SOURCE: driver side power seat won't move

well, check all your fuses and circuit breakers,next would be to check the connection at the swith, cad use a test light and also check for power and a good ground at the motors,it unlikely that all postions would stop at once and it be a motor,if they all stopped then its gottta be a fuse or switch or wiring.

Passenger seat will not slide forward


there will be bars underneath the seat that are supposed to go across to unlock both sides so that the seat can move forward and back, try having someone pull the lever and see if you can see from behind the bar that moves and figure out what it corresponds to on the opposite side. you should be able to move it by hand, release the lock and set the seat where you want it, as for a permanent fix, most seats are not difficult to remove, typically four bolts, although some take specialty tools like large torx bits, and i would imagine the bar is replaceable

The seat tilt moves forward but not back. thus I am stuck all the way forward. Is there an override or manual way to tilt the seat back??


All the motors under the seat are bi-directional, meaning you can apply power (12V) on one side and ground on the other, it will turn in one direction. If you reverse the wires it will move in the opposite direction. Quite often the motors fail, but if it at least works in one direction it's usually a wiring issue. Follow the wires from the failed motor to the connector, and jumper them both. The motor should move backwards, and you'll have to find the problem in the wiring. If it doesn't move, lightly tap on the motor with power and ground supplied, if it now moves the motor is starting to fail

Driver seat not moving back and forth


under the seat is a thin wire that goes from one side to the other it has most likely broke you need to find the secondary lock it was connected to and release it to move the seat but you must also release the main lock so i suggest replacing the wire . THIS IS FOR MANUEL SEATS 
now as for power seats you will have to locate the power lead wire and make sure it is not broke if so you can replace the connecter with an aftermarket one and it may work again

Driver side seat


I'm assuming it's a power seat, if so it sounds like the switch itself is bad on the side of the seat. The other possibility although I doubt it, is that the power motor is bad or has a loose wire stopping it from moving the seat upward. Try removing the switch and seeing if the contact points are corroded or if the switch is not making good contact.
