Check in VCDS that the sensor reads 'seat occupied'. Otherwise if you have a passenger with you their airbag will be switched off. God forbid.
The resistance value has been checked by others before, you need a 470 Ohm resistor or there abouts.

just another twist that could be noticed with global warning !

despite having used andrew's fix of isolating the front sensor have been having a problem of light staying on when car left in the sun ; then stays off when the car is cool

found someones comment about getting the problem when seat heater is on full and the penny dropped ....with the excessive temperatures we have been having this summer the sensor is changing value when blasted by the sun on the seat ... has never happened when the car is left in the shade !
