Default 06 Sti Airbag Issue

Hey guys, I have a 06 STI that is giving me some airbag issues. It is a clean title car that has not been in any accidents. I took it to the dealer so they could check the airbag code... The system is basically throwing every single code.

#26 Pass airbag failure
#36 Seat position sensor left failure
#38 Buckle Switch LH failure
#27 ODS Comm Failure
#42 Side airbag LH Failure
#31 Side airbag RH failure

The dealer didn't know exactly what it was that was causing this, and said they would just have to check every part of the system until the problem was fixed. They dont know how long it will take so I would rather not pay the dealership for a ton of labor hours.

I tried putting in a used Control Unit from a 06 WRX. It came out of a parts car I had that did not have any airbags deploy. It did not resolve the issue.

There is also a airbag plug underneath the driver seat that has nothing to plug into it. I tried putting a resistor on it.... Did not make a difference.
