airbag light (was: no subject)

The airbag light remaining on for some few minutes (or longer) is a
common ocurrance after Audi performs the airbag system recall service
(initiated ca. '97-'98). My airbag light stays on for approx. 2
minutes after each startup, but I've not bothered to have the problem
fixed yet. I've been told that any dealer--or other technician--can
temorarily eliminate this symptom (of fault-detection) by resetting
with the VAG diagnostic tool. However I don't know what is required
for a permanent cure, and I suspect the symptom will probably
reappear at some later time unless properly "fixed". While that light
is "on", the airbag is non-functional.
