Question about 1998 Buick Park Avenue
OK, this happened to me on a 1990 Cadillac Deville. It would go back but not forward. I disassembled the seat control and discovered that one of the wires at the door hinge area was broken. I rerouted the wire to bypass the door hinge, and then it worked.
There are three wires employed to go forwards and backwards with a common, I believe.
In your car, the seat controls may not be on the door, as in the case of the 1990 Cadillac Deville, I have.
If that's the case, I would try to chase the broken wire below the seat.
I would also check to see if the harness connection under the seat is connected all the way together. It may have become dislodged when the cell phone under the seat was being searched for and the seat was moved all the way back.
This could prove to be a difficult fix without removing the seat and testing each wire for continuity, if the harness connection is alright.
Try to move and wiggle the wires underneath while trying to operate the forward seat switch to see if that remedies the situation.
Probably the motor is alright.
