Airbag warning light new question
Firstly sorry for putting this in another thread, I thought it would be better to start my own because it is an unusual question.
I just took my car (Alfa 156 year 1999) to the mechanic and he reset the light and left a 20kg container of water on the passenger seat to keep the light off until I get the car registered. My question is can I disconnect the battery, disconnect the plug to the sensor under the passenger seat, put a 1k Ohm resistor across the plug, and reconnect the battery without the air bag warning light coming on?
I have to wait till Wednesday to get the car inspected and I am worried that either the light will come back on if I hit a bump, or the inspection itself will cause the light to come back on. At $200 a trip to the mechanic I do not want to go back in a hurry.
