Air bag issue
After being charged £50 for an auto electrician to come out to look at my recently purchased £300 156 2.4jtd sport wagon, to investigate the air bag warning light ... who informed me I'd best just scrap it it'd cost 1k to sort out.. there is apparently a fault code saying drivers side curtain air bag fault.. The 'auto electrician ' said it'd be because of water ingress from the sun roof dripping down the A pillar... whole headlining etc would have to come out would need re wiring etc. Etc.
This afternoon with this grim news in mind I've stripped one side of the trim headline etc. Seems the auto electrician was talking *********. The electrical contacts for the curtain bag I find are in the bloody boot, and there is no evidence of a drop of water anywhere.
So now i know where things are, and everything seems to be as it should be, how do I progress?
Do I need to buy myself a code reader to allow me to try to reset the dammed thing, as reading it seems 156's don't auto reset?
How do those delicate looking connectors separate I'd rather not use brute force.
I have switch cleaner etc.. any advice would be gratefully received.
I don't have much faith what I've been told by the 'expert' I'm not a particularly confident mechanic and hate electrics but will give most things a go. Or does anyone know anyone good in the Tamworth area?
Help would be appreciated
