Air bag squib????

Hoping you can always.

My air bag light came on a few months ago whilst my passenger seat was folded forward at the same time as my 3 year old was giving it a few kicks from behind.

I have just had it plugged in to the diagnostics, with the hope of it being cleared off.

Fault came back as air bag squib!!

One I have no idea what this is. Two, is this an alfa owner repair? Three, what is required to resolve the problem? And most importantly, how much (ballpark) will it cost to resolve?

Thanks for your help

Re: Air bag squib????

Hi The squib is the technical term for the connector/connection in the airbag system, normally it will tell which one is at fault I.E seat belt pretensioners n/s.o/s/ side aibags (IF FITTED)/front passenger/ drivers squib. normally high resistance/open circuit or short circuit to ground!! Hope this helps. You really need to put it on an examiner to find the fault. Anywhere the North East and i could put it on mine for you to trace the problem.
