      I have a problem with my 2001 Explorer Sport Trac power seat. The power seat actually works for a short time but stops after it has been used a little bit (move it forward and back once). It seems to be worse when the weather is hot. I have completely taken the seat out to make sure there isn't anything on the track. I've read numerous other threads about shorts and things but I'm not thinking that is my problem because if I just leave it alone for 10 minutes or so it will work for a little bit. The seat will work for a bit but then you can hear the motor power winding down and then stop. Then it will not go front and back but it will still go up and down. If I leave it alone for a while, I will go back out and it will work for a little bit and then stop again.

      Your advice is appreciate.

      Welcome to this forum! I've moved your thread into the interior section. The next time you have this issue, check the power connector with a test light to see if there is still power. If there is, then use a multimeter to see if you have 12 volts present. The next step is to use a booster pack to check the power seat motor directly to see if it works with the booster pack. If it doesn't work, then the motor is defective since it's still getting a full 12 volts from a power source.
