Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
Bought a used 2001 beetle for my daughter, the guy @ the car lot said he couldent figure out why it was on and told me not to worry about it. should i be conserned ?
Of course you should be concerned, air bags save lives, when the light is on the system is turned off, you need to have a scanner connected to your car to get the code that will help a trained technician fix the problem, do not attempt this repair yourself unless you are a trained pro, if the air bag goes off with out warning it can cause very grave personnel injury, such as a broken neck, this I know first hand.

I know exactly what the problem is. the seats were probably removed when detailing the car at the dealer. this causes the circuitry to be reset. thus the air bag light will stay lit until reset at a VW auto shop. we asked the dealer to fix this before we bought the car. it cost them $94. problem solved!!
