1998 Cadillac Deville power seat issues

Unread post by richp1965 » Wed Jun 12, 2013 11:31 am

Hey all Caddy lovers!
I have a 98 Cadillac Deville and this morning, I started the car and as soon as I did, the drivers seat back went all the way down in the say, laying down position and will NOT go back to the upright position. This happened one other time and it eventually went back up but this time, it hasnt. Is there anyway to override the switch or maunally get the seat back to the correct position? I cant drive the car as it is so if ANYONE has the answer, PLSSSSS let me know asap. You can even call me at 760-333-6594. Thanks very much!

Sounds like a shorted wire or memory module under the seat. You could try to apply power and ground to the recliner motor to see if you can get it to come back up. You would need to remove the seat to do that, or to test why it is happening.
