maybe you got pennies money stuck in the track if not you got 1 motor for that the motor goes in a assembly in there you have 2 cable a left and a right lock under the seat you probably got the right cale disconnect sometime there stuff that push under the seat and push that cable off if its that just push the cable back in let me know and please if you can take the time to rate this thank you pierre

SOURCE: heated seats
Likely, the heating element in the seat has failed. The reason is simply that the drivers seat is in use more than any other seat in the vehicle. You can check continuity of the element with an ohmeter across the seat side of the heater connector. Check for power at the harness side with a volt meter. If there is power but no continuity, heater element has failed. Personally, I'd probably just live with it but you can either attempt to install a new heater element or if you can find a similar seat in a salvage yard, just buy it and put it in! (whole seat probably costs less than the element!!!

Here's a diagnostic procedure for the power seats: http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/tech/service/850/PowerSeats.pdf
And here's a load of wiring diagram including power seats: http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/tech/service/850/SystemWiringDiagrams.pdf
The above links are for '95 models, but as far as I know they're identical.
Get the multimeter out and start checking voltages :)
Good luck mate!

This is probably a faulty Throttle Position Sensor - I had exactly the same problem.
Vovlo specialist hooked my ODBII to a code reader.
Best to get the throttle body cleaned at the same time they replace the TPS
All in £125 plus the dreaded VAT.
Hope this helps

There is a plastic piece that holds the return spring for the switch on the seat back release. When this piece breaks, the switch can't indicate that the release is back in the lock position. You will have to take part of the seat apart to replace this piece. There could be something else causing this problem, but this is the most common.
