Q: Malfunctioning driver's side power seat.

asked by on

I am having a problem with the driver's side power seat tilt function. The recline also doesn't work.

The power seat switch may be bad and would have to be checked for sending power out to the power tilt and recline functions. If the switch is working correctly then the power seat motors would be checked and replaced as needed. Some vehicles are repaired by replacing individual motors and others you have to replace the entire power seat assembly button.
