Question about Cars & Trucks
My 2007 pontiac grand prix power seat moves up and down but not forward or back. How can I fix it without of a lot of expensive costs?
There are 2 motors under the seat that control how it moves (one for forward/back and one for up/down) Check to make sure the connections are still connected/clean. If they are then your motor burnt out or there is something jamming the rollers on the track the seat rides on.

My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

Check the connector on the cylindrical motor under the seat. You can see it from the back seat well. The connector has a tendency to come loose because of stuff pushed underneath the seat.

try tapping the motor that runs the seat back and forth.sometimes the motors get corroded if they are not used often enough.
