    Hi guys,

    Another problem I'm having, hopefully someone can help. Desperate to get the airbag warning light off before it's MOT in a weeks time :scared2:

    Got the following vag-com errors:

    VAG-COM Version: Release 409.1-S

    Control Module Part Number: 8L0 959 655 G
    Component and/or Version: Airbag Front+Seite 2008
    Software Coding: 01104
    Work Shop Code: WSC 02006
    3 Faults Found:
    65535 - Internal Control Module Memory Error
    00-10 - - - Intermittent
    01578 - Airbag Deactivation Warning Lamp: Passenger Side (K145)
    31-10 - Open or Short to Ground - Intermittent
    01217 - Side Airbag Igniter: Driver Side (N199)
    32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent

    Again, any help appreciated. I've checked under both seats and everythings connected ok :wacko:

    Will the Airbag warning light on fail the MoT?

    Not sure tbh. I just guessed it would. Still annoying either way. After much reading am I right in thinking it's easiest to just get rid of the connectors under each seat and wire them together properly?

    Ah, good stuff :)

    Reckon I still might do a bit of splicing in the garage later to see if I can fix it, as it's annoyed me for months now :(

    After doing a bit of googling, it seems you're right (should've in the first place). Won't fail on it at all anyway :D Excellent.

    have you read the fault codes before you start splicing up the loom?

    I had the air bag light on mine when i got it. had two codes one for module memory error and one for the seat air bag.
    thought it was the seat connector playing up. but it needed a new module in the end and the other code went once that was fixed.

    Codes are in the first post mate, was looking for answers on those if possible tbh. The less splicing, the better, I agree :yes:

    sorry mate need to go to spec savers :keule:.

    Thats basically the same as i was getting. the memory error one means your module has had it. the others might/should disappear when you fix the first.
