    Airbag light on??

    Hi guys, have just been informed by the missus, the airbag light has illuminated on the dash, whislt driving. Any ideas what would have caused this? And no she wasnt abruptly stopped in her driving path by another vehicle.....although that would explain it!

    Mine are on in my a3, think it's something to do with the wires under the seats come loose. Get them wired back up and then the code wiped


    Edit: beaten to it

    I changed the bulb in my glovebox & drove the car with the wiring harness disconnected & the light came on & is still on. I don't have the full VAG-COM to turn it off...

    Doesn't bother me that much

    back home now so will be checking in the morning, whatever the outcome will be needing VCDS to clear the code. Does anyone in Teesside have this?? Obviously will pay going rate/costs.

    My airbag light has also been illuminated on the dash for a few weeks now and doesn't seem to want to go off!
    Think I will check cables under both seats to see if they are connected properly.

    Hi Abb,have got the same prob with light ,turns out that it happened after i pushed passenger seat all way back to refit glove box after the notorious left hinge repair "of which if anyone intrested won't break if you remove the passenger side end dash panel,there is a slot inside the box to pry off with a small slot end screw driver,then spray damper with silicone spray,works a treat,no need to split damper assembly and reduce diameter of the O ring".
    All post replies seem to point to a reset via vag-comm,hope this is of help,cheer's Marco64.
