Q: Power seat stuck forward

asked by on

The front passenger's side power seat is stuck in the far forward position and won't slide back.

Hi there. If your power seat is not working it can be 1 of 2 things. Firstly, this can be an issue with the fuse that is connected inline for the power seats to work. Secondly, it can be your power seat motor that has gone out. I would have your power seats inspected by qualified mechanic to determine what repair can be made.
