    Default Airbag Light

    Had my airbag light on now for a couple of months, and really need to get around to sorting it.

    I have checked all sensors, Though before xmas, had a issue where had to have come cables replaced/repairs though none looked like air bag.

    Any one know of any one/anywhere in or around Sheffield that can read the airbag fault? So i can then find out where to go from here.

    I have a sneeky feeling it just needs a reset, but id like to know if there is some sort of fault there.



    there cars are none stop problems! haha

    First off get some good quality contact cleaner, Toolstation sell a reasonable one at a good price, can't rember how much.

    Clean the connectors under the seats, first disconnect battery and wait 5 minutes for the system to discharge. Remove connectors and give a good spray of both halves with cleaner, refit connectors. Push both front seats all the way back and locate a second connector which is attached to the seat frame at the front edge, do the same cleaning process on these. Reconnect the battery, check if Airbag light still stays on.

    I spent months trying to solve a fault, on mine, found a recall notice from GM in the States which replaced the connectors mounted on the seat frames, no such recall in Europe. I found the connectors on mine cleaned and now no light on. I had previously cleaned the connectors that are obvious if you look under the seats and had no joy at all, but on seeing the US recall notice and finding the other connectors problem solved.

    The connector is at the top left of the photo.

    It is not the front seats, that is the first port of call with any airbag light for me, Battery has been off for over 30 mins 3 times now to have other work done, So that is making no difference.

    I need the codes reading to find out where the fault is... IF there is a fault, It may just need a reset.
