Test all sensors

    you can test the resistance of the sensor using a voltmeter. hook it up to the sensor and use a blow dryer to change the temperature, as it raises the resistance will decrease. for the seat, the switch must be at fault, you must have hit a bump and it turned it on or something in the car hit it
