Hi,
Usually it's a mechanical limit - as in the seat's 'track' (or seat rail) only goes so far. You should see a 'stop' on the front and back on the track that the seat moves on. Move the seat all the way Forward and look under on the BACK of the seat track to see what I mean.

2008 Ford Expedition rear folding seat in down position will not come up


More then likely the electric motor is failing, going up puts allot more load on the small motor. Have a dealer check this and confirm my guess.

Heater blower only works on high. Replaced the resistor no difference.Checked fuses OK. What else could it be.


The resistor has a thermal limiter in it, if its bad, it cannot be reset. The blower motor may be bad causing high amperage, burning out the limiter. At the resistor,Ck if there is power at the GRAY/BROWN and GREEN/WHITE, and BLACK/GRAY wires, they should. If not CK the Violet/Orange wire, it should have power.If the Violet /Orange wire has power, but the others do not the limiter is bad and it needs replacement (resistor) If all have power, then when gounding each wire (except the Violet/Orange wire) the blower should come on

Blower motor doesnt work


replace the blower motor speed control resistor, the thermal limiter is most likely blown in the resistor, the resistor is located next to the blower motor, see picture below, the aprt is very cheap to buy and takes only minutes to replace

Where is the blower resister on a 2004 crown victoria


very unusual location. usually inside the car in the plenum case by passenger floor, but here it is:


Blower Motor Switch Resistor
The heater blower motor switch resistor has the following features:
  • The assembly is located in the engine compartment on the evaporator housing toward the center of the vehicle.
  • Three resistor elements are mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • Depending on the heater blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the A/C blower motor circuit to decrease or increase A/C blower motor speed.
  • A device to prevent overheating (thermal limiter) will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches 121°C (250°F) interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except HI.
  • The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.

2ooo ford explorer driver side electric seat will not work can you please help


check owner manual for location of fuses and relay that control seat. it has 2 motors, one for the seat back & one for the sliding back & forth. If one works, suspect motor. If both don't work, suspect fuse or relay.
Also, check wires for chafing under seat, they can get cut if out of position.
report back.

Kia sedona front passenger seat stuck in forward position


Electric or manual??? If electric one of the motors has gone out. If the kids were playing with it they may have held the button down causing the motor to spin while the seat was all the way foward and it will just burn the motor up after so long. Also the switch could be bad. Unfortunatley being that its power there is no way to manually move the seat back without the motor turning or removing the seat and spinning the motor sprocket by hand...

The electric driver's seat on my 2000 Ford Explorer will not move


the switch has failed or a combination of the switch and motor. the switch will be the easiest to replaace as you will have to remove and on some vehicle partially disassemble the seat to do the motor. The switch os mounted on the plastic panel which is held to the seat usually by 2 - 4 screws.

The seat belt gets stuck and makes a loud and distracting noise


The system can be operated manually by removing round cover cap on the B pillar (Just behind door). manually turn crank knob on top of motor.

There is a limit switch on the A pillar to turn off the motor for forward movement. There is a limit switch on the B pillar to shut off the motor for rearward movement.

You may need a B pillar limit switch if the belt is going all the way back but not shutting off. Unfortunately the rear limit switch is serviced with the track & motor assembly. Get a used one at car-part.com. Page with * is cheapest part.


You need to remove A pillar trim, B pillar lower trim, B pillar upper trim, and front door opening upper trim.

disconnect front limit switch
disconnect rear limit switch
disconnect motor electrical connector
remove 3 motor bolts
remove 2 limit switch bracket bolts
remove screw at A pillar near limit switch
remove 3 screws at track assy to roof.
pull back carpet & remove 4 screws at floor where you step into car.
remove track & motor assy.

F150 2004 blower working only on high position.


this is because your blower motor resisters are burned out for speeds 1,2 & 3. High speed does not have a resister.

Replace the resister. If it goes a 2nd time, it is because your blower motor is failing & drawing too much current.

it is behind the glove box I think. It is in the plenum case where air blowing on it keeps it cool.

Easy repair. May need to access throught glove box which should open all the way down when you squeeze the sides in.

Go to tascafordparts.com for a discounted resister.
Please rate as solved problem if this is what you needed.

Blower problem


The blower motor resistor:
  • is located on the heater core and evaporator core housing near the blower motor.
  • has three resistor elements mounted on the resistor board to provide four blower motor speeds.
  • depending on the blower motor switch position, series resistance is added or bypassed in the blower motor circuit to decrease or increase blower motor speed.
  • has an overheating device (thermal limiter) that will open the resistor coil when the temperature reaches approximately 184°C (363°F) , interrupting the blower motor operation in all speeds except high.
  • is serviced as an assembly. The thermal limiter cannot be reset and is not serviceable.
REMOVAL
  1. Lower the glove compartment.
  2. Remove the screws and position aside the 4x4 control module.
  3. Remove the blower motor resistor.
4 Disconnect the electrical connector. 5 Remove the screws and the blower motor resistor. INSTALLATION
  1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
