I got the same problem whit the Passenger Seat. After perform a Diagnosis to the Electrical system and confirm every thing was right (fuses and voltage on the harness going to the seat) , I had decided to remove the Seat, then disassemble the side panel where the Activation switch is located and I have found the problem was the button was worn.
The easiest solution could be replace the switch , in my case I was able to repair the button by opening it putting some Tin solder on one of the internal traces and replacing one damaged micro spring.
I would recommend to replace the switch.

My 01 passat glx has an issue with the drivers side seat everything works except the forward and backward power movement. I hear it click when I push the switch but it won't move any ideas?


The motor located under the seat could be seized. Make sure you have voltage at the motor. Also check that nothing is jammed or restricting movement.

You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

Electric passenger seat does not slide back


Three things to look at. The control switch, the motor and the fuse. Sometimes the wiring connector under the seat can become unplugged by some object under the seat watch the dome light when you operate the seat switch. If it flickers when you try to move the seat the motor is bound up. Sometimes lubricating the seat track will help. Otherwise it's the motor

Passenger power seat on my 2002 CLK will move forward only and not backwards, how do I get it to work ?


Wiggle the switch that controls the problem movement, if the seats moves or jitters a little the switch is defective and will solve the problem. If nothing happens when you do this simple test then go under the seat and probe the large wiring connector the power seat transmission, when you move the switch to rear seat travel position and see if any of the wires light up, if it does show voltage when the switch is toggled then the seat transmission may be at fault. I think you have a switch problem based on my expereinces but do the testing because the part is not cheap.

Power seat problems driver side will not move


Seat motor,connector,wiring,fuse and position switch are the only item in the picture here,

I will start with checking the motor connector (NOT AIR BAG) first.

Fuse second and work you way to the switch,

If you are handy you can apply 12V power to the seat and see does it move.

A dirty seat track rail can also cause the fuse to blow,

I have the same problem. Seat and steering column just stopped working. Passenger side normal. No fuse for these components. With so many postings witht he same problem there has to be a defective or worn out source. Please post if you find a solution!
