Seat belt tensioner / airbag light; anybody else?

Did your car have flood damage?

What you have is not a common complaint on here IIRC.

just had the repair done---wiring under the front seats replaced ( 2 weeks out of warranty). No idea why it happened as the passenger seat ( where the original problem was) was unoccupied at the time. Not cheap to fix so hope I don't have to do it again!
