    Did you touch anything at the back of the column as you may have disturbed the wiring to the steering cu, does your horn work, is it an mfsw & if so do the controls work, is it tip if so do the paddles work.

    1 idea, unplug the battery for 10 minutes, then plug back in & check for errors thrown.

    If you go into the steering module 16 & 17, check Fault Codes, does it show anything there?

    What did I read recently about the airbag module access, urrmm if I recap I'll post.

    TBH mate vcds & vas5052 both have limitations & the only real difference is VAS can connect, when subscribed, to germany for immo stuff etc, but ref your issue, it would be cheaper for you, than going to a dealer, to get another airbag controller on of ebay that hasnt fired, although a fired one should still work to connect to just to test access only & try swapping it out to see if yours has indeed gone, could be a wiring issue aswell.

    Another guy had this other day & me & mate could only advise the same, if he had another controller we could swap over & test, if that didnt work then it would point to wiring mate.

    I'm getting a new controler of ebay for myself to upgrade to dual stage, fairly cheap aswell.

    Yes mate center console hidden under the ashtray/climate area, its bolted to the chassis in that area iirc, so center console out, not a hard job just time consuming.
