2016 suburban seat automatically unlatches when I shift into park

Asked by Nov 29, 2016 at 12:24 PM about the 2016 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ 1500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

One of our second row bucket seats automatically
unlatches and flops down or flies forward even if it
had been securely locked. It seems to happen when
I put the car shift in park. Has anybody else noticed
this? Anyway to make it stop auto unlatching and
flying forward every time I park?

Somehow I doubt the seats are really securely locked. Examine the latch to see if something is stuck in it. Since your Chevy is under warranty take it in to the dealer.

The solution is obvious - only stop when going in reverse. (j/k)

KenF - haha! Full_of_Regrets - thanks, I checked and when I set them up I hear the click that it latched into place, and pull back and forth on it and it's secured. It only unlatches when I shift into park (from a stopped position) - not when I'm slowing down or anything like that, where you would expect it to flip forward....

There is no connection to the seat latch from the gear lever. Just because you hear a click does not mean it is fully latched. I would inspect the latch itself and operate it while looking at the latch. Also check the latch point.
