Default Self inflicted issue

Here I am again. I was removing the aftermarket radio and apparently the terminal of the battery was touching the post (I had disconnected). Anyways, the power cable for the aftermarket radio that the previous owner had hooked up made contact somewhere (I don't know) Oddly, it only blew the passenger seat fuse, not the radio fuse or any other. I replaced the fuse and checked every other fuse in the glove box and trunk, all are good, but now both power seats do not work. The radio does have power and everything else in the car also works. I have removed both seats and checked all connections, cleaned them and reinstalled the seats but no love. Once again, all fuses are good. What else could it be?
BTW, I am still in need of the pin out for the stock radio harness.

Pretty sure someone told you where to find wire diagrams in your other post.

Pretty sure I went through all of it and didn't find it. Can you point me in the right direction? I searched all the electrical and radio related info, but couldn't find anything. What about the seat issue, do you know anything about that?
