Driver's airbag light

Guys, the driver's airbag light of my 2012 POP is on and I get the regular beep and warning Airbag failure refer to Owner's Manual

The car is under warranty and I will get this rectified asap but is there any way of turning this warning off in the short-term?

No, and rightly so - correct operation of the airbag system is an essential safety feature, and the car won't pass an MOT until this is fixed.

Prime suspect would have to be a failure in the boot hatch wiring; for some reason, this often triggers a fault in the airbag system.

Read this thread.

Or a poor connection or broken pin in the airbag ecu. Once you've eliminated the hatch wiring, ingest in MES and some cables. That will tell you where the fault is.
