I'd agree that the two problems are not likely to be related ... 

... if the light goes off eventually I would suspect the energy storage
device.  On one of my cars the controller reports the clock spring in the
steering column is at fault.  You can read the codes out of the airbag
controller with ProDiag or VAG COM.  

You may want to check the dealer to ensure the airbag recall has been
completed ... if not it would be a way to recover ...

I don't think this is associated with the broken wire discussed in the
"Windows Won't Work" thread.

Airbag light comes on when car is started and won't turn off.  Then
sometimes it randomly turns off after driving for a while.  Any suggestions?
