Question about 1998 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

The electrical seat adjuster was working (sometimes you just had to slide the seat with your **** a little to get it to engage) but still working none the less. Two days ago my 6 year old was pushing the buttons and moved the seat all the way to the back position and now the buttons to make the seat move stopped moving the seat...and now its stuck in the far back position. What could be the problem and where is the manual seat adjuster?

Remove passenger seat


Seats are usually straightforward to remove though sometimes trim must be removed to access the mounting bolts and usually the seat must be slid right back to access the front bolts and right forward for the rear bolts.

There is usually a few wires to disconnect...

I can't comment about whether your car uses a separate seat and chassis or whether it is integrated.

Drivers power seat does not work and stopped working with the seat too far forward


When the seat is adjusted to the stop it can destroy the fuse, though sometimes it is nothing more than the supply wiring plug being pulled from it's mating part. Most electric seats can be adjusted manually if the power fails. The vehicle owner's handbook should tell you how.

I suggest you wind it away from the stop before checking the fuses and replacing as necessary. If you find nothing or that doesn't work further investigation will be needed.

Electric passenger seat does not slide back


Three things to look at. The control switch, the motor and the fuse. Sometimes the wiring connector under the seat can become unplugged by some object under the seat watch the dome light when you operate the seat switch. If it flickers when you try to move the seat the motor is bound up. Sometimes lubricating the seat track will help. Otherwise it's the motor

How do i remove the drivers seat in my 99 chevy silverado? I need to figure out why my seat will not slide back and forth when I pull on the seat adjust lever.


Probablyt because the little wire cable that activates the release mechanisms on both sliders is broken, and therefor only allowing only one slider to release when you activate the seat adjusting lever, and leaving the other one engaged, preventing you from moving your seat. This is relatively easy to diagnose, if you know what to look for... Just try to see what all moves when you press your lever. See if there is a wire cable that is activated anywhere under your seat it should be relativley close to your lever and run across the open space to the opposite slider.

How do i remove the front seats of a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix?


On W-Body vehicles, the front seats are secured to the floorpan by two front hook attachments and two rear bolts installed to nuts welded to the floorpan.
The manually operated two-way front adjusters provides only fore and aft movement of the seat. When the seat adjuster handle located on the front seat is pulled up, the seat adjusters unlock, permitting travel of the seat. When the seat is in the desired position and the seat adjuster handle is released, the seat locks in place.
A power operated six-way seat adjuster is available. The adjusters are activated by three 12 volt, reversible, permanent magnet motors with a built-in circuit breaker. The motors are energized by a switch bolted on the seat side panel.
The three motors drive the front seat and rear vertical actuators and a horizontal actuator. When the adjusters reach the limit of travel, torque is absorbed through the rubber mounted grommets located between the motor and the support. An overload relay is provided in the circuit and will open should excessive stall be applied.
The optional 60/40 split bench front seats have seat back head restraints on the driver's and passenger's seat back. The head restraints are designed so they cannot be removed from the seat back without first inserting a small rounded tool inside the head restraint support tube to release the locking tab. The 60/40 split bench seat is equipped with a reclining mechanism on both the driver's and passenger's side. The recliner lever is located on the outboard side of the spring cushion. When the lever is pulled upward, the spring loaded dual linear reclining unit located in the cushion frame is released, allowing the seat back to be pushed rearward or allowing the spring loaded reclining unit to bring the seat back forward.
Bucket seats are equipped with manual reclining mechanisms. An optional six-way power seat adjuster is available. Some bucket seats are equipped with inertia seat back locks. This system allows the seat back to fold forward without requiring the occupant to release a locking lever or access to the rear seat area. During a sudden stop or deceleration, or if the front of the vehicle is nose down, the inertia system of the seat back lock will engage, holding the seat back in its rest position. A release lever is provided to allow manual release of the seat back lock when the vehicle is in the nose down position. The release lever is located at the lower rear outboard corner of the seat back.
Some W-Body vehicles (notably Pontiac coupes) have passenger front seats equipped with an E-Z Entry device. This is actuated, in an unoccupied seat, by completely folding the seat back forward disengaging the adjuster, and sliding the front seat forward to gain access to the rear seat area. To return the seat to its normal position, return the seat back to its rest position, and slide the entire seat rearward, engaging the adjuster.
W-Body rear seats are available in several styles including a rear seat with an integral child restraint device.

Power front seats


Before you start beating up thing's , test the electrical circuits. Do you know anything about automotive electrical systems ? How to use a volt meter an a wiring diagram to test for B+ power to the switch an testing the ground .
Does your envoy have memory seats ? Your vehicle has four or more electric motors to control back an foward , up an down etc.. the odds of more then one motor being bad at one time are highly unlikely .
Look under the seat any trash under there keeping it from moving ?
If you have memory seats there is a control module involved in making the seats work . If it has memory seats it could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
DTC B1735, B1740, B1745, B1750, B1755, B1760, B1815, or B1820
The seat adjuster switches are inputs to the driver and passenger seat modules. The seat modules supply the adjuster switch assemblies with a battery positive switch supply circuit and monitor the switch signal circuits. In an inactive state the switch signal circuits are floating and when a switch is pressed the signal circuit is closed to the switch power circuit within the adjuster switch assembly. When battery voltage is present on the switch signal circuit the seat module determines the switch status to be active.

Z3 seat rock repair


There is a ratchet system on the slide rail below the seat, sometimes the teeth on the ratchet wear out, especially when adjusted often. The hook holder that actually clamps onto those teeth, may be broken off or worn out aswell, and either of these will need replacement. Some models also come with air-suspension and a locking device, the spring on this device may be missing or worn, this will also mean a new one is neccesary for repair.

BUT... If you don't want to fork out, and are going to leave the seat in one position for a long time, may I suggest simply welding the rail to the seat, this is a permanent thing and would require you to throw away the entire sliding system, if you ever need to adjust the seat. Hope this helps you. Good luck!
