I have seen this common problem on several Altimas. You have a wire that has been pinched in your power seat that is frayed and grounding out on the seat frame causing the circuit breaker in the BCM to trip. U will need to remove the drivers seat from the car, Use a screwdriver to pop off the seat adjustment knobs, the pop off the plastic cover from the seat switch. There are two phillips head screws holding the switch to the seat. It is necessary to cut the seat material a small amount to access the screws and remove the switch. U will need to unplug the switch from the bottom side of the seat and unclip the wiring harness from the seat frame in order to remove the switch/wiring harness assembly. Once removed you will see the chafed wire. Simply cut the insulator that covers all the wires back far enough to repair the wire. I normally take a small piece of vacuum hose, split it down the middle and put over the chafed wire. Tape everything up with some electrical tape. When putting everything back together, re-route the wiring harness to a different location so it doesn't get pinched again. Re-install the seat and enjoy having all of your power options working again. If you need any more info on this or some helpful pics, let me know. Have a good day!
