I moved the seat away from the steering wheel to vacuum underneath the seat. Now it isn't working. I am 4'11 and I am unable to drive my car. A pillow won't work either. The place I bought my jeep from won't be able to see me until Jan 8. Please help. Is there anything I can do myself to fix it.
I know this an older post, but I want to make sure to let people know the fix. Lock and unlock the door using the key fob, then start the engine. The power seats should re-engage.

Fixed myself

Mine failed today (the day after I took delivery). :mad:
In the post from MikeinDE, the repair order mentions a stuck relay.

There are two (red) relays in the rear power distribution unit (access inside cargo area on drivers side). See page 472 of the owners manual.

It's been very cold here and I figured that I might have a stuck relay.

I pulled each one out (one at a time) warmed them up and tapped them a bit. After I re-installed them, the seat works fine. :)
This fix worked for me. Took each big red relay out, shook it, tapped on the carpet, re-inserted, now the seats and lumbar adjustments work. Weird!
