Our 1996 Taurus driver's seat intermittently dies. In fact, mostly is dead. When it comes back it works fine. It seems to be as simple as the motor that moves the seat forward and back is nearly burnt out. The other motor is fine.

It doesn't seem like this part can be found anymore, but I'm thinking newer cars may have used the same seat motor.

Does anyone have a source for a replacement motor [even a known good used one] or know of any newer model car that the seat motor replacement is available and will work in our '96?

Thanks guys!

Thanks. I know it can be the switch.

I also remember the motor looking a little different. What year is that?

Do not know, I bought it and used on '03, several years all the same. The '01-'02 Lin Cont uses the same track. I have had 2Lin cont and they are very hard on the for/aft gear. Has a memory so it moves the seat back and forth with each in/out or change in driver unless you opt out on the menu. Lots of Bulls in the JY, rare to find a Lin. Switch a Bull track to Lin only involves switching the wires and sensors.

I've got a whole rack assembly off the bottom of a 1996 SHO drivers seat.

Does this look more like what you are seeing on your seat?

I could part with it if necessary.
