Do you hear a click when trying to move the set or do you actually hear the motor spinning?

Ok this is strange as replacing the battery may just be a coincidence. Looks like the motor/linkage may be bad. We need to look under the seat to inspect this. It will be difficult to remove the four seat bolts depending on the seat position since we cannot move it back. Look to see if we can get to the motor to look to see what it is doing when you try and move the seat.
