Bought it used. Brought it home and within hrs the driver side seat was stuck fully reclined. After reading some posts I disconnected the plugs under the seat and got it to work long enough to adjust to the wifes height. But its not working again. Anyone know which wire to tap into in order to add a ground wire to the control module for the seat?
Both Front power seats will not move but I can hear them click when I try using the power control for the seats I think.
Reocuring problem, have disconnected connection under seat with some success. Last time it worked for nearly 2 months then went out again. This is a very dangerous and irritating problem, I feel this should be a Chrysler recall to fix because if car seat is too far forward I cannot even drive my car safely.
Seats were working when the car went to the Chrysler dealership when the transmission failed. The service manager admitted the seats worked when he got in to help move the car inside the service area. Following transmission and transmission control module replacement (during which the dealer indicated he had problems with the new module "talking" with the car) the seats quit working. I believe he inadvertently caused the seat module problem but has refused to accept responsibility (states "it was just coincidence" the seat module failed while he was having issue with the transmission control computer working). I am trying to figure out if this is an owner replaceable module or if syncing with the vehicle computer is required.
Driver seat and passenger seat controls went out as well as radio display and heated seat on driver side
The power options on my driver seat stopped working. My husband happened to be taking a nap after college and before work when it happened to the seat was all the way down and all the way back. The mechanic THINKS it COULD be the module under the seat but needs to look at it another day to make sure. What would even cause that?? We have a warranty but it may or may not cover fixing it depending on the cause. Who would have thought a stupid seat would cause so many problems and be so potentially expensive! Grr
Took car in for service on ERG, Oxygen sensor, ABS sensor, 2 tire pressure sensors, throttle body cleaning and flushing for all systems. Unfortunately all these things happened in the past month. Never any other service to the PAC except PCM replacement, oil changes and wiper blades. After the service, the seats no longer worked, the cruise control no longer worked, and a new code p0420 appeared. The dealership fixed the cruise control by reattaching a vacuum hose disconnected during the throttle body cleaning and reset the code (if it reappears I will need a new catalytic converter). Anyway, they are refusing to pay to fix the seats but I will be calling their corporate office regarding TSB 08-039-05. After $2200 in repairs, it's hard to hear that they want another $350 to fix a seat system that had been working.
Bought it used a year ago got in to drive it home started to move the seat and bam it stopped then a few days later the pedals stopped moving.
I bought the car used I test drove it and the driver's seat switch worked fine I buy the car try to adjust the seat for my wife who's a 1 1/2' shorter than me and we are unable too the seat can't be adjusted back nor forth only the back rest.I can hear a ticking sound when we try but it won't move
