    Component and/or Version: Airbag 7 Audi 0503
    Software Coding: 00106
    Work Shop Code: WSC 06325
    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 tyred to clear it but they keep coming back, i have checked the fuses and checked they are plugged in also check the under the seat plugs all of witch is OK.

    Surely if you havn't solved the problem, the light is only ever going to come back. Erasing it doesn't make it go away, not until you've solved the high resistance problem first.

    I'm new to this, but I'm of the understanding that it's normally the plug and wiring to the seat.
    I'm told that there's even an audi part number for a repair piece. Which is in effect two pieces of wire with heatshrink butt connectors on. They remove the plug entirely and replace a section of the wire.

    Outside that, I guess it could be that the airbags are shot?

    Ressistance too high is definitely a wiring problem it means electrical resistance.

    It will probably be the plugs as said above so I would check them and the wiring to the airbags. Perhaps some dilectric grease or something would make sure you get a better connection.
