Had exactly the same problem. Hacked a solution, disconnected the flexible cable from the motor. Problem was the nylon drive gear was stripped. Just twisted the cable by hand to desired position ( wife's car) to fit her. Left cable detached and accessible under the seat if needed again. Big tussel getting the seat removed. GM has a very large strange torx screw holding the seat belt mount which has to be removed. Other strangeness the front 2 seat mount bolts were metric. The rear 2 were US SAE standard. Other strangness one bolt was never installed at factory ?? Was probably close to lunch time at the seat place. If you want to repair fully you should get a used ? motor as I think the wholw motor housing was rather crimped and built into th seat frame. That's probably why I did the "manual hack" works well for a year now. Now window motors are another sad story.
(inner door pannel is welded in place) need to cut for access - Dealer quited $500 - window is rather still closed.
Good Luck

this is common, if the seats move an any direction then its not a fuse, these dont use fuses rather a circuit breaker that resets itself and never seen one go bad, sorry for the bad news but it sounds like the lay down part is a motor or cable from motor and the lumber is a bad pump or connection under the seat. most of these that i work on have bad lumber pump motors and that are inside seat some older ones are under the seat, the way to repair is to replace the track, new or used, but if pump is inside the seat then thats another story, the covering needs to be removed. good day.

Check the fuse and circuit breaker "A". I have the same problem except I am missing the circuit breaker. There was a circuit breaker that was jury rigged with some wires that worked for awhile until the wires broke.

Driver side power seat won't move


well, check all your fuses and circuit breakers,next would be to check the connection at the swith, cad use a test light and also check for power and a good ground at the motors,it unlikely that all postions would stop at once and it be a motor,if they all stopped then its gottta be a fuse or switch or wiring.

Power seats wont work on my 2005 pacifca checked fuses and they are good both just stopped working at the same time what can I do


There should be a Circuit Breaker located within the Wiring Harness under the Driver Seat. Check this breaker and also the Ground.
There "maybe" also a Relay located between the switch and the motor. Check for voltage to this relay, and also this Ground.
With the Engine OFF: Try to move the seats in all directions. If the motor clicks, and the seat doesn't move: the Motor assembly must be replaced.

Electric window 1991 F150 ...351


If the lock is trying to move, like you hear it but nothing really happens, replace the door lock actuator. i believe the windows are on the same fuse. Try removing the interior door trim and tap on the window motor lightly with a small hammer while holding the switch. If the window moves, replace the motor. If not, check for power and ground at the connector. If you have power and ground (which switch when going up then down) then replace the motor. If you dont, repair the circuit.

Power seat problems driver side will not move


Seat motor,connector,wiring,fuse and position switch are the only item in the picture here,

I will start with checking the motor connector (NOT AIR BAG) first.

Fuse second and work you way to the switch,

If you are handy you can apply 12V power to the seat and see does it move.

A dirty seat track rail can also cause the fuse to blow,

Power seat not working

Circuit Protection
Power is supplied to the seat motors through the 30A POWER WINDOW fuse. The fuse is located in the LH engine compartment fuse junction panel and is hot at all times. The circuit breaker is behind the interior fuse junction panel and prevents current overload and component damage.
