H​ello my name is ***** ***** me look at wiring diagram for you, give me a few minutes.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

Ok i looked at a wiring diagram, since the seat moves up and down, this means power and ground to the switch is ok, it could be a bad horizontal switch or a bad motor, to test the switch and wiring, take a test light and go to the horizontal motor and disconnect it, then put the test light on the 2 wires in the connector and push the switch forward and back and the light should light both directions, if not, you have a bad switch or a bad wire, if it does light up both ways, the motor is bad.

Ok.
I'm heading to work now and will need to pull the seat tomorrow. can i reach out with more questions then?
Do you know the part number for a new switch or motor if either one of those is the issue?

I don't have access to parts, and really don't know which part is bad, the test light test will tell for sure. Yes you ask as many questions as needed, all I ask is you take the time to rate my service today, as this is how I am paid for my time, thanks Scott

You can always ask follow up questions, the system will let me know when you replied, thanks again.

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.

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.

BRNew Jersey
