Front passenger seat

Asked by Apr 24, 2013 at 10:33 AM about the 2005 Ford Explorer Sport Trac XLT Crew Cab

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front passenger seat IS NOT manually operated it's motorized. I took a large friend to the doctor so I put him in the back seat moving the front seat forward to accommodate his size. As the front seat moved motored forward it seemed as if it was not going to stop until it hit the glove compartment so I quit advancing the seat. Now the seat will not go back to its original position but can still advance forward. Could you please give me help on how to repair? Thank you for your time.

The motor that runs the seat forward also runs it back, so rule out a bad motor, I would look at the switch that runs it forward and back, it may have a bad contact internally for the back position, you may have to partially disassemble the seat to gain access to the switch itself to test it.
