SOURCE: Front driver seat adjustments.

I just had this problem fixed with a Tech 2 tool in my '03 yukon xl denali. The seat has a control module underneath of it that controls the 2-position memory, the power seat functions, etc. It needed to be reprogrammed - about $200 at the dealership, or free if you 1) have a good relationship with your service manager, or 2) own or know someone with a Tech 2 tool.

At first I thought it was because I had a Canadian model truck (the headlight switch is stuck "on" at all times no matter what position it's in, and the rear air controls are in celcius and not farenheight).

I'm assuming the switch worked before, and you may have encountered some sort of electrical issue (like a dead battery, or you gave someone a jump, you have a bad ground, you just installed an aftermarket stereo, you used a computer tuner, etc.).

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 1995 BMW 525i seat height motor works on one side of seat only

there are 2 cables that come out of the motor that operates that feture. Over time the outsdie tube of the cable streaches, causing the cable that turns inside, to come out of the transmission is drives. One way to fix this is to remove this cable and shoren the outside tube by cutting it, and then re-insall back into the transmission. This is a 50/50 chance repair. The correct way to cure this issue is to replace the lower seat frame. $$$

I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

Hi Chris,Are you sure there are adjustments for height in your vehicle? The controls are usually visible and not hidden. If you don't have that facility, and need it, go visit a breakers yard and buy a couple of seats that are equipped with those adjustments and fit them to your vehicle.Regards Johngee10

How can I adjust the height of the driver's seat in a '74 beetle ?


this is not possible without extensive seat base modification. It would be cheaper to take the seat back to the upholsterer and have them use a thinner foam in the seat.

Adjust the driver sheet hight


If you have electric seats push the smaller of the two buttons/levers up and it should raise the seat.
