Having problems with your 1999 Honda Odyssey ?
My 99 Odyssey left front seat does not recline. It moves back and forth, but no sound or motion from the motorized recline when the switch is engaged. Thanks, Stuart
Yes... you have to push the electrical connector off the motor, and test whether there's 12 V across the pins when you operate the switch. But it really isn't TOO difficult to remove the seat. There are pop-off covers front and back, and you unscrew the 4 bolts. Take out the left middle seat, left the front seat carefully and disconnect the main connector. Then lay the front seat over and reconnect that main connector (use pliers if needed to unclip the socket from the body). Like I say, if there's 12 V there, your motor's no good! If no 12 V, then you'll have to troubleshoot the switch and harness. But I think the motor's kaputt, sorry!
