I had the same problem, It looked like some irregular wear on the with buttons or sand or dirt trappped. I took the screw out of the mechanism, dissasembled it and used a screwdriver to push in the tabs that hold the button. With the button out I sanded all round the edges of it, starting with some coarse paper and moved to find to make it nice and smooth, lubricated it and reassembled. Its a bit fiddly to get back together but there does not look like anything is going to break or get lost.
Works ok now. This would probably void your warranty, but we had lost our recipt and it saved a big repair bill. Took about 45 mins.

Probably has a broken or jammed lock When you position the seat try pulling/pushing the handle instead of relying on the spring to engage the lock. If the seat frame is broken remove it for repair or replace with another seat back
the seat belt has a spring and can become twisted and not completely go back in on its self you need to pull the seat belt all the way out, and slowly let it back in it should reseat its self make sure there is no twist overs while it goes back in.
The adjusting lever for seat position is not locking into place. On the bottom of seat are runners on each side with holes in them that the adjusting lever tabs will lock in and hold seat in place. The seat slides on the runners if those tabs are raised. There is also a connecting wire or rod from the lever to the other side of seat so when lever is pulled up, tabs on both runners are raised for seat to slide. Something is keeping the tabs from locking into the holes on the runners in your car. Maybe the adjusting lever is broken somewhere, or the wire/rod came loose, or the lever is just dry and sticky and needs a shot of WD40 to loosen it up. If you can't see it and fix it with seat in place, then pull the seat back off for the repair. Good luck. Post back if my explanatiopn is not clear or you still need help.
i had this problem on my 96 chevy, basically theres a set of ratcheting gears that lock the seat in place in the various positions. sometimes over time or due to abuse one side or the other gets stripped out and the seat will no longer lock into place. i found a ripped up seat on Craigslist that was in a part out truck and bought it cheap then took both seats in the an upholstery shop, between the junked out seat (15 bucks) and the labor at the shop (50bucks) it cost me 65 bucks to fix, hope this helps
You have a problem with the power seat transmission. The 1st thing to do is make sure that nothing under the seat is impeding the movement of the seat, if that is OK you will need to try and find a used power seat transmission, the parts are not sold separately, just the whole assembly.
The plastic pull on the top of the seat may have been screwed down too much. If that happens, it will not allowing the lock mechanism to fully unlock. Unscrew the top plastic pull a little at a time and at the same time reach around and pull the lock leaver up until it is in the full unlock position. You should then be able to pull the plastic lever up normally and fold down the seat.
