I know there's numerous threads relating to airbag light issues but I need info that I've not found in any of them so far.

Recently I've had the light flash once the car's started and it's unsightly and annoying at night.

Now, the light that flashes is the left hand one that has the text 'airbag' (not the middle one with the image of two people, side airbags and seat belts). This is number 21 on the dash guide in the original handbook that came with my 6.

Years ago when I bought the car, I carried out the obligatory under-seat repair of the wiring connectors and didn't have problems for ages. But what I'm wondering is, beacuse the light is the 'airbag' one, does this mean it's only flagging up issues with the front 2 airbags?

If it was the common problem with the under-seat wiring, wouldn't it be the other airbag light that flashes? Given that's the one for the side airbags!?

If the the lights do relate to their respective circuits, then I assume my problem is going to be that circular sensor behind the steering wheel. Is that likely? And if so does anyone know what they cost? I'm braced for penetration by my local baguette-munching car sales operation Dry

And no, I'm not taking the bulb out LOL

It could be the connectors for the pass side airbag, which are behind the glovebox?1 Had this with mine, reconnected them all, now need to do the under seat wiring LOL

On mine it flashed because the connector through the steering wheel broke. IIRC it's called a rotary switch.

If you can plug in a diagnostic machine it'll tell you which circuit is causing the problem.

Yeah this is what I'm beginning to think it is... I remembered after my post last night that servicebox also tells you prices; that rotary switch is about 121 IIRC!

That's a decent offer, cheers Will Smile
Unfortunately I'm in Bournemouth, so not very local! Are those wires behind the glove box easy to get at?
