Yes most likely a motor or even a bad switch, have someone check out the switch 1st since its the cheapest part of the 2 and the repair costs are less .

    If its a manual seat then you might have striped out gear or even track teeth that allow the movement to happen, you can remove the seat and look underneath see if anything is loose or perhaps broken.

Power seat not working cadillac


Check that the seat belt mount (often solid plastic or metal that holds the button side of the belt in place next to the center console) is not pinching and preventing the seat from moving forward and back. This happens on many Fords, so it might happen on some GM's too.
If you can hold the buckle mount out of the way while someone else moves the seat backward (or forward), it usually starts working OK again until someone moves the seat to the max forward or max backward position and it gets stuck again

How to remove drivers side seat 1999 chevy malibu


Usually configuration on any seat. Slide seat all the way back and take out 2 front bolts. Sometimes the bolts are covered with a plastic cover that needs to be removed. Slide seat all the way forward the remove the 2 back bolts. Then I usually tilt the seat backwards and unhook any wires underneath. Carefully lift seat out of the vehicle being careful not to scratch the car.

1999 Chevy 1500 with power seats rocks forward or backward on breaking and acceleration.


You said "rocks forward and backwards not sliding.
upon that knowledge I would check the seat rails and see if they are still connected to floor of your truck. Sound as either the rail has disconnected at front or rear mount.
A simple fix is to replace bolt with new and installing an oversize washer or plate to underside of truck when installing replacement bolt

Maybe you problem is with the switch, or check if power seat circuit has the regular fuse or rather one of those thermal ones.

The fuse panel is located on the left hand side of the instrument panel facing the drivers side door.

I have a 1998 clk230 .The drivers seat control button will only move seat forward when presed for backward.consequently the only way to get the seat to go backward is to press the memory button .


You may need to run the seat all the way forward then all the way backwards in order to resyncronize the seat. If that doesn't fix the problem then most likely the seat switch is faulty. I've seen this problem several times with the clk and the e-class.

The reason is that your sliding grips have been slipped and therefore jammed at one position.

Remove the seat open it's sliding grips and replace it.
