Apart from a visit to a surgeon then i would suggest that unbolt the seat runners and re-drill the fixing holes a bit further back .This i have done on some different vehicles over the last 40 yrs for tall people and also i have done it for small people with big cars whose feet dont reach the pedals and bloted blocks of wood to the pedals as well ,then i have had to change the seat belt as well as after moving everything forewards the seat belt wouldnt stretch enough

My Buick Allure 2007 has just started to turn on the seat belt light even though the only person in the vehicle is the driver and the belt is securely in place. It beeps occasionally when travelling.

Either there is weight on the other seat or it is shorting out. Try clipping all the seat belt(s) closed and if this 'fixes' the light problem try with undoing the belts one at a time and driving it that way. When the problem comes back then that will be the belt circuit that is the problem. Check for worn cables, loose connections etc.

Headlights dim after approx 5 minutes, then no further problem

Sounds like it's losing power somewhere from a loose connection. Clean and re-tighten the battery cable connections, check all the grounds you can find. Check alternator and starter connections for tightness. Get the trouble codes from the engine computer to see if they show anything helpful.
Good luck.

1996 Nissan 300zx Power Seat not working. [Top part can only go backwards, but not foward]

Change the motor of ur power seat or for cost saving, u can swap the FW & BW motors and once ur power seat is back to right position disconnect the wire to prevent the future unwanted movement.

Can somebody explain please what is " limp mode " that seems to be a common problem on older vito`s ?? is the problem specific to one particular model ?? whats the best way of fixing it apart...

Limp mode is what some vehicle computers go into when there is a problem with the engine or transmission which, if traveling at regular acceleration and speeds, may cause further damage. So, in "limp mode", the vehicle can get around, just not very fast. Engine may not go beyond a specific RPM, transmission may only use the higher gears.

We had this problem numerous time (luckily while under an extended warranty) our local dealer tried fixing it many times, they even put a heavier motor under the seat. After one repair the seat motor stopped working within 2 miles. My husband turned around stayed out in the shop and helped the mechanic discover that when the seat went back at a certain point, the wire under the drivers seat was routed so that it traveled into the seat track and back out, when it went into the track it got pinched and shorted out. (you CAN NOT tell if this has happened by looking under the seat, the wire will NOT still be trapped in the seat track or severed, at a certain point the wires traveled into and then back out of the track causing a main wire to short out (wires are harnessed under the drivers seat which control movement in both seats). The solution - a new wire harness was installed and the wires had to be routed differently to prevent this from happening. The repair only took a few minutes the wire harness had to move over about three inches and the wires got ties to hold them out of the way. That was three years ago and so far this has not been a problem again. Hope this helps, or gives you some place to start looking.

I have a 98 Volvo S90. The electric seats occasionally stop working, then start for no apparent reason. Is there a common fix? Is there a way to manually operate the seats when this happens? My wife is...

Try running the seats back and forth for their FULL travel. Electrical motors do not like sitting so much. Also get some white "lithium grease" NAPA has the best for about 8.00 with tax. Spray the grease onto the tracks. The motors can use a shot of a lighter medium. Try spraying and running the seats all the way front and all the way back 5 times. Do this once a week after that. This should help your seats to operate all the time.
