Check connections under the seats.

Mine was the yellow connector under the passenger seat that is the common culprit. Stripped the connector down as it clips apart (with the battery disconnected) cleaned with contact cleaner (or spirit) and re assembled. Then used a code reader to clear the DTC fault code. If you've had success, it won't come back on!

loose connections are the main cause but the airbags/ignitors are starting to get on now so some may begin to actually fail the tests the car performs.
