    are you using a genuine ross-tech dongle. i've reset airbag lights that some ebay dongles can't

    if you can see the control module in vag-com i don't think it'll be the module that's faulty

    update

    i did send it for a repair, in fact had to send it 3 times , every time it came back , we connected it and it still said internal module error, after 3 go's they gave me the money back(£80).
    i got a new unit from the stealers for £330, had it fitted and codded toady and for the first time since i bought the car i have NO stupid AIRBAG light on, £400 lighter but happy.

    Hi.
    I have an airbag light on, i've checked all the under seat plugs and cleared codes with VAG-COM (proper ross-teck) but they came on again.

    2 Faults Found:
    00589 - Airbag Igniter 1: Passenger Side (N131)
    32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent
    00588 - Airbag Igniter: Driver Side (N95)
    32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent

    I think the car may have been in a crash in the past so mabe somthing need resetting or changing. Both airbags ar ok and pluged in but i duno about the module.

    Any help welcome.
    Olly

    Olly,
    The problem is down to the connectors under the seats. Newer cars use gold plated connectors that resolve the High Resistance issue.
    The only thing you can do is the following -
    Directly solder the wires together.
    There should be 2 connectors, one with 1 wire and one with 2 wires.
    Cut the plugs off and solder the wires together, insulate with tape to prevent a short.
    Make sure your ignition is off and that the soldering iron is earthed to the chassis, most soldering irons have the ability to do this, will prevent any accidential airbag deployments.
    I have done this to my car and the airbag light have never come back.
    Should take about 20 mins per side. You might have to remove the front seat runner connection to allow you to hinge the seat back to access the wires, otherwise if you have small hands you might be OK.
    Jim.

    :o.k: thanks for that. I take it you can never take the front seats out after doing this?
    So the plugs may look pluged in but still do not have a good enough conection?

    The connection on the plugs cause the High Resistance fault.

    You can remove the seats if required, however you will have to re-solder the wires back together!
