Intermittent Airbag Light Problem
I noticed a couple of weeks ago the airbag light has come on in my 156 2.0 JTS '53' model.
After reading the forum i though it maybe the wires under the front driver and passenger seats, so i unplugged and re-plugged without any joy.
Then my best friend suggested a diagnostics, which he did today for free, as he's a mechanic and has the full professional diagnostics kit (The diag kit my mate used is a 'Sykes Pickavant ACR4' with all latest updates).
Unfortunatly when diagnosing the airbag system, the error code came up as '0033 - Unknow Error'.
We have looked everywhere but can't establish what this code means, and my friend has never seen it before.
We also tried clearing the code (which didn't work) and we also disconnected the battery (which again didn't work)
Then recently I was driving on the motorway and suddenly looked at the dash, and the airbag light had gone.
Excellent I thought the problem had been fixed, it stayed off for a week and now itís back on again.
Iím getting really frustrated, and the local garage wants around £68+ to reset the codes, on top of which we donít have a local Alfa dealer in Derby who I can ask (any local recomendations?).
I have looked at the Alfa Diag kit to do it myself, but my model is not supported.
Can anyone suggest anything?
