This will happen if one side has jumped the running track. this will happen in this case. On most set ups, the motors will be on each side of the track and, if one side starts to malfunction or, jump the track, it will create this situation you have here.

You can correct this by extracting the seat and resetting the track and running assembly.

2008 Kia Amanti power seat is not working on the drivers side, passenger side works

You will need either a new/salvaged motor or switch for your seat. One way to troubleshoot is to apply a 12-volt current to the seat motor's power connections and see if the motor moves. If the motor moves (even sluggishly), then the most likely culprit is the switch.

Gmc jimmy heated seat not working on one side only.

If your fuses are good, perhaps your heated seat switch is faulty. You can test the switch for connectivity using a meter to see if power is going through the switch when in the ON position. If the meter shows no power while in the ON position, replace the switch. If power is reaching the seat, then likely the heating element itself within the seat is the culprit.

Seat belt Driver's side

I would definitely recommend to replace the seat belt assembly... The only way to know for sure that the seat belt will work properly in the event of a crash is to replace it... Even if you do repair it so it winds back there is no guarantee the repair will hold when you really need it to...

Drivers side seat heater won't warm the seat

sounds like a bad relay. Look in the owners manual or on the fusebox cover. It will not be a fuse, but a silvery looking box that pulls out. Youll have to check the documentation to see which one it is in your vehicle.
Sometimes it is under the seat in a Volvo.
check the relay under the seat, make sure it hasn't worked its way loose. if its still tight, the heater pad itself has probably checked out.
If its not the relay, and you want to save some $$, replace the drivers side with the P/S. 'F' the passenger :)
