New MOT regs - Air Bag light means FAIL
Previous MOT 'advisories' are now FAILS, according to Daily Mail (!) report yesterday.
That's a shame, coz my '05 facelift 156 TS 1.8 has had a history of air bag light on for a few months, then disappears for a year or two, then back on for a bit, then off for a bit, and so on. Sadly, it's in a ON phase at the moment and MOT due at the end of the month.
Now I bought the USB cable a while back and hooked it up to FiatEcuScan - I was pleased with it as it diagnosed an engine problem which was quickly sorted out. I would have thought it would have shown the Air Bag error and let me reset it - but no joy. It runs the scan and - nothing. Hmm.
Here's my question - bearing in mind my specific model and year, how come FiatEcuScan shows nothing amiss with airbags? And would the purchase of pricey software AlfaDiag allow reset? Or is rummaging around under the passenger seat the way forward. If so, what precisely am I looking for in the dark? Any schematic or photo would be gratefully acknowledged.
Thanks in advance.
