Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the seat won't move it could be a loss of power or ground, the switch itself, a failed motor or mechanical issue on the adjuster preventing the seat from moving, or there could be something foreign blocking movement. I'm assuming you've checked for anything foreign under the seat that could be a factor.

If other seat functions work then power and ground to the seat are present. Is fore/aft the only function not working?
