SOURCE: power seat moves up and down but not back and

If you do not always work on your own vehicles or have the
factory manuals to follow trouble charts, you won't be able to
do a thing with your seat problem

You already know that

I personally buy every manual including wiring diagrams
for all my vehicles, as soon as I purchase them

I have done this for almost 50 years, so I'm not normal

I would go to a wiring diagram, knowing no more than you,
& at least start checking seat switches,of coarse given my
electrical skills

After that, you need to go to workshop manuals to disable the
air bag system, so you don't get hurt etc & then remove the seat,
to continue on

I would guess your off to a repair shop, or you just live with the issue

SOURCE: the driver side power seat button moves forward and backward and reclines, but wont move up or down, the seat is stuck all the way down so i cant get to the wrom gear underneath, how do i go about ra

I am working on a replacement motor that will come with a new gear/shaft on it. I have one of my setups in the car right now and have the parts for another one ordered. I hope to make a video of the repair in a couple weeks when the parts show up. Still uses plastic gears, but these are larger, more durable gears and the swap is fairly straight forward with just a few modifications.

The most common problem is that the little plastic teeth in the motor have broken off. Some people replace the plastic gear with brass ones, others mold new teeth on. I made a video of putting different motors in. Here is the link to my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQLVvUf-9rs

assuming you mean the seat is broken on the frame and not moving under power, remove the seat, fix (weld?) the frame or replace it.

Front drivers seat will not slide back and forth.


No, check for a blockage in the seat track. You have one power source for all seat functions. If it works one way but not the others it is either a bad switch, or bad motor, or a blockage.

Driver seat is stuck all the way back.


Sounds like you have something stuck in the seat track look under the seat with a flash light to see if any thing binding the seat from moveing or if something looks broken and is stuck in the track spray with WD40 that will also help then work it back and forth until it starts moveing freely

the problem is probably mechanical. unbolt the seat and do a visual while operating the controls. something is loose or may be broken. I thing it may be a simple obstruction preventing the latch from engaging

My driver side seat will not move forward or backward


Can you hear the motor turn when trying to go back and forth? If not, motor may be faulty or bad relay in the wiring to that motor.
If you hear motor and seat doesn't move, then the motor may have fallen off track

Driver seat not moving back and forth


under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS 
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again
