Power seat switch not responding

The switch for my front seats of this model car is not working anymore. I am wondering if that would be in the wires or is that on a fuse?

Front passenger power seat is back and won't go forward . . What can I do to get it working again ?

I would want to check wiring diagrams to check voltage and ground for applicable seat motor. If the seat motor is good, sometimes you can use proper jumper wires for voltage and ground to see if seat motor will work. If good voltage and ground with no motor action, sounds like faulty motor. If you remove seat in question, the testing might be easier? I can only talk about basics, w/o year--make--model, I can't look up wiring diagrams? My database will only cover vehicles sold in the US. It doesn't have everything, but, it has a bunch of info.

Power seat will not work on any positions 1996 park ave drivers side passenger side works

If NONE of the functions work for the driver's seat, I would suspect a boken wire. Check the ORANGE wire on Pin "L" at the seat switch connector. This should have power at all times.

Pin "A", the BLACK wire should be ground. It grounds at G200, which is located in the left front kick panel.

If both of these wires are good and functioning properly, then you most likely have a fried seat control switch.

1995 ford explorer front passenger power seat not working

All of these items are feed by fuse 5 (30amp) in the under hood fuse box. If this fuse is checking good then go to the power seat switch and check the black/white wire there for power.

This wire leaves the fuse and goes thru the center connector of the 3 connectors on the firewall to the left fo the brake booster. It then goes thru another connector located to the left of the steering column under the dash.

Here is a copy of the wiring schematic that may help you....

The only other thing I know to tell you if you can not find that connector by the picture of the location and the picture of the connector is get you a 30 amp fuse holder and fuse and wire it to the black/White wire at the seat switch. That should get them working. This and other details could be find in the Ford Explorer Service Manual (I have the same year and model XLT).

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

The leather seats will easily bolt right up, but you need to check and see if your car has the wiring harness for the power seats tucked under the carpet. Often, all cars have the proper harness,but not connected, and the fusebox has no fuse installed either, but it is a good thing to check before you start the project.
