1997 Pathfinder driver's side manual seat fix

Somehow, the Manual driver's seat has become locked in it's most rear postion. Upon closer inspection, I can't see any cause for it not to be able to slide freely on the track. no debris in its path, nor is the seat broken. The left side disnegages totally, which alllows the seat to inch fwd several inches, but the right side dosen't move at all and thus the seat remains locked in its rear most track. my legs are long, but this is getting uncomfortable! thanks.

    My Pathfinder had the same problem with the seat, after I got it back from my son who borrowed it while his car was being repaired. I'm tall enough to put up with it but my wife can't drive the vehicle. Anyway, the Pathfinder was rear-ended while it was parked on the street. When I got it back from the body shop, the problem was gone--I could move the seat. Then, about two weeks later, it froze in place again.

My son has an xtera with the same problem. I took the seat off and found change (quarter, penny) stuck in the slide.

1997 k2500 front seat wont stay up

Not a description that gives me a mental image of what isn't happening. Seat (mechanical) mechanisms are generally reliable and give little bother other than return springs which become weak, detached or break. Often such a fault only becomes obvious when the seat is removed for closer inspection.

Seats with pneumatic, hydraulic or electrical functions have a different set of problems, often rooted in lack of use, damp, dusty and dirty operating environment or advancing age

Sometimes the alarm box is under the dash on the drivers side. Did you try using the key to lock and unlock the driver side door? Some vehicles this will deactivate the alarm.

Only the left side of the drivers side seat moves when you try to adjust the seat forward or backward

You don't idicate whether it's a power or manual seat. Assuming it's a manual seat there is a link between the rails under the seat. It can become disconnected preventing the right rail lock from unlocking.

The battery is flat on my nissan pathfinder the key fob will not unlock the door there is no mechanical lock how can I get in?

I had a similar problem. I noticed one of my door handles (passenger side) had a little key engraved on it with a small slot under it. I inserted my key into that slot to pry the cover out. Underneath was a hidden keyhole which fit the pathfinder key perfectly and opened the passenger door. I could not find this solution in the manual - so simple - yet stressful.

What size fuze for the radio in 2005 cadillac cts

The driver's side rear fuse block is located under the rear seat on the driver's side of the vehicle. The rear seat cushion must be removed to access the rear fuse block. See "Removing the Rear Seat Cushion" listed previously.

To access the fuse block, push in the two tabs located at each end of the fuse block cover. Then lift the cover off...



From owners manual.

1997 Toyota Corolla Trunk Release not working...

The trunk release cable runs along the inside edge of the car, under the carpet, on the driver side. It then snakes up over the metal under the rear seat, and then into the trunk, running along the trunk hinge/arm, driver's side. You will need to remove the rear seat bottonm and the seat back, and pull the carpet back on the driver's side to see the cable... More below:
-------> Before you do all of that, unbolt the latch handle and see if the plastic tab on the latch that holds the cable is broken; the cable release wires rarely fail, I replace handle assemblies regularly, never a cable. Maybe you just need a handle assby. Feel free to comment back if you need more assistance; Thanks for choosing FixYa.
