SOURCE: driver side power seat front to back motor stuck forward

Take apart the drive box in front of seat track, on both sides with an allen wrench. You can then push the seat to get at the bolts to remove it. My trolley drive motor had bad brushes. I am now looking to replace the motor, if I can find the replacement.

SOURCE: Electric front seat stuck in forward position.

I had the same problem on my 2003 Toyota Camry. The threaded drive screws are what spin underneath the seat and cause the seat to move back and forth (same way a garage door opens or closes). When the seat gets all the way in the forward position, the threading on the drive screws ends, which causes the bolts connected to the seat to jam and get stuck. It should sound like the motor is trying to turn but it won't, it just clicks. Un-jam the bolts and rotate them one rotation from the all the way forward position to ensure your seat is reinstalled straight.

SOURCE: 2000 Park ave - power seat problem

The electric adjustment motor has a drive-gear that engages a gear on the shaft of the adjustment screw (90 degree engagement). The gear on the adjustment shaft looses a tooth. Adjustment motor whines, drive gear on adjustment motor spins, no action though because of missing tooth. A 12mm 1/4" drive socket on a wiggler (universal) on the end of a 6" extension can engage the not on the end of the exposed large adjustment shaft and, as the shaft is lightly loaded and the electrical switch engaged, one can get the shaft to spin almost one revolution at a time until the seat is high enough. It is hard to reach the nut necessary (inside the dull-grey clevis that the shaft threads into) and I had to take off the seat pad by removing the 4@ 13mm nuts (and 3 @10mm nuts holding the center section with the driver's cushion) to more-or-less easily access the situation. Dealership wanted well over $1000. to fix it. Three out of my 4 up and down adjustment motors are running, but don't adjust. PS, on my 2001 Park Avenue on each seat there is one adjustment motor for the front edge up and down, one adjustment motor for the rear edge up and down, one adjustment motor for the seat fore and aft, and one adjustment motor for the sear back tilt. Lots of complication, not so much on durability. We do not swap out drivers and adjust the seats excessively. Weak design on the one internal gear. Manually adjust it, unplug the electric to the motor, Drive happy again.

Good Day.....is there an way to lower drivers seat. I feel so high driving in car. Have tried all the wheels and levers on side but obviously not doing the right things. Hyundai Tucson 2006.


Hi Viviana Is your seat manual operation if so is there a lever at the side if you lift it up several times it will raise the seat if you push it down several more times the seat should lower just keep pushing it down till the seat is at it's lowest.
If electric the forward most switch at the side of the seat you need to basically toggle in other words press down on the front part of the switch then press down on the rear part of the same switch.
It works as if you tilt the front of the seat down at an angle then you tilt the back of the seat down to match. To bring it back up just do the reverse. Good luck

My driver side seat won't go all the way forward. But when I let it back it goes back and goes down. When I move it forward it lifts up high but don't go forward enough for me.


Seat adjustment ranges are sometimes limited and sometimes there is a fault, such as a coin or something falling into one of the runners.

Cars intended for the premium market often have forward/back, up/down and sometimes tilt adjustment for the driver seat while for the small car, basic or budget market usually only have forward or back. Because on average a person who has shorter legs and needs the seat forward will also have a shorter body so enterprising designers have made the seat runners of some models slope upwards to lift the driver as the seat is moved forward.

Adjustable steering columns are fairly common, though only in the rise/fall plane. I haven't seen a telescopic column for many years. What is really needed is adjustable pedals but designers and manufacturers are very reluctant to go down that avenue, though there are companies specialising in such modifications.

You need to be on the ground on your knees with a good light looking under the seat to see if the available adjustment range takes the seat to the true limit of its travel in both directions.

Power seat motor


Fron first principles, the reverse movement of the motor is caused by reversing power polarity to the motor. If he motor runs in one direction and not the other then it isthe switch. It is not conecting power to the reverse contact. Check.replace switch.

The driver side power seat button moves forward and backward and reclines, but wont move up or down, the seat is stuck all the way down so i cant get to the wrom gear underneath, how do i go about raising...


I am working on a replacement motor that will come with a new gear/shaft on it. I have one of my setups in the car right now and have the parts for another one ordered. I hope to make a video of the repair in a couple weeks when the parts show up. Still uses plastic gears, but these are larger, more durable gears and the swap is fairly straight forward with just a few modifications.

1995 Lincoln Continental, passenger seat won't tilt back forward


YOU HAVE A SWITCH OR A TILT ACTUATOR MOTOR PROBLEM. LINCOLNS HAVE 5 OR 6 ELECTRIC MOTORS MOUNTED ON THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH FRONT SEAT WHICH REQUIRES REMOVING THE SEAT TO INSPECT .THEIR ARE ALSO CABLES ATTATCHED TO THESE MOTORS SO LISTEN WHEN YOU HIT THE TILT SWITCH DO YOU HEAR A MOTOR NOISE? IF YOU DO THEN YOU MAY HAVE A BAD CABLE.

1999 park avenue right front seat will not move up and down. It goes froward and backwards but not up or down.


Either the seat switch is bad or the cable that drives the seat adjuster up and down is broken. It will be easier to check the switch with an OHM meter than taking the seat out I know

How do I fix a 1995 buick park avenues front seat motors?


I had that problem with the motor for seat back tilt.
I had to remove the seat and take the cables out of the motor and connect the drive cables to 2 drills one in forward and one in reverse. I lubricated the threaded shafts and the drive unit with WD40 then ran the drills back and forward till it started moving again. then I lubed again with more wd40 and ran seat back all the way forward and back many times. reassembled and tested the motor by connecting 12 volt cordless drill batery to the motor to verify it is now working.
The problem that I am now having is no power to the drivers side and do have power on pasenger side, think they are the same fuse. Need schmatic/wire diagram to continue my trouble shooting . This should help with yours. test each motor with the cordless drill battery. reverse polarity to reverse direction.

Power seat on drivers side of 1996 buick park ave. wont go in reverse every ting else works ok


Chances are one of the motors has gone out. There are 3 motors for each of your power seats. One controls the forward/backward motion, one controls up/down/tilt, and the third controls the reclining seat back. In my '95 model, there is one fuse for the seats under the driver's side dashboard. There should be a diagram inside the fuse panel cover denoting which one controls the seats. Hope that helps!

Seat only works sometimes


You could have an issue with the body control module (BCM), GM can test it for proper function of the seats, there is no common problem so a trip to the dealer is good idea on this one.
