Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Power (driver) seat won't recline; everything else works

My mom's driver's seat all of a sudden won't recline or come back up all the way and it's stuck at a pretty drastic incline. It goes back & forth, and it goes up & down, but not recline all the way. Passenger side works perfectly fine. Maybe something got stuck? How can I check? Please help! Btw, it doesn't just not work at all. It does go back & forth just a few inches. This is why I think maybe something is stuck.

Ford 2008 expedition, power drivers seat won't recline, but everything else works.


Power Recliner
The driver seat has an electro-mechanical backrest adjuster. The backrest adjustment switch is located on the side of the seat cushion side shield and is part of the seat control switch. The recliner motor is mounted to the backrest frame. Power recliners and motors are only serviceable by installing a new backrest frame assembly.

Your owners manual should list the 40amp fuse and the circuit breaker for the seats. The memory control module is powered by both.
If the module is getting power it may have failed.

Back tilt is a manual round knob on drivers seat it just turns


It sounds like the inside of the recliner knob is stripped out. If you go to your local GM dealership and give them your VIN number they can order you a new one. Here is the removal and installation directions.
Driver or Passenger Seat Recliner Handle Replacement Removal Procedure
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool to remove the plastic center cap from the center of the recliner handle.

  2. Pull the recliner handle off the shaft.
Installation Procedure
  1. Install the recliner handle on the recliner shaft.

  2. Push the recliner handle firmly onto the recliner shaft until fully seated.
  3. Install the plastic center cap into the center of the recliner handle.
