Dear all,

My 2004 2.0l convertible has since months the same failure: the Airbag light is active. With a simple OBD Scanner the failure Code 1738 was detected. Is it really the Crash Sensor or could this caused by any defect cable or corrosion?
Any help is highly appreciated.

I would get a VW specific scanner on the car and see what comes up. Generic readers don't always pick up all codes.

ALREADY DONE, STILL ONLY FAILURE CODE 01738 is shown. Car dealer wants to change sensor in the front...
With my generic scanner I can delete the failure but in some days or hours or minutes the light is again on. It is not regular so I would say that is not a sensor failure, more or less a corrosion in the cable or connector.
Any idea to check this?

Based upon the link; there maybe a recall on this issue, for the new beetle. Call vw customer service or your local vw dealer, to see if your car is covered.
