Yes actually there are more than 2. If one quits working you will get seat twist or it won't move in certain directions but will in others.

I have a 2008 MKZ and the driver power seat suddenly. Quit working. The main fuse is OK and the control switch checked out good..is there a secondary fuse. Or does th)e motor need replacing


When you toggle the switch to the different positions of seat movement do the motors receive power? Also if one or more of the motors (there are 3 I think) is defective they are not available separately, you must replace the entire power seat track assembly.

Is there a manual lever for the 2000 toyota sienna when the power seat no longer works????


I think that power seats are different than the manual seats fundamentally. So, if the motor stops working, it is stuck in that position until electrical repairs are made.

I don't think there is a manual lever override for any power seats that I have seen.

Everything works on the power seats except unable to move seats forward and backward


There are usually 3 motors for power seats, 1 to tilt the seat, 1 to raise and lower the seat, and 1 to move the seat back and forth. I would think that motor is bad. Check for any obstuctions to the seat track.

My 2005 equinox driver car seat will not go forward or backward anymore. It is power seat. Any suggestions? I think it is the seat motor, but that part is like 250.00 so is there anything else it could be?


Only other thing I could think of is that the connection to the motor could have come unplugged or there is a short in the wiring. It could have gotten pinched. I would check all the plugs that go under the seat. If you have someone who knows how to use a multimeter they can test to see if there is any power getting to the motor or if the motor is good.

I cannot read what any of the fuses are for. I need a diagram because my power seat quit working. thx


The power seats use a circuit breaker. Power Accessory (PWR ACC) As the breaker cools off, it works again. Suggest your problem is in the power seat switch, or the motor for the power seat.

Power seat motor broken


Yhea you have to disassemble the entire seat and order a new base for it. We have repaired a few of them at the shop. I have had one just welded back together but it never sits quite the way it used to.

My drivers side power seat not moving but i can hear the power working when i hold the switch. fuses and circuit breakers good. why wont it move?


Had exactly the same problem. Hacked a solution, disconnected the flexible cable from the motor. Problem was the nylon drive gear was stripped. Just twisted the cable by hand to desired position ( wife's car) to fit her. Left cable detached and accessible under the seat if needed again. Big tussel getting the seat removed. GM has a very large strange torx screw holding the seat belt mount which has to be removed. Other strangeness the front 2 seat mount bolts were metric. The rear 2 were US SAE standard. Other strangness one bolt was never installed at factory ?? Was probably close to lunch time at the seat place. If you want to repair fully you should get a used ? motor as I think the wholw motor housing was rather crimped and built into th seat frame. That's probably why I did the "manual hack" works well for a year now. Now window motors are another sad story.
(inner door pannel is welded in place) need to cut for access - Dealer quited $500 - window is rather still closed.
Good Luck
