Having problems with your Ford LTD ?

85 ford FE LTD .I dont seem to have power up to the seat control switch in the consul to make either seat go forward? They go backwards,tilt and go up and down. used a test light and have no power to the wire? Is there a seperate fuse or relay for that and if so where do i find it? Any help would be apreciated

Answers :

The power for the seats comes from the # 12 circuit breaker in the fuse box on the left side of the instrument panel. the power comes from the circuit breaker threw the large black/white wire to the power seat switch

\015\012the yellow/white wire is the forward wire the red/white wire is the back wire
\015\012
\015\012if you have power to the black/whithe wire at the switch then your power source is ok.
\015\012
\015\012when you push the power seat froward button the yellow/white wire should have 12 volt
\015\012
\015\012when you push the power seat button back the red/white wire should have 12 volts

\015\012if they do replace the seat motors

\015\012if they don't replace the power seat switch
\015\012As you mentioned that seat go backwards properly,so seat motor is working.If there is power to the switch and it is acting erratically, the problem must be in the switch.
Remove the switch and replace it.
\015\012Going backwards, the motor "works with" you, and current drawn by motor is less, but going forward, the motor "works against" you, current draw is higher, which always burns up the forward switch contacts faster than the backward switch contacts.Remove the seat and check the wirings.In the switch many a times wires get cut in between.You will have to check for 12 volt.The switch gets power to function from battery.If there is no 12 volt switch is faulty,check for short in wires,in some cases getting the wires reconnected helps.____________ And for the fuse which you asked,yes there is a fuse in power distribution fuse box under the hood.But if other function for seat are working then its not fuse,its faulty switch.------------ This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.\015\012
