Default 02511 seat occupied code?

It’s a 2006 Vw Jetta tdi automatic

I keep getting error code
02511- Control module for seat occupied recognition (j706)
012- electrical fail in circuit- mil on
02511- Control module for seat occupied recognition (j706)
008- implausible signal - mil on


I’ve looked and I’m assuming there is no fix other then replacing the seat?
Am I to assume it’s the passenger seat ?
And is it usually the connectors (which I’ve cleaned) or it can be anywhere down the line ?

Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this?
I swapped the seat out with another one from my other car that I know is good and still I can’t reset the light using vagcom? Any suggesions ?

Did the seat that you've swapped had the same module like your old seat? (located under the seat), if not, Vag-Com might not clear the error. Also, sometimes it takes two-three attempts to clear an airbag error with Vag-Com.
Another option (that worked in my case): open the hood, and look at the passenger side hood hinge, there are wires going from the chassis to the hood (warming up the windshield nozzles in the winter). Undo the insulation and more than likely you will find out some/all are broken, creating a short (cheap VW using harnesses that are too short). Repair them and then re-set your airbag error. There was a recall for the seats, due to one of the under-seat airbag wires being too short. You might want to check for that too, while you have the seat removed from the car.

I did two things.
The seat I swapped was from another 06 of mine and module looked the same only difference is it was not a heated seat which I don’t think would affect it.
The other was I took the harness out of a completely different seat and swapped them and still had the issue.
I’ll look at the hood. I’ve just spent a lot of time so I’d appreciate any input. Basically it always comes immediately right back.

I checked out the hood hinge and no cracks in the wire. And yea it had the same module. Was there a specific type of procedure to try and erase the code ? Or can the airbag ecu be bad?
