Altima car seat switch

The driver side power seat was working fine this morning. Now, when I try to move the seat back, the left side goes back and the right side does not move. How can I solve this problem?

    to my experience with this car seats, I found that the tracks on this seats have a plastic guide betwen the track to make the operation a little more quiet when the seat is in movement, I found several of them to have that plastic track deformed and out of place not allowing the seat to travel back or foward, the only way to fix this is to replace the track or the seat, and when this hapins it makes this job twoice is hard to remove the seal is you can't get to the bolts under the seat, you can get a flash light and look at the track in betwenn the concel and the seat, if you see a white peace of plastic with theet slidly over the gear, that is your problem. sorry anf good luck.

SOURCE: Drivers side power seat is stuck.

THERE IS NO WAY TO OVERIDE WITH TAKING THE WHOLE THING APART, HOW DO U KNOW IT IS THE SWITCH? THERE ARE MULTIPLE MOTORS IN THE SEAT TRANSMISSION ONE OF THESE COULD BE DEFECTIVE, THE SWITCH IS EASY TO TEST GET A TEST LIGHT AND TEST IT.

SOURCE: 2006 nissan altima power seat won't go back, does go forward

I was JUST working on a similar problem at work. It was a 2006 Altima SE with improper seat operation. It would ONLy go up/down on the bottom section of the seat. The recline and slide didnt work at all. It was looked at by different dealer and they couldn't fix it, so it end it up at my dealer ship. Since some of the features of the power seat are working, that means that you have power going to the switch. The switch provides ground for the whole circuit. The wires coming from the switch got chaffed and switch burned up. I installed new seat switch ($150 or so for the switch) and the whole seat bursted to life. I am pretty sure that you seat switch in NG.

SOURCE: after it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima

When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

2008 Kia Amanti power seat is not working on the drivers side, passenger side works


You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

My power locks power windows and power drivers seat all quit working at the same time on my 2006 nissan altima. Checks all the fuses? Any help please we have rain moving in. If it could be a relay, which...


I have seen this common problem on several Altimas. You have a wire that has been pinched in your power seat that is frayed and grounding out on the seat frame causing the circuit breaker in the BCM to trip. U will need to remove the drivers seat from the car, Use a screwdriver to pop off the seat adjustment knobs, the pop off the plastic cover from the seat switch. There are two phillips head screws holding the switch to the seat. It is necessary to cut the seat material a small amount to access the screws and remove the switch. U will need to unplug the switch from the bottom side of the seat and unclip the wiring harness from the seat frame in order to remove the switch/wiring harness assembly. Once removed you will see the chafed wire. Simply cut the insulator that covers all the wires back far enough to repair the wire. I normally take a small piece of vacuum hose, split it down the middle and put over the chafed wire. Tape everything up with some electrical tape. When putting everything back together, re-route the wiring harness to a different location so it doesn't get pinched again. Re-install the seat and enjoy having all of your power options working again. If you need any more info on this or some helpful pics, let me know. Have a good day!

Heated, power seats not working


Check wiring under the seat. Frequent habit of pushing things under the seat such as flashlights and tools etc and moving the seat forward and back sometimes pulls wires or breaks them.

Drivers seat problems


if the seat goes in one direction and no the other it will definately be the switch and not the wires. two wires feed power if one of the wires were bad the seat would not move at all so you will need to change the switch.

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.

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.
