Asked by Kae Apr 04, 2013 at 12:29 AM about the 2006 Kia Sorento

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My driver's power seat won't recline.  All of the seat controls work except THAT one.  It'll go up, it just won't recline back.  I need to test the fuse/relay, but I'm unsure where it is in the fuse box diagram.  I wanna test the fuse/relay before thinking that it's the motor.  Where can I find that fuse or relay?  

Any help appreciated...

" It'll go up, it just won't recline back." -- The problem is not electrical. If it goes up, the fuse, wires and motor are good. The seat uses the same parts for moving in both directions. Your problem seems to be in the switch that reverses the polarity in the wires. You may be able to take the switch apart to check and clean it. Someone on eBay might have another switch for sale.
