Olds Aurora seat wont adjust

My '97 Oldsmobile Aurora has a strange problem - the seat adjusting buttons doesn't work completely. It allows me to tilt the seat back but not lower it. It adjusts in about 6 direction and about 4 of them work. The problem is my petite mother used it last and now I can fully lower the seat. Is it a fuse or just stuck? What should I do?

"Olds Aurora seat wont adjust" ..... I have same issue with a 1998 and I found out when I opened the driver side door and wiggle the black acordian-like harness that covers the wires between the door and the dash the seats will move. There is no doubt a break or short in the wiring running through this harness.

Check on the side of the seat for a manual lever. For some reason the car companies still include a manual adjustment in addition to the electric one. If any direction works with the motor then the fuse is good.

I agree with rbc, it's probably loose wires, though I was going to suggest looking under the seat, I don't know where the wires are on this car, but usually they are under the seat and rarely are they neatly placed, easy to bump if anything gets shoved under there. fiddle around with em a little.

2001 Olds Aurora Driver's Seat Problem.


The seat is programmable to each keyless remote that comes with the car. If the car has the same features as mine, when sitting in the drivers seat and you look on the drivers side door there are two buttons labeled with a 1 and a 2 and if you adjust the seat to how you want it with the car on and then press either one of those buttons and hold it down until it beeps it will then set the seat to one of the two keyless remotes which each have a 1 or 2 engraved into the plastic back of the remote. Then every time you unlock the door the seat automatically readjusts to wherever it was set when one of those buttons was pushed to save the setting.

98 Aurora's heated seat not working


Check your fuses first. Then check to see if you have power to the box under seat. It should be about 3x3 and black I think. If you have power to the box change the box. To check use a test light. make sure the key is on and the button is pushed then probe the wires going to the box. Hope this helps you.

Electric front seat stuck in forward position. It's a 2002 Camry. I moved the electric adjustment completely forward looking for an item and it would not return back to the original position. Both tilts...


I had the same problem on my 2003 Toyota Camry. The threaded drive screws are what spin underneath the seat and cause the seat to move back and forth (same way a garage door opens or closes). When the seat gets all the way in the forward position, the threading on the drive screws ends, which causes the bolts connected to the seat to jam and get stuck. It should sound like the motor is trying to turn but it won't, it just clicks. Un-jam the bolts and rotate them one rotation from the all the way forward position to ensure your seat is reinstalled straight.

A common cause for the heated seats to not work is a burned heater element. There is an element under the seat cushion cover, and one under the seatback cover. If either has failed, both will not work.
