Can you tell if one of the switches is stuck? An example would be the seat moves all the way forward and just keeps going. Perhaps one of the air pumps is stuck on. Just go threw all the switches and see if they work in both ways. Also, check all the wires under the seat to make sure somethings not grounded out. Also possible the relay is stuck closed.

Sorry, I forgot to mention none of my switches work at all. Is the relay located under the seat?

Hmmm, I think that might be under the hood on the fire wall. But I can't remember, and can't go check right now, leaving on a trip soon.
