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

The front passenger seatbelt is twisted and won' t retract on my 2004 Sienna minivan. How can I fix it myself?

OK - So I have a 2004 Sienna and the drivers seat had a twisted seat belt. To make matters worse it was fully extended and I could not straighten it. Here are the steps I took to get it corrected.

I took off the handle to the sliding door. There are 2 small panels on the handle that can gently be removed with a flat head screwdriver. Once exposed you will see 2 torx bolts. If you have that tool, great. If not you can use a small flat head to unscrew the bolts. This removes the handle

Next use your flat head screwdriver to 'pop' off the bottom center section of plastic (the piece that has the auto door button). The side closest to the sliding door will have a plastic 'snap' that will come out and that will allow enough room to get to the other plastic snap...these come out easily but be careful they don't drop to the bottom. Once unsnapped you will have access to the top plastic center section (where the seat belt is located)

There is another plastic 'snap' close to the sliding door. Unfastening this side will allow enough space for you to access the drivers side and use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt holding that in place. Once out I was able to get both hands on the seat belt & it was easily corrected.

I adjusted the slide to its highest position since that is the way the passenger side is and we have never had an issue with that side.

Put all pieces back in reverse order & you are done. Took about 15 minutes.

Hope this helps.

Fuse. Check your fuse under the dash and look for "power seat" fuse. Replace it with the same number. Do not replace with bigger numbers or you might torch the wiring and maybe the car.

Electric seats won't move - Silverado 1500

depending on what year truck it is, there is a 40-60amp maxi fuse in the underhood fuse block that can also blow, the harnesses get stuck on the backside of the seat tracks and blow the underhood fuses.

Why can't anyone fix the SRS?

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Hello there i have a 2000 chevy blazer has done faily well for having 150,000 miles on it, the problem im having is the passenger seat belt is stuck in retract any quick fixes?

The passenger seat belt wont come out of the B-pillar?? You will have to remove the B-pillar cover to REPLACE the retractor. It is not recomended to attempt a repair on a seat belt(unless it is just twisted and jammed) You may have to cut the belt if it is too tight to gain access.

its the dreaded seat rock syndrome, plenty of fixes on the forums, basically you have to replace spacers in set drive mechanism. I did with the help of a friend after ordring bushes and it was quite easy.
