Either the seat switch is bad or the cable that drives the seat adjuster up and down is broken. It will be easier to check the switch with an OHM meter than taking the seat out I know

There are 3 motors associated with the power seat. 1 to raise and lower the seat, 1 to move it back and forth, and 1 to change the tilt or recline of the seat. Most likely the motor to raise and lower the seat is bad. I would also check the switch to see if power is getting to the seat motor for that.

The most common problem is that some of the teeth have broken off of a small gear in the motor. I have a video where I demonstrate one of the many ways to fix this. Here is the link to my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQLVvUf-9rs

Power seat motor


Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.

The driver side power seat button moves forward and backward and reclines, but wont move up or down, the seat is stuck all the way down so i cant get to the wrom gear underneath, how do i go about raising...


I am working on a replacement motor that will come with a new gear/shaft on it. I have one of my setups in the car right now and have the parts for another one ordered. I hope to make a video of the repair in a couple weeks when the parts show up. Still uses plastic gears, but these are larger, more durable gears and the swap is fairly straight forward with just a few modifications.

2002 buick park avenue power drivers seat won't go up or down


The most common problem is the gear breaking under the seat. There is one motor to make the front go up and down and one motor to make the back go up and down. The front up/down motor is the easier one to replace. I have a video of one way to fix the up/down motors. I demo the back motor.

My front seat in my 1998 buick park avenue will not move forward nor back, is there a relay for this?


Hi! If it has switch control, then most likely it has a Fuse or Relay... emergency fuses is located by the driver seat left foot,
under the dashboard. The Controler fuses or relay is most likely located under the hood by the driver side or near by the car battery... You may also want to check the motor relay or the motor it self, sometimes this will cuase the problem that the motor is no longer generating power. Check the Manual for fuses guide or fuses ampers. best of luck.

Glad to help.
Ginskie.

I just purchased a 2007 jeep liberty sport


I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty and the smae lever that tilts the seat also moves it forward and back. Press forward or back on the switch. Also check for blown fuse or a loose wiring connector under the drivers seat. Good luck, Techjoel
