Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
The rod in the motor for the driver seat that controls the forward and back movement has come out. how do i fix this? do i need to unbolt the seat? is there any steps. I am very nervous as i have bought the vehicle today.
As long as the drive cable isn't broken/jammed you can just put it back together. Might get a little grease on your hands though. Raise the seat all the way up to make it easier to reach underneath. The square end of the cable fits into the square hole of the motor. The outer sheathing of the cable should then snap over the motor housing. I've seen this a lot when people shove stuff under their seats.

Testimonial: "i cant get the cable in to the other end as the cable goes through a plastic rod. One end of the rod connects in tot he motor and the other one connects into the side closest to the driver's side door. Can I get a new cable as I have been trying to install the cable and it is now snapped.!!!"

SOURCE: Front driver seat adjustments.
I just had this problem fixed with a Tech 2 tool in my '03 yukon xl denali. The seat has a control module underneath of it that controls the 2-position memory, the power seat functions, etc. It needed to be reprogrammed - about $200 at the dealership, or free if you 1) have a good relationship with your service manager, or 2) own or know someone with a Tech 2 tool.
At first I thought it was because I had a Canadian model truck (the headlight switch is stuck "on" at all times no matter what position it's in, and the rear air controls are in celcius and not farenheight).
I'm assuming the switch worked before, and you may have encountered some sort of electrical issue (like a dead battery, or you gave someone a jump, you have a bad ground, you just installed an aftermarket stereo, you used a computer tuner, etc.).
Hope this helps!

if thare is a clicking sound heard then the fuse is not blown so this means ether the seat motor or transmission has gone bad and you half to replace the hole seat track, cause i dont think servisable parts are available for this vehicle

under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again

I had this problem not to long ago, it's a very easy fix! I agree with that garr651!
There is a a thin metal wire that runs from the left & right side under the seat. Each end of the wire loops around a small hole on each track bracket and is held in place by two small washers that fit inside a grove.
Check to see if the washers are in the groves and holing each end of the wire tightly. If they're not simply slide them back into place and make sure the wire tight.
The easiest way to do this is to look under the driver seat from the back seat. Also a pair of needle nose pliers may become handy (although not necessary).
