive gear is keeping seat from moving, remove, then see if you can position seat where you want it, then, put everything back together.

Pt cruiser seat adjuster problems - my drivers seat power seat adjuster doesn't work (as of yesterday ) and it is stuck in the fully forward position - it there anything i can do? it would only move up...


You might have a problem with the wiring under the seat. The best thing to do is to reach under the seat and move some of the wires away from the track that the seat moves along. Most likely there is a short to ground because the wires are rubbing against the seat track as it is moved back and forth. You need to grab a flashlight and look under the seat for wires touching the seat tracks. When you find them, you can most likely use some electrical tape to wrap the exposed wires and keep those wires from touching each other and that area from touching the seat track. Make sure you route the wires away from the seat track tight enough to the seat's underside, but loose enough to allow the wires to move with the seat as it travels the full length of its track. The fuse for the seat has probably blown so you would need to replace the power seat fuse AFTER you wrap and reroute the wires to prevent blowing the new fuse.

Hope this helps!

Drivers seat wont go forward. cant reach pedals.


Look under if the seat carriage mechanism has jammed at the adjustment slot.
Use a good light to investigate , use some WD40 cleaning spray to the lock position and try to wriggle the lever. If must come loose once the sprray gets in.
Also you can try to move the seat slowly till it moves well on the rail. Use a hammer to tap at the base if there is rust on the rail that has caught on the seat frame.
Hope this helps

Passenger windows/ power seats fuse keeps blowing


Check the seat wiring harness below the seat and under the carpet. Water and moister will cause it to rust and break the wires or short them out. The windows and power seat require the use of a circuit breaker, this is recommended.
