I had the airbag light (red one) on when I bought my car from a garage (not an alfa dealer). I told them that needed fixed and they replaced ECU.
I've had it now for 7 weeks and intend tomorrow to moan at the dealer. I'll also be getting diag software & cable over the next few days as I want to check this stuff out myself in the future.
I've checked the underseat issues and all connections appear to be correctly made (nothing had come loose).
My question is - if I get the diag software and reset the code does the airbag system switch back on? (I understand the airbag system is off while the light is on?)
Also - can I ask... While the connectors under the seat appear fine is it naive to assume they are not the problem?
Girlie Fiat driver: "You got a new car?"
Me: "Yep and I love it"
GFD: "Alfa though.... Aren't they supposed to be unreliable"
Me (looking over her shoulder at her Punto and laughing inwardly): "So they say......"
