    Ok it seems that to get the light off, I need a new module as its a one-use item?

    Can someone confirm this?

    (On the Ross-Tech site it says this)

    yes you need new modual
    theres a place on the bay that claim to reset them with good feedback
    you may also need a crash sensor
    you will know more when you scan it

    I scanned it and it says "CRASH DATA STORED"

    When i try and clear the fault code, it goes away, then comes straight back on.
