    we have the same problem with our 96 lincoln town car. the driver's seat will go up or down and will tilt but will not go forward or backwards. we took it to a body shop guy and he couldn't figure it out either. said he tested everything and all of it is getting power and he checked to see if anything was blocking it or jamming it but didn't find anything

What year is you car? Does the other controls work for the seat? and just to clarify the seat won't go forward of back?


Cheers

SOURCE: power driver's seat

Power seat movement is controlled by numerous small motors underneath the seat.

Front and back movement is often actuated through a motor on one side that connect to a rod (with some type of gear on the end of it) that runs to the other side. This rod can get out of position, or possibly something can go wrong in the gear.

You'll likely have to remove the seat to diagnose the problem.

It isn't wired wrong. Mine does the exact same thing, but it didn't used to be backwards and the wiring has never been changed.

MY DRIVERS SIDE POWER SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD BUT ALL OTHER PARTS OF THE SEAT WORK FINE I CAN HEAR SOMETHING CLICKING WHEN I TRY TO MOVE THE SEAT BUT THE SEAT WONT GO BACK OR FORWARD


Check under the seat for broken wires. Forward and backwards is the function most used and causes the wires to bend back and forth. you may need to remove the seat for inspection or you may be lucky and see the problem just by raising the seat as high as it will go.

Power seat not working cadillac


Check that the seat belt mount (often solid plastic or metal that holds the button side of the belt in place next to the center console) is not pinching and preventing the seat from moving forward and back. This happens on many Fords, so it might happen on some GM's too.
If you can hold the buckle mount out of the way while someone else moves the seat backward (or forward), it usually starts working OK again until someone moves the seat to the max forward or max backward position and it gets stuck again

What could cause my drivers side power seat to stop moving forward and backward?


sounds like you might have a switch problem if the memory for seat position works ok. If you have a multimeter that checks for continuity then you could start there at the switch but you would also need a wiring diagram for the seats

First and simplest thing is to check fuses for power seat; there's 1 in the engine compartment and 2 (forward/backward and tilt) in the interior, passenger side fuse box. Check your Owners manual for location.

Power driver's seat only travels forward and backward on one side of seat. Other side works fine. Seat does travel up and down properly.


Power seat movement is controlled by numerous small motors underneath the seat.

Front and back movement is often actuated through a motor on one side that connect to a rod (with some type of gear on the end of it) that runs to the other side. This rod can get out of position, or possibly something can go wrong in the gear.

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.
