What To Do For Automotive Electric Seat Repair

Automotive Electric Seat Repair



Long Beach Downtown Power Seat Repair

Power Seat Repair – When you’re driving down Long Beach Blvd., you want to be comfortable and be looking good – and in today’s high tech vehicles that comfort comes in the shape of a luxurious power seat.  Many vehicles today come with elaborate power seats that do a lot more than keeping your feet on the peddles. Power seats can automatically move in a many directions satisfying all your ergonomics needs, with some warming your seat. So lets take a look at some of the mechanics of those hi tech seats. When you engage the power seat controls the seat triggers motors which then moves your seat forward, backwards, adjusts lumbar support and heat seats just to name a few of the many comfort options. Including allowing you to find the optimal placement of your seat, so that the peddles are the right where you need them.

The bad news is with all those electronic options, power seats and their controls have a greater chance of braking than the older manual controlled seats. When that power seat switch fails, the seats can’t move, and you won’t be able to adjust the placement of your seat. While this may not be a serious problem – you may not be able to see well or operate your vehicle if you can’t reach the peddles. Also,  it’s common for debris to get stuck in the tracks, preventing the seat from moving. However, if cleaning the debris doesn’t resolve the problem, your seat or switches may need to be repaired or replaced. If the switches are working and there is no debris, but your seat still does not move, you may have a malfunctioning power seat motor or a short in one of the wires going to the switch or motor. Something that only an ASE certified technician can handle, just like the technicians employed at Orozco’s Auto Service of Long Beach, Downtown!

Power seat switches are usually located on the seat or door panel. Those switches send power to the seat motors, allowing you to move your seat in several directions. If the switch malfunctions, then the seat may no longer move, or its movement may be limited. The majority of the time to repair power seats, they must first be removed, then the motors, and then the switches and wiring need to be inspected. Once the source of the problem is found, it must be repaired or replaced, then everything must be reassembled & thoroughly tested.
