Default 2003 Accord - Driver's Seat Stuck

My wife likes to drive with the seat close the the wheel. I prefer a bit
more room. We usually toggle the seat back and forth to our preference.
The driver's seat is now stuck in one position and will not adjust. The
toggle switch appears to work, the motor makes a slight noise, but there is
no movement. I don't think this is an easy fix, but any advice is welcome.

Check to see if there's a floor mat or something else impeding the seat's
movement on its track.

If there's nothing interfering with the track, the motor, the track or its
apparatus needs attention. This may in fact be an easy fix, but there's no
way to tell for sure unless somebody actually looks at the mechanism.

Your wife should sit no closer to the wheel than that necessary to have the
elbow very slightly bent when the hand is at the 12:00 position. As that
warning sticker says on your sunvisor, airbags are literally a killer if
you sit too close.

The current generation airbags are MUCH safer than first generation
airbags. Second generation airbags went into service in 1998. It is
very unlikely that the airbag, by itself, would cause a fatality to an
adult regardless of seat position.

My 5' 1" daughter had a 1999 airbag go off in her face resulting in a
little abrasion but no other injury.

Your wife should sit where her visibility and access to controls are
optimized and not worry about the airbag.

The seat, well, be prepared to buy a new motor unless you are lucky
enough to find some easily removed obstruction.

Every time that happens in my Audi, it's a coin or a pen or something
that she has dropped that naturally finds it's way into the seat
track.
