Question about 2004 Chrysler 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.
Dont you people have a yearly vehicle inspection,where thing like the seats and mirrors window winders seat belts and everything else from the rear number plate light to the front bumper is checked ??clicking noise is a spindle over riding on a gearwheel ,try looking for a big fuse under engine compartment near the battery normally

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.
