Hey everyone,
I'm looking for advice on how to repair my power seat. It stopped moving forward and back, but still raises, lowers, and tilts.
Thanks in advance,

I had this problem with my seat... It will freeze up every now and then but still works for the most part... All I did was spray a little WD 40 on the gears/tracks and that seems to help it a bit... Sorry I can't help more!

It's two different electric motors. They may be two of the same motor, but forward-backward takes more power and may have burned that one out... assuming you've checked any applicable fuses.

On my 98, it sometimes needs help getting started (that is, I have to manually push it forward or backward, then it gets up enough gumption to keep on moving the seat). This is even after I lubed the seat track.

YES! I totally forgot about that lol... Usually I have to move my seat back after someone borrows my car, or I am vacuuming under my seat and it will freeze up... I just have to push back and it will slow start grinding back... Then it usually can go the rest of the way itself...

Hey, thanks! And sorry I didn't reply to you all sooner.
Have you experienced the seat being off track? Mine is all the way back, and I can't get it forward even after WD 40 and someone pushing the seat from behind while I push the button forward. I can see a gear turning though.
Thanks,
