SOURCE: My Toyota Camry passanger power seat is adjustable

There are numerous small motors in the seat mechanism that control the seat movement, and these motors can either go bad or have connection problems.

If you can isolate the problem to which of these motors is the culprit, you can likely get another motor at a salvage yard. They are probably also available from Toyota, but you might get sticker shock when they quote the price.

A motor in the power seat of a 93 Lexus LS 400 that I owned went out, and Lexus was asking $300.00 for a replacement. I purchased an entire seat from a salvage yard for $75.00 and got far more motors than I needed.

Driver power seat


The automatic driver's seat may have been programed not to move forward when the key is in and go back when it's taken out. Or are you saying it doesn't move forward, back and not at all from the control on door panel?

I have a 2005 mercury montaineer. The drivers seat which is a power seat, will not go back all the way. It makes it half way and then nothing. Please help!!!


Most Ford products are designed so the seat belt latch by the center console moves with the seat. The bottom of the latch rides on the seat rail, and with time sometimes it builds up a little play on the rail. As the seat moves forward or back, the seat belt guide often tilts forward or back, just a bit, on the rail, and gets stuck. So you can move forward or back just a bit, but then it jams and you can hear the motor, but can go no further.

The long term fix is to remove the seat, disassemble the seat belt guide and rail, and usually replace some parts.

But the short term solution is often to simply hold on to the seat belt latch and rock it forward and away from the seat as you try to go forward or back. Or, sometimes it works best to rock it backwards and away from the seat as you try to move forward or back. It all depends on which way it is binding.

There's no guarantee that it won't jam again if you move it all the way back or forward, but once you find the right position to hold the seat latch in while moving the seat, you should be able to re-adjust it where you need it to be.

Everything works on the power seats except unable to move seats forward and backward


There are usually 3 motors for power seats, 1 to tilt the seat, 1 to raise and lower the seat, and 1 to move the seat back and forth. I would think that motor is bad. Check for any obstuctions to the seat track.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.


My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.
