The kids "adjusted" the passenger seat to its forward limit. Now it won't go back. The seat back rest still adjusts.

    I posted this. I fixed the problem by removing the switch assy. and spraying it with a degreaser, then spraying with a cleaner/lubricant. (De-oxit)

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...

    Keep an eye on it as this may only be a temp fix. If the unit was exposed to moisture that is a possible cause. You can use electronic contact cleaner (doesn't leave a residue) and it evaporates within a few seconds. If the area gets exposed to lost of moisture try getting some dielectric grease for the electrical connections to lock out moisture

My driver side seat won't go all the way forward. But when I let it back it goes back and goes down. When I move it forward it lifts up high but don't go forward enough for me.


Seat adjustment ranges are sometimes limited and sometimes there is a fault, such as a coin or something falling into one of the runners.

Cars intended for the premium market often have forward/back, up/down and sometimes tilt adjustment for the driver seat while for the small car, basic or budget market usually only have forward or back. Because on average a person who has shorter legs and needs the seat forward will also have a shorter body so enterprising designers have made the seat runners of some models slope upwards to lift the driver as the seat is moved forward.

Adjustable steering columns are fairly common, though only in the rise/fall plane. I haven't seen a telescopic column for many years. What is really needed is adjustable pedals but designers and manufacturers are very reluctant to go down that avenue, though there are companies specialising in such modifications.

You need to be on the ground on your knees with a good light looking under the seat to see if the available adjustment range takes the seat to the true limit of its travel in both directions.

I need a diagram for 2005 Kia Sedona eletric front passenger seat. The seat is stuck In full recline & won't come back up.


I would put money on it being a faulty switch, if your confident enough take it apart and clean the contacts inside, but beware its a fiddly job with tiny bits that you can lose, so do it where you can keep track on the bits, not in the car. the seat is moved via 2 switches that are inside the unit, these do get dirty internal contacts due to being made from cheap components. Unfortunately I don't have a diagram, but if the seat will move forward/back and up/down, then I think it will be the switch.

Passenger seat won't lock in place


The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.

Ait bag warning light on, plus passenger seat doesnt fold forward correctly and difficult to get back in the correct position after letting passengers into the rear. 2002 cooper. thanks


Regarding the passenger seat, to allow someone into the back seat, push the seat back lever DOWN. This will flip the back of the seat forward and allow the seat to slide forward. Simply push firmly on the seat back (no need to touch the lever) and it will return to its original position.

If you pull the seat back lever UP, you can adjust the recline angle of the seat back. Pulling the lever UP will also let you fold the seat and slide it forward, however, it will not return to its original position.

Sorry, cannot solve your airbag question.

I have a kia 2006 sedona. the passenger side front seat belt locks you back to the seat very hard and will not release to allow forward movement.


Hi, this is a generic problem with the car and once these belts is beginning to lock up, its almost impossible to free them. It's high time you visit the deal and preparing your mind to change it...

I have a 2006 Kia Sadona, electric front seats. The passenger seat will tilt back slowly but will not tilt forward. How do I return the seat to the upright position? Can the electric switch still work...


yes, usual you will find coins or something lodged in the treaded bar on the seat motor, if not water damage can corrode the bar, check the bar as it goes in and out. ( rate me )
