    hello all,

    Last night, I had a few people pile into the car - moved seats forward to accomadate the people in the back, went to drive off and noticed the airbag light come on and it has stayed on since.

    Any advice here?

    You will also need to goto your local Audi stealers to get the airbag light reset with a VAG-Com.

    Yup. Happened to mine a few months ago. My local independent tested it, came back with an intermittent high resistance fault code. They re set it, it's been fine ever since. cost £20

    snoop - alcohol on the switch contacts will sort that.

    you will only have done this if you have seat side airbags (which are an option I think on all except for the S4).

    There is a common problem with the airbag 'slipring' on the steering colums on B5 A4's which was covered on my old '97 under warranty..

    You will need to get the light re set with vag com and the fault registered may well be the slipring.

    Mmm... so a stealer it is then. Next time I need to send the car in for suminc I will get it done then - no point in sending it in just for that.

    Thanks for all your posts guys!

    Whilst the Airbag light is on, NONE of the airbags in the car WORK!... this may void your car insurance in the event of an accident... BEWARE...
