THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF THIS IS THE SEAT SWITCH (WIGGLE THE SWITCH WHILE YOU TRY TO MOVE THE EAT), IF THAT DOESN'T FIX IT U WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE POWER SEAT TRANSMISSION, A VERY EXPENSIVE PART, SO TRY THE SWITCH 1ST.

There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless

SOURCE: how do i remove the
You just have to get the bolts out. The rear bolts can be somewhat difficult when the seat is back and will not move forward. In this case, remove the front bolts first. Then you will probably have to use a wrench to get to the rear bolts. There is usually not enough room to get a ratchet and socket in there.
NOTE: GEARWRENCH makes ratcheting wrenches that are perfect for jobs like this one. They give you the convenience of a ratchet, while providing you with the clearance of a wrench. For more information on this go to gearwrench.com.
Anyway, to get enough clearance for the bolt to come all the way out, (or the nut to come all the way off if your Cougar uses nuts in the rear) you may have to work both rear fasteners at the same time and tilt the seat forward as you go (Which is why we took the front bolts out first). This is especially true if you are using a box-style wrench. Be sure to loosen each bolt incrementally so the seat CAN be tilted to avoid getting your wrench trapped.
Once all the bolts are out, you can tip the seat backward to access the wiring connectors under the seat to disconnect them.

That happen to me, and A guy helped me. The problem maybe down by the brake pedal, but above the brakes you may have pulled the wires a loose with your feet, or something and the wires need to be put back together maybe with black electrical tape. Definitley have to go down to the floor, and look under where the brake pedal is.

That happened once in a Datsun pick up I had. A friend took the boot off of the gearshift and found something had come loose and pushed it back into place.
