    Hi,

    It seems like I have the same problem. I have had it for a while, but
    it didnt bother me until I accidentally put my sit down. So, now I need
    to fix it because I cannot drive with my seat being like that.

    Have you been able to fix it? I took my car to the local auto repair
    shop, but they couldnt fix it :( I made some research and it looks like
    many owners of Nissan Altima 2006 had the same issue. Someone here
    suggested that it is a defect in the motor. I checked to see if there
    was a recall for that but it wasnt. I think since so many people have this problem, this is a manufacture defect. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Olga

SOURCE: electric seats will only go one way

You need to check for power at the motor when you try to activate the switch. If there's power then you have a drive cable issue. If this is a manual seat then the problem is the actuator assembly itself,the cable,mechanism,etc. Remove the seat & take a good look at it. You'll see a problem,write back.

SOURCE: The recline on my power seat stopped working

Sounds like a bad switch or motor. If it will incline, I am assuming it is the switch itself. Replace the switch, and it should work again.

On a 2006 yeah that sounds like a defect in the motor I would look to see if there were a recall on it.

SOURCE: The recline on my power seat stopped working

I just bought a 2005 Nissan Altima that had the same problem. The motor was fine. I opened the switch and found that a trace on the small circuit board was cut/missing. I soldered it on the spot and it solved the problem. You can access the switch by carefully prying off the switch buttons, then the plate. There are two screws that must be removed so that you can pull the switch assembly out of the seat.

Front seat locked in recline,


I just bought a 2005 Nissan Altima that had the same problem. You really can't bring the seat back up without removing the motor and manually turning the metal rod. The motor in my case was fine. I opened the switch and found that a trace on the small circuit board was cut/missing. I soldered it on the spot and it solved the problem. You can access the switch by carefully prying off the switch buttons, then the plate. There are two screws that must be removed so that you can pull the switch assembly out of the seat.

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.

Passenger seat back will not move either direction


Motor on the seat may have gone out, contacts in switch got dirty or worn, or assembly reached limit and stuck. Try sitting in it pushing back hard and adjust. If not youll need to replace switch,b take seat apart to fix or replace.
