Hello. The mechanism that moves the seat to different positions operates off of a small motor. You may be able to lubricate the track with an aerosol can of WD-40 [get the one that has the tiny application tube included]. You may ultimately have to replace the motor or the entire assembly which includes both the motor and the track. J.

Get the seat out and remove the control unit then test its outputs to see if power is getting to both motors, if its not then check the wiring to the motor is OK.
Good power and good wiring = bad motor.
If all the motor and control unit checked OK then, This sounds like either a cable or gear in the front to back/back to front seat mechanism that is driven by the motor is defective. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    The electric motor in
    question is operated by the last switch on the side of the drivers seat (as you
    would look at it from outside the driver door, looking from front to back or
    left to right). There are three switches total. The last switch raises and
    lowers the back of the drivers seat to tilt it either forwards or backwards.The
    seat is stuck in the “tilted forward” position, with the back of the seat up as
    high as it will go.



    REMOVAL:


    1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
    cable.



    2. Remove the two bolts that secure the front of
    the seat frame to the floor panel.



    3.Remove
    the two nuts that secure the rear of the seat frame to the studs on the floor
    panel.



    4.Remove the two bolts
    that secure the center seat to the driver side seat frame brackets.



    5.Unplug the power seat
    feed wire harness connector.



    6.Remove
    the driver side seat and adjuster assembly from the vehicle.



    7.Remove
    the four screws that secure the seat adjuster and motors assembly to the seat
    cushion frame and remove the adjuster and motors assembly from the seat.

Passenger seat will not slide forward


there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

2004 honda pilot drivers power seat not working


First and simplest thing is to check fuses for power seat; there's 1 in the engine compartment and 2 (forward/backward and tilt) in the interior, passenger side fuse box. Check your Owners manual for location.

The back of the seat of my 2003 G35 moves forward but not backwards. All the other buttons work...I'm able to raise/lower, tilt and move the entire seat back and forth. Any suggestions?


this is not uncommon and the test is very simple. The seat motor often fails in this vehicle and the simplest test is this: (1)raise the front of the seat as much as possible, (2)tap on the motor housing while holding the seat slide button (seat motor you need is the one easiest to reach in the front/bottom of the seat). If this resolves your problem what you need is a seat motor. Unfortunately these are often only available with a complete seat base system, so if this is the resolution you may want to search salvage yards, this piece can be easily replaced by itself.

Driver's seat unable to move forward or backward


There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

Power seat switch


It is most definitely the seat slide motor. Most infiniti drivers seats have three different motors. I30, I35's and QX4's all had problems with the seat slide motors. You can tap on the slide motor which is under the front of the seat and it will probably work for a little while, but it WILL stop working completely. There was actually a Technical Service Bulletin regarding this issue because there were so many vehicles that had this problem. I hate to see that guy waste money trying to get a circuit board rebuilt that absolutely will not solve the problem.
