SOURCE: 2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.

the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta air bag light and ABS light stays on

no it wont. in order for the air bag light to go off you must get a VW air bag resetter. they sell for about 45 bucks. it will reset the light and crash data. since your airbag light is on the airbags are locked up. once reset they will work again. anymore questions give me an email... andrewlangner@yahoo.com

SOURCE: air bag lights warning staying on passat 1999

When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

Air bag warning ligth staying on


Hi Barry, Have a diagnostic scan carried out on the vehicle. Just as a matter of interest, do you know with vehicles fitted with air bags, it is very inadvisable to smoke or hold any sharp object while driving. If the air bag is triggered, the force of its operation can cause that type of object to cause serious injury Regards John

of course it can with a bit of welding and cutting ,but the official answer is no as it can only be used on the vehicle it was designed for so this new vehicle must be taken to a authorised tow bar fitting workshop and have the correct towing hitch fitted which conforms to europeon regulations ,then once its fitted the relavent paperowrk purporting to the towbar plus the tax paid reciept from the garage taken to the nearest vehicle test station and duely tested as part of a complete new yearly inspection then the paperwork is changed to show the towing bar and new certificate of inspection .Failure tom comply will render the owner liable to a big fine

Need directions to fit towbar and wiring on holden captiva sx (2007)


there is a standard tow bar and a 2000kg for genuine tow bars
you need to remove both tail lights,the bumper bar and reinforcement bracket, spare wheel and exhaust hangars on rear mufflers, remove the tie down bracket on LHS chassis rail(dont need this or the bolts that hold it on), so you can then bolt in place either of the 2 tow bars.
genuine wiring patch harness for trailer plug is my suggestion since its plug straight into vehicle and interfaces with vehicle, goes in right hand rear compartment remove lid then remove box, interface connector for trailer harness is there.
instructions can be printed out from dealers if you ask
some new kits dont come with instructions in kits because information is on dealer computers
there is a template to print out to cut hole in bumper bar for tounge area of tow bar, uses centre square dimple in bar but its a bit wider.

I have a 1998 ford f 150 and can't get the trailer turn lights working. i checked the fuses all are good so I think it's a relay but I don't know wich one is for the trailer turn lights and the book...


A 1998 has the engine mini fuse panel installed, but it is not documented in your owners manual. Don't know why this is.

You would want to open the engine mini fuse panel, and check the 20A fuse.
This is a picture with the relays documented, as this is not covered in either the 1997 or 1998 owners manual.

Chances are the fuse supplying power to the L & R trailer tow stop / turn relays is blown. Common source for this problem, but could also be the relays ( possible but not probable that both went at the same time ).

You can download the 1997 Owners manual and get the page that has the engine mini fuse panel picture and info.

Air bag light stays solid for 98 maxima.


Try resetting the air bag warning light...

1. Turn on the ignition with the driver's door open;
2. Quickly flick the driver's door switch 7 times.

This will clear the warning. See if that makes the light behave. If not, you have invested about a minute of your time.
