Without a look i couldnt tell you but i would look carefully as it could be a wire is pulling shutting it off ? does it have a memory ? if so disconnect the battery -join the battery leads together and leave for half hour then try again ,who know that may work .could it the threaded bar that the motor turns is corroded up or you could have a sweet or something stuck to this rod ,really need a good look myself to be able to answer the question

SOURCE: front seat 1998 pathfinder
I had this problem with my Pathfinder and it was a coin jammed in the rail of the seat. My coin was on the right side of the seat blocking it from moving. This has happened to me twice. I took a tool to get it out it was pretty hard to see but you shouldn't have to remove the seat to get it out.

I just finished 'repairing' this in my '00 Outback wagon, which moved forward inconsistently,
and never completely lifted the front edge of the seat up. We like to move it back when we get out.
Up to now, we had learned we could move it forward by hitting it like a karate chop (not good) !
I removed the 4 bolts mounting the seat to the floor, tilted it back, popped the toggle switch handle off
& removed the 2 screws holding the side cover. (I discovered the switch WORKED now!)
I then disconnected the switch harness & bent the plastic cover back far enough to unscrew the
switch from the inside. I inspected & spray-cleaned the switch, & in re-installing discovered the switch front plastic lobe (or knob) that snaps into the handle was loosening
& finally broke off! It works just using the rear lobe without the handle on.
I left it hanging beside the seat for now until I order another switch. But, also, the rear inner screw that
mounts the switch stripped during attempted re-installation, which I will have to address.
Bottom line: it was a mechanical failure, not an electrical one! I could re-install
without the handle & it would work. Ugly.
Other bottom line: this was my teacher-wife's commuter car, I am inheriting it this summer when
our new 2010 Prius arrives! It has 190,000 miles on it ! magikmarty

Check the fuse box for a blown fuse, both seats may operate on one fuse depending on the model of vehicle and the fuse may be located either under the dash on the drivers side or in the engine compartment on the drivers side.

SOURCE: Seat Position Cant be moved
The manual lever to release the seat is supposed to have a spring on it to return the release lever to the lock position, if the lever does not spring back when you let go of the seat adjustment lever then you know there is a missing, dis-connected, or broken return spring.
If this is the case try putting the seat where you want it to be and make sure that the adjustment lever returns to the lock position, now check to see if the seat will lock in with the adjustment lever in the lock position.
If it does lock in repair or replace the return spring.
Make sure that the adjustment lever is attached to the locking linkage and it does move the locking mechanism.
If it still does not lock into place then there is something wrong with the seat locking mechanism, and some WD-40 sprayed onto the seat rails and track might release a stuck mechanism, and if everything seems to be working alright, and you can see that the locking mechanism in the seat rail is moving in and out of the lock position, then the locking tabs are most likely sheered off and you will need to replace the seat.
Also look under the drivers side seat and compare the lever position and the linkage connections with the passenger side seat, and make sure that it is all operating like the drivers side seat.
