    Check the switch, swap from the other side. Check under the seat as there should be a connector under there somewhere.

    Papz: Can you provide some update on this issue? Have exactly the same problem... The connectror under the seat is a huge one and if you disconnect it without removing one of the battery connectors, the airbag light will stay on when you start up the car.

    I had similar issue with my drivers side heated seat. I swapped out the switch from the passenger side and it worked for a while then stopped. Closer inspection inside the switch showed that the main power track was lifting off the board and snapping. I suspect a short in the heated seat pad but VX have quoted £380 to replace both pads in the drivers seat.

    The switches are not interchangable from L/R but you can open them - and then the PCB can be moved from one switch to another.
    This worked for me. Now I have to wait for lower temperature to find out if the pads are working too.
