Airbag light...

Discussion in 'A3/S3/Sportback (8P Chassis)' started by imported_Adambsmith, Dec 10, 2005.

  1. is coming on whilst driving and then going off and then coming on and then going off etc.

    I assume a trip to the dealers is in order? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/book.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/woohoo.gif

    A trip to the dealer ASAP - it is unlikely put a smack in the chops from an airbag would be unpleasant!

    Have you taken a fuse out recently? I think.it's linked to the instrument cluster fuse. When we used to pull fuses to remap Golfs Mk4s and previous model A3s, we needed to pull the instrument cluster fuse, which caused the airbag light to trigger, so it was a quick reset with Vag-Com. But get it checked asap.

    The electronic system on Porsche's after a steering wheel removal, used to put the airbag light on for around 20 start up's after a steering wheel removal occasion, after that it reset itself
