Sat waiting to pick kids up the other day, showed Missus how to disarm passenger airbag, turned ignition back on lo and behold airbag warning light comes on :angry2: .Tried the usual stuff, moving disarm switch again but to no avail. Booked into "local" (30miles) Treg VW specialist as our local VW dealer (10miles) can't do warranty work!. Plugged into diagnostics an found intermittant fault on "drivers airbag igniter", Techie checked all connections etc but couldn't find anything and also did "unspecified" software upgrade on Treg at same time. We have now got to monitor the situation and if it recurs the Treg will have to go in for plus/minus two days for wiring checks. Checked the forum and found the bits about low charge on battery but has anybody else had problems with the passenger airbag disarm switch??

Sounds like a new one, but prob will be taken care of with a quick update and then re-boot

Don't worry too much

airbag light came on my car after moving the drivers seat. Went to my local vw dealer, only they cant do any warranty work, had to go to a dealer 50 miles away. They fiddled about with the wires under the seat but the light kept coming on. Booked the car in for a day to have the wiring loom under the seat replaced. They came and collected the car last night and left me a golf plus thingy
