The airbag code could be caused by the low voltage. Once a code is set it requires a dealer tool to be accessed and reset. 9.8V is Saab's cut off point for low voltage. Below that and the computers start doing funny things. The flashing and then staying on constantly is normal for any SRS code, not indicative of anything else. If the SRS light is on, the air bag may or may not work should it be required. It could be a matter of resetting the code and finding out why the voltage is dropping so low, more than likely a dry or tired battery. Ignition switches could cause the loss of voltage to the SRS ecu on its start input, setting a common low voltage code. Replacing the battery and resetting the ecu with the dealer tool is still required. The coincidence of the seat heater and the SRS code are just that, coincidence. Unless something really weird is going on.
