airbag warning light is on

Hi everybody. Just joined the group. Got a 2004 WRX with about 47K miles on it. One day the airbag warning light came on and wouldn't go off. Dealer tweaked something and it went off...That was 3 months ago and now the light is back on and will not go off. Anyone had this problem before? Does the warning light necessarily mean the airbag isn't working? Driver's side only?

I'm hoping to avoid paying the dealer or anyone $100+ per hour to find the problem and fix it.

Thanks a lot for any advice.

my 03 wrx used to do it quite alot,i used to find that unplugging the big yellow conector under the drivers seat and then after 10 seconds re conecting it would instantly solve it,i didnt think a 100 bill was worth solving it permanently
