You need to take it to a dealer before it deploys. The warning can mean a bumper sensor is bad, the system has detected a leak in the air bag, or the firing system in one of the airbags has lost connection. The dealer would be able to tell where the problem is and you would not want the bag to deploy while you are working on it yourself.

It is malfunction indicator

DIAGNOSIS WITH SCAN TOOL
CHECK PROCEDURES 1. Connect the Hi-Scan Pro to the vehicle data link connector located underneath the dash panel. 2. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position and turn on the Hi-Scan Pro . 3. Check for diagnostic trouble codes. 4. If a fault code is found, then replace the appropriate component. Never attempt to repair the component. 5. If the Hi-Scan Pro finds that a component of the system is faulty, there is a possibility that the fault is not in the components but in the SRS wiring or connector. e918f61.gif
The SRS airbag system has sophisticated electrical and electronic components. Therefore the airbag operating components should be handled very carefully. SRSCM (Supplement Restraint System Control Module) SRSCM determines when to deploy the airbag module by sensing the frontal and side impact force through the built in sensor SRSCM.

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.

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.

Why does the airbag light stay on after starting the engine


The sir systems have many sensors and devices. You need a scan tool that can read the body codes and not the engine codes. It could be an airbag, or seat belt tensioner. You really need that code to diagnose properly.

My air bag indicator light is on


the SRS module has detected a problem and turned the light on. you will have to get the code pulled to find out what set the code then have a shop diagnose the problem. working with air bags is dangerous if you don`t know what your doing. it could be something like an intermitant connection.
