2007 Hyundai Azera Ltd U/E 3.8 v6 61298 mi.
While driving along, (both hands on wheel) the power seat back actuated and pushed me forward. The seat would not move
although I felt that there was electrical power reaching the motor. But the seat would not fold back.
I drove to the dealer in a hunched over position . When I got there, I tried the following: held switch in forward position a few seconds, then in backward position for a few seconds. The car ‘beeped’ at me. After another repetition of this the switch and seat back began to operate ‘normally’.
The diagnosis came down as ‘switch and/or limit switch/sensor’ were no good but the limiter portion was integrated in the power seat track assembly,
a $2300.00 part.
The manufacturer agreed to supply the track assembly but I will have to pay $670. for other parts, diagnosis, labor.
I read of 2 similar cases (same year and model)at Hyundai Forum,in one case I don’t know what ensued, in the other they merely replaced a switch.
I actually thought about getting an extended warranty or a new car as the car neared 60,000 (end of manuf. warranty).
I guess a warranty is less than a car, but are there good warrantees out there?
Any informative comments would be appreciated.
