U will need to replace the power seat transmission, the gears are most likely stripped out, not uncommon, this part is $800 so i would suggest u try to locate a used one.

SOURCE: The electric driver's seat on my 2000 Ford Explorer will not move

the switch has failed or a combination of the switch and motor. the switch will be the easiest to replaace as you will have to remove and on some vehicle partially disassemble the seat to do the motor. The switch os mounted on the plastic panel which is held to the seat usually by 2 - 4 screws.

The motor and gears in the track are getting stuck.Either a weak motor or gears stuck. Try this procedure as follows;--- Have somebody sit in the back and push the seat forwards at the frame while
you push the button forwards.Don't push at the headrest but as low as possible

To avoid getting stuck again don't put the seat all the way backwards, just
move it forwards ahead to get the tension of the track/motor.
-------- But if the seat get pushed forward but if its still doing the same then its weak motor and it has to be replaced.But if its not getting pushed forward to its last.Then its bent tracks from which the seat moves.The tracks needs to be checked from which the seat moves back and forth.
The owners manual says about power seats. "It states that if the power seat doesnt't work, put the seat back section of the seat down to it's lowest position a couple of times. This somehow resets the body module for the driver seat." ---------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Why doesn't driver's power seat move forward or back?

All those seat motors are under the seat. The forward and back motor has cables that are used to move the seat. If a plug are cable came loose, easy to find. Can be a pain to fix. Not much room to work. Some times the seat has to come out. I think I would be more worried to what damage is on the bottom of the car first. Just saying.

Driver power seat

The automatic driver's seat may have been programed not to move forward when the key is in and go back when it's taken out. Or are you saying it doesn't move forward, back and not at all from the control on door panel?

Front seat will not slide forward? The seat will move up and down, tilt, and the lumbar works? Even the heated/cooling seat works? What do I need to look for and how do I fix it:?

The power seat in the truck has 3 motors, one of them is not working, the most common cause of this is the power seat switch is defective, it is often the forward and reverse seat positioning switch that fails because it is the one that is most used. If the switch checks ok then you will need to replace the the power seat track assembly, Ford does not sell any parts for the track, it is only available as one complete unit, I know this because i retired form a Ford dealer. Please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

Drivers seat 2000 outback

So here is a diagram of the seat circuitry for your car. Since every other function works except the forward/backward slide function, that leaves basically the forward/backward slide motor, the seat switch, and/or the wiring. If you can verify that the wiring under the seat is in good condition without obstructions, chaffed wires, and/or wires pulled too tight, then it's safe to say it's down to just the motor and/or the switch. Sometimes if the passengers front seat has the same switch, you can plug it in to the drivers' side connector and see what works and what doesn't. If the seat works fine with the other switch, then that's all it needs, if not then it will need a motor. If the other seat doesn't have a switch then you can find them at wrecking yards, or just supply power and ground to the motor in question to see if it works. If it does, then you know you kneed a switch and if not then a motor.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

My Driver Power Seat is stuck all way forward is goes up and down but not backwards ive checked and replaced the fuse but nothing so now the car is un driveable

either the contact for forward/reverse on your power seat is faulty or the motor is going bad which is less probable than my first suggestion. If you have a little patience, a bsaic mechanical aptitude and a circuit tester (like you'ld check a fuse with) you could test the for/rev function when you press the switch to determine if its electrical problem or the motor

Can you enable a 6 way power seat with out hooking it in the car it self? I have a ford edge power seat with memory module and I just want to know if i can make it work without connecting it to a car....

A six way powered seat with memory, will be a complicated creature. Control of such a thing would involve a smart board and several relays. The quickest way to determine if it would be a nightmare to figure out without a wiring chart, is to examine the wire harness that would attach to the car. If it only has a few wires you may be in luck. More than 5, then I wish you luck. Just a few wires will still be a task, but in general the smaller wires would go to the control panel that runs memory functions, and the larger ones would power the internal control board in the seat.

Unfortunately this is a long shot. Your best course of action will likely be to remove the panel with the switches, wire them individually to each respective motor directly through a reversing relay. and find a 12v battery to power it all.

Power driver seat in F150 moves back but not forward

Just picking at you. It would have to be a bad switch. Forward and back are on the same circuit switch just reverses the power and ground to the motor.
