I have the same problem with my wife's 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have determined that some teeth are missing from the gear which drives the screw and adjusts the seat. After unbolting the seat, I was able to take a pair of vise-grips and manually turn the screw while pressing the button. It will turn on its own until it reaches the spot with the missing teeth. After checking the price for the motor assembly (since it does no't appear to be available any other way) I decided that I'd adjust the seat to where my wife likes it and leave it there.

When I look at the motor it moves just a little as if it is trying to do something. It all most looks like it is jammed. I did check it does comes as one assembly and it is very expensive.

Look under the seat while using the switch.
Put your finger on the motor and see if the noise .
I beleive the motor comes complete as an assembly.
The seat would have to come out to replace.

2008 Kia Amanti power seat is not working on the drivers side, passenger side works

You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

Yukon XL driver side seat not working

There is a seat module under the seat that reads the inputs from the switches and then sends power to the motors, disconnect and reconnect and it may reset. If not you will have to check inputs at module.There is more than one connector on it, you will have to disconnect the power supply.

The window on driver side switch doesn't work all the time it gets stuck down. Heated seat comes on all the time sometimes 8 or 10 times in a 5 minute period.

for the power window, check the fuse and relay for same, check the switch by turning on the doom light an then depress the switch, if the light dims then same is working, check the motor by add 12v directly to same. for the heated seats check the switch, its malfuctioning
