The seat memory potentiometers are bad, they are made of plastic and break.
There is one located on each motor (4 in total) This is why the solumn and mirrors still work.
The seat won't go forward becuase it doesn't know where to stop.
The repair is very expensive ($1200 for parts + 5-6 hours labor)

Try setting the seat position memory before you switch off.

Set 1 2 switches? please clarify


See pg. 3-31 in owners manual. Start car in park. Adjust seat, telescoping wheel, and side view mirrors. Pust Mem button and then within 5 sec. push either 1 or 2. That button should light to show memory stored.
From the 2012 Guide (See link)
l"AUTOMATIC DRIVE POSITIONER (if so equipped) Two positions for the driver's seat, steering column and outside mirrors can be stored in the automatic drive positioner memory. Follow these procedures to set the memory positions: • Confirm the shift lever is in the P (PARK) position. • Push the ignition switch to the ON position. • Adjust the driver's seat, steering column and outside mirrors to the desired positions using the adjusting switches for each feature. • Push the SET switch and within 5 seconds, push the memory switch (1 or 2) for at least 1 second. • The indicator light on the memory switch you select will illuminate for approximately 5 seconds. • The driver's seat, steering column and outside mirror positions are now set to your preference. These memorized positions can also be linked to your NISSAN Intelligent Key®. For more information, refer to the "Pre-driving checks and adjustments (section 3)" of your Owner's Manual." https://owners.nissanusa.com/content/techpub/ManualsAndGuides/Murano/2012/2012-Murano-quick-reference-guide.pdf

2000 C70 driver seat motor 'chatters' & won't adjust


Try a simple trick I have used on many Volvos. You will need several paper towels and a can of WD40. With the ignition off soak the switch until it overflows with WD40 and work it in all it's directions for 5 minutes and repeat. The WD40 will clean the contacts which is the normal problem.

My right mirror on 325 i 2005 doesn't work. When i change my seat position with the memory, the seats goes on but not the mirrors. I can adjust my left mirror but not the rigth one; it never move.


I would safely assume your right mirror may be inoperable period then by your statement you are leaving the switch for the mirrors in the middle during switching correct and during adjustment are switching to R/L mirror on the switch? Mirrors are on the same circuit so both should be operable. Have the mirror checked for operation before heading any further. I Think you will find during this its unplugged from its source of power or inoperable period and needs replaced. Remember to rate my solution and leave testimonial PS please purchase you a Owners Manual for your car you will thank me later.

1996 camry le 6 cylinder. cannot get ignition key to turn to start car. gear is in park and have tried adjusting steering wheel


Hi the steering lock could be causing you the problem try turning the steering wheel hard left whilst turning the key and do the same hard right.

it may be hard to turn but you should find once you have moved it slightly it will unlock allowing you to turn the key so dont adjust the steering wheel turn it to the right as if your trying to turn to the right and if this dont let the key turn turn the wheel to the left it only needs to move slightly to allow the steering lock to free the key,

doing the above should solve you problem

give me a shout back if you have any further problems ok

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. My drivers side front power seat does Not stay adjusted. Every time I turn the ignition on the seat moves backward and the back lays down.


The limited edition brings memory setting for mirrors and seats, it recognizes which key are you putting in the ignition and puts the saved setting accordingly to that driver's key. That is the reason your seat keeps moving. You need to reprogram the seat position for that key. Good luck

Can't remove key from ignition,it's an 02 grand prix, everything works right just can't pull out the key


I'm guessing your gran prix is a floor shifter?
if so, sitting in drivers seat have car running,put your foot on the brake,and move the shifter to first gear,while you are doing this watch the steering cover behind the steering wheel rotate also.when you see the column cover moving bring the shifter back to the park position,while watching which way the column is rotating,when you get to park put your hand around the bottom of that rotating column cover and turn it up further and remove your key.the shifter cable needs to be adjusted some

I had that problem. I have a 1997 528i, the plug on the side of the drivers seat under the plastic panel came unplugged. I had to just simply plug it back in, steering wheel adjusted and seat moved too. Maybe this is your problem too.
