Power seat I was moving my seat all the way forward to put something behind it. I got to the end and I heard a small pop. Now none of the functions work. I checked the fuse and it's good. There was no problems before this, any ideas?

Pull the power seat switch and check for 12 volts at the switch, if that is ok then the power seat has almost certainly failed, they are not repaired, they are sold as a complete unit, very big bucks

Hi,

Some vehicles have more than one motor providing some of the seat functions. Trying a different switch was a quick way to eliminate it as the problem. Its a multifunction switch, so just because it works in other positions doesn’t 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.

Let us know if you want something more else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting Fixya .com

Why doesn't driver's power seat move forward or back?


All those seat motors are under the seat. The forward and back motor has cables that are used to move the seat. If a plug are cable came loose, easy to find. Can be a pain to fix. Not much room to work. Some times the seat has to come out. I think I would be more worried to what damage is on the bottom of the car first. Just saying.

Where is the drivers power seat relay located


This is a really common problem with Pathfinders. I have seen 3 that have had this problem. 1. Disconnect battery. 2. Disconnect the power connector under the seat that is connected to the seat motor. 3. Spray electrical connector cleaner into connector. 4. Reconnect the connector. 5. Tap on the electric motor with a small hammer a few times, and try to turn the output shaft with pliers half a turn (if you can reach it). The seat motor is about 4 inches back from the front edge of the seat, center. 6. Reconnect battery. After doing this to ALL 3 of the victim vehicles, the seat began to work again. Also: look to see if something has not fallen into the seat track. I have found bic lighters sometimes get jammed in there nicely. Lastly, if none of this works, then try pulling the seat forward by placing your hand in the gap between where the seat bottom meets the seat back, and move the switch while you are tugging on the seat.

MY DRIVERS SIDE POWER SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD BUT ALL OTHER PARTS OF THE SEAT WORK FINE I CAN HEAR SOMETHING CLICKING WHEN I TRY TO MOVE THE SEAT BUT THE SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD


Check under the seat for broken wires. Forward and backwards is the function most used and causes the wires to bend back and forth. you may need to remove the seat for inspection or you may be lucky and see the problem just by raising the seat as high as it will go.

Front seat will not slide forward? The seat will move up and down, tilt, and the lumbar works? Even the heated/cooling seat works? What do I need to look for and how do I fix it:?


The power seat in the truck has 3 motors, one of them is not working, the most common cause of this is the power seat switch is defective, it is often the forward and reverse seat positioning switch that fails because it is the one that is most used. If the switch checks ok then you will need to replace the the power seat track assembly, Ford does not sell any parts for the track, it is only available as one complete unit, I know this because i retired form a Ford dealer. Please rate my help for Fixya. Thanks

Drivers seat does not move in the backward mode.all the other switch functions work properly.the seat is all the way forward and I cannot get in the drivers seat. I appreciate your help, thank you.


ssqsantiago, What you have to do is look under the seat and look for the electrical connections. You may find that one of the connections has a broken wire. If not, then disconnect each connection one at a time and look for any rusted pin or wires. If there are none of the above then what you can do is to figure out which motor moves the seat forward and backward and apply direct power to the motor. You will need a 12 volt battery for this and wires long enough to reach the motors connection. If the motor does not react to the power source then reverse the wires. If the motor still does not react at this time then the motor will have to be replaced. What you can do in the meantime is remove the motor and try to move the seat manually. Good luck with this.

2002 camry Driver's side power seat all the way forward and won't move backwards. Other power seat functions working fine. Tried moving it with engine off and engine on. Is there a manual release?


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!

Subaru outback all wheel drive electric seat switch stuck


I just went through and determined it was the switch. My wife had accidentally moved the seat almost all of the way forward - and the reverse did not work at all - she was very cramped. After going thru fuses and seeing that none were blown I looked for loose wiring under the seat and found none. I was about to pull the seat when I stopped and decide to pull the side cover first. Item 5 in the photo below. Once that was off access to the switch was easy - item 3. The box actually contains a set of 3 switch housings each with 2 switches on it - total of 6 for each direction. I unplugged the large connector to this switch. Then I cut some wire off of a roll of wire i had in the garage and stripped both ends. I put one wire into the power contact (red) and the other into ground (black) and then took the other end of both wires and connected them across the other contacts in the connector. Pretty quickly I could determine which pair of contacts controlled which motor. I got the right combination that allowed me to operate the seat-reverse motor and get the seat back into the right position... problem solved. I still need to find a replacement switch box at a junk yard but no hurry now that the seat is back to a comfortable position.

'96 Toyota Land Cruiser (LX 450)- Power Seats won't go in reverse


Well what I saw when I pulled my seats out of my 97 LC was that the worm gear on the bottom of the track had lost some tread.  (its plastic)  also, there is a cap that screws in to the end of that gear to hold it in place, so when you reverse the seat, the gear moves if that cap falls out of place ----small plastic cap fell out in mine.  The whole rail system is like $300 at Toyota but i found a website that sells the cap and the gears for $20.  I will try to post it tomorrow-for the time being, you can take the seat out -be sure to unplug the electronics, and use a wrench to manually move the seat back and then put it back into place

The drivers seat is stuck. It won't move forward or backward but all other seat functions work fine. hi and please help..I have the same problem with the driver seat..it will go up and down and the back...


I'm assuming this is a power seat. If so, there are separate motors that control the various functions of the seat such as forward/backard, recline, lumbar support, etc. It could be that the motor or an electrical connection to the motor for the forward/backward motion is faulty. Normally all of the motors would be on the same power circuit, so if some of the functions are working then it is probably not a blown fuse.

Just one other personal observation, I have actually seen an instance where some loose pocket change had spilled under the seat and a quarter had become wedged in the track that the seat slides in and had jammed the tracks so tightly that the seat would not move.

One thing to note is whether or not you hear anything when you try to move the seat forward/backward. If you hear a click or a buzz when you press the button then that could mean that something is physically jamming the seat tracks. If you don't hear anything when you press the button, then that more than likely means a problem with the motor or the electrical connection to the motor.
