    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Airbag light on after leather seat upgrade.

    I thought I was really careful with everything.

    Disconnected the battery for half an hour before removing the seats. Swapped my old air bags into the new seats and plugged everything in and re-connected the battery and have now got an airbag light staying on constantly. I've disconnected and reconnected the battery a couple of times, re-seated the main plugs under the seats (although I know they're connecting ok as the heated seats are working fine).

    Any ideas?

    The one thing I don't own yet, keep saying I must get a fault code reader. My Maptuner says it's one, but I don't think it works as one on Vx ECU's. Might give it a go in the morning.

    Are you sure the pretensioners isnt "fired" on the leather seats? or a dodgy connection to the airbag in the seats you havnt reconnected properly?

    What year car are the seats from? It could well be down to the fact the passenger seat as an 'child seat occupany' detection circuit on the old seats and this one hasnt, or visa-versa. Had this with one of kmans leather interior upgrades... Solution he did was to swap the airbag ecu's but you can just disconnect it i think.

    Didn't even think about the pretensioners, should I have swapped those over too? Where are they exactly?

    They're from a 2003 GSi I think. Mine's a late 2004 SRi.

    Sounds a bit sussed there mate, My money is on what I said, need a code reader to prove it though. You can check pretensioners by checking the physical height of the seatbelt holder. If its sunken down into the side of the seat and centre console its fired off..

    I'll check the pretensioners tomorrow and if need be swap my old ones over, didn't think to do them to be honest.

    When John Robertson went to get his SRI Leather interior the pretensioners had fired, so he just transferred the ones from his standard sri interior.
