    1996 sts drivers seat not functioning

    Hi everyone, first post and first time owner of a Cadillac... really happy with my purchase and am really excited to work out some kinks with it, the vehicle is in excellent shape but I find it has some quirks, this one being that the drivers seat it not working... at first I thought I could be a motor however I randomly turned the ignition and it moved backwards for a second... it is now in the far most rear and inclined position it can be in, being 5'9 this is somewhat difficult to drive with, i'm wondering how I can diagnose and treat the issue

    thank you so much

    I can't send you pm it seems you have reached your quote according to CF Board this is why I am posting in here to clear the things :

    I mean by saying that that car throws p1599 malfunction light (whatever it refers to ) and that car yet stalls with that code is on , clearing the code didn't fix the issues
    I got rid of that car this is why I no longer post in here but my best advice is stick to( Ranger's advices one of the best guys and the best super mod according to me ) . I also remember codewise a very valuable and knowledgeable member too so you can trust in his messages , if he still hangs in here
    Have a good weekend

    Start by pulling the DTC's. See the sticky at the top of the form page if you need help. Post the codes AND their definitions.

    I would suspect and check the switch before the motor.
