Falcon BA Ghia seat won't go forward

Hi all, I have a Falcon Ghia 2003 model and tonight when I went to move my electric seat forward it wouldn't move. When I moved it back, it went ok, but when I went to move it forward again, it moved forward a bit, but no where as much as it should. It also tilts the seat and moves the back as it should.

Is there a way that I can reset it, or does it need to go into the shop?

Thanks heaps.

Checked the seat runners / tracks are not obstructed in any way or anything restricting movement ?

Thanks for the reply. I couldn't see anything blocking it, but I couldn't really see much though. I will take it into Ford tomorrow and get them to check it out. I can only just reach the pedals with it the way it is, so need it fixed quickly.

Re: Falcon BA Ghia seat won't go forward

Hi all,

I ended up taking the car to the Ford place in Newcastle. They removed the seat and said that it was the motor. This would cost a tad under $3000 to replace, but they would fit a second hand seat with the motor for $1200. I told them to get the seat in, but when I picked up the car that afternoon, all of the controls were working properly (So I doubt it was the seat motor). I then cancelled the seat and the controls are still working as they should.

Thanks for your replies.

It may be the switch contact or possibly still the motor and its likely to do it again I'm sorry to say.
