Any repairs carried out on the airbag system the main airbag computer has to be locked by the diagnostic tool otherwise this could trigger airbags to go off.

All configurations to airbag computer must be printed out for a new computer to be stored and configure rated.
If the vehicle is only equipped with pretensioners and a driver’s air bag or only with pretensioners,
the computer configuration will have to be changed.
In the event of the computer configuration not corresponding to the vehicle equipment, the air bag warning light remains illuminated.

Anyhow I don't believe that the connector connected to the airbag computer will be the same to start off with.
You can confirm this by checking the part number.

I hope this information will somehow hopeful!

If the computer in your car will except it then i wouldnt see why not, make sure you test sensors before actually installing, you might get it all together and find out that it will not work or it will fail other sensors in the vehicle

Where is fuel cut off switch on 03 megane

The fuel cut out switch is built into the airbag computer (ecu), as it is only required to operate in the event of an accident. The airbag computer is located under the centre console. It is more likely that the tdc sensor has a faulty connection or the camshaft sensor is faulty. If the fault persists after you have filled up with fuel the best thing to do is get a diagnostic test carried out on the injection system to check for any possible fault codes.

Error message "Steering Fault" : Renault Megane

  • This is a common fault with this vehicle. You have electric steering and it starts out not to bad and then becomes impossible to turn. It would be best to have yours refurnished as new ones are quite pricey.

  • Hope this helps.

Steering wheel started clicking and got airbag warning light on - renault megane 5 plate

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 1/2 hour prior.
