It has to be done with VagCom diagnostic software or a VagCom scanner. If you have a laptop computer, go to and download VagCom version USB409. Go on eBay and order a USB to OBD2 cable (just search for Audi A4 diagnostic cable) for about $25. Then you'll have the software and can do this (and a lot more) by yourself. If it's irritating you badly, you'll have to take it to a shop to do this (and probably pay 1/2 hr to 1 hr service rate for this 4 minute procedure). If you can wait until your cable arrives, you can do it yourself. Having the light on will not harm anything, nor will it keep the airbags from working.

"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.

My 2004 Audi Avant quaatro air bag light suddenly came on and won't turn off.

You'll have to have the computer scanned to see which bag tripped the light. Then you can reset it and see if it comes back. These cars will get fluke warnings like that sometimes, but if it comes back, you'll need to check the harness connectors for the offending airbag and possibly zip-tie them together to hold them and keep them from falsely tripping another warning.

no, you have an air bag failure code. this means you have a problem with a part of your airbag system. the clockspring is a common part to fail on this vehicle.

An airbag light usually means that for some reason the airbag system has been de-activated. the only people certified to do anything with air bags are licensed tech's. As it is a major safety system i wouldn't take any chances with it.

Air bag light on my 1999 audi a4 quattro 2.8l. Any suggestions?

Most likely the driver's seat bag. When the seat is moved too far (or someone flops down into it too hard) it can jar the connector under the seat and cause it to open momentarily. Look under the front of the seat - it's the yellow connector. I ziptied mine, then turned the light off (you need vagcom to do this), and haven't had a problem since.

I have a 96 audi i believe before i got the car the air bags have been deployed. how much would it cost to replace them? Or at lease turn the light off?

Only way to shut the light off is remove the light bulb. Only way to know the cost is first find out why the air bag was deployed then replace broken parts. Also be aware that ash from smoking can get into the steering wheel destroying the clockspring for the airbag therefore setting the light.
