Default Third Row Seat won't engage properly

I can't get my third row seat to full engage. I goes up about halfway and then stops. If you push the button again, it starts to fold flat.

Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks

This is something that you should go to the dealer to correct. It will likely require a switch adjustment. Another possibility is that something (debris) is jamming the mechanism.

Try WD-40, it fixes just about everything. My kids spilled so much juice and crapin my seat mechanisms its like glue in there. I just sprayed a can in there and in a dry or two back to normal. That stuff can disolve almost anything.

I had this problem diagnosed by cadillac as a failed module. I purchased the part to do it myself and save the $400 in labor, however, I am unable to get the seat up manually. Anyone know how to release the seat to raise it manually?

of course, cadillac got it wrong. when i got the seat apart finally, it turns out the screw mechanism for the driver's side part of the seat slide is broken. the bad news is that you have to by the entire seat rail, motor and everything to replace it. if anyone has a rear seat problem, let me know. i have become a self taught expert on how the thing operates.

pictures of the broken gismo will help the next guy bigtime.

if it is metal, go to a welding shop,
if plastic there are solvents that can adhere the pieces.

however, i have no clue what this part is so
take my off-the-wall suggestion with a grain of salt.

lol
