Re: Airbag Light MOT Failure
word of advice: if you are gonna work on the airbag system , make sure the battery is disconnected (wait 15 minutes) and when fitting a new crash sensor be out of the car when another person connects the battery again. (bettter work alone in this case !)
There is a movie on Youtube that shows the power when an airbag deploys (search for airbag). There are cases of severe injuries of people who were working on the airbag system when it suddenly fired !!!
P.S. in Holland we have APK (MOT) and funny enough your car will not pass when the windscreen washer does not work, but a not working airbag system will pass..... so much for sense !
