    Run a check on it.

    Comes back with 01221 crash sensor side airbag
    . 011 open circuit. Drivers side

    Anyone up to speed with these not that great with electrics on cars.

    Where is this sensor situated on the car.

    Im guessing open curcuit is its not connected in some way.

    Cheers

    Just check the seat harness plugs.

    If you have recently slide the seat all the way back it may have a loose connection and this is a common issue on most VAG cars.

    Once done clear the fault and do a recheck of the system
