SOURCE: 1998 Cougar power seat works in all directions except forward

THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF THIS IS THE SEAT SWITCH (WIGGLE THE SWITCH WHILE YOU TRY TO MOVE THE EAT), IF THAT DOESN'T FIX IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE POWER SEAT TRANSMISSION, A VERY EXPENSIVE PART, SO TRY THE SWITCH 1ST.

SOURCE: I have a 1993 Mercury

There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

SOURCE: how do i remove the

You just have to get the bolts out. The rear bolts can be somewhat difficult when the seat is back and will not move forward. In this case, remove the front bolts first. Then you will probably have to use a wrench to get to the rear bolts. There is usually not enough room to get a ratchet and socket in there.

NOTE: GEARWRENCH makes ratcheting wrenches that are perfect for jobs like this one. They give you the convenience of a ratchet, while providing you with the clearance of a wrench. For more information on this go to gearwrench.com.

Anyway, to get enough clearance for the bolt to come all the way out, (or the nut to come all the way off if your Cougar uses nuts in the rear) you may have to work both rear fasteners at the same time and tilt the seat forward as you go (Which is why we took the front bolts out first). This is especially true if you are using a box-style wrench. Be sure to loosen each bolt incrementally so the seat CAN be tilted to avoid getting your wrench trapped.

Once all the bolts are out, you can tip the seat backward to access the wiring connectors under the seat to disconnect them.

That happen to me, and A guy helped me. The problem maybe down by the brake pedal, but above the brakes you may have pulled the wires a loose with your feet, or something and the wires need to be put back together maybe with black electrical tape. Definitley have to go down to the floor, and look under where the brake pedal is.

The electric drivers seat adjuster on my 1997 Lincoln Continental will not adjust up - just makes a rasping sound and won't move the seat up, only down. Any suggestions?


Sounds like your motor/gear might be worn. Does it go down while you are sitting on it or also when no weight is present ?

Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?


These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

2007 mazda 6 front and rear driver and rear passenger windows not working.


The windows need to be re-learned.
- Park the car on level floor. Shift the gear lever to P or N. Pull up the hand brake. Start the engine.
- Sit on driver's seat. Lower the driver side window. Keep the button pressed for three to four Seconds after the window glass sits completely.
- Move up the window glass and do the same as above.
- Do the same with passenger side window glass while sitting on the passenger seat.
- Repeat the same procedure for rear windows one by one from their own buttons.
- Sit on a drivers seat and operate all the windows one by one.
Note:
If the problem persists, pull up the body diagnostic error codes with Diagnostic computer or re-learn the windows with the same machine.

2002 buick park avenue power drivers seat won't go up or down


The most common problem is the gear breaking under the seat. There is one motor to make the front go up and down and one motor to make the back go up and down. The front up/down motor is the easier one to replace. I have a video of one way to fix the up/down motors. I demo the back motor.

the problem can be that the gear wheel can be strip on one spot ,and if the gear is plastic,and because of the back being more heavy it puts more strain on the gear and some times one can rush and push the back by hand ,all this can cause the gear to
strip.
