Mos of the time when this happens you have a seat switch that is not working correctly.Check the seat switch and let me know. You can unplug the seat switch and run a jumper wire between the two wires and try it to test if it is bad. If it works ok with the jumper wire in it then the seat switch is bad and must be replaced.Please give me a good rating as this is the only way that this site pays me for my time.Contact me again if you need more help.
