Question about 1999 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Power Drivers seat stuck in partial recline

After reclining at a rest stop, seat would not return to full up right position and would begin to twist or rack to the console side almost up in position.
Question : Are there two motors that may be out of sync at the stops? I am afraid of doing much as I don't want to end up with a partially or full reclined back as I need to drive this car everyday. Any help short of (costly)replacement?

If it's anything like seats in GM's there is only one motor for each "function". They use a small gear box, with shafts and gears to distribute the movement to both sides of the seat. You will see a few motors under the seat also. Depending on how they made them, the recline motor may be under there too.

The cost will vary, and that's only IF a replacement part is available. Sometimes you have to get awhole new seat (some leather Caddy seats are close to $2500 EACH - ouch). You can always scour ebay (just do a search for "concorde seat" - theres actually a guy selling the entire lower rail assembly as i'm writing this)

Some seats have a factory unzippable cover. This may or may not allow you access to poke around in there.

I would check for any obstruction caught up in the pivot of the seat or near the area where the shafts / gears meet the tilt mechanism. It could be anything really, but coins tend to be the majority of the culprits! I've found that trying to lay on your head to find them is a pain, and you always miss something. It's easier to unplug the power to the seat, take out the 4 bolts, and turn the seat upside down in the driveway and shake out whatever is caught up in it.

Passenger side seat stuck in recline 1996 328i bmw


This is either an electrical problem or the infamous twisted seat problem caused by the cables between the motors and reclining gear units of the power seat.
Check the connector under the front of the seat and make sure it has not been disconnected
listen to determine whether the motor at the front of the seat are turning when you try to move the seat (they are fairly quiet)
If the motor spins, then search internet for "bmw twisted seat"
good luck

Back tilt is a manual round knob on drivers seat it just turns


It sounds like the inside of the recliner knob is stripped out. If you go to your local GM dealership and give them your VIN number they can order you a new one. Here is the removal and installation directions.
Driver or Passenger Seat Recliner Handle Replacement Removal Procedure
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool to remove the plastic center cap from the center of the recliner handle.

  2. Pull the recliner handle off the shaft.
Installation Procedure
  1. Install the recliner handle on the recliner shaft.

  2. Push the recliner handle firmly onto the recliner shaft until fully seated.
  3. Install the plastic center cap into the center of the recliner handle.

Drivers seat in full recline position and will not


I would first check the fuse panel & see if fuse is burned out. The next thing I would check is the switch, wiggle it sideways, etc to see if the contacts are dirty. Last, these motors sometimes go bad, as mine did, so I got another seat for $50 at the wrecking yard & just exchanged it. There is also a slight possibility that the wire harness came unplugged under the seat or at the switch, but that is pretty remote. Rick

Passenger seat back will not move either direction


Motor on the seat may have gone out, contacts in switch got dirty or worn, or assembly reached limit and stuck. Try sitting in it pushing back hard and adjust. If not youll need to replace switch,b take seat apart to fix or replace.

Front seat stays in the reclined postion..


The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.
