Question about 2002 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo S

1 Answer

Airbag Light Hi there-- We have a 2002 VW Beetle with an airbag light that stays on. A mechanic checked it out and cleaned contacts and light went off, said if it came back on seat belt buckle would need to be replaced. 4 days later it was on. Is this difficult to replace? Do you replace the entire seat belt or just some wiring?

    My light just cams on and I have the same year as you. I took it in and they said it will cost about $300.00 to put a new chip in. I can't believe it.

    I have a 2002 bug too! My airbag light has been on now for a few weeks...I have not yet looked into fixing the problem, but $300 is very high :(

    I have the same problem as all of you but i got the new seat belt and everything the people who fixed it couldnt turn it off i have to got to another volkwagen place to see if they can re program it for me. If you have a warning t on the car the parts should be free

Take it to a mechanic. It sounds like your Airbag Control Module is bad. Do not attempt to fix it yourself, airbag systems are dangerous.

There are no switches they can hit to make your airbag light go on. It just sounds like a horrible coencidence. Call VW Customer service number in your owners manual, they may do the diagnostic for free then.

The warning light above the airbag light on the dash. 2002 VW


Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.

Airbag light stays on


This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.
