Really useful site there, eh Mark? CJTeri, I'm guessing you could be having an issue with the motor, switch, or ground. I would check the switch first and try to jumper the + and - to see if things move around. If they do, then clean that switch and if that doesn't work, then buy used/new. Check post 5 here for the attachment of a diagram of the seat:: http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/109-gen- 3-2005-2009/134233-05-outback-broken-seat-motor-heater.html ::::: post 21 here (black connector) -- idk if this one will help or not, it's possibly just another way of testing for movement:: http://legacygt.com/forums/showthread.php/power-seats-not- working-157178p2.html :::::

Good one, Walth. Often a back seat passenger or vacuuming head dislodges the motor connector too. First things first....
