Question about Volkswagen New Beetle
Check engine light is on because you have a sensor telling the computer that something's wrong with your engine. Go to AutoZone or another parts store - most of them will code scan your car for free (a dealer will get up to an hour's labor for it). Post the codes here when you have them, and I'll help you figure out what's wrong. As for the airbag light, see if they'll scan your car for chassis and airbag faults as well. If you have side airbags in the seats, like I do in my Audi, chances are you moved the seat too far and pulled on one of the connectors. They're not designed very well, and moving the seat too far will strain them a bit, open them just a hair, and trip the fault light. I zip-tied mine tightly to hold them, and then turned the airbag light off. That (and clearing the check engine light) have to be done using a code scanner - you can't clear them by disconnecting the battery most of the time.
