Sounds like we don't know exactly which accessory has seized. So here's what to do. With the serpentine belt removed try turning all the accessory pulleys, including the tentioner and idler pulleys, by hand. Any one that can't be turned by hand is seized. Except, of course, the crankshaft pulley. That's the big pully at the bottom of the center front of the engine. That one you won't be able to turn by hand but that's ok. All the others you should be able to. HTH. -Jim

I agree with Js. See what is frozen and all of us can negotiate how to fix it.
