stupid question, but did you check the fuses for these items?

Also, the seat heater elements are prone to going out....
Have you checked with a multimeter at the connection for the seat element to see if there's any power going to it? If not, then start tracking back up the line.... it's not fun, but electrical problems are the biggest pain to diagnose ghead

Open hood. Look for a black box. There is a cover on top. Inside on the backside of the cover is a little diagram of the fuses. Also inside that box are relays. Have your relays checked and also check your fuses. If the little metal thing inside the fuse is snaped its bad. However, the diagram doesnt show anything about the relays so find a friendly mechanic that will maybe test them for you, plus you need a manual to find out what each relay is for.
