    Airbag

    Hey all,

    When i got my a3 the previous owner had switched the passenger airbag off, due 2 having a baby there. I want this back on, is there anyway of putting it back on with a vagcom, or n e other way?
    its not the key one either which in some A3 u have in glove box

    This can be done with vag-com, however, i suggest you get the dealer to do it! Something like that, if it goes wrong could be bad. Shouldnt cost much

    Someone on clubgti has just been quoted 150 at his local dealer!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    Surely its just a few mins with VAG-COM?? Although I've never been near the airbags with my version. I've heard you can set them off?

    Don't you believe it!
    Stealers charge between 0.5 - 1.0 hours labour for this, 35 - 75, just for plugging it into a computer for 5 minutes. Also, they are reluctant to do it unless you have the paperwork from when it was deactivated.

    Try an Audi specialist with the VAG diagnostic computer. I think that its a simple operation to re-activate the air bag and warning light on the dash should confirm that it is active i.e. the airbag light will go out and stay out, not flash 5 times before going out each time you start the car.
