There isn't a fuse specifically dedicated to the airbag light, AFAIK.

But maybe something will strike you in the attached chart. Or you can describe the issue you're having with the light, maybe someone will have other solutions.

* edit: ahhh shoot... just realized... the SRS system may be governed by a fuse by the battery compartment under the hood. Keep forgetting those are out there ;)

Air bag light on a TDI....

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.
You really need to have your airbag module scanned to find the prob. and fix it so you are protected to the maximum level by this extremely effective safty device. It could be as simple as a loose connection at a plug. Do not attempt to re-connect any connections with the battery conections in place. Leave any of these type problems to a qualified VW service tech. that can safely work on this type system without causing a deployment of any bag unintentionally. These bags deploy with tremendous force and if you are in the wrong place, it could severely injure you.... Good Luck, JK
