Replacement parts and labor could run $200 + from the dealer.. Yes, a replacement switch can be obtained from a salvage yard, BUT NOT from an auto parts store. It is not difficult to remove old switch and replace

most likely the switch is bad if you disconnect the plug to the forward backwards motor the power should swap back and forth depending on which way thw switch is pushed if it doesnt switch is bad let me know how you make out

SOURCE: Drivers electic seat will not adjust

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

SOURCE: bmw z3 passenger seat goes forward backwards but

It can also be theseat motor since there is seperate motors for up/down & forward/backwards. You can test the switch to see if you are getting power to the connector on the motor by using a multimeter.

If there is power to the motor, I would remove the motor and give it a tap on the ground. Alot of the time the motor is fine, and the tap will free it up again. If it doesn't work you may be up for a new seat motor. Giving mine a tap solved the issue with mine.

Why does driver side power seat suddenly just move back and forth for only about a 1/4 of an inch?


These devices use motors with worm gears to provide the smooth operation and torque necessary to move the seat. The most common problem, other than the motors themselves failing (and since your does move somewhat, the motor is probably OK), the next biggest issue is something gets caught in the gear drive. Get a good look under the seat and see if there isn't something jamming the forward-backward motion of the seat.

If the car won't move but you can hear the transmission shift gears, something has broken where the drive axle shafts connect to the transmission.

How do you get to take out or lay down the back seats of a chryler voyager 2004


Look under the front edge of each seat...there is an adjustment bar to move forward and backward...and there is a similiar release lever that when tilted properly each seat is removable...snapping back into place after removal can be trickier. Hope this helps:)

Power seat on driver side only goes forward and back . Tilt and up and down feature has stopped working already checked fuses and rattled the switch around encase it was jammed. No luck....any ideas


The power switch for your seat is a six way switch . It only has one power lead going into it . So , if forward and backward work then you have power to the switch . Would you need to do is try the up and down control while listening closely . If you hear a clicking noise but nothing else when you energize the switch you probably have a bad vertical control motor . If you hear a motor running right after the clicking noise and you probably have a bad control cable which goes between the motor and the vertical gear . If you don't hear anything at all when you activate the switch up and down , I would suspect a bad switch .

My electric driver seat wont go forward or backwards, just up and down


A lot of the time the connection to the drive motor is discooected due to some trash that get caught during moving the seat. Check to make sure the connection is solid.

If so use a volt meter to test if current is getting to the drive motor when the switch is pressed if not bad switch if yes bad motor

Driver side power seat front to back motor stuck forward


Take apart the drive box in front of seat track, on both sides with an allen wrench. You can then push the seat to get at the bolts to remove it. My trolley drive motor had bad brushes. I am now looking to replace the motor, if I can find the replacement.
