service airbag light

i repaired a 2006 sts that did not have the airbags deployed. however, it displays a service airbag indicator and the passenger airbag indicator on the ceiling says that the passenger airbag never turns on, even with a passenger. I read about the seat belt pretensers and the driver's side belt does not retract very well when unbuckled, is this the same thing as the pretensioner?

my main question is, will taking it to a dealer and having it scanned help me locate the problem or am i better off just taking the seat wiring harness apart and cleaning the connections myself?

You've got obvious problems with the harness and/or passenger detection switch so I'd go through that looking for pinched wires or questionable connections. The connectors in question are the yellow ones under the seat. You may save yourself a few bucks over just taking it to a dealer for a code scan.
