Airbag light fault

Just replaced modulator for driver seat (circuit board fault). Needed part number so carefully dismantled from the seat. Took part to wrecker in the vehicle (set was as close as possible to the dashboard and hard to drive as I am 6 feet tall). After installation the airbag light illuminated. Cannot turn it off. Talking off negative terminal on battery no help. Any advice for simple fix would be greatly appreciated.

sounds like you may have jostled / aggravated the wiring on at the seat plugin.
did you start the car while it was unplugged.
try this...

Airbag light fault

Thanks Gunyvw,

Really appreciate the help. I did fiddle with the wiring under the seat , as per your diagnosis,and I did start the vehicle to see if it helped fix the module with plug undone.
I will purchase a 20 pin module to fix on my laptop.
well done!
