Question about Cars & Trucks
Try unbolting the seat, lift it up, operate the motor and once u find the motor you are looking for apply 12v to one wire and ground to other going to motor... If it moves forward switch the polarity and see if it operates the other way verifying the motor is functioning well. While there check for power from the switch

SOURCE: power seat issue
Get out your voltmeter, unplug the connection to the seat's motor, underneath the seat, and hit the switch. if youve got power going to the motor then youll need to replace the motor. If not, it's probably the switch. Also make sure the wires are not cut or damaged somewhere between the switch and the seat.

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

I found this post area while looking for a way to fix my stuck 2001 Camry LE drivers seat. Sure enough, while engaging the seat motor (it could be heard making an initial clikc), I hit the front rails a coupel time prettysolidly with a rubber mallet. That fixed it!
Thanks to all for providing a quick fand easy way to get the seat moving again!
