The second code that you are getting for the passenger seat occupancy light (in the dash under the radio) you may have a couple of loose connectors which is giving you the light. Early MK5's had a TSB about the connector/wires for that.
So I was in Europe for a month i came back and upon starting i got airbag faulty warning. this is what I got from the Vag-COM
Address 15: Airbags Labels: 3C0-909-605.lbl

I dont think this is a clock spring because the buttons on the steering wheel work just fine. Also does anyone has experience with the second code I could not find any info on that? are they somehow related ? any help will be appreciated.
.. Maybe the battery is low on juice.. I know people get weird CELs when the battery is dying. I would clear it to see if it comes back.
