Fullerton Automotive Electric Seat Repair
Automotive Electric Seat Repair – When you’re cruising through Fullerton in you vehicle, you want to be comfortable – and in today’s high tech vehicles that comfort comes in the shape of a luxurious power seat. Nowadays many vehicles are equipped with elaborate power seats that go beyond keeping your feet on the peddles. They automatically move in a variety of directions satisfying drivers every ergonomics need. When you press the power seat controls the power seat triggers motors which then moves your seat forward, backward adjust lumbar support, heated seats just to name a few of the many comfort options. Also allowing you to find the optimal placement for your seat, so that the gas and brake pedals are the right distance for your feet, and so that you are comfortable.
Unfortunately, with all those electronic options, power seats and their controls are more likely to fail than the older manual mechanical lever controlled seats. When the power seat switch fails, the seats can’t move when you press the button, and you won’t be able to control the placement of your seat. While this may not be a serious problem – you may not be able to see well or operate your vehicle if the seat is stuck in a position too far away from your peddles rendering your vehicle undrivable. Power seat switches are usually located on the seat itself or door panel. Those switches send power to the seat motors, allowing you to move your seat in several directions. If the switch malfunctions, then the seat may no longer move, or its movement may be limited. Also, it’s common for debris to get stuck in the tracks, preventing the seat from moving. However, if cleaning the debris doesn’t resolve the problem, your seat or switches may need to be repaired or replaced. If the switches are working and there is no debris, but your seat still does not move, you may have a malfunctioning power seat motor or a short in one of the wires going to the switch or motor. Something that only an ASE certified technician can handle, just like the technicians employed at Orozco’s Auto Service of Fullerton!
Most of the time in order to repair power seats, the seat must first be removed, then the motors, switches, & wiring will be inspected. Once the source of the problem is found, it must be repaired or replaced, then everything must be reassembled & thoroughly tested.
