Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?

These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

Why are you so retarded

Im not retarded im a girl n obvious if a car dont move forward or backwards kinda seems like it has something to do with transmission. You know the the mechanism by which power is transmitted from an engine to the wheels of a motor vehicle.

The car won't go forward or backward

Lift up all the wheels one by one, rotate each wheel and check which wheel resists to rotate. Disassemble the jammed wheel and carefully examine to see why is it so.
Grease the caliper pins, free up the pistons and reset the brake components.

My heated seats stoped working. Both fuses checked out ok!? Phil

I had the exact same problem.

the solution / problem was under both seats.

i looked at the wires under both seats, and they had all been severed / stretched / broken.

it seems they had gotten caught up on something, and as the seat was moved forward and backward, they just snapped.
I wired them back up, and everthing worked.

Have a look under your seat with a flashlight and examine all the wires.

let me know if this helps you out.

yes-your cv(constant velocity)shaft goes from your transmission to your wheel,when your transmission turns it turns the cv shaft which in turn spins your wheel-if the shaft breaks at the joint it will not turn your wheel

The power seat has problems moving forward and backwards

If the motors try to move then the motors are probably ok if it does not move at all, test at the switch first,make sure the fuse is good ,then pull the switch out so you can test it.power goes through the switch. use a meter or test light to see the voltage moving through the switch when you change positions.
if power is going in and not out the switch is bad.If power comes out of the switch to the motors then something is wrong under the seat.something can be caught in the seat rail.

Transmition stuck in drive

sounds like shifter cable busted... pop the hood and look at drivers side, have another person move the shifter so you can locate the cable... then find the arm coming off the transmission move it all the way one direction it will be either park or low range and that should get you moving again...
