Question about Furniture
If it's anything like seats in GM's there is only one motor for each "function". They use a small gear box, with shafts and gears to distribute the movement to both sides of the seat. You will see a few motors under the seat also. Depending on how they made them, the recline motor may be under there too.
The cost will vary, and that's only IF a replacement part is available. Sometimes you have to get awhole new seat (some leather Caddy seats are close to $2500 EACH - ouch). You can always scour ebay (just do a search for "concorde seat" - theres actually a guy selling the entire lower rail assembly as i'm writing this)
Some seats have a factory unzippable cover. This may or may not allow you access to poke around in there.
I would check for any obstruction caught up in the pivot of the seat or near the area where the shafts / gears meet the tilt mechanism. It could be anything really, but coins tend to be the majority of the culprits! I've found that trying to lay on your head to find them is a pain, and you always miss something. It's easier to unplug the power to the seat, take out the 4 bolts, and turn the seat upside down in the driveway and shake out whatever is caught up in it.

The seat position is changed through the use of a cable that runs through a flexible tunnel, under the seat. In one case that I'm aware of, this cable got stuck around a projecting seat spring under the seat. When the seat was reclined and moved backward or forward, the cable caught on the seat spring and the seat had insufficient slack in the cable to release from the reclined position.

Hi, i had this problem. If you put you hand down the back of the seat there is a strap with a 'holder' on it. If you tighten this as far as it will go this should hold it up. To lie it back again just release the 'holder'. Sound funny but once you look at the rear strap you will see what i mean.

Providing you have power to the chair, this will be a faulty handset or a faulty limit switch inside the actuator assembly.
