SOURCE: air bag light will not go off

Go to the VW website and look for the recall number (I dont have it handy) VW should fix it for you...no charge.

SOURCE: Air Bag Light stays on every time I start the engine.

There are a few things that can cause this, either the air bag itself going bad, or an airbag sending unit or brain going bad,

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: air bag light blinks then syays on

If you mean the passenger airbag light no longer lights up and airbag light on the dash blinks at start-up and then stays on; the read the below and check this site:

www.automotivehelper.com

I went to radio shack cost me $2.99 for 3 bulb packet. But the post below worked. It really didn't that long, pretty easy job. Took longer to find the tools. The first guys idea/fix, the second guy gave pretty good instructions. Just a little more detail: (3) the clips are one each side of the panel; (5) these two screws are on the inside lower part of module, (6) unclip the plastic tabs from the back (where the plug end is) first and it should lift up easily.

-------------
I had this happen on my 98 Ranger.(code 27) My light on the module that turns off the passenger side airbag was burnt out. I went to Radio Shack and bought a 12v light with wires attached and soldered them to the existing light.(didn't even take it out!) It fixed it!! Cost, about $1.50 and 20 minutes of fix time.

Note: If the light by the key switch to turn off the passenger side airbag does not work, it disables the entire airbag system! Hope yours is as easy to fix.

----------

gerg,

Thanks for your post. I have no way to read codes, but I heard the five tone alarm every time I started the vehicle and the passenger air bag off light did not light up. I was skeptical, but tried your advice and it worked.

Parts:
1) 12-volt colored lamp (Radio Shack part: 272-1099)

Tools:
1) socket set
2) philips head screw driver
3) soldering iron

Procedure:
1) remove ash tray from console panel
2) using a socket set, remove 4 hex head screws from console panel
3) pull console panel out of the two clips
4) remove connector from air bag key module in console panel and take console panel to a work bench
5) remove 2 philips head screws to remove the airbag key module
6) carefully unclip the plastic tabs that hold the airbag key module case together
7) remove connector circuit board from air bag key module
8) solder the yellow replacement lamp to the two solder pads for the original lamp on the back side of the circuit board (which wire to which pad does not matter)
9) tie the replacement lamp in place next to the original lamp
10) replace the circuit board in the airbag key module and snap the case back together
11) connect the airbag key module in the truck and start the engine to check that the lamp illuminates and that the alarm does not sound
12) screw the aribag key module back into the console panel
13) snap the console panel back into the truck
14) replace the 4 hex head screws
15) replace the ash tray

try using nitrogen gas shockies instead of hydraulic units . Remember that you have lowered the car so the distance for the bump stops to the chassis will now be virtually nill so at every bump the stopper will hit hard on the chassis.

You need to connect a scan tool to determine what the problem is. The most common item to fail on the Air Bag system is the clock spring in the steering column. That part should cost about $90 to $100.

Airbag light staying on


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.

Chronic problem with airbag light staying on.


Not sure of the year of your car, but there was a recall to resecure the harness connector. If it is 2005 the entire airbag harness should be replaced, Sorry only the dealer can access the air bag info.

Airbags


Sounds like it needs more air in bags. Add air and squirt really soapy water over bags and attached lines to find leak. May have to replace bag/bags or feed line from pump. I would think it would be a feed line if car stays up with switch off.
