You can do it yourself with a little patience you will have to take the seat out there should be bolts holding the seat to the floor take these out unplug the seat motor it is a wire harness setup turn the seat upside down and undo the motor from the frame reverse the process to install the new motor as a precaution unhook the battery.

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.

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

I found this post area while looking for a way to fix my stuck 2001 Camry LE drivers seat. Sure enough, while engaging the seat motor (it could be heard making an initial clikc), I hit the front rails a coupel time prettysolidly with a rubber mallet. That fixed it!

Thanks to all for providing a quick fand easy way to get the seat moving again!

2003 Buick Regal: how do I hook up the front seat heating system? I think they're just disconnected. I can see all the wires under the driver's side seat. Neither the driver's side seat heater or seat...


The last time I checked one of these, the wiring harness for everything you just described is underneath the seat. You'll have to move the seat all the way forward or back to get to the harnesses to reconnect them.

I hope this helps! :) Let me know if you need any further assistance in this matter.

Power driver's seat only travels forward and backward on one side of seat. Other side works fine. Seat does travel up and down properly.


Power seat movement is controlled by numerous small motors underneath the seat.

Front and back movement is often actuated through a motor on one side that connect to a rod (with some type of gear on the end of it) that runs to the other side. This rod can get out of position, or possibly something can go wrong in the gear.

You'll likely have to remove the seat to diagnose the problem.

How do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.
