Drivers seat doesn't move in any direction

Hey guys,

I had an issue yesterday when moving the seat forward. The seat got stuck and now it doesn't move in any direction (up/down, tilt, forward/back). I can hear a relay clicking when I move any of the switches, but there is no motor movement (not even an attempt, which would be indicative of a jam). Any idea of what it could be? I had a quick look underneath the seat from the front and didn't notice anything unusual, though I couldn't see much as there was a plastic panel covering some plugs.

First, check all of the fuses. This will save you from taking the car into your local indy shop to have it looked at, only to find a blown fuse and the shop owner looking at you like you're an idiot. Ask me how I know.

Wouldn't the relay stop working if there was a blown fuse? Regardless, I will check them. Does anybody know which fuses specifically I should look at?
