You may have a bad seat switch or a bad seat motor. These seat motors were notorious for going bad. Also the seat motor is connected to the seat track by a cable, it may have disconnected from the motor. One way to tell is if you hear the motor run when the switch is engaged it most likely the cable. It there's no sound at all it most likely the switch.

Good to hear the motor is trying to move. Sounds like something is stuck in the track keeping the seat from moving. Take a flash light and look under the seat at the seat track and see if you can see anything jamming the track like a penny or some kind of debris. Remove it if you can. If you don't see anything try taking a hammer and a flat head screw driver and tap the seat track forward or backwards then use the switch to see if it moves. If no movement try hitting it harder. If you don't have any luck call me at 407-851-8510 Todd @ Sport Mazda to make an appointment.
