Default 2004 Accord Seat Help

I need some help please. On my 04 accord, I have manual seats back and
forth, but electric up and down. I'm 6'4" and I always have it down all the
way to fit. My 5'1" wife borrowed the car and raised it all the way up and
guess what... it quit. It's not the fuse, but the side button no longer
works. I can barely fit in the damn thing now! Any ideas on what to try?
I checked the connections under the seat as best I could, no luck. I really
don't care about it working, but is there any way to manually crank it bank
down? Thanks, I'd appreciate any help!! I can't steal her car, it's even
smaller.

The service (Helm's) manual will tell you how to remove the seat
altogether; surely from that point you can figure out a way to manually
lower the seat. Good luck.

There is a good chance that either the switch failed or the motor all
together. It can be common that if a seat is often changed extreme
distances, that the motor could burn out. You will probably not be
able to manual adjust the seat, so I would suggest adjusting the
steering wheel all the way back and get to the dealer. Sucks, I know.
