Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
The most common cause of your problem is the power folding seat motors. They either fail completely or the gears inside them fail and grind when operating and the seat will not fold up or down.
The motor assemblies, left and right will have to be replaced to repair the power folding seat problem you 2006 Mountaineer is having.
