My 01 passat glx has an issue with the drivers side seat everything works except the forward and backward power movement. I hear it click when I push the switch but it won't move any ideas?

The motor located under the seat could be seized. Make sure you have voltage at the motor. Also check that nothing is jammed or restricting movement.

2007 mitsubishi eclipse driver seat stuck rearward, wont release

  • Search for one of the most common troubles in power seats: inspect the seat rails and the area under the seat with a flashlight and make sure there are no objects obstructing or preventing seat movement.

  • Inspect the fuse or circuit breaker if both front power seats fail to op

  • Turn on the ignition switch, but do not start the engine. Operate the power seat switch and listen for the motor running under the failed seat. If you do not hear any sound coming from the motor, lift the switch from the door panel or the side of the seat.
  • Check for incoming voltage at the switch using a test light. If there is no voltage, check the wiring between the switch and the fuse panel for an open or short.
  • Unplug the switch and test it for continuity using a multimeter. If there is no continuity, replace the switch.
  • Test the relay if your circuit has one between the switch and the failed motor. Operate the switch and make sure the relay is receiving voltage from the switch; also, test for outgoing voltage from the relay to the motor using a test light. Make sure the relay is properly grounded. Remove or move the seat to the side if possible for this test. If one of the voltages is not present, check that part of the wire for an open or short. If there is no outgoing voltage, test the relay for proper operation and replace it if necessary.
  • Check for incoming voltage at the failed motor or motors using a test light. If there is no incoming voltage, test the wire or wires for continuity between the motor and switch or relay, looking for an open or a short.
  • Unplug the failed motor and test it outside, connecting the motor to the battery using two jumper wires. If the motor still does not operate, replace it.
  • Inspect the drive assembly-transmission, gears and tracks-and make sure the mechanism is in good condition. Make repairs as necessary.

    Sunroof will not work

    Power is supplied to the Power windows and sunroof through the power window circuit breaker. That circuit breaker is supplied power through the RAP (retained accessory power) Relay, the RAP relay also supplies power to the radio. The RAP relay is also fuse protected by the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block. The RAP relay is energized by the BCM body control module.

    The RAP relay is responsible for the radio and windows working after the igntion is turned off.

    The first place to check would be the RAP fuse in the under hood fuse block and then the RAP relay in the Body fuse block.

    A list of the BODY relay block located on the left side of the dash to the right of the interior fuse block is below:

    (1) Park Lamp Relay (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker (6) Inadvertent Power Relay (7) Door Lock Relay (8) Headlamp Ground Relay (9) Driver Door Unlock Relay (10) Door Unlock Relay(1) Park Lamp Relay
    (2) Courtesy Lamp Relay
    (3) Retained Accessory Power (RAP) Relay
    (4) Power Seats Circuit Breaker
    (5) Power Windows Circuit Breaker

    (7) Door Lock Relay
    (8) Headlamp Ground Relay

    Driver's seat stuck. Lumbard support works,

    HI. There are only two causes for this particular issue. The most common will be a failed switch assembly. This should be located on the side of the drivers seat. This switch is responsible for transferring the movement commands to the actual motor/gear assembly, which is located on the rail structure under the seat in question. If your lumbar section is responding to commands, but the others fail, this will lead to a failed switch circuit. the entire switch board will need to be replaced, in this case.

    Now, if you command the set to move forward, and all you hear is the motor running , but no movement, this will lead to a failed gear assembly. This will be the second cause of no forward/backwards movement. In this case, the entire motor/gear assembly will need to be replaced, due to the fact that the gears are not sold separately. The are shipped as a kit with the motor.

    It is required that you order this type of replacement part directly from the dealership.

    • NOTE_ I have seen in most cases that the there was jam, due to pieces of the gear assembly breaking off, and jamming up the mechanism. in order to properly inspect for damage of this nature, it will be necessary to remove the seat.

    1999 Cadillac Deville Driver side power seat not working

    No fuse.These seats are protected with relays and a seat module.The module is under the drivers seat.There are 3 connectors and it would be hard to check all these wires for power to the motors.First look under the seat and make sure none of the connectors came apart under the seat by something that might have been left or rolled under it.The 2 main ones you can check are the connector 2 terminal C and connector 3 terminal A.C is a black wire which is ground and A is a red wire which is the feed power wire.Connector 2 is green and 3 is black.If the ground and power wires are good then you could have a bad drivers seat module.What I would do is go to the salvage yard and find a used module to try.Good luck.

    Power driver's seat only travels forward and backward on one side of seat. Other side works fine. Seat does travel up and down properly.

    Power seat movement is controlled by numerous small motors underneath the seat.

    Front and back movement is often actuated through a motor on one side that connect to a rod (with some type of gear on the end of it) that runs to the other side. This rod can get out of position, or possibly something can go wrong in the gear.

    You'll likely have to remove the seat to diagnose the problem.

    My power driver's seat 1999 lincoln continental keeps returning to the full back position even when i drive.I changed the entire seat frame with new motors and gears, $500.00 no fix. I have to pull the #39...

    does this have automatic seat positioning when you open the door or hit the unlock button on your key fob?

    here's how it works:

    Seats — Programmable
    The memory seat system allows automatic positioning of the driver seat to two programmable positions using the message center, the key fob or the keypad on the door.
    Seats — Driver Seat Module
    The Driver Seat Module (DSM) is located under the driver's seat and is attached to the seat frame. The DSM will:
    • control the movements of the driver's seat and power exterior rearview mirrors
    • store and recall seat and mirror positions of two personalized settings
    • receive all power seat and mirror control inputs from the Driver's Door Module (DDM) through the J1850 communication network
    • move the exterior rearview mirrors downward when the transmission is shifted into reverse, if enabled.
    Seats — Driver Door Module
    The driver's seat regulator control switch is connected to the Driver Door Module (DDM). The DDM receives the driver's seat regulator control switch input and communicates the direction of movement over the J1850 communication network.
    Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
    • Front seat tracks obstructed.
    • Seat at limit(s) of travel.
    • Open fuse junction panel Fuses 39 (10A), 41 (20A), and 28 (10A).
    • Open power distribution box Fuse 13 (30A).
    • Loose, corroded or damaged connectors.
    • Damaged switches.
    • Damaged motors

    Also, the dealer can run a scan on your seat modules with his tester and tell you what the codes are. They should only charge an hour to do this. Then you can decide what to do. Call your dealer and ask how much to run the scan test.

    Power seat, driver side

    If only one seat is not working the fuse/relay is ok or both would not work, most likely cause based on experience is the control switch, then the power seat motor.
