There was a TSB for that igniter ( I have a 2000 V6 which had the code but for the passenger side. The fix was simple, there is a connector underneath the seat (yellow connector IIRC) that just joins the wiring from the seat to the wiring of the car. For some reason that connector fails. Cut out the connector and splice the wires together; NOTE; take note of which wires and colors match up in the connector BEFORE you start cutting, the wires from each side may not necessarily match up, if I recall, white matched up to white but then it was something weird like blue matches to brown or something like that. Wrap it in electrical tape; clear the code and you should be good to go.
