Driver Seat controls not working - Acura Tl 2000

Hi guys, recently I was looking up on the forums on how to get my seat reclining after the gears were jammed. Part of solving that issue was to remove the panel on the side of drivers and passengers seat (the one which has the reclining back/forth etc controls) to get to the gears. I unplugged the little black box (attached to the panel) which connects the controls to the motors so I could remove the whole panel from the seat to get easy access.

Now here's the big problem. When I was putting this stuff back together, I accidentally took the passengers side panel and plugged it into the drivers side. I realized my mistake immediately and removed it.

The issue I'm facing now is that the seat controls on the drivers side are no longer working. The seat heating is still working, just not the controls. Could this be a fuse, the wiring, motor?

Another thing I did (although probably not related to this) is that I completely removed the passengers seat to clean underneath which involves disconnecting all the electronics to the seat. I have already put this back and connected it again.

Would really appreciate feedback and help from those who can spare some time on Christmas Day
