    Electric

  • reuben_stude May 17, 2011

    I have done a lot of troubleshooting and ill tell you that there is power to the switch when I put the test light to it

  • reuben_stude May 17, 2011

    This is what I've done so far...

    I purchase a seat with the tracks and the motor from a junk yard because I figured my drivers seat motor was gone but that's when I discovered it has three different motors. so I installed the motors and they were working before I left the salvage yard but they do the same exact thing only 6 since out of the 8 functions are working. So I figured the switch was bad so I installed that as well and nothing changed so I took the switch apart and grabbed my test light and I began to press the switches for the various functions and I discovered that all of the switches are getting power but only the recline switch is not putting out so now I think its maybe the module under my seat

    have you taken the switch off and checked the copper contact

  • reuben_stude May 18, 2011

    Yes they are all intact and have no debris restricting them whatsoever

  • reuben_stude May 18, 2011

    I found out the problem the reclined switch is putting out power I didn't realize that there is a motor for the recliner in the back part of the seat. I unplugged the wire going to the seat motor and the harness is getting power so it is a fact that the recliner motor in the seat is bad. How can I remove the seat motor without destroying the leather seat

Memory seat does not fully recline


Sounds like you lost basic settings for the seat. Recline the seat all the way forward and all the way back a couple of times. That should reset the settings and work properly

Back tilt is a manual round knob on drivers seat it just turns


It sounds like the inside of the recliner knob is stripped out. If you go to your local GM dealership and give them your VIN number they can order you a new one. Here is the removal and installation directions.
Driver or Passenger Seat Recliner Handle Replacement Removal Procedure
  1. Use a flat-bladed tool to remove the plastic center cap from the center of the recliner handle.

Installation Procedure
  1. Install the recliner handle on the recliner shaft.

  2. Push the recliner handle firmly onto the recliner shaft until fully seated.

I wouldn't ruin anything by trying things yourself

I would have a dealer check it out

The dealer I used in the past, has a seat specialist come
in on Wed only, around 5:30 after the service bays close
& one service writer hangs out until that person fixes a

Front seats recliners won't "click" in the upright position.


personally i would pull the seats and weld them into a position that is comfortable both sides of the seat should be welded. a small mig welder would take care of this issue nicely and permanently ! .. jay Florida

Recliner?


usually not. seat is electric and adjusts to extent allowed by that. Passenger seat has a back release on it though.

Veracruz driver seat


Hi tlocker,

Sorry to tell you, but if we're talking about an electrically operated seat, there's no short cut....The seat will have to be removed and then you'll have to sort out why the motor reversal does not work....Could be a bad connection..... If it's a manual operation then you'll have to find out where its stuck....

Best regards Johngee10

Front seat stays in the reclined postion..


The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.
