Switch or seat motor?

Hello: The seat won't go forward, just back. Is it the door switch module or the seat motor. I guess it does move forward a very slight bit only after I take it fully back. All other directions work fine. Thanks

Should be the switch. A DC motor which the seat motors are, change direction by reversing the polarity. If it works one way it will work the other way. If it is the door switch type they can sometimes be opened and cleaned.

It is suggested to always post the year, make (we'll guess MBZ here , and model when requesting advice.

Good luck!!!
