Hello and welcome to
We most likely have a problem with the seat module not controlling the rise and fall. Pin 3 and 4 of the 10 way black connector white/blue and yellow/green wires at the module. You can jump power and ground to the wires to move the seat. Reverse the wires to move the seat in the opposite direction.

The seat module is the thing you control the seats movement? I took that off to see but I think that's not what your saying. Where

Do you have step by step instructions on how to reverse the wire to make it move back
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
We will need to jump power and ground to those wires. We can try going right to the battery or the heelboard fuse box located behind the carpet cover in between the rear seat and floor. JUmp one of the seat wires to power and the other to ground and the seat should move. then swap the wires to move the seat in the other direction.
