Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

My Deville drivers seat does'nt move at all.

My husband has been trying to trouble shoot and repair it but is not having luck. He disconnected the drivers seat and can get the passenger seat to move, but as soon as he reconnects the driver seat the fuse or what ever it is called burns out. Can any one help me figure out the problem, or where to find more info? Thanks

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.

Drivers side heated seat will not heat

Hello: If the switch is good and connected then the element in the seat has failed. The element is under the seat covering. Cadillac came out with a bulletin that explained how to trouble shoot the electrical part of the pad and how to repair it. I do not have the bulletin. The heated seats were a big problem (high failure rate)

Drivers seat does not move forward or back all other positions OK, has memory settings

Hi there, You can try disconnecting the battery wait ten minutes and maybe everything will reset. Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual at your local AP store for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step RR section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy
