Have you checked out the wiring harness under the drivers seat, some times they get fouled up and either one of the connectors becomes disconnected or loose or you might have a wire under there that has been chaffed through on the frame, this is a common fault, normally due to children,whom get there feet under the seat at sometime in the cars life and push the wiring about.

Also check that all the connector blocks to the switches are tight on the side of the seat.

If no joy PM me back.

Does the passenger seat work ????
