    Default MOT Question

    Morning all

    Just have a quick question that I was hoping I may be able to find the answer to here! Does anyone know if the airbag warning light dbeing on is an MOT failure? I always assumed it was but then someone said the other day they didn't think it was !! Any help would be gratefully received!

    Cheers

    It most definately is not a testable item mate, so you're OK but the tester SHOULD advise you on it. If he doesn't ask him why he didn't and please come back on here and tell me.

    Thats great, thanks for the speedy reply! It is not booked in until 14th March but thought if I needed to get it sorted before then should do it now! I will let you know if they don't mention it! I just assumed it was an issue as it was a warning light but glad it isn't! Thanks again!

    Just so you know, the only wqarning light that they are interested in are ABS light, fog tell tale and indicator and hazard lights tell tale on the dash.

    Hi there. When I turn the ignition on my airbag light comes on but also stays on until I turn the engine off. The airbag light staying on, is this an M.O.T. failure? Thanks Neil
    There are no checks at all on airbags as part of the MOT Test

    actually surprises me given it's a safety device.

    yeah I've been reading through there trying to find whether if 1 of my front fogs doesn't work is it an MOT failure. I think unfortunate if the car has front fogs they have to work, if it doesn't have them then it don't matter
