Re: power seat (volvoom1)

The switches go bad (very common), but<br><B>Check the switch connection,</B> I had one <B>come loose</B> on me and what you describe is what it sounds like.<br>If the entire switch took a crap you can buy a used one at <A HREF="http://www.erievovo.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.erievovo.com</A> but I will bet the connection came loose because the entire switch usually doesn't go bad, neither does the seat. They have 3 motors, ONE function has to still work!forward, back, up, down or recline, something should still work

Could be either, try the control first, easier to get to.<br>If it IS the switch I just happen to have a (good) right side switch I would sell you

The plastic side panel of the seat removes quite easily. <br>When removed it all there for you to see what you need to do
