Hi dw327,

Thank you or the donation.

To enable us to get the correct information, we need to know the model and engine capacity etc. If you are not sure, let us know the Vehicle Identification Number ( VIN).

Symptoms indicates an interruption in the power or grounding circuits and the only relation between the power window and power seats are the grounding circuit.

Check the ground circuit behind the left kick panel for looseness and contaminations. Remove, clean, renistall and retest.
