Airbag light

Sorry for creating one airbag light thread more. I couldn't find an answere to a question that is bothering me. My airbag light went on yesterday. I found the cable to connect the tester, the problem is that I don't have a suitable cable my self. Has anybody any clues where to get one?

The other thing that bothers me is that the workshop manual states that you can't delete the pretensioner code more than two times. Has anybody had this happening? As I have read from previous threads that the tensioner is the most usual reason for the light to come on. The question is, does the connection problem in the wire equal the case the workshop manual refers to? What I mean is, you have connection problems three times and on the third time you have to change the ECU?

Hopefully I'm wrong in my assumption.

I reset my airbag light with Alfadiag dozens of times last year after I thought my pre-tensioner wiring had failed. I tried all the usual fixes for this problem but it got worse and eventually I was resetting it everyday and took it in to my local Alfa specialist. It took him a day to diagnose the clock mechanism in the steering wheel and change it. Cost about 300. Didn't need a new ECU and there are no fault codes anymore.
