You have to use VagCom (the diagnostic software that Audi uses) to turn off an airbag warning light. If you have a laptop that can go out to your driveway, go to www.ross-tech.com and download VagCom (it's free). Go on eBay and do a search for "Audi TT vagcom cable" and you'll find the interface cable for about $20. Buy that, and then you'll have the software to do it.

If you're not able or interested in it, you can go to the dealership and have them turn off the light - they'll charge you an hour's labor to do it (it takes less than four minutes, but they don't care - you're going to pay them between $60-100 to do it).

What you need to see is which bag is tripping the warning. On the A4s, it's usually the driver's side airbag (built into the seat). Moving the seat too far back or down tends to pull on the electrical connector for the airbag, separating it just enough to trip a warning light. When mine did this in my A4, I zip-tied the connector tightly to keep it from separating, then turned off the light, and have had no problems since. When you look under the seat for the connector, it's the yellow one (airbag wiring connectors are always yellow, as mandated by law). Just be careful not to pinch the wires when you tie it.

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

It is malfunction indicator

DIAGNOSIS WITH SCAN TOOL
CHECK PROCEDURES 1. Connect the Hi-Scan Pro to the vehicle data link connector located underneath the dash panel. 2. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position and turn on the Hi-Scan Pro . 3. Check for diagnostic trouble codes. 4. If a fault code is found, then replace the appropriate component. Never attempt to repair the component. 5. If the Hi-Scan Pro finds that a component of the system is faulty, there is a possibility that the fault is not in the components but in the SRS wiring or connector. e918f61.gif
The SRS airbag system has sophisticated electrical and electronic components. Therefore the airbag operating components should be handled very carefully. SRSCM (Supplement Restraint System Control Module) SRSCM determines when to deploy the airbag module by sensing the frontal and side impact force through the built in sensor SRSCM.

SOURCE: 2007 Passat wagon. I need to reset the air bag warning light.

the air bag light will only show if the ignition was turned on while it was disconnected.

it will defo need to be pluged into the computer to be put out but some smaller garages will have the software to do this and will be a little cheaper.here in ireland VW wanted 50euro to do mine but a small garage done it for 30euro.

you can buy code finders/reset gadgets on ebay but might not be worth it for one job compared to $130.

my suggestion would be to get the main dealer to do it if a normal automotive shop cannot access it.

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 hour prior.

Air suspension light comes on after copmpressor stops running


Sounds like you need to check the air-bags for a leak. Unfortunately, the compressor may have wore itself out attempting to continuously provide air to the air-bag and may also need replacing. Just my $0.02 worth.

Air bag light on for ford 2001 suddenly


Be careful. You do not want the air bag to deploy on you suddenly. Check the air bag fuse on the vehical, it may need to be replaced. If your air bags have been deployed recently, the lights do not turn off until the dealer turns them off for you.

Air bag light stays on


With the air-bag light permanently on, you will need an expert to check the air-bag sensor to confirm if it's gone bad.

You may not be able to turn the light off because it requires that the error be corrected then the light goes off by itself.

There are special/ dedicated tools for handling this issue.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

There are no ways to turn off the air bag light except you replace the faulty air bag.

I have nissan altima 2007 the air bags light is flashing i need turn off how ican do


If the air bag light is flashing- that means there is problem with your SRS air bag system. It stored a code in the computer and wont turn off untill the problem is fixed or cleared manualy with a scan tool- note if you choose to clear the code and turn off the light with a scan tool- if the problem with the system is still there the computer in your car will notice it and store another code and the light will come right back on. also Note that if the air bag light or SRS light is on while driving that system is shut down and your air bags WILL NOT go off if you get into an accident. (the same rules apply if your ABS- anti lock brake light is on- the ABS system will not work) the most common problem with the Altimas and air bag codes are the clock spring assembly located behind your steering wheel- (not the air bag itself on the steering wheel) but there is a round thing that turns with a wire connected to it. you have to remove the steering wheel to service. Best bet - go somewhere that has a scan tool and read what code the computer stored. It will tell you what part of the system has the problem.

Check the main fuse box under the hood on the drivers side. You should do it with an ohmmeter. good luck. The cruise control is probably the door lock module. Are your interior lights stuck on?

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.
