    airbag connectors seat.

    Ok, I've recently bought some leather seats for my car. I've only just got round to doing the side airbags as I had to order a different connector with them being off the 99.5 facelift model.

    I had been driving about for a few weeks without them connected so the airbag light was on.

    I have wired everything up, but the airbag lights is still on. The car battery was unplugged for about 1.5 hours, would this have cleared the fault if the wiring is now correct? or do i need to get the error reset. It will cost 29 to get it reset at the cheapest place I could find!!! any suggestions as I'm not due a service yet?

    See if you can find someone on the VAGCOM section and see if someone live near by who could do it for Free.

    Re: airbag connectors seat.

    doubt that it's true as if the light is on then they are most likey disabled, so no different to not having any in the first place. sure u'll sort it out!

    Fallmonk,

    The MOT does not cover the Airbags, so don't worry about getting into problems with the police. I drove for 2 years with the airbag light on as I had a child seat in the front of my car and had to unplug the passanger airbag. It passed the MOT's no problem.
    My light has just come back on about a week ago!!!! Will have to check the front seat connectors and get it reset.

    Jim.
