    Hi,

    I've got the following codes showing up on the Airbag module:

    01228 - Airbag Cut-Off Switch for Passenger Side (E224)
    010 - Open or Short to Plus - MIL ON
    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 11101010
    Fault Priority: 2
    Fault Frequency: 1
    Reset counter: 255
    Time Indication: 0
    Date: 2064.00.00
    Time: 00:00:00

    02756 - Redundant signal path of Airbag cut-off switch - front passenger side (E224)
    010 - Open or Short to Plus - MIL ON
    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 11101010
    Fault Priority: 2
    Fault Frequency: 1
    Reset counter: 255
    Time Indication: 0
    Date: 2064.00.00
    Time: 00:00:00



    The airbag light is on and the passenger airbag off light is flashing. Does the module need replacing?


    Thanks.

    I've also got a problem with the ESP sensor unit, it doesn't seem to have and power getting to it. Could it be a faulty relay?

    00493 - ESP-Sensor Unit (G419)
    004 - No Signal/Communication
    Freeze Frame:
    Fault Status: 01100100
    Fault Priority: 2
    Fault Frequency: 1
    Reset counter: 40
    Time Indication: 0

    Freeze Frame:
    Hex Value: 0x0000
    Hex Value: 0x4222
    Hex Value: 0x0043
    Hex Value: 0x0191
    Hex Value: 0x0000

    Assuming you've tried to clear the errors, I would check if you have the airbag cut of switch in the glovebox 1st, if so then remove glovebox & check if the connector is plugged in ok, although if you have a glovebox light & this is working then chances are its plugged in ok, but somewhere to start.

    I've checked the glovebox switch and swapped it for a working one without any result. I've also cleared the errors and they keep coming back.


    Is the next step check all the wiring?

    Drop the box & check connector.

    done that everything looks ok, checked each plug... I'm going to take the centre console out and have a good look at the wiring loom from the module.

    I have a replacement airbag module I could fit and see if that makes any difference.
