    I`ve not tried it on Audis but it works on others, it should reset in about half an hour, if that fails try it leaving it overnight - that has also worked for me in the past !

    its quite common on these i think, isnt it to do with the wires below the seats for the side airbags. I believe a few people have even replaced the connectors completely and jus soldered them to stop it reoccuring

    As you have discovered, it does reset the memory, but if the problem still exists, it will show the error still. This is only useful if it was an intermittent problem that you have fixed and just want to get rid of the light.
