Manually move power seats

I have a 1996 Regal and the power seat stopped working. It won't move at all. Is there a cheap way to fix this? If not, is there a way to manually move the seat?

Not really a cheap way to fix it. You have a motor and cables that turn to move the seat. The motor and cables would need to be removed to allow the seat to move, then there would be nothing to keep the seat in place unless you put the motor back.
A manual seat uses a latch and slotted track to move the seat and lock in place.

Check all your fuses in the fuse box. A fuse must have cut off.

If there isn't enough swing room for a ratchet and socket, then you'll have to take out the bolts with a box end wrench.

The drivers seat won't move and the heated seats won't work on both sides. Where is the fuse?


Check underneath the seat for an inline fuse. It is a glass type fuse in a fuse holder that you have to push and twist to get out.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

My seats won't work or my side mirrors an the fuse is good what else can it be


Have you recently cleaned your car and pulled anything out from under the drivers seat? You may have accidentally pulled a wiring harness apart. The actuators that move the seats sometimes freeze, especially if you get right to the end point of motion, giving it a light wack with a wrench can usually free them up, but they shouldn't all stop working at once. It may also be the wiring under the carpet has corroded through. I would start with the harness under the drivers seat and back track the wiring to the fuse box.

The drivers side seat electrical does not work. Seat won't move, car was purchased without a manual. Where are the fuses for this?


The fuses are generally located in a panel under the drivers side of the dash. while you are under there. take a look under the drivers seat and you'll see the wires for the power to the seat. I have known firends who've unplugged their power options accidentally while shoving such as a flashlight under there, Just thought it may be helpful to think about, in the case that your fuses are all good.


Hope this helps

Good Luck and Happy Motoring
