The connector probably opened up. It happens in the A4 a lot when you move the seat too far so it could be the same for the A8. Reset the code and see if it returns or if it was momentary, a one-time thing.

Sorry, i have been awal from the site for a minute. Do exactly what the devil said, the connectors under the seat get tangled up when moving the seat back and forth. There is a little clip or zip tie that holds the harness in place that sometimes breaks off.
It could also be a bad air bag just the same.
