Automotive Electric Seat Repair


Garden Grove Power Seat Repair

When you’re driving down Garden Grove Blvd., you want to be comfortable – and in today’s vehicles that comfort comes in the shape of a luxurious power seat. Most drivers have their seat, steering wheels, & mirrors adjusted for their own ergonomics, but nowadays many vehicles are equipped with electric power seats.

When you press the power seat button on your seat or door, the power seat switch triggers a motor which then moves your seat forward or backward on a track. This control allows you to find the optimal placement for your seat, so that the gas and brake pedals are the right distance for your feet, and so that you are comfortable.

And with many things electronic, power seats and their controls are more likely to fail than simple mechanical lever controlled seats. When the power seat switch fails, the seats won’t move when you press the button, and you won’t be able to control the placement of your seat. While this may not be a serious problem – you may not be able to see or operate your vehicle easily if the seat is stuck in a position too far away from what you’re used to rendering your vehicle undrivable. Power seat switches are usually located on the seat itself or door panel. Those switches send power to the seat motors, allowing you to move your seat in multiple directions. If the switch malfunctions, then the seat may no longer move, or its movement may be limited. Also,  it’s common for debris to get stuck in the tracks, preventing the seat from moving. However, if cleaning the debris doesn’t resolve the problem, your seat or switches may need to be repaired or replaced. If the switches are working and there is no debris, but your seat still does not move, you may have a malfunctioning power seat motor or a short in one of the wires going to the switch or motor. Something that only a seasoned ASE certified mechanic can handle, just like the mechanics employed at Orozco’s Auto Service of Garden Grove!

In order to repair power seats, the seat must first be removed, then the motors, switches, & wiring will be inspected. Once the source of the problem is found, it must be repaired or replaced, then everything must be reassembled & thoroughly tested.
