It is usually one of two problems. Either the relay under the seat has failed or the heat element in the seat has failed.
If you are not electrically challenged, you can use a simple volt-ohm meter and check for continuity in the heat element. If you have continuity, the element is good, otherwise that's your problem.
If the heat element is good, you may want to take the good relay from under the passenger seat and put it on the driver's side to see if that fixes it. If so, then you have to get a new relay.
Last, but very unlikely, would be a bad switch.

SOURCE: 2005 ford 500 seat won't
I don't know for sure about the Ford 500 but in general the manufacturers don't have a lot of room for extra fuses and wires so probably only one fuse goes to the seat or seats. I would find the fuse box and hopefully the fuses are all labeled.
I assume the seat at one time went forward and backward. What can stop it from doing this is something like a rock getting in the gear and stopping the motor from moving or maybe just dying on its own. It could instead be a wire or connector.
I hope this helps.

I would expect to find a main wiring connector has some serious corrosion in it.
The fuses for those circuits would be in the fuse box in the engine compartment.
You could try running power direct to the driver's door switch to make the windows come down. Make sure you have a fuse or breaker in the line.
