Just bought 2008 Volkswagen Eos test with an issue of driver seat not able to move back and forth at all
My son thinks it may be that hidden panel under steering wheel that possibly had a thermo fuse for seat mobilityManual or electric seats? If electric, do the rest of the seat motors work? If so, something may be trapped in the seat runner, and pushing upwards on the threaded track in the middle of the seat runner may release it enough to get it moving.
If you have electric seats and none of the seat motors work, you have an electrical problem and the first thing to do would be to get a diagnostic tool that will save time identifying the issue.
Thank you . Going to Autozone to purchase a 2008 Jetta Haynes repair Manuel . My son checked all fuses . Under hood and side panel . All were good . I read on the forum thread somebody posted that the hidden panel under dash does have thermal fuses. He stated the green one 20a/12v was for driver seat mobility . I’m buying it today . It’s way up under dash . Will have to be out on Ramps to reach . If that doesn’t work I’ll have to go to a vw dealer .Unless he has a wiring diagram, that's just a stab in the dark. As far as I know, the components accessible under the steering wheel are relays, not thermo fuses. It is possible for relays to fail and they're cheap to replace, but unless you know which one's which and how to test a relay you'll likely be wasting time.
If you don't hear any action when operating any of the seat controls, check the instruction manual for your car for fuse assignment. If the fuse has blown, check the seat tracks for any blockages, as the fuse is a symptom not the cause of your problem.
If you want to solve the problem yourself, get hold of diagnostic tools and a workshop manual so you don't have to play a guessing game. You can find plenty of suggestions for how to get a workshop manual if you search this forum for "workshop manual".
