    You need to check and see if there is power getting to the horizontal motor in the seat. If there is 12V at the motor then replace the horizontal motor.

    is there any noise at all? Are you sitting in the seat while you are working the switch?

Individual motors for horizontal and vertical movement. Try moving seat while looking under at motors. Once you find the one that is not moving, try holding switch to foreward position and tap on motor with a screwdriver handle. This may get it going long enough to move so you can reach the pedals easier.

Check under the seat for broken wires. Forward and backwards is the function most used and causes the wires to bend back and forth. you may need to remove the seat for inspection or you may be lucky and see the problem just by raising the seat as high as it will go.

You will need to replace the power seat track transmission assembly. The reason is this, they do not service the parts, just the whole assembly, it is very expensive if available so I suggest you google used power seat transmissions and see if you can locate one.

You can move the drivers seat back by turning on the power, getting in the seat and position your feet firmly on the fron flor with your back firmly against he seatback, and then engage the switch pushing back - while pushing like hell with your feet. You can actually hear the seat drive shaft turning while the seat moves back. The principle should be the same for moving forward, but pressure would have to be aplide to the back of the seat.
