    Default might need somebody with tech 2 midlands

    ok so my first serious post and i need help
    so i have an airbag light on and after a few pms with a member on here i might need to get the airbag ecu cleared.
    i am fitting a brand new pretensioner tomorrow and if this dosnt clear the fault will need a rech 2 person to clear the memory . as the car was a previous accident repair it stands a chance there will be a fault stored.
    so my question is anybody on here with tech2 in the mdlands or can anybdy reccomend anybody/ where to get it done without paying vx prices i dont mind paying but not vx prices

    I had an SRS light on my Omega before I got the Vectra and having found and rectified a loose steering wheel airbag plug I still ended up having to get the fault cleared by Vx. According to the lad who did it, the SRS differs from other faults in that it will not self clear after 20 clean starts without fault - it has to be cleared by a diagnostic device. So it sounds like you'll have to factor in a diagnostic from somewhere after you've done the work.

    if its something like a loose connection to an airbag unit/pretensioner when the fault is rectified it WILL clear itself as it scans everything each time you turn the ignition on. What it wont do is clear any stored 'crash' info from when it was in an accident.
