Flat Battery wrecks Air Bag
For silly reasons I had a flat battery 2 weeks ago. When I tried to start the lights all went out and nothing happened. So I connected jump leads in the correct way and started OK except the airbag warning light was on. I presumed the system thought the lack of volts was a system failure (at the time I turned the key when it was flat).
I've had on the diagnostics today and it showed 2 faults. First, obviously, the low voltage problem which cleared easily. But the air bag warning light would not clear. It reports that the Control Unit has failed (which I understand is the same message if it has an impact).
Anybody know what to do?
