Question about Cars & Trucks
That's an odd one. Likely something was disconnected and forgotten about. Look for a hidden connector that may have gotten pushed off to the side, or look for any wires that may have gotten pinched or damaged. Beyond that, if it just won't start (turn over with the key ), then look at the tightness of the battery posts if you disconnected them when doing the job. Beyond that, it's mere guesswork.

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy Impala won't start
If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

Passenger side of the fender under the hood - check the fuse relay box - about $12.00 a piece - they do go bad from time to time.
exchange the power lock relay with another one and test the locks.
then put the relay back and go to the autostore.

Turn the key to "on" and let the light flash. It should stop flashing after about ten to twenty minutes. Once the light is on steady, turn it off, then start the car. I usually put another battery on jumper cables attached to the cars battery so it does not run down and die before the system re-arms.

It's very likely a broken wire to one of the serveral heating pads in the seat. The next possibility is the heater module which is located under the seat.
When I fixed the heated seat on my Pontiac Bonneville, I just pulled the seat out of the car. The heated seat wires are pretty obvious when you can see under the seat. I had an obvious broken wire that shorted against the seat spring. I repaired that had had resistance in the seat circuit. It turns out that my heater module was also bad. I switched it with the passenger seat and it works fine now. The module is about $80-100.
