My '93 Taurus power driver seat stopped working very suddenly.
My wife and I are radically different in stature, so every time we go to
drive the vehicle after the other one has driven it, it has to be
adjusted from all the way back to nearly all the way forward, or vice
versa. It has worked flawlessly ever since we bought the car from some
friends about a year ago.
It worked fine yesterday, I also used the tilt controls to recline the
seat slightly so I could take a catnap while waiting for her to come out
of her office.
This morning she went out to go to work and the seat controls were
totally dead -- no hum, buzz, nada. The seat wouldn't adjust in any of
the four parameters (forward/backward, height, forward tilt, rear tilt).
We're both limited physically so I enlisted some help tonight to look at
it; a friend checked all my fuses and there didn't appear to be a blown
I find it doubtful that the motor has gone out -- isn't there more than
one motor involved for the different adjustments?
I'm wondering whether I might have pulled a plug or cable loose while
doing the seat tilt adjustment, which I don't normally use that much
(like I say, I can't really get down there to look, but it's certainly
possible that there's trash or other objects underneath there).
If you have a suggestion, please post it here and/or e-mail me at:

Thanks in advance.
