  • Airbag light on all time

    The airbag light is constant on , it will not turn off.
    Why is that ? What different causes can it be ?
    When i bought the car it was disconnected.
    I had the battey of when i connected it.
    There is still red light.
    I have maxxecu.
    Its not possible to check with VAG tool then or is there a special ecu for the airbag ?

    Best Regards

    Morning, I have the same problem, however my RS2 is 26 years old and the air bags have a shelf life of about 15 years. I was told they can re gas the unit, as there are a couple of companies who do the re gassing.

      Vcds is the tool to use. I think there is a code for ”lamp broken”. Even when a new lamp is replaced the code remains and has to be deleated.
