    Vag to reset Airbag Light

    As some of may be aware i have just had my airbag light reset after having people in back of the car. And again it has come on after having two people in back.

    If i was to get a lead from ebay and the shareware software could i reset the DTC code myself to save a trip the garage every time this happens

    i have a 2004 A3 (8P Chasis) but most of the leads ive looked at say they dont work with an 8P, any help would be great

    this was the lead i looked at http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ksid=p3907.m29

    That cable wont be any use for trying to communicate with the air-bag controller on an 8P. You need a CAN based lead. Buy the genuine article from Ross tech, or check out the VAG-COM users thread and find someone close to you who can reset it for you.

    Could be worth fixing the problem so it doesnt come back again though? Sounds like a dodgy/loose wire under one of the front seats if it always happens after someone has been sitting in the rear of the car.

    Thats not a genuine Ross-tech cable nor does the software it runs appear to be VAG-COM so I wouldnt like to comment on wether it will work or not.

    You pays your money you takes your chances I guess. It wouldnt cost you anything to find a forum member who lives local to you to turn your light off for you though!
