    Doesn't sound right. The switch works for up, down and incline. The motor is working just not completely. The seat even goes back.

Try going to a salvage yard and picking up another switch. If you have the same problem there after, the motor has failed.

    Some vehicles have more than one motor providing some of the seat functions. This can cause the type of problem that you described. Trying a different switch was a quick way to eleminate it as the problem. Its a multifunction switch, so just because it workes in other positions doesn not eleminate it as the problem. If you only have one motor driving the seat, the switch is the most likely cause outside of broken or loose wires. However, you can verify whether or not the switch or motor is bad with this test. Using a wire diagram, first located the wires which delivers the power and ground to the motor for forward movement. While holding the switch forward, check for power and ground at the seat motor connector using a 12v test light or Digial volt ohm meter. If no power or ground is present, perform a continuity test on the wires in question. If the wires are good, the switch is bad. If power is present at the seat connector then the motor is bad.

I have a 1991 Volvo 740 wagon. I've tried to put the back seats down flat before, but i can never quite get it to go down all the way. Is it possible? If so, how? Thanks!


You have to flip the bottom of the rear seat forward. There should be a strap to pull where the seat bottom and seat back meet. The seats will not fold all the way down with out flipping the bottom up first.

I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz that I just bought, and the drivers side seat will not move forward, it will go in all other directions, but won't move forward...any suggestions?


There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

Difficulty locating my Benz R350 Batteries


In the 2006, the battery is under the front passenger seat.

To get to it is complicated -- from manual:


Move seat as far back as possible. Seat rails have covers on them - slide them forward....the left one will only slide forward, cannot be removed. Between the two seat rails you will see two little battery cover mounting nuts. Use 6 mm T-handle hex key to remove the nuts. Move seat as far forward as possible and twist rear rail covers to left and right and then pull toward rear of car. Pull back/fold floor carpet under seat from front to back (carpet is perforated so you may have to really yank the first time). There are two more battery cover mounting nuts between rear seat rails. There is a battery cover with an air vent pull it slightly to right and then lift out. There is a vent hose attached to battery on left side -- pull it out. Unfasten & remove attachment nuts on left side (low). Remove the battery attachment once those nuts are off. Push battery to the left. Disconnect battery negative lead (right) (do not let it touch pos. lead on left). Remove cover from pos (red/left) terminal and disconnect lead.

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.

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.
