I helped D4T_POM with his a few months back, he dug out a service bulletin regarding the rear door airbags, and the connector between the chassis and door is known to have high resistance issues and the loom is to be replaced.

Of course there are ways around this if you do not wish to retain the airbag functionality, that however is your own decision!

Hi! I've done that sometime ago when i wanted to pull out the error codes, took a look and the firing circuit and it was too high. not by much but still.
Since I don't occupy those seats to often and got told that the rear side door airbags are a hazard to children because the airbags are known to break legs and cause serious damage to them. I know there a way to turn them off simply. I've been looking around but no luck.
