SRS Light on due to extra airbags in seats.Please Help


I brought a Mercedes benz c320 Sport and it was moddified as an AMG, such as the bodykit and the interior/seats etc.
However due to the AMG seats having more airbags than the old standard ones this has caused the SRS light to continously stay on.
The Warning states "Front Right Side Malfunction" and switches to "Front Left Side Malfunction".
I have had it looked at by a Mercedes benz specialist who were unable to rectify the problem but i have read online that you can fit Car mat bypass sensors or emulators.
I am new to learning all this and any help on the subject would be very helpful, or if anyone has experienced the same thing and found a way to fix it or if anyone could recommend someone or a garage who are able to fix or bypass the error.

Many thanks in advance

The control unit needs to be version coded for the correct SRS configuration. Another option is to disconnect wires to airbags that did not exist in the car previously. Obviously it would be better to make use of those new safety features.
