You need vcds to clear the fault code.
I have it. Happy for you to come here to do it or I always have it with me at club nights.

No the airbag system will still work, it just wont auto clear the fault light.

I take it you unplugged the passenger airbag disable switch on the dash and had the ignition turned on before you re-connected it??

Ben.
