Driver power seat not working

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help!

I have 2008 GMC Sierra SLT duramax. The issue I’m having is: the driver’s side Seat is not working. I have tried troubleshooting the issue and I have found that when the seat is bolted down it doesn’t work but whenever I take the bolts loose and have the sitting on the carpet not touching any metal the seat works just fine.  I have looked for maybe a wire touching metal but I haven’t found anything.   I thought it might be the module but I’ve decided that’s probably not the problem because the passenger side seat does work. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to check next?

  Have you solved this issue yet? I recommend starting with the fuse for power to seats if you havent as of yet. With the symptoms your describing, I would suspect a ground wire inside the seat. I would suspect grounded in motor case? Try swapping seats, see if symptoms follow to the passenger side. If it does, then your short is in the seat. I believe you can switch out the electricals in the seat, but dont be surprised if you have to buy a whole new seat.

      Hello, my airbag service light came on last week and I thought it was due to the recall that is on this model. I had the recall fixed and the light is still on. Plus my power seat and passenger windows won't work. I checked all of the fuses and modules with no luck. Has anyone else had this issue and if so what was wrong. Thank you!

      Guys I need your help.
      So my seats are power seats,and the driver's seat doesn't slide foward or back.i had found out what the problem is.
      There are these springs that connect to the motor and rod.that spring rotates the rod.and mine are messed up.
      And I'm wondering if anyone can help me out with the part name or something similar to it.im sorry if this isn't making sense,or y'all don't know what I'm talking about.but if theres a way y'all can help me out that would be great.

      My driver's seat bolster stopped moving.  I can hear the motor whining, and the the 4-way dial still operates the vertical lumbar support fine.  It's the horizontal supports that move in/out from the sides of your torso that I'm talking about.  Any suggestions on a fix? I've read gently that this could be some type of stripped plastic gearing assembly, or similar plastic guides like a window regulator.  Has anyone replaced the offending components with success?  Please help.  Thanks!

      I have a 2008 silverado crew cab ltz z71 with memory seats. Lately, I have had intermitten issues with the seat not moving to the rear position when i turn off the ignition. If I press the "exit" button on the door several times, the seat will eventually move backwards. I have also tried the side controls on the seat when this occurs as well, and even the manual switch will not work. It will work after i have pressed the "exit" button on the door several times. I hope i have explained this enough, any ideas? Thank you for your time.
