SOURCE: seat wont go back only forward.
I would remove the seat, usually held down by four bolts and flip upside down and see if there is any noticeable issue on the track like something in the middle of it that would be preventing the full retraction of it.. There can also be a chance that the switch has gone bad from wear
Let me know what you find

I was JUST working on a similar problem at work. It was a 2006 Altima SE with improper seat operation. It would ONLy go up/down on the bottom section of the seat. The recline and slide didnt work at all. It was looked at by different dealer and they couldn't fix it, so it end it up at my dealer ship. Since some of the features of the power seat are working, that means that you have power going to the switch. The switch provides ground for the whole circuit. The wires coming from the switch got chaffed and switch burned up. I installed new seat switch ($150 or so for the switch) and the whole seat bursted to life. I am pretty sure that you seat switch in NG.

I just bought a 2005 Nissan Altima that had the same problem. The motor was fine. I opened the switch and found that a trace on the small circuit board was cut/missing. I soldered it on the spot and it solved the problem. You can access the switch by carefully prying off the switch buttons, then the plate. There are two screws that must be removed so that you can pull the switch assembly out of the seat.
