Anyone know how to move the drivers seat forward when the power seat buttons dont work? I need to replace the power seat electronics by removing the drivers seat, but can't move the seat foward to get to the rear bolts. I did some searching and found nothing. Thanks.

Have you double checked the fuse?

Yep, its 100% not a fuse. Its the entire power button module that is bad.

Have you tried the Memory buttons?
Also try with a different key fob.

Key fob changed with no difference, memory buttons don't work.

You need to access the module under the seat and look at the wiring diagram to see which connectors to jump to close the circuit to get the seat to move.


If your motor is dead, you are in for some serious work. (I had that problem) you need to disassemble the seat bottom as much as you can and the get at the wire cables that drive the worm gears in the seat rails. You can turn them by hand or drill. Then you can access the bolts and remove the seat. This could easily take 3 hrs.

The issue ended to being a bad memory seat module under the seat.
