Try unbolting the seat, lift it up, operate the motor and once u find the motor you are looking for apply 12v to one wire and ground to other going to motor... If it moves forward switch the polarity and see if it operates the other way verifying the motor is functioning well. While there check for power from the switch

SOURCE: power seat issue

Get out your voltmeter, unplug the connection to the seat's motor, underneath the seat, and hit the switch. if youve got power going to the motor then youll need to replace the motor. If not, it's probably the switch. Also make sure the wires are not cut or damaged somewhere between the switch and the seat.

SOURCE: '96 Toyota Land Cruiser (LX 450)- Power Seats won't go in reverse

Well what I saw when I pulled my seats out of my 97 LC was that the worm gear on the bottom of the track had lost some tread.  (its plastic)  also, there is a cap that screws in to the end of that gear to hold it in place, so when you reverse the seat, the gear moves if that cap falls out of place ----small plastic cap fell out in mine.  The whole rail system is like $300 at Toyota but i found a website that sells the cap and the gears for $20.  I will try to post it tomorrow-for the time being, you can take the seat out -be sure to unplug the electronics, and use a wrench to manually move the seat back and then put it back into place

I found this post area while looking for a way to fix my stuck 2001 Camry LE drivers seat. Sure enough, while engaging the seat motor (it could be heard making an initial clikc), I hit the front rails a coupel time prettysolidly with a rubber mallet. That fixed it!

Thanks to all for providing a quick fand easy way to get the seat moving again!

Power seat not working cadillac


Check that the seat belt mount (often solid plastic or metal that holds the button side of the belt in place next to the center console) is not pinching and preventing the seat from moving forward and back. This happens on many Fords, so it might happen on some GM's too.
If you can hold the buckle mount out of the way while someone else moves the seat backward (or forward), it usually starts working OK again until someone moves the seat to the max forward or max backward position and it gets stuck again

The driver seat will not go forward


if going backward is working,and foward is not,, easy
,1st determine what is defective-so u know what to replace/repair-2 things only ,[1-switch or 2- motor under d seat]
by presing the backward swicth,, you can hear the sound of the motor running and u can see the seat is going backward...
1-now by pressing the foward switch, and you hear the motor running but not that strong like the rear ..and the seat move an inche /a little and stop,,.then u have a defect weak motor,
2- now by pressing the foward swicth and u dont hear any motor running then the switch is most likely defective
defective switch -repair- spray contact cleaner,remove cover switch,penetrate inside
defective motor-repair-remove motor replace inside carbon,,.chiepest way not to spend to much money..
i suggest even once a month,lubricate all power seat/even not powerseat/,door hinges/.trunk door/.power antenna./ .by spraying lubricating oil,. for maintanace,..you can save a lot..

Drivers seat will no longer move forwards and backwards. The electric seat allows for all the other adjustments. Not sure if issue is within the switch or the seat motors. Any suggestions on a remedy or...


This could just be a simple switch issue

Try finding a replacement switch and testing it out i am sure it won't cost much and may save you repairing/replacing seat motors

Seat does not move backward


Try having someone tap on the drive motor and cable while you sit in the seat and keep a backward pressure on the seat. If this is successful than you've got to lubricate the cable housing with a spray oil.

Front seat not moving front to back for Toyota Avalon 1997


If it is power seat electric motor is faulty. For mechanical you need to spray the rails under the seat. There is the grease at any autostore or Walmart for unscrewing rusty bolts. It will be helpfull.After you do thet push seat forward and back afterwards.
