Since the air bag light is on solid it will have to be scanned. Then whatever part is causing the light to stay on will have to be replaced. As far as the power seats are concerned they also stopped working right after you replaced the battery? Do you have access to a voltmeter? Reason why I am asking is because from here we will have to diagnose weather the seats are getting the proper power and ground and go from there.
