Why Isn’t My Seat Adjuster Working?

Ken,

I drive a Lincoln Navigator and the electric lever that moves the seat back and forth stopped working.  Now the driver’s seat is stuck at my wife’s height which makes it difficult for me to drive.  The dealer is quoting me a huge price to replace the whole setup.  Is there anything else I can do?

Tom,

After a bit of research, it seems that a few other people have had the same problem and were able to solve it by simply replacing the switch.

What is likely happening is that an internal piece of the switch has broken and the actual motors and gears are ok.  Try heading back to the dealer, they might be able to replace only the broken part and save you some cash.
