    Hello there I wonder if anyone might have some thoughts on this idea I have... I have soldered all my Airbag yellow connectors, under the seat, the B pillars and C pillars at the back. My car is 3 door so I think the cause may be moving the seat or possibly helping other cars with flat...
  6. Passenger airbag warning help - MOT fail?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Current steed is a GTV but I'm looking at a Brera. I saw quite a nice one on Saturday but the passenger airbag light, in the roof panel, was on permanently. There are no lights on the dash or beeps on start up. Since the owner doesn't have kiddies, I doubt if this is deliberate and suspect a...

    I returned from Norfolk to West Sussex today,and possibly because of the vibrations and solar radiation heating up the dashboard,the cover for the airbag on the passenger seat-nearside, came loose and almost fell off from its position.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The 1999 SP1 156 with Allied airbags 2F 2C, has recently developed a habit of logging a driver's airbag pretensioner squib fault (high resistance). The thing is, there is no wiring (yellow sheathed or otherwise) connecting to under the seats. The seatbelt buckles have no wiring. The SP1 does...

    I've never had problems before, using my Red cable and paid for version of MultiECUScan. I can still connect to the engine ECU no problem. I've checked my red cable for any damage and it looks fine. Could this be an airbag ECU issue more than a MES issue? I do have an airbag light on and am...
