SOURCE: driver side car seat

The seat may be too far forward, and when it is at the forward limits, the seat sticks. I get in the seat, and I press the back button whilst pushing hard with my feet against the floor.

SOURCE: Driver seat back won't raise after its been reclined

The control switch has developed a problem (intermittent contact or just broke inside) Replace the switch. That should fix it.

SOURCE: Power seat on driver side only goes forward and

The power switch for your seat is a six way switch . It only has one power lead going into it . So , if forward and backward work then you have power to the switch . Would you need to do is try the up and down control while listening closely . If you hear a clicking noise but nothing else when you energize the switch you probably have a bad vertical control motor . If you hear a motor running right after the clicking noise and you probably have a bad control cable which goes between the motor and the vertical gear . If you don't hear anything at all when you activate the switch up and down , I would suspect a bad switch .

SOURCE: 1998 Buick Regal LS driver power seat will not go

There is two differet motors and I believe two different switches. If not two switches, there should still be two motors. Either one of the motors is bad, or the swich is bad. You can use a voltmeter to test power to the motors to see if there is power going to them. If there is power to both motors, then the one motor that isn't turning is bad. If no power to one of the motors, then likely the switch is bad since the power source is the same fuse.

The driver seat will not go forward


if going backward is working,and foward is not,, easy
,1st determine what is defective-so u know what to replace/repair-2 things only ,[1-switch or 2- motor under d seat]
by presing the backward swicth,, you can hear the sound of the motor running and u can see the seat is going backward...
1-now by pressing the foward switch, and you hear the motor running but not that strong like the rear ..and the seat move an inche /a little and stop,,.then u have a defect weak motor,
2- now by pressing the foward swicth and u dont hear any motor running then the switch is most likely defective
defective switch -repair- spray contact cleaner,remove cover switch,penetrate inside
defective motor-repair-remove motor replace inside carbon,,.chiepest way not to spend to much money..
i suggest even once a month,lubricate all power seat/even not powerseat/,door hinges/.trunk door/.power antenna./ .by spraying lubricating oil,. for maintanace,..you can save a lot..

1995 Lincoln Continental, passenger seat won't tilt back forward


YOU HAVE A SWITCH OR A TILT ACTUATOR MOTOR PROBLEM. LINCOLNS HAVE 5 OR 6 ELECTRIC MOTORS MOUNTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH FRONT SEAT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVING THE SEAT TO INSPECT .THEIR ARE ALSO CABLES ATTATCHED TO THESE MOTORS SO LISTEN WHEN YOU HIT THE TILT SWITCH DO YOU HEAR A MOTOR NOISE? IF YOU DO THEN YOU MAY HAVE A BAD CABLE.

Drivers seat 2000 outback


So here is a diagram of the seat circuitry for your car. Since every other function works except the forward/backward slide function, that leaves basically the forward/backward slide motor, the seat switch, and/or the wiring. If you can verify that the wiring under the seat is in good condition without obstructions, chaffed wires, and/or wires pulled too tight, then it's safe to say it's down to just the motor and/or the switch. Sometimes if the passengers front seat has the same switch, you can plug it in to the drivers' side connector and see what works and what doesn't. If the seat works fine with the other switch, then that's all it needs, if not then it will need a motor. If the other seat doesn't have a switch then you can find them at wrecking yards, or just supply power and ground to the motor in question to see if it works. If it does, then you know you kneed a switch and if not then a motor.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

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.

1997 lincoln town car..pas. seat goes foward but wont go bakwards...any help


Try pushing back as you work the switch forward and backward. The most likely problem is a stuck runner. Remove the two front bolts and the two rear nuts from the seat legs and tilt the seat backwards to clean and lubricate the runners
