Look under the seat for anything that may be jamming the seat track.

SOURCE: 1985 buick riviera power seat wont move back

Hi, I have a1983 Riviera that just had the same problem. Try taking the switch out of the driver door armrest and switching it with the passenger side switch. If the seat then works, it isn't the motor, it is the switch. You can then use that switch to position your seat until you can get your driver seat switch repaired or replaced. The switches are actually quite easy to take out. Pull the entire switch assembly out of the armrest. The switch is held in by two small screws. Then you have to unscrew a blue cap that is holding the wiring harness onto the switch. Pry up on the wiring harness until it comes off of the switch. The passenger side switch comes out the same way and will easily press onto the driver side harness, but everything will work backwards. I hope this helps. I actually pulled my bad switch apart and tried to clean it, and when I put it back together again it worked! I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: 2003 rondezvous stuck in reverse.

the linkage might have popped off the tranny must of those are on a ball socket, if you open the hood and find the cable that goes to the transmission. and you will most likly find that it popped off. if you have someone in the car when you are ready to pop it back on have them move the shifter until in the right spot and then push it back on. if it keeps poping off you will have to replace the cable.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward


There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.
