'98 ZJ driver's heated seat on all the time

I replaced the leather seat covers on my '98 JGC. Now the driver's seat heater is on whenever the ignition is on. I thought it might be the seitch so replaced it with one from salvage but it still powers up with the switch off. I've unplugged it for now but need to figure out why it has power to it when the switch is off. Where do I start?

There's a relay on the side of the seat base (under the side cover by the fore and aft switch) that is controlled by the dash switch. Maybe it is stuck in the on position.
