    Hi Guys,

    Dont know if anyone can help me but when i fitted my Rnse i upgraded to the MY 09 buttons (i think,the one with single chrome strip at bottom).

    Since then i have had airbag light showing in the instrument cluster. When changing to the new buttons i had to repin the plug for esp and airbag light as the old connectors went from two connectors into one. Does anyone have the wiring diagram for this plug so i can check i have the wires in the correct place !

    Esp Works fine but i cant get pass airbag inop light to illuminate and cant get rid of Airbag light in the Cluster.

    Any Help would be greatly appriciated as i need to get car MOT sorted and am worried they will fail it due to this light

    Regards

    Matt

    Hold on, show me a pic of your new console buttons as I suspect you havnt got MY09 buttons, but infact MY10 onwards as MY09 were still seperate, but MY10 became one unit, I suspect you've made a mistake with wiring somewhere.

    what you mean i have to buy some more buttons ?? will they fit in this cage??

    Surely there is a way to repin the plug to get this to work ! i cant get my elsa win to work to check diagrams tho !

    to be honest i never turn airbag off so would just be happy to repin it to get the light in the cluster out for the MOT.

    Yes thats a MY11 buttons, you will be able to repin, but you'd need a wiring schematic unless you pay someone else to do for you.

    Reason why they swapped to the all in one unit, is because of the terrible alignment issues of the MY09 console buttons.

    Ok I can confirm that these newer MY11 buttons can 100% be wired in, namely because I just fitted mine to the SB, so thats that :)

    Will fit any dd cage tbh, although there is a C & D cage iirc, but the 1 for rns fits them perfectly, I know the other dd cage just requires a minor dremelling for the hazard button to fit facelift wise anyway, they look sooooooooo much better alignment wise Phil, buttt, try finding the 1 you want in etka, there's damn untold of them, you have to do your pr code checks & match up for your console buttons, tpms 1 was fun to find lol.

    If you have a mid 07 onwards then you possibly have the heater system for climate, just remove glovebox & look for the orange or blue motor/cam system on the heater fan unit right side, if you dont have, then its dash out & heater system changes along with some minor wiring adjustments.

    Yeah most dd's dont need modding, but 1 type did, only come across it once, took about 20 minutes to mod to fit, easy overall, but yours will fit fine I reckon.

    Nope its as stated mate, you need to visually check, aircon unit doesnt denote as there were darker units used on the updated heater system in 07/08 before the chrome version & afaik the ac button wasnt brought in until the facelift module was it?

    Guys,

    After messing about with the wiring and consulting the diagrams on elsawin i had a wire in the wrong position i have moved this now but pretty sure i need VCDS to clear light form my cluster is that correct?
    But i thought by switching to pass airbag off in glove box it would make the pass airbag off light illuminate without the need for VCDS am i wrong ?? surly the system should work without having to clear the controller of the faults ?

    If so maybe i still dont have the wiring correct !!

    I believe with airbag faults you do have clear vcds. I'll be back in bristol next week with mine if you want me to come over and clear them for you?? or just do a scan for faults??

    Your passenger light should still come on though when you turn it off, are you sure that you glove box is connected??
    Whens your MOT?

    Hi Nige,

    I have connected pins #2 and #3 on connector T10AB.

    #2 -gn/ro (2006 model didnt have the black and white cable so looked back on 2006 schematic)
    #3 - ge/li

    One thing confusing me is that on the wiring diagram there is a 8 or a 9 on each wire under the connector number should these maybe be the pins rather than the #2 or #3 numbers??


    Thanks for your help nige and how much is VDCS from you ??
