SOURCE: 1996 Audi A4 quattro airbags install

The main thing with dealing with airbags is to ground yourself before plugging them in. Any electronics shop can sell you an ESD (electrostatic discharge) wrist strap and ground cord for a few dollars. Use this to ground yourself securely to the frame of the car. This gives a pathway for static electricity in your body to discharge into the car, rather than into the airbag connector, potentially blowing the airbags. All the same, whenever possible, don't sit in front of the bag you're installing in case something goes wrong and it does blow.

SOURCE: audi a4 bonnet release mechanism broken

This can be over come by getting a pair of vise grips and gripping the cable that is sticking out and pulling it out, once you have opened it Do not attempt to close the hood without replacing the cable. You have maybe only one chance at this so if you don't succeed you will make it harder for a mechanic to fix it. a new cable is not to difficult to replace, buy the cable and housing replace both.

SOURCE: 01 audi a4 alternator fuse location

For 2001 Audi A4 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram. But the alternator don't have any fuse! You can check up electrical connections. If you don't find anything wrong the alternator is out of order. Replace brushes inside, or voltage regulator (see picture below)!

SOURCE: A4 airbag sensor

A4s are known for airbag lights due to the bag in the side of the driver's seat. The yellow connector under the seat gets stretched and opens up partially if you move the seat too far. It's just a quick opening but it's enough to trip the light. In mine, I ziptied the connector tightly together, then turned off the light (you need the VagCom diagnostic software for this).

"Retriger airbag control unit"??? NOT! If the airbags are deployed in a 2000 Audi A4, the airbag control unit MUST be replaced. Pleases refer to 2000 Audi A4 service information for more details.

Airbag light on dash is on. Told $600 to replace "rear airbag sensor". Can I buy the sensor and replace it with less cost?


Wow, that's expensive. $600 sure sounds like the air bag module itself. The air bag "sensors" located at the front near the radiator hold downs, there's 2 of them are around $45 each.

Airbag light blinks, how do i reset it, or what could be wrong.


The sensor for the airbag is bad. It will need to be replaced (not a shadetree mechanic task. Take it to the dealer... If you screw it up, the bag could deploy. With the light flashing, the airbag is disabled.

BMW 745i airbag light. Told to replacing airbag clockspring


Hello , check the airbag contact sensor behing the grill assembley . They are located to the left and right of the grill almost to the headlight assemblies. Check the wires to them for corrosion and damage. Check the fuse as well. There should be an air bag testing wire or fuse in the fuse panel. DO NOT UNPLUG THE AIR BAG SENSORS OR HIT THEM !!

Airbag light is on


Air bag sensor got knocked loose and either needs to be replaced or needs to be re mounted. You may have to take it to a dealership to get them to figure out which one has gone
