Sounds like you may have a voltage regulator problem. Have the alternator voltage regulator checked out for correct voltage and charging.

SOURCE: Hi, how much would it cost to reset airbag light

Sorry but that can only be answered by a repair garage. The answer depends upon:-

  • the country you're in;
  • whether you use an independent garage or a franchised outlet; and
  • the exact reason that the light has come on
The last point is really important: you may just have a loose wiring connector or the light could be telling you that an airbag has actually failed and needs replacing. It's important to note that this is not really a DIY job: if you don't understand what you're doing there's a risk of airbag detonation which could harm you and cause a lot of interior damage.

As your car is now 10 years old, it's likely that the light has just come on to tell you that the airbags have reached the end of their certified lifespan and need servicing. In practice what usually happens is that a VW garage or an airbag specialist will run diagnostics on the system and then re-certify the system for around another 5 years, resetting the airbag light to match. They can do this based on ongoing research by the airbag manufacturer using samples of airbags manufactured at the same time as yours. Many car insurers will refuse to pay out if the airbag light is ignored or if it has been reset by unqualified personnel.

The cost of the diagnostics and recertification is usually fairly low as it normally doesn't take long if all proves to be fine, but you can usually get it done for free if you get the same garage to do a major service or similar major work done at the same time, such as a cambelt replacement which will definitely be overdue if not already carried out.

Good Morning - I did a emergency stop in my Golf GTI and the airbag fault light has appeared will I need to take my car to VW to be reset?


Anyplace can access the VW airbag code a reset might not do it. The reason for the light to come on is not beacuse you made a emergency stop.The light is warning you that a fault has been detected and if involved in a accident the air bag may not deploy or may deploy so theyll have find the code to see what has set it off.

Airbag light


You need a man with a diagnostic PC to reset the code in the EMU.(Engine Management Unit)

A sensor has told the EMU that an air bag has deployed or is not able to deploy.

There are no user codes for this it has to be via a purpose built program from VW , Sorry !!

Airbag light remains on after changing fuse of rear wiper.VW POLO


This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.
