2002 town and country driver seat motor still runsyet seat wont move?. same with all other functions except back of seat button
As other posters have said, the motor might be blown, or the fuse.
\012Check that stuff first. This particular solution is for the HORIZONTAL movement of the seat (forward & backward). My seat was stuck in the all-the-way-forward position. Not fun for driving (2002 Town & Country, by the way).
\012
\012If your motor still makes a sound, as if it's trying to move something but is jammed, I have the solution for at least moving the seat MANUALLY. For me personally, not only was I able to move the seat manually, but I guess doing that un-jammed the screw-accuator-drive-whatever-you-call-it. The seat works fine now!
\012
\012On either side of your seat there is a large plastic panel. The panel is attached with standard Philips screws. There should be 3 of them, so search around and make sure you get 'em all. You can remove either panel (I did the one on the seatbelt side). Once the panel is off, look for a port that corresponds with where the cable from the electric motor (marked "horizontal") attaches within a long rail under the seat. The port will be on the outer side of the seat, more towards the front. It's a circular hole with a square-bit screw in the center. You're gonna need a square-shaped bit in your screwdriver.
\012
\012Now start turning the the screw and you should notice that the seat is moving. If I remember right, turning clockwise moved the seat backward. This is actually turning a very long screw within that rail under the seat. I noticed I could turn the screw a bit, and then use the control for the seat to supplement the movement until I had it in a good position. For me, this actually seemed to fix the seat, as it moves forth & back using the control just fine. We'll see how long it lasts. Inevitably, I'm gonna have to take it to a pro, but at least the seat is in a reasonable position now!
\012
\012I apologise if I made any Chrysler mechanics sick with my solution, but there is virtually no information to help a non-mechanical person at least temporarily move their seat when it's stuck like mine was. Good luck, I hope this works.
