Sounds like either the "back" part of the switch may be bad, or its possibly the backwards movement function of the seat "motor" may be bad....

power seats are usually equipped with one motor for each adjustment and its counter adjustment (up/down - front/back etc) , and either one switch with multiple "pulls" or different directions for different functions. Or multiple switches for each adjustment and its counter adjustment, if you have multiple switches you can try seeing if the wires can be swapped among them (plug switch one into the wires for switch two and so on) if so try switching the wires and see if the seat will move in the backwards direction with it hooked up this way, if it works then you've got a bad switch, if it still goes forward but not back, chances are its a bad motor, although there is still a possibility of a bad electrical connection on the reverse side of the wiring circuit..... good luck :)

SOURCE: The drivers seat is stuck.

This is a seat slide motor assembly problem. I worked for an Infiniti dealer for many years as a service advisor, and this was a common issue on these vehicles. Most of the time you can take the **** end of a screwdriver and tap on the motor from the front of the seat and it should start working. It may work for a while but it will most certainly stop, how soon depends on how far gone it is. Eventually it will quit working altogether and tapping it won't work either. As a service advisor we probably replaced a hundred of those things. Last I knew the part was about 280.00 and about an hour labor. I would not take it to someone who doesn't really know Infiniti though as you may get the car back with an air bag light flashing or something. Dealers really don't try to rip people off, they generally want to do the right thing as they want you to come back for all your problems, keep that in mind.

SOURCE: The electric front seats both stopped moving

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.

Brake lights don't work on 95 crown victoria

Battery power is applied through 15A fuse 1 in the I/P fuse panel. It passes through the brake on/off switch and is routed through the multi-function switch to the stop lamps. When the brake on/off switch is closed, the stop lamps light. Possible failures include the fuse, the brake on/off switch, the multi-function switch, and the filaments of the multi-purpose rear lights.
