  • airbag Warning light came on after installing an alarm system!!

    Hi,
    yesterday I was installing an alarm system in a VW GOLF 1999 1.6, and after completing all. the ABS and airbag Warning light came on! The ABS Warning light disappear when i drove the car, but the airbag warning light stays on when I start the car, then disappears, then is constantly on...?! I checked all wires, and everything is alright...!!
    Any help will be appreciated.
    Thanks.

      You disconnect the battery? You might have sent a jolt down the sensor. Usually not a problem. Just reset the light. I know with my honda to reset the light, you have to press the odometer while doing some crazy engine start, off, then just onn wait for a sec, press the odometer a few times, car off, wait the horn beeps, then on, off, and start the car, and the horn beeps 2 times and the SRS light flashes 5 times and turns off. It is horrible to do it. But there is likely to be a similar thing for you.

        Be really careful here! This can be the difference of you walking away from a crash or being wrapped around your wheel! When the light is on, it means the airbags are disabled and will not come out in the event of a crash!
        If I were you, I'd go to a pro and get them checked. It would be somewhat awkward to not have your airbags when you need them!!

          Are the seat sensor wires hooked up underneath the car?

            Air bags

            Hey ,
            I had the same problem on the airbags before.. remember never disconnect any airbag connector when the batt is on. thats the trick in all the vehicles equipt with airbag systems .. if you have to disconect , remmember to do so when the batt is not connected. For this case you need your comp checked.

              Yes they are, but do you think this have any relation with installing an alarm and air-bag system? And can you recommend me any resetting tool to use with this car cause I tried an ELM327 scanner http://www.skpang.co.uk/catalog/prod...roducts_id=126 but it's not responding, I tried the same scanner in 3 different cars (all of them diesel) and it's working perfect but not on mine, maybe because of difference in protocol between diesel and petrol cars?!, and I have been posting this problem here before I mean about the scanner, but no one gave me any answer.
              any suggestions will be helpful.
              Thanks.

                OBD2/EOBD scanners will not enable you to access airbag faults I'm afraid, they are only for engine faults.

                If you're looking for a cost-effective option, take a look at our VW scanner tool.

                  This is not true. I've used Snap-on scan tools to access ABS systems (Including "bleeding" the ABS system) via OBDII. It depends on the vehicle what you are able to do via the OBDII system.

                    I'm have to disagree I'm afraid. This is slightly confusing I appreciate. You can able to access other ECU's via the OBD2 or DLC socket, however these do not use the OBD2 system - this is engine only. The SnapOn tool you mention is a professional tool, and therefore enables access to other ECU's.

                    Hope that this helps,
