    The same happened with my daughter's Clio 2 weeks ago. The passenger airbag exploded while she was stationary at a set of traffic lights. To date, Renault are insisting the car was subject to some impact and refuse to take any responsibility.

    i have had the same problem!!! my car has had problems starting for a long time now maybe 6 months and every time i take it to garage there claim there isn't a problem with it. On sunday night of this week i was driving along a straight road and suddenly my side passenger airbag exploded it was very frightening and my car filled with smoke and cut out on a very dangerous corner. i had not hit anything and there was no collision, i have contacted the renault garage near me and they accept no responsibility i have gone straight to the manufcturer and they haven't responded. my insurance company have informed me that they will only pay out IF it is the result of a collision not a technical fault with the car, there is a dent in my alloy like a chunk taken out this is not the result of hitting a curb and i can't remember hitting anything else - very strange. haas nayone else had the same problem? have they had any luck claiming from renault?

Peugeot 207 2007 airbag / seat belt error warning

I Have the same problem, but I think is only a bad wire connection in a box under sit driver. I'll check next weekend.

I had this problem too in a Renault clio 2 v2, and renault just cut the wires plugs and put it together directly using a soldering iron.

Error b1034 airbag warning light

This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

Removing seat fitted with airbag from a 2001 Renault Clio

It is best that you disconnect the negative battery terminal while disconnecting & removing or reinstalling the seat.

Be sure to ground yourself by touching metal when going to unplug any harness in a computer controlled vehicle to prevent static discharge. (the airbag is connected throught the harness you are removing and any spark that would hit that wire, could trigger the airbag to deploy)
good luck

Hi, i need to remove a car seat from a Renault Clio 2001 fitted with a seat airbag and pre-tensioners. can someone please advise me on how to proceed and whether turning off the airbag by key will disable...

disconnect the veichle battery before touching anything. then remove the seat,dont connect the battery until you have the seat fitted again with all wires connected, then reconnect the veichle battery. everything should be fine. just remember not to connect the battery until you have the job fully completted.

Flashing airbag spammer on dashboard renault laguna 96 1.8b

This light is telling you that you have an Airbag Problem. You might want to Locate a Mechanic and have this Checked out. This is not something that you want to try and fix yourself as the AirBags could go off and Cost a Lot more to have the Dah and Sterring Wheel Replaced. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help that I can get! Thanks!
