#1680 of 1888 Seats not working properly
Dec 10, 2009 (12:51 pm)
I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. Both front seats slides to the front and back but both seats no longer "roll-over" to allow people to get in (and out of) the backseats. This problem occurred to the driver's seat first a few months ago and it occurred to the front passenger seat just yesterday.
I'm trying to get a sense of what the problem might be and how easy/difficult it is to get it fixed (by me or a repair shop).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Mine are doing the same thing and I can't figure it out either. Maybe someone will post something to help both of us out. Mine is a 99.

I had the same problem with my drivers seat. I found that the cable had stretched, not allowing the mechanism under the seat to release (roll over)
I was a very easy fix, (do not remove the seat) under the seat you'll see the cable and and if you work the lever you'll see the cable trying to move the mechanism and you should see that when the lever is in its rest position there will be a bit of excess (stretched cable) between the stopper on the cable and the mechanism. Simply get a cable tie and zip it tight on this excess cable, just before the stopper.
I needed 2 cable ties on mine but it works perfectly and most probably a damn site cheaper and easier than replacing the whole cable

I have the same problem but i found out when i redid my seats that it wasn't a stretched cable it was actually a broken cable inside the cable houseing. Still haven't fixed it but on the passanger side if you reach under the seat you will fell and upside down U if you push it down and keep you head clear of the seat you can still get the seat to flip forward. This seems to be a running problem with newer jeeps mine and my brothers both had this happen.

You may want to check that the front wheel bearings are not loose. I had a chev 4x4 that would shimmy really bad when you are going just at the right speed and hit a bump or dip in the road. My 09 Jeep so far has no problem with this as of yet.

97 wrangler 6cyl. Only the defrosters work. the 2 front over the radio dont work as well as the larger ones on the side.
The diverter door, which is operated by one of the slide levers on the heater control panel, isn't moving.
Check to see if the cable is seized or detached, or if the door is broken.
Also, my windshield wipers have only one speed one speed- fast! even the timing switch doesnt work.
Bad switch, bad motor, or a detached wire.

I have a 2000 TJ wrangler and trying to get my blower motor to work........
On the later models the blower motor is also controlled by a relay.
If it's not the relay that's at fault it could be the fuse that supplies it.
Make sure you actually check the fuses for continuity, don't just look at them.
The full circuit diagrams for the 2000 blower motor, relay fuses and switch are below.
