Hi Forum users,

I have a 2008 Escalade ESV. My front power seat only partially works, the forward/aft and the recline switches are curtailed to a slight movement forward or back then it stops. I wait four seconds and it will move again a 1/4 inch. I did some research on this and only found a couple non Chevy suggestions. I installed a new switch but to no avail. I checked the fuse and it was good as expected, since there is some movement, one suggestion was to check/replace the seat relay and the other was to check/replace the seat circuit breaker. I switched the passenger circuit breaker with the driver CB and no change. I do not know where the seat relay is. Has anyone had a problem like this? Any suggestions?
Anyone know where the seat relay is located?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, JB

Try greasing the track. If the grease on the track is dried out or there is not enough it will struggle or not work.

Thanks for the suggestion. I will add grease. Does not look dried but it can’t hurt. Thanks.

It sounds like it is tripping the breaker. That would indicate a short in the wiring or a bad motor. Listen to the breaker as someone moves the seat to see if you can hear it tripping.
