Airbag lights disappeared on its own?

I always had that pesky light on my dashboard. Using MEC i cleared all the faults ,expect one - curtains airbag. Lights was still on. Today I start my car and there is no airbag light. What happened?
Car is Alfa 147 1.9JTD 16v pre-facelift.

S.H.I.T - happened - Self Healing Italian Technology.......

Probably a bad connection got joggled and cleared itself - on the 147 once a fault condition clears the ECU removes the fault signal - whereas the 156 leaves the fault signal on until the fault is manually cleared. My 147 had a spell recently of the airbag light staying on for a few minutes after initial start - but its cleared itself now.......

My 156 (2004) clears itself. Earlier cars need Fes and cable.

My GT does the same thing from time to time. Jiggling the airbag cables underneath the driver`s or passenger`s seat always fixes the problem (the airbag goes off the next time I turn on the car). But it does tend to pop up from time to time and it is annoying

Italian cars. They realise they have a lot of little things, so they fix some of them for us.

When the airbag light appeared on my dashboard, I cleaned the airbag connections in the boot and underneath the seats with a contacts spray. The airbag light clears itself.
