: 96 Fleetwood power seat problem

07-05-05, 07:22 AM
1996 Fleetwood Brougham.

Was driving yesterday when all of a sudden - without any use of the power seat control swiches - the driver's side seat went forward to the maximum position. Needless to say it has made the car very difficult to drive!

This has happened before and I corrected the problem by reaching under the seat and manually pressing together all the connections.

In this case I have had no such luck. I worked on the problem for 2 -3 hours last night and although I could hear the seat trying to connect, there was no movement. It is very difficlut to isolate the problem even when I could hear the seat connecting for a brief second. Also the seat motor started to oveheat and I had to remove circuit breaker/fuses in order to cool it down ; indicating that a switch is most likely in the 'on' position.

The power recliner and seat level adjusters work as well as the power windows; all power controls on the passenger seat work.

Any help would be appreciated as I am terrified of my dealer here.
