I had a problem with the motor not working. It made a humming noise but didn’t move the seat, but if it was out of the car and didn’t have a load, it would operate. Is it making any noises or when you push the button it just doesn’t do anything?

No it doesn't do anything. I saw another website where it said there might be a loose wire in an electrical box under the seat I think. I would hope Ford would know how to check it.

My suggestions?

Check the fuse under the hood. If that pans out, remove the plug under the seat and check with a meter for voltage. If you have 12v there, then likely the seat base is faulty, or the gears are broken.

Used seat bases are around $100 on ebay. So if Ford wants to charge you $500+ or so to install one, i'd pass and do it yourself...if you can.

Thanks for the info. It's at Ford right now so will post when and if I get it back fixed.
