Answer
Hello Lewis:
Sorry about your car.  You are correct.  the flash code is indicating a fault in the passenger side seat belt buckle pretensioner.  This can be anything from a poor connection under the seat to a bad seat belt pretensioner to a bad control unit.  Most likely it will be one of the first 2 things.  I would suggest you reboot the connector to the buckle pretensioner (this one will be hard to do as it is located under the seat).  You need to make sure you are rebooting the correct one.  If that does not remedy it, I would recommend replacing it

Good luck
