    Wonder if it's a loose connection. Can you reach the plugs on the motor under the seat and see if anything is not well plugged in?

    Will it move back with memory, or the exit position?
    If not, and its moving forward normally, you're looking at the memory seat module. The motor only has 2 wires, the module reverses polarity for moving forward vs rearward, so it's not going to be wiring at the motor.
    If it moves both ways with the memory settings, that means the module isn't getting an input from from the switch, which could be wiring or the switch itself.

    I find mine will do better if I wait a bit, which means the motor is burning out.(weak)

    I was gonna just swap the driver and pass motor to save a buck...
