Car back will not move




I have a 1998 Honda Accord LX V6 with a power driver’s seat.The seat back will not move when I use the power button.The seat will go forward and backwards but the back will not move.Any ideas as to what is wrong?Any idea as to how much it would cost to fix it?Could I do it myself?

Many Thanks,



If you have a neighbor who has some electrical ability, s/he may be your best bet.


Thank you.Do not know of such a neighbor-unfortunately


Check the switch, check the wiring, and check the motor. It would be useful to have a wiring diagram. The library is a good place to start for a diagram.


thank you.
