You see that shiny rod running from one side to the other? That rod is attached to pins that lock into the notches on the seat tracks. When you pull the seat lever, the rod is supposed to retract the pins out of the notches on both seat runners so the seat can slide on the runners or tracks. Reach under and pull the pins out of the notches on both tracks to slide the seat forward. Those rods get stretched or loose or fall out of place. Sometimes a pair of pliers can be used to get the rod back into place and fixed, so it works off the seat lever.

SOURCE: driver's side front seat won't move

It is likely the gear on the motor came off track with the seat. The seat will have to be removed and bottom panel disassembled.

SOURCE: '96 Toyota Land Cruiser (LX 450)- Power Seats won't go in reverse

Well what I saw when I pulled my seats out of my 97 LC was that the worm gear on the bottom of the track had lost some tread.  (its plastic)  also, there is a cap that screws in to the end of that gear to hold it in place, so when you reverse the seat, the gear moves if that cap falls out of place ----small plastic cap fell out in mine.  The whole rail system is like $300 at Toyota but i found a website that sells the cap and the gears for $20.  I will try to post it tomorrow-for the time being, you can take the seat out -be sure to unplug the electronics, and use a wrench to manually move the seat back and then put it back into place

Car seat stuck forward


My 2002 Camry had the same issue. I had to take it into a Toyota dealership and they repaired it for about $50, I think. They told me that it was from overuse of the forward switch and had gone too far forward. They also told me that there was a strong possibility that the next time I will need to replace the motor that moves the seat forward and in reverse.

1997 Sable Driver Seat Only Moves 2 Inches At A Time


Could be the switch, but it sounds like the motor is going bad. However, I dont know if you tried to lubricating the tracs. Some of these seats are on ball bearings and some on nylon bushings, either way they need to be lubricated once in a great while. Have you tried to help the seat to move by pushing in the direction it is going to see if it speeds up. If so, the seat motor is going out or the tracks are binding up. I hope this helps.

Passenger seat in 1999 Pontiac sunfire is jammed forward


normally the seat tracks are bolted to the floor or riser. It is possible that when the seat was moved forward the track moved over the head of a mounting bolt and will not return. check for interference between track and rail while trying to return seat.

The electric front seats both stopped moving


Check the fuse box for a blown fuse, both seats may operate on one fuse depending on the model of vehicle and the fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.
