My driver side power seat adjustments aren't working

Asked by Jun 29, 2014 at 09:24 PM about the 2011 Ford Edge SEL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have electric power seats, and mt passenger side seat works fine, but the driver's side seat acts like the power cord has been unplugged.  No matter what I push, no sounds happen and nothing moves.  I did recently have the car detailed, so is there a place to "plug in" the power?

I appreciate the help! Just one more thing - there are a bunch of wires under there. Which one controls power TO the unit?

It's not the plug, it's the seat track, and extremely expensive to fix. Ford will not recognize the problem and help pay for the damage. We can't move the seat forward and now the seat is leaning backwards, so if someone hit you, you could break your neck! Costing almost 2,000, and the car has 41,000 miles. Thanks ford, I will never buy another one!

Try fuses. Number 7 in panel. It operates mirrors and driver seat

My 2011 Ford Edge SEL has a similar situation, without the bent track. The seat back was stuck all the way laying back and won't come up. Check the harness into the seat back motor and checked the main harness under the seat. All is fine. Checked fuse #23 in the main fuse box (drive seat control) and not blown. I have read a lot on the forums about this, but can't seem to narrow it down to the edge. Any thoughts anyone?

I'm having the same problem with my 2014 edge. did u ever solve the problem?

It was the switch on the seat. 275 bucks on partsgeek.com. Make sure it's the 10 way switch.

THANKS

My issue was the #23 30A Fuse in fuse box under the hood. The #7 Fuse inside car near drivers foot panel was fine. As soon as I replaced the #23 30A Low Profile JCase Fuse it worked again. Goodluck.
