Question about 1987 Buick Regal

1 Answer

The drivers side seat adjuster will not work properly so the seat sits in a recline position. How can this be fixed?

The seat will not sit properly upright. The seat adjuster part is discontinued. The driver's seat will not sit upright properly so you re driving in a eclined position. It appears the seat adjuser mechanism will require adjusting or replacing but cannot ind the part nor can find anyone with knowledof thisproblem. This is a manuel seat with the recline lever on the left side othe seat so wen you pull on it the seat witll either recline or sit up straight. I want the seat to st up straighter. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Yes? The thing about the Enclave/Acadia/Outlook triplets is that they are all great, but that second row is very uncomfortable. My friend was going to get the Enclave (amazing interior), but went with the Mazda CX-9 instead.

SOURCE: Heated Seats

I had the same problem on my 04 LeSabre. To check to see whether it was the element or the switch, I unplugged both seats and ran jumper wires to make left switch control the right element. The switch and element worked properly. Then I ran jumper wires to make right switch control the left element. The problem was the same, so it was the element was bad.

I had my element replaced at the dealership, since I didn't want to wreck my leather seats. It cost over $400 (about $150 for the element). I guess it just tucks next to the old element - the old element stays in place.

SOURCE: Cannot adjust seat back on drivers seat, Power

The seat can be disassembles the problem is the cable came off the levers handle and the back part of the seat were the handle is mounted has to be opened up the get to the parts, overwheit or srongly pushing on the seat while trying to chnge the adjustment is the reason for failure. Mosst shops don't have the right mechanics to take aprt seats but an aporstry shop will be able to tackel the job they have the right tools and practice to do thei s kind of work.

I am working on a solution motor that comes with a new gear and shaft. I have replaced one of them in my 02 Buick and have parts ordered to replace the other one. These are built with larger gears than the original plastic ones. They are still plastic but seem to work well and don't take the skill needed to replace the plastic gear with the brass one. I hope to take video when I replace the other motor in another couple weeks and upload it to youtube.

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.

Ford 2008 expedition, power drivers seat won't recline, but everything else works.


Power Recliner
The driver seat has an electro-mechanical backrest adjuster. The backrest adjustment switch is located on the side of the seat cushion side shield and is part of the seat control switch. The recliner motor is mounted to the backrest frame. Power recliners and motors are only serviceable by installing a new backrest frame assembly.

How can we adjust driver's seat so it isn't reclined?


If the lever that controls reclining does not work, some previous owner probably broke the mechanism.

Power seat won't recline


Sounds like the motor and gearing has worn out, they take a lot of punishment. Replacements are available (sometimes it works out much much cheaper to buy a whole second-hand seat). But that depends how much you like the car...

Back tilt is a manual round knob on drivers seat it just turns


It sounds like the inside of the recliner knob is stripped out. If you go to your local GM dealership and give them your VIN number they can order you a new one. Here is the removal and installation directions.
Driver or Passenger Seat Recliner Handle Replacement Removal Procedure
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool to remove the plastic center cap from the center of the recliner handle.

  2. Pull the recliner handle off the shaft.
Installation Procedure
  1. Install the recliner handle on the recliner shaft.

  2. Push the recliner handle firmly onto the recliner shaft until fully seated.
  3. Install the plastic center cap into the center of the recliner handle.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. The heated seat on the drivers side does not work. When you push the button to turn it on, the lights come on briefly then turn off.


Would you say it stays on about 30 seconds and does the passenger side do the same thing? If possible retrieving the codes will narrow down the search for a correct solution.If the passenger side is ok we may be able to eliminate the passenger side as bring part of the problem.Please advise so will know which way to go with your solution.


Condition/Concern:
Driver and passenger heated seats inoperative or shut off in 30 seconds. There will be DTCs B2435, B2440, B3606 and/or B1825 set in the Drivers Seat Module. The adjustable pedal position sensor, seat recliner position sensor and both heat seat thermistors share the same 5 volt reference internal to the Drivers Seat Module. A fault in any of these components/circuits can make the heated seats inoperative or shut off in 30 seconds, as well as, the seat recliner and/or adjustment pedals may move in short increments when operated. A fault in heated seats, adjustable pedal or seat recliner will affect BOTH heated seats.
Note:: Even if the vehicle is not equipped with adjustable pedals DTC B3606 still may set.


To help isolate the area of concern use the Tech 2 or a comparable scanner and go to "Sensor Data" in the Drivers Seat Module. Monitor the following parameters for being out of range:
Recline Position- Normal range .39V-4.58V
Pedal Position (if equipped) - Normal range .39V-4.58V
Psgr. Seat Heat Sensor- Normal range 1V-4V
Drvr. Seat Heat Sensor- Normal range 1V-4V
If a parameter is found to be out of range inspect circuits for any opens, shorts to ground, or voltage. If none found replace the suspect component.

Please be aware of the following common areas of concern:
  1. The adjustable pedal position sensor internally shorted pulling the 5 volt reference low. Disconnect the adjustable pedal position sensor and see if the heated seats start working correctly, if so replace. Note Important:: The APP (Accelerator Pedal Position) sensor is NOT the adjustable pedal position sensor. Make sure the correct sensor, adjustable pedal position sensor, is disconnected.
  2. The seat recliner position sensor internally shorted pulling the 5 volt reference low. Disconnect the recliner position sensor and see if heated seats start working correctly, if so replace.
  3. An open in either heated seat thermistor circuits (signal or low reference). The most common is the passenger thermistor where it passes through seat connector C305 pin "L" or "K" or C399 pins "R" or "G".
  4. A chaff to ground on either heated seat thermistor signal circuits. The most common is circuit 5475 black/red or dark blue shorted to ground in the passenger seat near the buckle. Note Important:: The heated seat thermistors act differently to "OPENS and SHORTS" than the adjustable pedal position sensor and seat recliner position sensor. The adjustable pedals and seat recliner sensors can be disconnected for testing of the heated seats. Where as the heated seat thermistor circuit must be working correctly before EITHER heated seat will operate. Disconnecting one thermistor, which may have a concern will not allow the opposite heated seat to work correctly, BOTH side must be operational before EITHER heated seat will operate.
Clearing DTCs
If DTCs will not clear when using the Tech 2 or comaparable scanner after a repair has been made, try operating the device in which the repair was made. Example, if a repair was made to the passenger heated seat thermistor circuit, the DTCs may not clear unless the passenger heated seat is operated.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

Passenger seat stuck in lying down position.


Use some penetrating lubricant on all pivot points and levers around the recline mechanism, and let the lubricant sit overnight. In the morning, try to work the recline mechanism free. (The vehicle is quite old at this point, and likely parts in the interior need lubrication. These parts should be lubricated annually.)

I had the same problem with my 2005 malibu vehicle. To find out the welds they use under the seat to connect the steel brackets are not that strong and snap leaving the seat at an angle position.The best bet is to look under the seat at the side thats angled down and look for a long metal pipe with a U shape it might look a little rusted.If this is so you need to find a welder to reweld the two pieces.
