This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.

Take it to a mechanic. It sounds like your Airbag Control Module is bad. Do not attempt to fix it yourself, airbag systems are dangerous.

ABS and air bag warming lights are On. The turn sigal lightswill work.


I think this is the same as a '94-

Try the rear windshield wiper. It is likely on the same fuse with the airbag, if the fuse is blown, the light will come on.

Check with Crysler/Dodge for a recall. There was one that affected caravans about that vintage for a short that develops in the rear windshield wiper that blows the fuse and lights the airbag warning light.

My air con ,rear wiper and fog lights have stopped working on a vw polo 2.0 hatch 2005


Consult your Car Owner manual to locate where the Fuse Box is located: Check the appropriate fuse(s) for the appliances in your car that are not working - I suspect that the AirCon, RearWiper and Fog lights are sharing the same fuse as it would be extremely unusual to have 3 separates fuses blown at the same time. ps. The Polo usually has some spare fuses in/near the Fuse Box.

Hi, the rear windscreen wiper on my 2003 VW POLO has just stopped working. Can you help? Cheers Emma. (For some reason it wouldn't let me select polo from the pick list for VW cars.)


The most common reason for this is a blown fuse, so using your vehicle owners book locate and check the fuse first. (if you don't have one then buy a Haynes manual for your car, the cost will pay for itself with the first repair you do). Modern automotive fuses not only have the current rating clearly marked numerically, but are colour coded and the fuses are designed so that you can easily see if they're blown when you pull them out to check. Most modern vehicle fuseboxes have a few spare fuses included and often have a small plastic tool to assist with pulling them out.

Normally a blown fuse needs further investigation as they should only fail if there's been a problem which would otherwise cause fire or other damage, but if wipers are operated inappropriately then it can cause enough load to blow the fuse. Sometimes the wiper spindles can become worn allowing water to get in and corrode the internal parts; this will cause the spindles to bind or even seize up and also cause the wiper motor to draw sufficient current to blow the fuse.

Inappropriate use includes operating the wipers when the screen is dry, trying to use them to clear snow, ice or debris, operating them if the blades or arms are damaged.

If your problem turns out to be more than a straightforward blown fuse then please add a comment to my answer and I'll try to give you more specific advice. If my answer has solved your problem then please return the favour by rating my answer.
