Yet Another Airbag Light On


My airbag warning light has came on again and not sure waht is causing this. It has not disappeared despite repeat staring and if the error code is cleared the fault immediately reappears.

I have had a look at it with Alfadiag and it gives the following code;
Failed Component Code - Drivers Side Airbag
Error Code Status - Error Present
Error type - Value too high.

Have not had any accidents or bumps and have not messed about or moved the seats about. Is this related to the side airbags or the main one? Any ideas on what the problem is and any advice on what I should look at or do to resolve this.

Hopefully someone can help and any help is appreciated.

disengage the drivers side airbag and but a resistor (20 ohm) on the connector to the crashsensor to see if the error can be reset.

I've got the same fault - does this indicate an open circuit to the drivers airbag? - is this likely to be the clockspring connecting the steering wheel to the column?

Drivers' SIDE airbag; it means the side airbag in the seat, usually just a bad connection in the plug under the seat.
