2022 Tesla Model 3 Safety Restraint Error


I have a 2022 Tesla Model 3 with two error codes: RCM2_a118 & RCM2_a052 with my airbag light on. Airbag light and error codes stay on regardless of whether I’m in park or driving(they do not show when vehicle is off). I have not seen anyone on here with these specific error codes so hoping you all can shed some light on this. My hunch is that it’s a wire that is faulty.

There is one thing you can check "easily". When I got a similar error (I don't remember the exact code), it was simply a loose connection under my passenger seat. You could check under both seats and make sure to correctly seat any connection you see. It was the seat occupancy / weight sensor in my case.
