SOURCE: Air bag warning light stays on

You have to use VagCom (the diagnostic software that Audi uses) to turn off an airbag warning light. If you have a laptop that can go out to your driveway, go to www.ross-tech.com and download VagCom (it's free). Go on eBay and do a search for "Audi TT vagcom cable" and you'll find the interface cable for about $20. Buy that, and then you'll have the software to do it.

If you're not able or interested in it, you can go to the dealership and have them turn off the light - they'll charge you an hour's labor to do it (it takes less than four minutes, but they don't care - you're going to pay them between $60-100 to do it).

What you need to see is which bag is tripping the warning. On the A4s, it's usually the driver's side airbag (built into the seat). Moving the seat too far back or down tends to pull on the electrical connector for the airbag, separating it just enough to trip a warning light. When mine did this in my A4, I zip-tied the connector tightly to keep it from separating, then turned off the light, and have had no problems since. When you look under the seat for the connector, it's the yellow one (airbag wiring connectors are always yellow, as mandated by law). Just be careful not to pinch the wires when you tie it.

You need to use VagCom (the Audi diagnostic software - available for free at www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need to buy a cable from eBay), and you can find out which bag is tripping the light. If you have side bags in the front seats, chances are it's one of those - moving the seat too far back or down can strain the connector under the seat and cause it to open just enough to trip the light (happens on the Audi A4 all the time - mine happened three times before I fixed it for good). Once you know which bag it is, you can fix it. If it's one of the seat bags, zip tie the connector tightly to hold it together. Under the seat, the airbag has its own separate connector, and it's yellow (by law, all airbag connectors are yellow). Zip-tie it tightly without pinching any wires, then turn off the light. You should be good to go after that.

Try restarting the computer. Disconnect the negative or ground from the battery, wait five minutes then connect it again.

Air bag warning light permanently on on the dash board


  • The Air Bag Warning light on your dashboard functions just link a check engine light does. When it comes on and stays on there is a issue and the only way to know is to get it Airbag Control Module scanned by a VAG com scanner.
  • I don't know if Auto Zone can scan this but it is worth a try as they are free. If they don't then you will have to go to a repair shop and have it scanned. Once you get it scanned you will know what is causing the Air Bag Warning light to stay on. Then you can post it hear and I can assist you further. There is really know way to know until it is scanned.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Light stays on and warning for airbag service on reader board


If the airbag light stays on after it completes it's "check light" process then there is a fault in the air bag system. It could be anything from a bad sensor (there are 3 of them) to a wire that has become unplugged. This problem should be repaired as soon as possible because the air bags will not deploy in a collision while the warning light is continually on.

Air bag warning light is on


Hi,
BMWs usually have a peculiar problem with unnecessary warning lights especially as they get older in use. I don't think this is of any hazard except that you need to check the fuse box in the bonnet that has to do with electrical connections.

Cheers

That means your air bag is disabled and will not deploy in an accident. Only have a certified tech work on an air bag.

Air bag warning light staying on checked fuzes under bonnet ok


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.
