I went through the car wash, and they moved the passenger seat all the way forward when they cleaned the interior. After driving away, I found that it is stuck fully forward and won't move back at all. Other power seat functions are normal (up/down/recline, etc.) Only the movement forward/backward is affected. When the switch is pushed I can hear and feel the motor trying to move the seat but there is no movement. I've also tried sitting in the seat and pushing with my legs when activating the switch - no luck there either. Is there a safety latch or something that may be engaged?

It sounds like one of two things has happened, either there is something stuck in the seat track when they cleaned it are the motor drive is broken. You can take the seat out and inspect it to see if you can fix it, here is some diagrams that will help you.

Please let us know what happens.

Best, Ken
