Re: GTV Airbag warning light
I finally had airbag light problem couple of weeks ago (had the rest of common GTV faults - so not surprised this one finally got me!).
I had a cardboard folder stuck under passenger seat (I later found),presumably affected connector. When I moved seat to get kiddy in rear chair, and started up - light appeared. As you have found even removing the problem, light stays on.
Bought Alfadiag licensed copy (£50) and cable from Ebay (£12) and a little bit of soldering later (changed pins in standard cable for airbag ECU) and had reset the light. I have heard that this light can often re-occur, so I wanted to be able to reset in the future rather than pay for a reset and then possibly pay again in the future again. Also if reset hadn’t worked I wanted time to mess around with connectors and reset again, rather than pay £££ and hour for mechanic to do it for me!!!
I can now read other faults from my ECU’s, or even monitor performance of engine sensors (if I ever find the need to..…).
