I'd suspect that'* your airbag module. My suggestion would be not to mess with it.

there shouldn't be any modules under your seat.

the seated seat module (if you have them) are bolted to the underside of the seat.

there is wiring that runs down the side of the car in a black tray

the airbag module as talked about above is on the center tunnel
