Please can some shed some light on how i can rectify these faults.
It all started when i managed to get my zip caught in the seat belt catch, i have replaced the catch, firstly i took the car of the battery, unplugged the air bag and the seat belt chime wiring etc, unbolted the seat, removed the broken seat belt catch, bolted the new one one, connected the plug from the catch to the seat, bolted the seat back in and then re plugged the air bag and the seat belt chime wiring back in and finally put the car back onto the battery.
I thought everything had gone according to plan so started the car, to get the air bag light on, i then noticed that the car doesn't recognise when someone is sat in the drivers seat, no light on the dash telling me to put the seat belt on and no chime when i set off.
Thanks to Evolution5, he scanned the car for me today, we were both expecting just to reset the air bag light and everything would return to normal, however we cleared the faults, the airbag light went out for a split second and returned.

The second fault which was found is to do with my rear number plate lights, i have replaced both bulbs with standard bulbs from Halfords. The bulbs which i took out were broken, as i say, replaced them expecting the dash warning to go out but nothing.
This is the fault code for that.
