The switch assembly is inserted from the bottom-up. You will have to remove the door panel to access and service the switches.

How to remove electric drivers seat 2008 buick lucerne


There will be 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor of the car. They will have plastic trim pieces covering the bolts. You will need to move the seat all the way back to get to the front 2, and all the way forward to get to the rear ones. You will need to undo the wire connectors and free the seat belt base to remove the seat.

Electric drivers seat will only operate when


If it works well with the engine running, you may have high resistance on the circuit. If the plug is dirty or not seated properly, you can get this. The extra power from the alternator can give enough "oomph" to the seat to move when the car is running.
Otherwise, it sounds like the motor may be worn.
Try pressing it at different angles. My wife's XG300 only works if you press it a specific way. Maybe the hill causes you to hold it just the right way. Who knows?
Take a look under the seat and/or behind the plastic cover on the seat where the switch is and see if you can find any loose or dirty connections.
I wish you the best with that!

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.

Drivers power seat will not move forward or back.


check first to make sure there is nothing caught in the track or under the seat or there maybe a bad wire on the power motor itself and yes there should be a fuse or relay check under the dash for the box there and the diagram will tell if you if one is there or check the relay box under the hood for the relay for it

Electric front seat stuck


the first thing to do is remove the plastic skirt around rhe seat,to do this remove the seat movement knobs by prying them off with screwdriver,gental steady pressure works,then remove the screw in the rear( back seat compartment),three screws at seat switches and the side skirt will pull out (four tabs are connected to the mating plastic pieces,pull outtoward you). two screws hold the front skirt on these are tough to get to they are at an angle. with this skirt removed you can get to the motor,
three screws remove the the motor (Isuggest unplugging motor,small connector) on each end of shaft are retaining bushings rotate them toward the back and they will disengage,you can now pick up the motor and the the shafts will come out with it.these shafts disengage from the motor and should be kept seperate (greasey)
I used a R2 square drive bit (the driver used to install deck screws) to find which screwdrive is jammed, I adjusted the other one to its front stop with square driver bit the worked the jammed one back and forth mostly toward the rear and it worked free.
I adjusted this one to the front stop and reassembled the motor,shaft(make shure to snap retaining bushing in place)reconnect motor connector,all plastic skirts AND NEVER ALLOW THE SEAT TO TRAVEL TO ITS FRONT STOP AGAIN. (4HRS)
