As far as the gas and brake pedal button, was that button to adjust them located on the seat itself or is it on the steering column?
what would help is images of the underneath of both seats and the plugs and electronics.
are both seats power assist?
the best way is to transfer all electronics and wiring from the broke seat to the donor.
If that's not possible, you could Frankenstein it with the old module partially hooked
up to fool the electronics. Its possible that the module in the seat was set up for
a seat air bag, but that option was not on the car and there is a jumper or such
on the module to bypass the SRS
warning light. you should be able to see if there
is a airbag on the side of the seat. Its also possible that module could control
a airbag on the B pillar or above the door or such also. If you can find wiring diagrams
for both years of cars, you can study the difference between the two.
