Change the fuse, then you'll know if that is it or not. Your manual will have a layout of the fuses to help you figure out which one to try. If that doesn't solve anything check all your connections and wiring harness where it pops up through the floor mat/carpet under the seat, just to make sure nothing got abraded. If you have a meter you could also check for power at the motor. Scrapyards generally won't sell you just a seat motor, they prefer to sell the entire seat, even so that is still often cheaper than buying a new motor from a parts shop.
