The airbag light is not on a fused circuit. This light is controlled by the airbag module located at the base of the center console. It will stay on as long as a fault is detected at engine start-up. This light if it stays on after the engine is started for more than 5 to 8 seconds, indicates a problem in this system that requires the use of the VW VAG-COM scanner to diagnose the problem. This warning light indicates not only a problem, but it also indicates that the airbag system is disabled. Also, the airbag module must be coded correctly. This coding could be affected by any type of power surge, battery disconnections, ect. For driver and passenger front seat only the code should be 00070. For the front airbags with the side of seat airbags added, the code must be 16721. The VAG-COM scanner reads this coding from the part # stored inside the module and displays it on the scanner.shaqdiesel said:hi all!
