Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
The driver seat will not adjust forwards or backwards. The passenger adjust with no problem.. so i have deduced that it is not the fuse. Also all connections seem securely fastened. I activate the adjusted on the side of the driver seat and nothing happens, not even a noise like it is trying to move. So question is if it is not the fuse, and likely its not the connections, what could be causing it to have no response when activated?
My power seats on my 09 Impala have stopped working. Neither the passenger seat nor the drivers seat work. What can it be?

I have a 2007 Impala. Thank you razor67 for the tap. I did not even remove the seat motor. All I used was an 18 inch rod and a hammer from the rear and hit the motor a couple of times and it's freed.

It can also be theseat motor since there is seperate motors for up/down & forward/backwards. You can test the switch to see if you are getting power to the connector on the motor by using a multimeter.
If there is power to the motor, I would remove the motor and give it a tap on the ground. Alot of the time the motor is fine, and the tap will free it up again. If it doesn't work you may be up for a new seat motor. Giving mine a tap solved the issue with mine.

Replacement parts and labor could run $200 + from the dealer.. Yes, a replacement switch can be obtained from a salvage yard, BUT NOT from an auto parts store. It is not difficult to remove old switch and replace

Electric or manual??? If electric one of the motors has gone out. If the kids were playing with it they may have held the button down causing the motor to spin while the seat was all the way foward and it will just burn the motor up after so long. Also the switch could be bad. Unfortunatley being that its power there is no way to manually move the seat back without the motor turning or removing the seat and spinning the motor sprocket by hand...

Well what I saw when I pulled my seats out of my 97 LC was that the worm gear on the bottom of the track had lost some tread. (its plastic) also, there is a cap that screws in to the end of that gear to hold it in place, so when you reverse the seat, the gear moves if that cap falls out of place ----small plastic cap fell out in mine. The whole rail system is like $300 at Toyota but i found a website that sells the cap and the gears for $20. I will try to post it tomorrow-for the time being, you can take the seat out -be sure to unplug the electronics, and use a wrench to manually move the seat back and then put it back into place
