I had this same problem for years, no obstructions. But, everytime I took it in, the seat would work for them and go backwards. I thought it maybe it was a weight issue. I had my husband bounce up and down, the seat wouldn't go back for him either. I was always told in the beginning, it could be the motor. Which I'm sure you know by now would be the priciest option. Well, after leaving it for another time, I said to replace the motor. Which is probably when they did the most extensive work to determine that it actually was the motor. Anyways......it was expensive, but worth the cost. Now I don't have to worry each time someone valets it, rotates the tire....I've trashed my note to not move the seat. You might save a few years and actually enjoy the seat if you change the motor now. Good luck.

SOURCE: Drivers electic seat will not adjust

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

SOURCE: my drivers power seat moves up and down but wont

replace your switch first. if that doesn't help, test your harness for the forward/reverse and see if it's getting power when you push the switch. if it is, your motor is out and needs to be replaced. most likely it's the switch.

Why will my 2012 Ford Taurus seat go backward but not forward, goes up or down also


You know, I had that exact problem when a nickle fell down between the seats and blocked the track the seat runs on. Another time, a penny did the same thing on another car.
A test would be to unplug the harness under the seat and see if the seat was getting "juice" when the button was pushed to make it go "forward".
God bless your efforts.

2001 Honda Accord electric seat moves up and down but not forward and backward.


Could be a bad switch or motor, or something jamming the seat movement.
Can you hear the motor running on both switches and directions?
I don't think they would have two fuses for the seat, but that might be a possibility.
Hope this helps.

The power seat adjuster has stopped moving the seat forward/backward but will adjust the seat up/down. I can't find anything obstructing its path. Is there a simple explanation for this? Jeep Liberty 2002.


Those power seats have two power motors. One moves it up and down. The one that moves the seat forward and backwards must have gone bad. Have it checked and replaced if necessary.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

The reason is that your sliding grips have been slipped and therefore jammed at one position.

Remove the seat open it's sliding grips and replace it.
