Thumbs down 2009 VW Jetta City - 00589 AirBag Code

Just bought a 2009 Jetta City. The code was 00589 for the airbags. I thought it was the airbag itself. I swapped the old one for a new one. Code went away for a few seconds. Retested, it came back.
The fault code is: 00589 - Igniter 1 - Passanger Side [N131] - Short to Ground.

So 2 airbags, the same code, any ideas?

Would it be the ACM? The wires in the back of the dash look fine.

Please help!
