Hi there. If your power seat is not working it can be 1 of 2 things. Firstly, this can be an issue with the fuse that is connected inline for the power seats to work. Secondly, it can be your power seat motor that has gone out. I would have your power seats inspected by qualified mechanic to determine what repair can be made.
