Default Passenger seat won't tilt forward

Everything else appears to be in working order. I am in the process of installing the remote top be option so my battery will be disconnected, hopefully this resets it.

While the battery is disconnected, touch the positive and negative leads together for a couple seconds to ensure all modules are discharged. This may help your problem.

More likely, the seat module needs to be reflashed/programmed using SDD through maybe a dealer or anyone who has access to Jaguar's SDD hardware/software.

Do you mean the seat won't tilt electrically or the seat back won't tilt forward to allow access to the back seat?

I agree with CJ, it will likely take a re-flash f the seat controller. There are several instances of the problem on the forum. Do a search on seat controller.
