#3 of 5 Re: driver front power seat control failure [gmcustsvc]
May 05, 2010 (1:39 pm)
The car was repaired the dealership. I just got home with it repaired.... They said someone had re-routed wiring under the driver's seat into the wrong channel, it needed to go through the middle & it was going to the left one. Hence, when I would put the seat to the lowest setting, it would short out. (I am tall & don't like my knees in the dash & I like to sit lower than most people I guess)
They were great with the repair...tried for 3 tries. Hopefully this fix will hold....time will tell. Does this sound right?, what they did I mean??
Thanks for your reply!

I am glad to see they got your vehicle fixed. If it was causing a failure because the wires were in the wrong spot then it should be correct. I cannot say for certain because I cannot see the vehicle for myself. But, the information sounds correct. Keep me posted if anything happens. Thank you,

#5 of 5 Movement back and forth failure
May 27, 2012 (1:59 pm)
I have a 2008 Malibu with 61,000 miles. The driver's seat front to back movement has just stopped working totally. About a month ago it was working, if I tried the switch a few times. The other directions are working. Has anyone had any experiences with this failure? A short or bad motor? In either case, sounds like a lot of labor hours to fix at the dealer.
