I have reviewed the technical manuals....there is nothing I saw that tells you how to move the seat if the power is off. The only thing it keeps saying is to remove the seat to work on this or that.
I know you tried going directly to the orange wire and as you said the tan. Both the tan and the Lt Green wire per the pic are hot wires depending on the direction of the seat it appears. The switch is the ground.
Can you get to the switch without removing the seat...and then touch the tan or the green to activate the motor that way it is grounded through the switch. Or, can you ground the motor and then try directly touching the tan or Lt Green.
Are you sure the motor is even good that it will activate?
Can you disconnect any of the drive gear ends from the seat to move it?
Do the other seat position work okay or do they all not work?
Can you send a pic of the area to better understand what you are looking at?
Again, sorry, but the manual says nothing about how to remove a seat if nothing works.
