Memory seat just on driver seat. I think
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

When you press horizontal forward movement, even though it is all the way forward does it attempt to move making a sound?

Do you have the skills and tools to unbolt the seat from the floor?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
When horizontal forward the seat moved all the way forward and stopped in the forward most position. Can't hear sound.
I do have the skills and tools to unbolt the seat from floor. Unbold seat from track or do I remove entire seat assy seat, track, and mounts?
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 1 year ago

Lets just unbolt the seat from the floor, tilt it back so you can unplug all connectors then tilt it all the way back onto the rear seat.

Here are your wire diagrams.

I do not know if you understand wiring or not but the switch sends a signal to the drivers seat module then it commands the seat motors and the motors have position sensors. Lets see if we can remotely power and ground the horizontal motor to see if it works and moves. Use jumper cables to the battery with short wire leads in the ends of the cables. Unplug the horizontal motor and apply power and ground to the green/blue and green/white wires. If it does not move then reverse the wires.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
