Air bag light on
« on: 29 May 2019, 10:17:04 »

I have the air bag light showing on the dashboard.

It's been on and off for years having been a fail on previous MOT's then it's reset passes the MOT and is back on.

With a diagnostics check I have established its a passenger air bag side fault.

I am struggling to upload pictures of the screen shot but the figures are

Drivers airbag squib circuit resistance 2.67 ohms, with the passenger airbag squib resistance at 1.92 ohms.Is the low figure the reason for the fault ?If so any ideas how to rectify ?

 



I will be able to get the car through the MOT but i would like the problem solved once and for all.

If its the seat airbag, I'm sure there was a TSB about the actual connections between seat and airbag.  But always check the integrity under the seat as well.

How can we tell if it's the seat or in the dash

Looked at the readings again presume the fault is in the dash.

All connections under the seat look ok.

If you have had seats out or disconnected with ign on there's your problem, might need tech 2,  has your car got the sensors for a car seat. They can go funny.

Because you have proved the fault is with passenger side airbag...
