Question about Cars & Trucks
02511 - Control Module for Seat Occupied Recognition (J706)
012 - Electrical Fault in Circuit - Intermittent - MIL ON
Best bet is a trip to the dealer.
I have seen hours of discussion on VW forums about this.
Some due to battery removal, others changed the stock seats.
The bottom line is the computer isn't reading the signal properly that someone is sitting in the seat.
Meaning you may not have working airbags.
Have a look through google and make the call, but I would just have the dealer look at it.

With key off press and hold the 0.0 button on the cluster. With your other hand turn the key on while still holding 0.0 button press the minute button 1 second and you will see the service reset.

The problem is the seatbelt latch. The wiring right at the latch and the strap are broken. Seems there is not enough slack in these wires to allow much stretch. You may be able to repair it if you can splice these wires back together if not about 160 to 170 for a new one. you can have it put on a machine and if the code leads back to the latch then you know this is the problem.

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.
