Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis

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?

Controls on driver's side Power seats stopped working. Can not adjust seat at all.


The motors responsible for moving the seats are not being properly powered. The issue could be due to blown fuse, bad relay, bad connections, bad switches, ad infinitum. In short, any part in between the power source (battery) and the motor is suspect.

Get a hold of the wiring schematic for your car, study it, and get to work.

On a 96 grand marquis ,where is the octane adjusting bar - dtc p1390


Look under the hood on the driver\'s side, just in front of the power steering reservoir. You should see a small pigtail coming out of the wiring harness that looks like this.

Remove the shunt connector from the wire. This is an octane adjusting plug that will retard the timing by 3 degrees and may solve your problem.

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
