airbag fault codes

I've just run a diagnostic test on my airbag system on my 147. 02 plate. 4 fault codes have come up,

(code 8) front crash sensor, interference detected/ faulty signal.
(code 147) side airbag, driver. value too high.
(code 170) side airbag driver, open circuit.
(code 160) ecu supply voltage. value too low

Iv'e checked the connections under the seats and boot and i thought they seemed fine, obviously not!! i will check again. The most concerning faults are the ecu and crash sensor (front) Any ideas what to do and check for as i'm beginning to lose faith in my otherwise nice car. Please any help?

Clear codes then see if any return.

Help is to apply contact spray after you remove all the connectors and wait for a little before you plug them in. Some cars require clearing errors by cable, some just clear itself.

procedure is well explained by our member Tommywho156
