SOURCE: Front driver seat adjustments.
I just had this problem fixed with a Tech 2 tool in my '03 yukon xl denali. The seat has a control module underneath of it that controls the 2-position memory, the power seat functions, etc. It needed to be reprogrammed - about $200 at the dealership, or free if you 1) have a good relationship with your service manager, or 2) own or know someone with a Tech 2 tool.
At first I thought it was because I had a Canadian model truck (the headlight switch is stuck "on" at all times no matter what position it's in, and the rear air controls are in celcius and not farenheight).
I'm assuming the switch worked before, and you may have encountered some sort of electrical issue (like a dead battery, or you gave someone a jump, you have a bad ground, you just installed an aftermarket stereo, you used a computer tuner, etc.).
Hope this helps!

finished 'repairing' in my '00 Outback wagon, which moved forward
inconsistently, and never completely lifted the front edge of the seat up.
We like to move it back when we get out. Up to now, we had learned
we could move it forward by hitting it like a karate chop (not good) !
I removed the 4 bolts mounting the seat to the floor, tilted it back, popped the toggle switch handle off & removed the 2 screws holding the side cover. (I discovered the switch WORKED now!)
I then disconnected the switch harness & bent the plastic cover back far enough to unscrew the switch from the inside. I inspected & spray-cleaned the switch, & in re-installing discovered the switch front plastic lobe (or knob) that snaps into the handle was loosening & finally broke off! It works just using the rear lobe without the handle on.
I left it hanging beside the seat for now until I order another switch. But, also, the rear inner screw that mounts the switch stripped during attempted re-installation, which I will have to address.
Bottom line: it was a mechanical failure, not an electrical one! I could re-install without the handle & it would work. Ugly. Other bottom line: this was my teacher-wife's commuter car, I am inheriting it this summer when our new 2010 Prius arrives! It has 190,000 miles on it !

There are plastic gears connecting the track to the seat assembly. Whne one of these strip the seat will only work or move to one side. Infiniti does not sell a simple fix. You are looking at buying an entire seat assembly complete with the module for all the electronics. It will be at a cost of around $950 - $1000. Once that is in, Infiniti must program the seat to the brain of the car, only then can you reset your memory settings.

Hello....have it re-flashed with the updated software at a dealer....you might try
removing the seat ckt breaker located in the left IP fuse block for a few
seconds,or just unhook the battery for a few minutes to see if it resets
itself...sometimes that will work.
Here is the GM bulletin issued for this problem:
