Power Seat is not working Inspection Service

Either your power seat isn’t moving when you press the power button controls, or you may have a seat that is moving improperly or slowly.

Common reasons for this to happen:

Power seat buttons need cleaning or replacement

The power seat buttons in your car are typically either on the side of the seat or on a door panel. If water and moisture get into the power seat controls, your seat adjustments may stop functioning.

Object is lodged underneath the seat

An object can be lodged underneath the power seat which may be obstructing its movement.

Power seat motor is out

If you own an older car, the motors which move the seat may get tired. If your seat moved slowly before it stopped working entirely, you may need to have a motor replaced.

Blown fuse, worn gears or stretched cables

A blown fuse, cables that have been stretched or wrapped around the seat mechanisms, and alignment issues with the gears can all cause the power seat to malfunction.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the power seat malfunction, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How it's done:

The mechanic will inspect the fuses. If a fuse is blown, they will replace the fuse at no additional cost. If the fuses are ok, then it is likely that the power seat motor or the switch has gone bad. Both components will be thoroughly inspected.

How important is this service?

If you or others who drive your car can’t get into a comfortable driving position, it impairs your ability to drive the car and presents a safety risk. Book a mechanic to perform a thorough inspection.
