    Default AIRBAG light .. is thier a fuse the the Airbag ecu ?

    just run a diagnostic on my vectra 07 reg and the airbag light wont go off.. except the diagnostic is saying the car ECU cant read the airbag ECU ,.. just says 'rejected'

    wondering if thier might be a fuse or if i might be covered by my insurance to get this sorted as clearing fauls seems not to have worked

    did you install a replacement airbag ecu from ebay?

    the reason i ask is that it will have a different VIN number in it which will stop you working on it unless you have the code for the donor car.. I think the codes can only be cleared within a certain persion of time anyway. After that its best to send it away to get it sorted but have them leave your VIN number in it..

    from what i understand though your airbags will not work though unless the the airbag ecu has your cars VIN in it..

    will work nige, any errors or anything which will stop it firing WILL display the airbag warning light. only thing it might do is throw a 'environment' error when scanning with tech2/vauxcom
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now partially open and able to provide services

    does the replacement airbag ecu have the same ident number as the one you took out?
    Lois Griffin: Peter! You're bribing your daughter with a car?
    Peter Griffin: Ah, c'mon, Lois, isn't 'bribe' just another word for 'love'?
