Question about 2003 Cadillac CTS
Few different things could be causing this; Power seats have 3 or 4 little separate motors in the seat that spin little drive cables to the gear assembly to power the action you request (up/down, forward/backwards, (in some cases the up/down is separate for the front or rear of seat) recline, side wing panels, etc.). You didn't say if you could hear the motor for F&B running when you press the switch. If you don't hear it could be that motor for that action is fried or you have a bad spot in your control switch. If you do hear it run it could be that the drive cable is bad, or there is a stripped area in the gear mesh (if you hear it run, have you tried pushing in the seat at the same time in the same direction? That would show a stripped gear area). If you want to try fixing it yourself, do the "get out and get under" with a helper to start the diagnosis; put the seat all the way up then with flashlight in hand, look (and listen) under the seat while you have your helper work the switch. That's the best way to start and then go from there. Good luck! If you do find the problem requires parts go to a salvage yard and see if you can find a similar power base (seat can be reused) or if it's the switch you're best off getting it from the dealer or you can try an online place like this: RockAuto Parts Catalog
