    Hi all,

    2008 Expy EB, power seat was working just fine, in fact all electrical was working just fine until a few weeks ago the drivers seat would move back for easy exit but would not return to my set position, sometimes it would move just a bit and stop.
    Now here is the really screwy thing, I noticed that my mirrors were not staying in place, I have noticed that when I use the key fob to gain entry the mirror on the driver side would move hard up to the left and the seat will still not go back in place the passenger mirror would just move slightly, I can control it (the seat) with the switch so the motor is working and I can bring the mirror back in place.
    If I use the keypad or key to enter the mirrors stay in place.

    I tried the move it all the way back then press and hold until a click to reset but that has done nothing, I also notice that when I enter without the key fob that the seat tries to move but just a bit and I am still able to manually use the motor to move the seat.

    Loose connection? I understand there may be a module under the seat to check relays etc..?

    Any other suggestions? Thanks all!

    Hi All,

    Looks like I solved the problem.

    I had found a procedure for resetting the seat by moving it rearward till it stops then hitting the button again and etc...

    That did not work :(, what I did find is a procedure to be out of the vehicle, move the seat forward till stop then press switch again for roughly 10 seconds and wait for bump.
    then select driver preset 1 and it should go to the setting, then of course remove key to let seat move to easy exit point.

    I did this and now my seat is working again!

    Going to look at a 2013 XLT today, I may say goodbye to the 08...
