    Only vagcom will tell you!

    Its quite likely to be the airbag wires under the seats.

    yep as aragorn says had the same issue with mine once you have vagcom'd it and if it turns out to be the seat airbag connections either take out the plug and tweak the tiny plug (female) in my case i bent the pin a bit so it made a better connection or change the connection alltogether. Bear in mind while the AIRBAG light is on ALL airbags are disabled, even if you find the fault you will need to reset with airbag light with vagcom.

    Dont just reset it. The fault code will tell you exactly whats wrong. Read the code, fix the problem!

    Sounds like that is a common place for it to go under the seat!
    When my Missus drive the car she moves the seat and up the light pops!! Then its a trip to my friends with vagcom!
    I think I will do the little tweeek now...
