If you probe one wire at a time on motor with a test light, and move switch to up & down position, it should light up in one or the other, then the other wire should light up in opposite direction of switch, if not, check at switch for power going in, and if you have power going in, and have confirmed good ground as well, then it must be the switch. Hope that makes sense, if not let me know.

Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?


These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

Make sure there are no obstructions under the seat. Check the switch first. If the other functions are working then the power circuit is OK. I have a feeling its the motor. Best way to check the system is to unbolt the seat from the floor and lean it back to gain access for testing. It could be a broken cable or pivot points frozen also. But I still feel its the motor. This is a system that is generally not used often and the motors have a tendency to stick. While holding the switch down tap on the motor with a hammer to see if it starts working.

What could cause my drivers side power seat to stop moving forward and backward?


sounds like you might have a switch problem if the memory for seat position works ok. If you have a multimeter that checks for continuity then you could start there at the switch but you would also need a wiring diagram for the seats

Front seat will not slide forward? The seat will move up and down, tilt, and the lumbar works? Even the heated/cooling seat works? What do I need to look for and how do I fix it:?


The power seat in the truck has 3 motors, one of them is not working, the most common cause of this is the power seat switch is defective, it is often the forward and reverse seat positioning switch that fails because it is the one that is most used. If the switch checks ok then you will need to replace the the power seat track assembly, Ford does not sell any parts for the track, it is only available as one complete unit, I know this because i retired form a Ford dealer. Please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

There are 3 motors mounted under the seat to move the postion of the seat, the cable for that motor maybe broken. Also check that the pivot points move freely and that there is nothing jammed in the seat tracks.

My Toyota Camry passanger power seat is adjustable in all directions EXCEPT backwards. It can be adjusted up and down, and the back can be moved as well. The main seat itself was pushed all the way forward...


There are numerous small motors in the seat mechanism that control the seat movement, and these motors can either go bad or have connection problems.

If you can isolate the problem to which of these motors is the culprit, you can likely get another motor at a salvage yard. They are probably also available from Toyota, but you might get sticker shock when they quote the price.

A motor in the power seat of a 93 Lexus LS 400 that I owned went out, and Lexus was asking $300.00 for a replacement. I purchased an entire seat from a salvage yard for $75.00 and got far more motors than I needed.

Passenger seat doesnt move forward or back


that motor has eithe become jammed or has gone bad. Sometimes u can replace the moor itself or you have to get a whole new seat sub-frame that has the motor assemblies on them already. getting the seat frame is the easiest repair as switching the motors can be time consumiing and difficuly if you loose a screw or washer.

1998 Cougar power seat works in all directions except forward


THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF THIS IS THE SEAT SWITCH (WIGGLE THE SWITCH WHILE YOU TRY TO MOVE THE EAT), IF THAT DOESN'T FIX IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE POWER SEAT TRANSMISSION, A VERY EXPENSIVE PART, SO TRY THE SWITCH 1ST.

Suburban seat problems


sounds like the motor brushes are about worn out.
Where you actually sitting on the seat when you applied power directly to the motor? If the motor is wearing out, it may work under little or no load but won't work when your weight is on the seat. Will the seat move while hitting the button if you also help push the seat in the direction you are trying to move it? If yes, the motor is weak. Change the motor, check, clean and lube the tracks, if nec., then see if that's better.
