Question about 2000 Audi TT
Airbag fault warning stays on
I had this problem after the dealer serviced the car! They couldn't fix it despite several tries so I was stuck with the fault. Then I remembered I had the same fault in my previous XM model but it would reset on engine re-start. On that car it usually happened after a full left or right steering lock combined with hard braking when maneuvering in tight car parks. I figured that if this caused the problem then maybe it could also cure it. I tried it in a safe place, alternating left and right lock with abrupt braking. It didn't seem to clear the fault but after a 15 minute trip to the shopping centre I was surprised to find that the fault was gone when I re-started the engine! I have not had this problem in over a year now despite living with it for over three weeks at the time.

Tried the above, didn't work for me, looked online, many people say to look under driver seat and passanger seat for airbag sensor wires, did this, played around with wires to make sure all connected, sprayed a liberal amount of connector spray all over and light has stopped flashing.
I drive a xsara forte btw

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light
is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic
diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code
that is stored for the problem(s)
