Electrical issue with passenger seat motor in 04 pacifica

Hi. I have an 04 pacifica and love the car. I went to move the seat back to clean out the car tonight and it went back fine but now it will not tilt upward again. The bottom part of the seat does move forward but just not the back and when I press the button I hear a clicking sound. Please help.

    I have a problem with the two front seats, they don't move at all. I have checked the fuses but that's not the problem. I am now riding with a pillow on the seat because it is so far away from the steering wheel.

    I have the exact problem. It happend before and the next morning it worked. My son moved the seat back all the way back and now I cannot get it to go up. I hear the same click when you move the switch. I have not found a solution yet.

    The seat is in the full rear position. It will not move forward. When switch is moved to rear position an electronic click is heard.

I read the comments and found a YouTube that showed removing the seat back, then the guy replaced brushes in the motor. I opted to try a combination of the easiest things first. The seat back is VERY easy to remove. I used a flathead screwdriver to gently pry up the side near the top. Once it's open a bit, I slid a pair of needlenose pliers in to hold the gap, then gently pried at the top to pull out the top tab. Once it was loose, I repeated on the other side and the whole thing popped out easily. Lift to clear the tabs on the bottom and off it came. One of the contributors said his gearbox was jammed, so I used the T30 torx to loosen the gearbox, then worked the switch back and forth. Nothing happened, so I tapped the motor with the pliers like we used to do starters with a dead spot and the motor worked. Took a couple tries, but now the seat is in the correct position. The motor will need repair or replacement, but now I can do it at my leisure.

Also, check for blockages, such as coins, hair, papers. They motor is geared and there is a long worm gear. Ther are several motors and worm gears you might have to pull all nt he seat beauty covers and inpect the tracks. The clicking is a relay, it is telling you the relay is engaging but the motor will not move past the blockage and it goes into safety shutdown mode.

After driving several miles my 2004 pacifica starts to beep - 3 beeps every 30 seconds and doesn't stop. No lights are on - engine or otherwise. Once I've stopped and the engine has been turned off for...

if you drive slowly does it not start? ensure you do not having anything resting on your passenger seat. if there is a weight sensor in the seat for the seatbelt warning the car assumes sombody is in the passenger seat. or the sensor is defective to isolate this plug the passenger seatbelt into its lock and see if the problem goes away. (when driving slowly this may not start. the alarm may be set to go of after a certain speed)

note: keep all clutter away from the driver position after cornering or breaking, debris may fall into the foot well and interfere with the pedal movement. or fall onto the driver.

2005 Chrysler Pacifica passenger doors have no power

If your alarm went off, it could be that someone had tried to break into your car. They most likely may have cut some of the wires inside your door with what ever device they may have been using. Look for evidence between the bottom of the windows and doors where the problem is. If not, then it is possible that your automatic window assemblies are malfunctioning. Do you hear the motors run on the windows when you go up or down with the switch? I also have a Pacifica, 2005, however no window problems yet.

Good Luck,

Front passenger seat jammed

I would guess that something might be jammed in the tracks or it is an electrical issue. Sometimes the connections to the switches are bad, sometimes the switch itself is bad, and sometimes the moter is burned out. Listen to hear if the motor is running, if so, check the track and see if it is jammed. If you don't hear anything you have some electrical tracking to do.
