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.

SOURCE: 1998 MERCURY MYSTIQUE MANUAL TRANSMISSION WILL NOT GO INTO TO ANY GEAR?

That happened once in a Datsun pick up I had. A friend took the boot off of the gearshift and found something had come loose and pushed it back into place.

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.

My 2000 Sable won't move though gear selector appears to be in tack. Was making a left turn heard a loud pop on the right front side of the car then what appeared to be a rubbing or scraping noise...


the problem has to be in the linkage inside the transmission which means that you have to take into a mechanic to have them fix this because if you do not know how to take the transmission apart yourself is the reason why to take it to the nearest mechanic. Sorry

Power seat motor runs and seat moves back and forth but will not move up and down


The most common problem is that the little plastic teeth in the motor have broken off. Some people replace the plastic gear with brass ones, others mold new teeth on. I made a video of putting different motors in. Here is the link to my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQLVvUf-9rs

93 Mercury Tracer will not shift out of park.


This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.

The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

1998 BMW 328i Drivers Seat Problem


gears are probably not engaged. take the seat out, see if the motor drive gear is still within the teeth of the seat rail. if not, force it in. Easy to take out, 4 bolts and the seat comes up and out.
