Airbag problem. Switch error 0018
Using Laptop with new Alfadiag and USB KKL/OBD2 adapter.
I have pulled the plugs from the passenger side and checked the two wire and three wire connections.
two wire O/C no passenger
two wire 3 Ohms with passenger
Three wire to side Airbag, Black wire in connector is O/C to the other wires. (the pins in the connector do not line up)
Three wire to side Airbag, Coloured wires are connected together and have a constant resistance after removing shorting springs - prob firing tantalum fuse wire. (Note, only using very low current digital meter to test).
Had to stop testing as it started to rain !
Some thoughts on the matter.
Am I looking at the correct seat ? although the software says its the passenger side, does it know it's a Right Hand Drive Car ??
When I get a chance I'll pull the driver side cables and test these as a comparison.
Has anyone else had this problem ?
I have seen comments that some people solder a link as the switch fails. Where would this link be and does it need to have a resistor inline with the link ?
I guess if I did this, and had a crash, both Airbags would go off even if no one was in the real passenger seat (LHSF).
I'd appreciate any and all help. Thanks.
