Question about 1999 Cadillac Eldorado
The power passenger seat will only go back slightly and crooked as though the right side of the seat is off the track or something. How can I repair it?
Check that the seat belt mount (often solid plastic or metal that holds the button side of the belt in place next to the center console) is not pinching and preventing the seat from moving forward and back. This happens on many Fords, so it might happen on some GM's too.
If you can hold the buckle mount out of the way while someone else moves the seat backward (or forward), it usually starts working OK again until someone moves the seat to the max forward or max backward position and it gets stuck again

the computer knows that input data from a system has a problem,so disconnecting the battery will not help.
that is the procedure for working on it so that the airbags do not deploy.
a code scanner will tell you which part of the system,including a seatbelt latch,tensioner, or seat position sensor is defective.

No fuse.These seats are protected with relays and a seat module.The module is under the drivers seat.There are 3 connectors and it would be hard to check all these wires for power to the motors.First look under the seat and make sure none of the connectors came apart under the seat by something that might have been left or rolled under it.The 2 main ones you can check are the connector 2 terminal C and connector 3 terminal A.C is a black wire which is ground and A is a red wire which is the feed power wire.Connector 2 is green and 3 is black.If the ground and power wires are good then you could have a bad drivers seat module.What I would do is go to the salvage yard and find a used module to try.Good luck.

OK, I had the same problem with my 1990 Cadillac Deville. Had to go to a junk yard where they gave me the entire bolted on assembly. I got a 3/8" impact wrench and unbolted the belt buckle from the frame, and did the same to the one on the assembly they gave me. After that my buckle worked great. The color even matched the old one.
