    Can I reset airbag warning light

    Hi, I started my 01 Passat with the passangers seat removed. The airbag warning light now stays on as does the seat belt reminder light. Can I reset these without the OBD tool. Is there any sequence of proceedures for this like there is in the BMW.

    Nope!

Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    an airbag fault light is indicative of a fault with the airbag. the airbag is a safety feature, as we all know.

    Have you looked into the fault or had it diagnosed/repaired by a garage?

    you are aware that an airbag fault is an instant MOT failure and as such, should be looked at by a proffessional.

    That said, get the fault looked at and rectified ASAP, as you are endangering yourself and others not doing so.
    VWAF wants your feedback!

    Re: Can I reset airbag warning light

    No, quite right it isn't an MOT failure YET but **** the car and get hurt due to a lack of air bag deployment and the insurance company may take a dim view of you driving with a safety system faulty.

    The Vagcom cable and Rosstech software is your best bet!

    Re: Can I reset airbag warning light

    I know this post is way after the original, but I've had the airbag warning light come on in a VW Passat 2.0TDi 2006 model ;

    I looked on Rosstech but couldn't find anything to do with airbags, VagCom etc - where do I need to look????
