Hello, did you check for voltage at the fuse circuit? Use a testlite. Let us know exactly which fuse you checked and the location. My info showed several fuses and a circuit breaker for the seat.

CB3 should be the circuit breaker for the driver seat. If you look at your owners manual, it should give you the fuse labels and locations.

Again, did you use a testlight or something to check that the fuse circuit is hot???? Even if the fuse or circuit breaker is good, if there is no voltage to the circuit, it won't matter, the circuit is dead.

I have a 07 Chevy Tahoe. The Drivers seat stopped working. I have checked all fuses and wires, so I got a new seat module and took it to the Chevy place to get programmed. Still did not work. I took the seat out and hooked a power probe up and nothing. I unhooked the seat module and it worked. Now I have the seat back in the truck and sometimes it works and sometimes it don't with the power probe. So confused

Sounds like you have an issue with the motor in the seat. Have the draw checked to see how much voltage it takes to make it work

Also, what we came up with that code is that the track is bad. We gotta new track still does not work. Took the entire seat and put it in another truck and it worked fine. There has to be something wrong in the truck itself.

When I press the circular button to adjust the lumbar, the lumbar position does not change. Although I hear a click each time I press down on a position (up, down, left, right).

If you can hear clicking it may be the gear is broken or cable or both. This has to have seat come apart and see what problem is. See picture.

The back lifter on my 07 Chevy Tahoe seems to be stuck or just not working. I can hear it click when I press the switch up and down, but it will not move. It would not be so bad if the seat was in a position that was tolerable, but it is cranked all the way in the up position and my head is almost touching the ceiling of the vehicle. I have also noticed that it seems to no slide back as far as I would think it should. All of the other functions work, the front of the seat lifts up and down fine. Thanks for any help in advance!

If its making a clicking sound sounds like a worn gear or cable. I would remove the seat and do a good inspection under it.

The heated/power seats are run off circuit breakers for the most part. There are two fuses in the interior fuse panel (DDM and PDM) that power the drivers side and passenger side door modules. Check the guide below on testing wiring and the diagrams for the seat wiring. Let us know what you find.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

By not working I mean no movement for either the direction switch or the lumbar switch. However, the memory mode selection switch 1 - 2 does work and the seat changes position between the two. Also, the seat heater works. The passenger seat works fine. I've already replaced the switch, checked the fuses, and cleaned the contacts on the control module under the seat.

Update: I've made some progress. The image attached shows that if I run a jumper between these two points the seat works. The main harness orange wire carries 12.4 volts, but the orange wire voltage is only 11.5 at the switch. Any insight on what the problem may be?

You have resistance in that wiring from these two points. It appears that is from the main connector to the switch? If you are getting lower voltage at the switch then I would just cut the orange wire between those two points and make your jumper wire permanent. If you want to confirm this you can disconnect those two wires and measure resistance but you pretty much have already confirmed it.

Normally we are giving instruction to do what you have already done so you have already figured this out. So again, I would just make your jumper wire permanent by cutting the wires and splicing on the new wire. Let me know if you need help with that.

Good work!
