Power seat wont go front/back

Hey guys,
All of a sudden today the drivers power seat in my 97 Avalon decides to stop going forward/reverse. All the other functions of the power seat (cushion up/down, backside front/back) work. Its just that I cant move the whole bucket seat closer/farther from the steering wheel.

Has anyone had/heard of this problem before? Any ideas on what to do? It's really hard for me to drive all crunched up. Thanks guys and looking forward to any advice.

Could be forward/back slide motor, the switch that controls it or the wiring.

KISS it - check the fuse, then the wiring for any obvious breaks (flex areas under the seat), then check to see if you have 1) power to the switch 2) power THROUGH the switch 3) if through the switch, see if it's getting to the motor
