Question about 2005 Kia Sorento

Open Question

My 2005 Kia Sorrento driver's side power seat will not move forward when pushing the switch to the forward position. All other functions work: it moves the seat back, up down, and the other switch moves the upper portion of the seat back and forth

SOURCE: The power seat switch is bad (second one) I paid 2

I am a firm believer in wrecking yard parts. You know its the switch and you should
be able to get one for 20 bucks or 50 bucks for the entire seat as the
wrecking yard may not want to sell just the switch.
But before you buy a usedseat have you checked the fuse? If the fuse is good then back to the switch. I have taking apart thewindowbutton switches and the contactsget corroded and won't operate the windows. It is a bit tricky but you should be able to do the same thing with the switch on the seat. Just lightly sand where the contact points meet and put it back together. If that doesn't work and it is not thefuse then buy the used seat and take the switch form it or better yet, if the seat colormatches yours then replace the whole new seat. Hope this helps, Raz

SOURCE: WHAT OIL FOR 2005 KIA SORRENTO..PLEASE!

In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.

global1207_0.gif

You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.

SOURCE: 2005 kia sorrento how to take out spare tire

Lift the panel in the trunk, there should be a rod to crank your spare tire down. You have an opening on the left bottom of the back hatch. Insert the rod in this opening and use the lug wrench for your jack. Just crank this counter clock wise and the tire should begin to come down. Once it is all the way down, you have to take the center piece and turn it sideways in order to get the tire off.

So here is a diagram of the seat circuitry for your car. Since every other function works except the forward/backward slide function, that leaves basically the forward/backward slide motor, the seat switch, and/or the wiring. If you can verify that the wiring under the seat is in good condition without obstructions, chaffed wires, and/or wires pulled too tight, then it's safe to say it's down to just the motor and/or the switch. Sometimes if the passengers front seat has the same switch, you can plug it in to the drivers' side connector and see what works and what doesn't. If the seat works fine with the other switch, then that's all it needs, if not then it will need a motor. If the other seat doesn't have a switch then you can find them at wrecking yards, or just supply power and ground to the motor in question to see if it works. If it does, then you know you kneed a switch and if not then a motor.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~

Automatic driver seat broken, how to fix/cost


The back and foward movement uses the same motor. So if it moves one way but not the other it's most likely the switch. Try to blow it out or clean it out. If pop or somthing spilled on it you will prob. need to pull switch out and take it apart to clean contacks inside.

2002 camry Driver's side power seat all the way forward and won't move backwards. Other power seat functions working fine. Tried moving it with engine off and engine on. Is there a manual release?


I found this post area while looking for a way to fix my stuck 2001 Camry LE drivers seat. Sure enough, while engaging the seat motor (it could be heard making an initial clikc), I hit the front rails a coupel time prettysolidly with a rubber mallet. That fixed it!

Thanks to all for providing a quick fand easy way to get the seat moving again!

The driver side power seat is not working in my 2005 lincoln town car, how do i fix it?


might be as simple as replacing the fuse #601 in the BJB (battery junction box) under the hood

this single fuse controls power to ALL the functions of the seat, up/down, forward/aft, tilt and back rest

additionally, there is only one ground!

if ANY of these work then the fuse and/or ground is not the concern

furthermore, since the seat actually contains 4 separate motors it is quite unlikely all 4 failed

so if the seat will not function in any/all positions then you are most likely dealing with a switch problem!

replace the switch and let me know your results

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.

Front driver seat adjustments. Push control forward seat goes back; push control back seat moves forward. Easy exit feature moves seat forward


probably the switch is installed backward in its cover so remove the switch and rotate it and put it back
