My mustang driver seat...

My mustang driver seat is electronic and stuck in the full forward position _ all directions work except back. Is there a way to override so the seat will move back as the switch is silent for the back direction

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Mustang?

2006

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing as I need to push car out of garage to have room to work

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I want to know if I can open the switch. And override to make it manual or whatever will allow it to Mack up so I can drive

Hi my name is ***** ***** I'll be more than happy to assist you. Please allow me a few minutes to review your information. Thank you

Ask Your Own Ford Question

there is no manual override for your seat, the only thing you can do is disconnect the horizontal motor under the seat and apply 12 volts directly to the reverse contact on the motor to see if you can get it to move back, assuming the motor is ok

The motor works forward, up down etc
I am no mechanic just need seat to go back so I can get it to a mechanicWhat would be used as a 12 volt charge
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No just doing research so I can try this weekend

you can use a power probe or a long wire from the battery positive to the reverse contact on the horizontal motor

Ask Your Own Ford Question

ill get you the location of the horizontal motor and the contact location that you will need to apply the power to

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

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.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
