How do i fix the drivers seat back on my 2003 kia sorento

If it's a power seat, it's most likely the switch, but possibly the motor. If it moves one direction only, I would say switch. Neither direction would suggest the motor.

The heater dose not working in kia sorento 2006

Kia tends to have rather poor heater control switches and motors. If your car has manual dials, then check any cables and fixings on the back of the control panel. These cables can come loose and fail to push and pull the armature on the heater matrix valve. If the car has an electronic climate control, then check the electric motor on the heater matrix valve as it may have failed.

Power seat will not move forward or backward

check seat switch for power with test light then check seat motor for power using switch. If power at switch and not going to seat then switch is bad. If no power to switch then check power lead and trace back to supply point

Driver seat will not move forward, all other directions are fine.

The guide track is most likely being obstructed. Throughly search for the blockage.

Driver's seat not moving 2006 Navigator

Most seats have more than one motor anymore depending on the features, if it raises/lowers but will not go forward/backward or will only go in one direction (moves forward but not back) its likely you have a faulty motor. If nothing is working check your fuses first then check the switch.
