    Have you tried resetting the light, and if so does it come straight back on?

    I had a similar issue and found it to be the connection to the driver occupancy sensor. So moved the chair forward, turned the ignition off, disconnected the yellow/black connector and blew in it to remove any dust and then reconnected it. Then I connected the code reader up again and started the engine and wiped the error.
    After restarting the code went.

    It seams that sometimes a loose connection can cause this issue.

    the light will need a reset tool to take it off after any fault has been fixed.

    Other than that, a code reader will point you to the problem

    Most likely the pre-tensioner if all the wires are OK, had the same problem on the M, code reader will tell you
