Q: Seat adjustment not working

asked by on

The driver's seat doesn't go up.

Depending on whether your seat is mechanical or electronic can change the possibilities of this issue. Another possibility is that something could be stuck in the seat track, preventing the seat to move forward. The electronic motor/switch could have failed, not sending power to the motor itself. An inspection of your seat should be carried out by a qualified technician to address this problem.
