Help main airbag light doesn't come!!!

Hi All,

This is my first post after my goes....I live on the Isle of Man and last week I bout a 2000 156 1.8 T.Spark Veloce which is awesome...but as it's more than 3 years old it has to pass a manx vehicle test to register it as a manx passed all the mechanical things but failed on a broken exhaust bracket and an inoperative airbag light...I can fix the bracket myself, but the airbag ligt is a different kettle of fish! The car has passed it's MOT recently but as the Isle of Man Vehicle test centre staff are anally retentive at times the airbag light is an's not that it stays on but the opposite, the passenger light comes on for about 4 seconds then goes off but the main airbag light in the centre display doesn't come on at all. There are no authorised Alfa Romeo dealers on the Island so can anyone give me some pointers as to where to look, is it likely to be a blown fuse or blown light bulb or is it going to cost me the earth to find and fix the problem....I've just come back from spending months in South America and since I've been back pretty much everything has gone **** up so I need a break.....please can someone help me?...thanks in addvance as it feels so much better to let it out

Re: main airbag light doesn't come!!!

The main air bag light is in the centre display and as you say should come on for about 4 seconds.

It may be that the previous owner has removed the bulb if the bulb was lit all the time due to an airbag fault. If there is a fault with the airbag then none of the airbags will work - cant remember if the passenger airbag lights up or not when there is an airbag fault
