You will need to get the fault codes read first, a common problem is the wiring/connectors under the front seats. The fault code reading will help point you in the right direction. When the light is on the airbag will not work in an accident.
there is a valve on the back of the mechanical fuel pump under the bonnet
when the lift pump in the tank fails some tiny bits of the pump are sucked down the fuel line and clog up a tiny filter on the end of the valve that may be causing the light to come on amd possibly the engine to stall
i have found that the bosch kts670 will read just about anything you plug it in to
Sounds like a flakey connector - try hunting down all the connectors you can find under the bonnet. Separate them, spray with WD40 and reconnect. Start at the engine management computer (silver block with fins on and lots of wires coming out). Take great care not to bend pins.

Hi, I have a 2.0HDI Expert which was doing the exact same thing as yours, blowing thick black smoke, sluggish and loss of power on gradients, a hissing sound and surging. I replaced the air flow meter but that didn't help. I was told to replace the turbo but a turbo expoert told me not to as it would blow white smoke if it was faulty. I was then told to replace the injectors but a diagnostic test showed them to be functioning fine. I was then told to look at the intercooler which had thick sludge at the lower left pipe. I replaced it today - Sunday 12th July and it is now driving like a new van. It now pulls me up gradients with ease in 4th and 5th instead of having to drop gear to get to the top. I got a replacement from Euro Car Parts for £147 inc VAT. To tell if this is your problem, look through the gaps in the lower section of the bumper at what looks like the radiator and look for sludge over the inside of the bumper and all over the pipe where it joins the back of the radiator (intercooler). Also open the bonnet and look down behind the grille for the same sludge. Hope this sorts it for you. Barry, Newtownards, Northern Ireland.
