Assuming the other seat adjustments work, and the switch tests okay, remove the seat, turn it over and inspect the forward/backward mechanism. You will probably find something broken.

Sounds like the motor or gears have a problem. You can try to find the wiring and power the motor up in reverse manually. I had a problem with a seat in a Volvo and it allowed me to maually turn the gears to move the seat back itno a position where it was comfortable for the customer to drive. I then disconected the power to the seat motors so they couldn't move it by accident. I had to get inside the seat to do this.

You need to be seated behind the front seat, move the adjustment leaver to move the seat forward in upwards position, and slide forward. For the back seat lift the bottom seat out, and you'll find two bolts holding the back rest in place. Undo them and your sorted.

I would look at the connector and see if it's loose or has a burnt wire. You should be able to take the side off of the seat and get to it.

It's under your front seat. Move the seat forward and you can get to it from the back. Isn't that stupid?
