Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This code is for the occupant classification system sensor performance which could be the sensor itself or wiring. The module is a possibility but not likely. It's likely that you bought a replacement seat that also has an issue with the sensor.

Was the wiring tested before the seat was replaced?

Did you inspect connector terminals?

Was the light on constantly beore the seat was replaced and went away immediately when it was installed?
