gears are probably not engaged. take the seat out, see if the motor drive gear is still within the teeth of the seat rail. if not, force it in. Easy to take out, 4 bolts and the seat comes up and out.

you are no doubt correct about the cause of the problem ,but the soloution?? well if the water can gat in then let it out ??stupid ?? i know but what i would do to prevent rust and corrosion which is a inspection failure then i woul drill two 1/2 inch holes either side of the rear floor well on the outside so whatever way car is parked on camber of road the water can run out

I had this same problem - 2 things to check:
Most likely it's the 3rd brake light - check the seal on the inside (you need to remove the black plastic cover inside the boot lid to be able to see - this has 4 or 6 little tabs that hold it in place and break very easily, so take care as you remove it. I suggest using a blunt knife or similar to ease it out). I had mine replaced not that long ago and as far as I can recall they're pretty inexpensive.
Also check the rubber seal that goes all the way round the boot opening, make sure it's attached all the way round and has no defects.
Hope that helps!
