    Faulty Air bag

    Not my week is it! My Airbag lights not going out now at all. I'm having my mechanic over to check vag com, what's people experiences with this? Is it a new part from Audi @ 400 ??? i've looked on Euro car parts they don't seem to sell the part.

    It's 98, I've read a few older posts on here about grubby sensors, often the ones under the seats. How likely is this to be a genuine Fault in past experiences?

    Old Audi's do not use Gold plated connectors on the AirBag system, hence they keep on bringing up the Airbag light saying 'High resistance intermittant'.
    The common place is under the drivers seat, there are 2 connectors, one is for the seatbelt retractor (1 wire) and the otherone is for the side airbag (2 wires). The best thing to do is to cut off the connector and solder the wires directly to eachother, that way you will never get any resistance faults again.
