Fault code on start up??

A few weeks ago I had the seats out of my disco. There was a wire running from the drivers seat itself back into the loom on the car, which I think was disconnected to start with, but I reconnected it when I put the seat back in. Since then, whenever I start the car I get a 2 tone alarm (high then low), which sounds twice. There are no new lights on the dash, and the car drives as normal (it has done about 2k miles since...).

I am assuming the wire was something to do with the airbag trigger, and my plugging it back in again has caused the ECU to suddenly remember it has an airbag, and it's not happy about it.

So, 1) is there any harm me just unplugging it again (if my assumption is correct this just means the airbag won't operate)

2) is my assumption about the 'bing bong' noise correct - ie it's the airbag trigger?

3) could the bing-bong noise be utterly un related to the wire under the seat, and actually cause the vehicle to be unsafe to drive?

Thanks

I think you get a noise something like that when the alarm ecu senses a low battery on the remote but I can't recall if a Discovery of that age does it or not...

Try replacing the handset battery or using your spare one and see what happens?

Mine was roughly the same age and I never heard a two tone noise, my handset battery went flat and it never made a noise.

Was the wire to the plug yellow - as I think all airbag stuff is yellow.

Have you got an aftermarket alarm or anything like that fitted?
