Hi,

ok, there is a 30amp relay that you need to check. It is located in the engine compartment relay/fuse box. Swap it with the ABS relay next to it and see if they now work. If they do, buy a new relay. If they dont, then it is a possible fault in the BCM(body control module) and will absolutely require a factory scanner to diagnose

Hi,

this is different. the fuse for the power seats is in the passenger compartment fuse box under the dash. the relay is in the engine compartment fuse and relay box

was the one you replaced in the engine compartment or the passenger compartment?

look at the diagram I sent you. did you replace what I have highlighted or not?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
yes it is

hi,

if you replaced the relay, then check the fuse in the passenger compartment fuse box, located on bottom of driver's side of the dash.

this shows the fuse location:

Hi,

If swapping fuses doesnt get them to work, then you have no choice, other than throwing extremely expensive parts at it, but to take in for diagnostics with a factory scanner. it is a possible fault in the BCM(body control module) and will absolutely require a factory scanner to diagnose to determine if the BCM is bad or the power seat control computer that is in line with it, or a problem in the serial data connections
