    Just had all the rear widows tinted in my 54plate A4 1.9TDI Sport Avant, halfway home the air bag warning light came on. Does anyone have any ideas what may of caused it? I want to avoid having to take it to a dealer if possible. Thanks in advance.

    Lol, you're right, had them replaced with 50's and problem's gone. :eyebrows:

    The wiring was disturbed by moving the front seats, took it to a specialist to run VAG COM and had fault removed, so everything's ok now!
