Airbag Warning Light - Unusual Cause

My GTV has suffered from the age old airbag wanrninglight problem.

I have taken it to my local garage who plugged the car into his computer thingy.

It told him that the cause was a present problem with the wiring attached to the drivers seat.

He checked the drivers seat and found that the cause was a 2p coin which had fallen out of my pocket was jammed up against the seat belt buckle and the seat runners causing the air bag circuit to short out.

He pulled out the coin with a pair of pliers and re-set the ECU. BINGO!!! No more airbag warning light problem!

He only chrged me a tenner for it and knocking the 2p off it only cost 9.98!! Bargain.

If you are having an airbag warning light problem and cant find the cause might be worth checking. If anyone in sheffield area would like the contact details for the guy who repaired my car let me know and ill pass them on.

Re: Airbag Warning Light - Unusual Cause

Hi there,

I have benn suffering the Airbag warning light problem for a few weeks now and can't find anyone local, and reasonably priced to sort it out. I would appreciate the contact details of the auto electrician that helped you out. I'm not from the Sheffield area but I will be heading that way within the next couple of weeks and it would be very handy if I could get the Airbag problem sorted at the same time.

Thanks in advance - mine's a 99V 2ltr
