Q: Front passenger seat won't move backward

asked by on

My front passenger seat doesn't move backward.

Hi. If it moves forward, but not backwards, it is most likely the switch. A few simple checks with a test light can determine what it needs. Make sure there isn’t anything in the track preventing the movement. I’ve seen a coin jam up a seat before. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect the electrical components and have any failing part replaced.
