Drivers seat and telescoping steering not working

Had this over in tech but it's not getting any looks so...

Dropped my car off at the paint shop for some stone chip fixes and was working fine. Picked it up and no go. They did have the battery go dead.

02 coupe - no movement to the seat or the column. Lumbar air does work. I've checked and switched the circuit breakers. Pass seat works fine.

Cleared my codes and this is what I get:
a6-scm no com

Checked my connections under the seat.

Anyone know what to do next?
