From that fix.. what you want to do is unhook the leather on the bottom driverseat. That'* the most common place for the break.

Pull the leather up as it doesn't have to come off...and check under the white pad. Usually..that'* the problem area.

On my 05 GXP it was a broken wire under the seat and a control module.
See here.....

There might be a clue about yours.
