    the car is a 2002 mk4 golf 1.6 16valve with 80k on the clock.

    while driving yesterday on the motorway the following warning lights came on

    red alternator/battery light came followed by message alternator fault-workshop

    then yellow flashing abs light-

    then red brake symbol ! symbol

    then airbag light-airbag fault

    the car did not switch off,and aa man came and said alternator was faulty and told me to drive home slowly and he followed me in case car conked out but it didnt.

    now when i start the car, airbag light stays on and computer message says airbag fault

    no other warning lights but i noticed that battery/alternator red warning light does not come on when ignition is switched on which it should and go off off once car is started up.

    vag.com came up with follwing fault codes

    16947

    00668

    01330
    01331
    01332
    01333
    01334

    Car starts up fine and drives ok and it had a new battery last yr.

    what is causing these faults-faulty alternator or is it faulty wiring?

    cannot see multiple fuses blowing together and

    drive belt for alternator is intact.

    pleae help.

    I think a lot of those are central locking faults, check them on Ross-Tech Wiki, any water? I think you should check central convenience module.
