It would be nice to know a little more info like it will go up and down or it went back but not foward. it could be a bad wire(broken) could be a bad switch . just need to get in there with a test light and see where your loosing the power. if you have power to the motor and it wont go foward or back it might be the motor. tech scale rating 4

I just had the same problem. When the seat is powered all the forward, one of the worm drives reached the end of its travel and jammed against the threaded block that it passes through. To fix this the seat has to be unbolted and tipped back. There are four tiny 6mm bolts that hold the motor plate in. Remove these and the motor will come out. The worm drive is bolted in at one end and has a set pin at the other. Remove the worm drive and use a couple of vice grips or equivalent to loosen the threaded block from the worm drive.

Most common problem is corrosion inside electrical connector to the motor. Either replace or clean out connector. Disconnect battery before doing any cleaning of connrctors. If connectors are a-ok then use voltmeter and see if B+ is making it to seat motor.
If it is then motor is defective . if its not then remove position switch from connectors , use a jumper wire
and jump connectors and see if switch operates motor. If it operates motor then the switch is defective

SOURCE: power seat won't move backwards
I had the same problem some one on one of the web-sites solved his problem by banging on the track rail in the front while pushing the seat button back after a good few bangs it unjamed and works great now .I feel like I saved at least $1500 by dealer rates.
