    hi , audi 53 a3 8p 2.0 tdi
    the other day had a quick blink of red air bag light symbol in dash , following day 3 more prolonged blinks of same light , no more since
    and light has stayed out.
    done a vag com scan and this is what has been found :

    Address 15: Airbags Labels: 8P0-959-655-84.LBL
    Part No SW: 8P0 959 655 F HW: 8P0 959 655 F
    Component: Airbag 8.4ED H01 0130
    Coding: 0011602
    Shop #: WSC 06435
    1 Fault Found:
    01738 - Crash Sensor for Front Airbag; Drivers Side (G283)
    011 - Open Circuit - Intermittent

    cleared this but it is still showing , does this mean air bags are deactivated , where can i find the location of the mentioned sensor for replacement
    thanks john

    HI have you checked sensor behind the front valance you may have a loose connection or dodgy fuse the fault will not clear until you have a good circuit if that fails replace the sensor and clear all fault codes again should help, airbags should still function however always disconnect battery when working on the airbag circuit as it can prematurely be set off and when reconnecting the battery ensure no one is in the car.
