Your problem seems to be with Power Supply. Hope you are using same power supply for powering DC Motor and PIC Microcontroller. There will be a sudden drop in the supply voltage when the motor is powered, this will reset the microcontroller and program starts from the beginning again and again.
Try the following,
- Use separate 12V and 5V power supplies.
- Make sure that every components used in the circuit is able to provide peak current required during motor switching
- Increase the capacitance of both 12V and 5V rail. Eg : Put 1000µF for 12V and 100µF for 5V. Add 0.1uF near each ICs.
