Have an '08 NB Conv. My Airbag Indicator light goes out then comes back on again after switching on the ignition. The manual says it means a malfunction in the Automatic Rollover Support System. Has anyone experienced this?

Update 3-11-12: Had the dealer diagnose and repair. It was a failed seatbelt sensor on the passenger side. Also had them diagnose a sluggish passenger side window open/close. That was a failed regulator. Both were repaired under warranty. Glad we asked!

That buckle is the most common problem I read about on the Forum with the Airbag Warning System.

I also need air bag light HELP!!

2006 NBC Air bag light came on wifes car. Read the code 591
I replaced the drivers side seat belt buckle I purchased at
1stVWParts.com - 877-737-3670 black case red button
Part# 1Y1858471GFCN Your Price:$58.19 not a misprint
Also put Dielectric grease on connections under both seats.Still the light comes on. Any help would be great remember it's the wifes car.

Fixed it had to buy a VAG COM from Ross-Tech to turn off the air bag light after I replaced the seat belt buckle. My other code reader showed it was erasing the code but it didn't. Since I have 2 Beetles in the family I feel it was a good investment.

I have a 03 NBC and that used to be an issue until VW issued a TSB or recall (don't recall which). In any case, it was a warranty fix. You may want to call VW or do some more research.

Did you fix your problem?
I got the same light one, but don't have a vag to diagnose the problem, I assume you used that. My next step is to change the buckle, do you have any info on that part?
Thanks

Thanks for your quick reply. Did you follow any instruction to change the buckle? is that an easy job?
I used a code reader that gave me a 0591 code. Changed the drivers side buckle and the light is still on.Here's the info for a 2006 NB convertible
