I used a VAG-Com cable I think that's what it's called to communicate with my car, and the SRS unit to clear airbag lights (after I fixed the fault). Luckily it was all wired up correctly so it worked for me. Can't be too sure with these things you can buy online for cheap.
Have you cleaned the connectors and cable tied them together so the connector is not knocked loose in the future? I did that to the curtain airbag connector that's positioned in the boot and it worked for me. I think I also cable tied up the under seat connectors so that would not affect me as well. So far, it has not.
