Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

Power driver seat will not adjust forward or back.

The power drivers seat on my 96 Grand Marquis LS will not move forward or back when it is hot out. Even when it works, it moves very slowly. Can anyone suggest a fix? Thanks

My intuition tells me that the 6 way power seat track forward / reverse motor is bad. Sometimes you can replace just the one motor but most often a whole new power seat track is the only way to repair. It is not too bad to replace but the seat will have to be removed from the car and placed upside down to access the track assy. There are 2 bolts in the front of the seat and 2 bolts in the back of the seat that hold it down to the floorboard. Once it is loose you can rock the seat backwards to access and unplug the electrical connectors.

    Mine is same problem left side of drivers seat will move front/back but not right side. The place I was took the seat out & they say something is stripped inside not allowing it to move. They said if I take it to dealership they will try to replace entire seat. What can I replace to fix this?

Not sure if you can. Was the motor not operating? Shoot 12 volts to it through jumper wires, see if that helps.

My brother wrecked his 96 grand marquis ls and I was wondering if I could use his fob transmitter on my 96 grand marquis ls can this work?


You could try it, but I'm going to about 99.5% guaruntee it won't work, for programming reasons. HOWEVER, if you replace the computer/receiver unit out of your brother's Grand Marquis LS, it ought to work very well. Hope it works well!

My power driver seat will not move foward but it will go backward


The seat has a transmission to move the seat up, down, foward , & back. Screw jacks adjust the seat up & down. Cables move the seat forward & back. The cable it seems had to break or the end of the cable has rounded out. Possibly the cable rounded out the seat it rides in the transimission housing too. You will need to remove the seat to find out
