    ok so heres the run down, air bag light came on randomly, so got home scanned it and said,

    drivers side air bag ignitor resistantce too high intermitant

    well i had been sat in my car and the bat got a little low on the gauge but not any thing enough so the car didnt start but i do have a calcuim bat so know its ok even when low. so thinking it was that i got it on the laptop

    any how cleared that, and it went away, few days later (yesterday) the light cam back on and would flick between too high, and toohigh intermitant. but more crucailly the light wont go out. itll clear but come right back. so got on to the messuring blocks and this is the summery, and boy theres a few faults here!!!

    1 Fault Found:
    01217 - Side Airbag Igniter; Driver Side (N199)
    32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent

    airbag driver side "correct"
    airbag pass side "correct"
    belt tensioner drivers side "correct"
    belt tensioner pass side "correct"

    tensioner rear driver side "correct"
    tensioner rear passenger side "correct"
    belt tensioner rear centre "too high"
    pyrotechnic igniter separating "too high"

    voltage supply correct
    occupied seat pass side "too high"
    belt inquiry front driver "too high"
    belt inquiry front pass "too high"

    4 belt inquiry rear driver/rear pass/rear center "belt:no"

    5 n/a

    seat occupation rear driver "too high"
    seat occupation rear pass "correct"
    next two blocks dont note what they are, both say "too high"
    head level airbag "too high"
    head level pass airbag "too high"

    hopefully some one can tell me what to ignore and what to sort, as for the rear seat sensors, i dont think i even have any. theres no pads or sensors under the rear bench nor any wires between the chassis and bench.

    many thanks

    You only have one fault code, so theres only one thing to fix...

    N199 is the airbag in the drivers seat.

    Check the connector under the seat, you may need to cut the wires off and solder them together as the connectors can sometimes go bad.

    "Intermittent" appears when the fault has existed previously, but has now gone away. Obviously if its not showing intermittent the fault exists presently, and thus clearing the codes will mean it comes straight back, because its still there.

    cheers mate as ever you speak good sence.

    ok so as far as i can gather then the yellow plug needs soldering together or maybe the part in the b pillar is broke??

    Try soldering the wires and see if the fault will clear.
