Driver Power Seat won't go backwards........

Hello, All:

Okay, I am 8 months pregnant and I bought this truck because of the space, etc.
Anyway, I am rushing out to drive to work this morning and my husband had the seat on his setting.
So, I pushed the #1 button to adjust the seat back to my settting, but it still didn't feel right.
I then pushed the button forward, but didn't stop it before it was too close to the steering wheel. 
So, I pushed the button again to move it back a little.  Now it won't reverse at all and there's nothing in the tracks.  Long story short, I had to drive 1 hour to work very close to the steering wheel, not safe.

Any suggestions :help:

I have had a problem with the whole seat moving forward all the way to the steering wheel.  But I was able to use the buttons on the side of the seat to move the seat back.  I wish I could give you an answer to your problem.  I have had a problem with the easy entry seat programmed on the steering wheel controls.  Every time the seat adjusted back to my settings, the seat would be a little more and more back than it was supposed to be. 
Hope someone will ring in and help you with your problem.
Dealership to look at it IMO
