This is due to a bad switch or seatmotor, the seat uses diffrent motors to control the seat so seat can still tilt but not move back or forward, this best way to know which ic the problem is with a testlight, hold the switch to move forward or back and test for power and a ground to that motor, if theres power and ground then motor is bad, if theres no power then switch is bad, hope this helps.

Normal 0 Might be a bad switch, motor or something else?
We take the seat off the car, power up it with a battery charger and find the problem.

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.

How do I remove the drivers seat in a 2000 Cadilac ?


I'm not positive about the DeVille, but I've removed seats from lots of other vehicles, and some of that may translate over here.

There should be four bolts (studs, really) going down through the floor from the seat mount frame. You should be able to find the four nuts under the vehicle's floor pan, after you jack up the driver's side and put jack stands under it (if it falls, it WILL crush you to death). Loosen those four nuts but don't remove them.

Now back inside, feel underneath the seat - find all the electrical connectors. Unplug them ALL. Doublecheck, triplecheck, make sure you get them ALL.

NOW you can remove the four nuts underneath the vehicle, tip the seat rearward to verify that you got ALL the electrical connectors, and remove it. It's HEAVY.

1998 Volve S70. The abs light and the tracs off light stay on all the time. any idea why? the drivers seat automatic button will move the seat backward but not forward. All the memory buttons work and it...


On ABS light most common problem is ABS control module , they failing left and right.
As for the seat adjustment , sound like you need a new seat switch.
