Re: 156 1.8 air bag warning light
Will not fail the MOT as the airbag isn't part of the test. (Speak from experience with a Pug 206 and three MOTs before I got it fixed!)
Most likely problem is the seat connectors coming loose. Some one slams the seat back on the runners or stuffs something under the seat without checking. Disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins before you try reseating them, but you will still need a diagnostic system to turn the light off. Make sure you have any radio codes as well!
Air-bag system is DISABLED when the light is on ...
