You need to use VagCom (the Audi diagnostic software - available for free at www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need to buy a cable from eBay), and you can find out which bag is tripping the light. If you have side bags in the front seats, chances are it's one of those - moving the seat too far back or down can strain the connector under the seat and cause it to open just enough to trip the light (happens on the Audi A4 all the time - mine happened three times before I fixed it for good). Once you know which bag it is, you can fix it. If it's one of the seat bags, zip tie the connector tightly to hold it together. Under the seat, the airbag has its own separate connector, and it's yellow (by law, all airbag connectors are yellow). Zip-tie it tightly without pinching any wires, then turn off the light. You should be good to go after that.

Everytime I manually shift gears in my 01 volkwagon beetle, I hear a knock under the undercarage by my feet. This happens when I hit a bump also!

Has to be reset woth a scan tool that is airbag capable. If it is on due to a fault condition it will not stay off until the fault is corrected. Same scan tool can retrieve the codes. Some parts stores have scan tools that read airbag codes if not most repair shops will do it for a small fee.

You have a problem or fault with your airbag system and the system would not work if you had a accident. Working on that system incorrectly could cause the airbag to inflate. Take your truck to the dealer or professional garage.

Airbag light stays on


This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
