View Full Version : 2011 B8 S5 Seta controls ?

My Audi, running smooth as butter does not want to move the seat forward only backward, up, down etc... all controls work except forward. Where do I start when diagnosing the issue? I check the rail its on and nothing is obstructing it from moving forward. Hoping a full seat replacement isn't the answer [>_>]. As always thanks in advance

That sounds almost certainly like a switch contact issue. Make sure the "button" is securely attached to the switch, or you will experience a problem like what you're describing. Worst case, you've got to pull the switch/panel off and replace, but almost certainly NOT a problem with the whole seat! Especially if the seat will go in the opposite direction (that means the motor is okay).

I'd assume pop the panel off on the left side of the seat and just check connections. everything looked fine but I'll plug/unplug some things to see if she starts working again. thanks.
