It depends, a test light will make trouble shooting this quick. Unplug the motor that controls forward and back movement. Probe the vehicle side of the connector with your test light while operating the switch. If you have power going to the motor when the switch is activated then it is not a switch issue. It is either the motor or there is an obstruction not allowing the seat to move in the track.

Tap on the motor while pushing the switch. if this does not work take the motor apart and clean the small brushes that contact the motor shaft 2 total they will have a copper wire attached to them good luck

SOURCE: power seat will move up and down but not back and forward.

make sure the track isn't jammed under the seat doesn't take much to jam it may have to remove it and check wire plug if that doesn't work probably going to be the motor in the seat

2008 chrysler seabring convertible top is stuck


The top is operated by a electrically driven hydraulic pump, so more then likely you have a loss of fluid due to a leaking hose or cylinder and this lowers the system pressure and causes the top to stop functioning.

2008 Chrysler Sebring hard top convertible goes halfway back to open then stops in the middle of the cycle.


There are many possible causes of this problem on the convertible Sebrings, the most common problems are as follows;

1) The cargo platform in the trunk is in the wrong position which blocks the rear window from folding downward. Ensure that the cargo platform is in the down position before attempting to operate the top.
2) The Hydraulic pump is low on fluid, it is located in the trunk, in the left rear corner, underneath the carpet. Inspect the fluid level in the reservoir.
3) There is an electrical fault in the system.
4) There is physical damage to one of the panel pivots, inspect for panel binding while the top is moving.

A couple questions for you;

When the top stops moving can you still hear the pump running or does it go quiet?

When the top stops moving does the cluster display "convertible top in operation" or "convertible top malfunction" or something else?

Report back with anything you find or if you need further help.

Chrysler sebring roof wont open


Look under the back seat to see if there is any oil . Sometimes the hydrolic rams that move the top will leak fluid. If there is oil refill the fluid may help get the top open, but the ram will need to be replaced.

2008 sebring convertable frt.driver seat does not back and forth


this seat likely has two different motors to operate these functions and the one that slides it back and forth could either have a bad fuse or could be bad. when hitting the button that should operate this function put your ear near the bottom of the seat and listen for any type of noise coming from the motor. if it sounds as if its trying to move your motor is likely seized. if you can spin the motor over manually it may free it up and you could never end up having to replace it.
