2007 Focus - Seatbelt/Airbag Problem

I just purchased a 2007 Focus SX4 SES.

I'm having a few problems though. The passenger side seatbelt came unbuckled three times tonight with my girlfriend sitting there. And while that was happening, the "Pass Airbag Off" light would randomly come on, then go back off, then come on and go back off. I know the seat has sensors to determine when the airbag needs to be off, but my girlfriend weighs 5'7" 115lbs, so I imagine she is big enough for an airbag to deploy. My car does have heated leather seats, but I certainly hope the heater in the seat isn't causing a problem with the airbag sensors.

Has anyone seen this happen before? I search google and these forums, but couldn't find anything.

I called the sales guy that sold me my car, and he said I should bring it by in the morning to have any codes checked.

Other than this, I absolutely love the car!!

I haven't seen the issue with the seatbelt coming undone by itself, but if your girlfriend was moving and shifting her weight around to get it buckled again, that would cause the sensor to think that you removed the weight from the seat for a moment or two.
