This more likely is a worn out gear that spins and moves the seat. you should check the motor to see if it actually spins if it does repair the gear.

My power seats will not move backwards or forward, but they will move up and down

Few different things could be causing this; Power seats have 3 or 4 little separate motors in the seat that spin little drive cables to the gear assembly to power the action you request (up/down, forward/backwards, (in some cases the up/down is separate for the front or rear of seat) recline, side wing panels, etc.). You didn't say if you could hear the motor for F&B running when you press the switch. If you don't hear it could be that motor for that action is fried or you have a bad spot in your control switch. If you do hear it run it could be that the drive cable is bad, or there is a stripped area in the gear mesh (if you hear it run, have you tried pushing in the seat at the same time in the same direction? That would show a stripped gear area). If you want to try fixing it yourself, do the "get out and get under" with a helper to start the diagnosis; put the seat all the way up then with flashlight in hand, look (and listen) under the seat while you have your helper work the switch. That's the best way to start and then go from there. Good luck! If you do find the problem requires parts go to a salvage yard and see if you can find a similar power base (seat can be reused) or if it's the switch you're best off getting it from the dealer or you can try an online place like this: RockAuto Parts Catalog

The blower on my 2000 Olds Alero isnt working

You would need to know if the blower motor is running. If it is not, you would need to know if it is getting power and ground.
If it is running, it could be a blend door problem under the dash.

Power seat

Look under the seat to see if one of the cables came off. If they are all connected, my guess would be that one of the cable are broke. If you have enough clearance, you may be able to remove the cables (they unscrew) to find the broken one, if not you will have to remove the seat from the car. I hope this helps and good luck.

2000 alero power seat stuck

The gear assembly attached to the motor is stripped/broken. The least expensive solution is to go the junk yard and buy a motorized seat for your model. If you go the dealer for the motor assembly it is sold as a complete assembly with the bottom seat frame. Cost is over $300 . Once you've replaced/repaired the seat, I'd recommend that you do not raise or lower the seat while sitting on it. I had to replace mine twice.

The drivers seat is stuck. It won't move forward or backward but all other seat functions work fine. hi and please help..I have the same problem with the driver will go up and down and the back...

I'm assuming this is a power seat. If so, there are separate motors that control the various functions of the seat such as forward/backard, recline, lumbar support, etc. It could be that the motor or an electrical connection to the motor for the forward/backward motion is faulty. Normally all of the motors would be on the same power circuit, so if some of the functions are working then it is probably not a blown fuse.

Just one other personal observation, I have actually seen an instance where some loose pocket change had spilled under the seat and a quarter had become wedged in the track that the seat slides in and had jammed the tracks so tightly that the seat would not move.

One thing to note is whether or not you hear anything when you try to move the seat forward/backward. If you hear a click or a buzz when you press the button then that could mean that something is physically jamming the seat tracks. If you don't hear anything when you press the button, then that more than likely means a problem with the motor or the electrical connection to the motor.
