Hi, I've just bought myself a little Seat Arosa and the airbag light is on, under the seats is a wire not connected to anything, all I can assume is that the seats have been swapped for ones without airbags. I've tried searching the forum already but can find no conclusive answer, does anyone know what size resistor I need to connect to make the ECU think the airbags are connected and which wires are connected as there are three in the wiring plug, two yellow and green and one brown I think.
I have removed the cloth interior from my GTI and fitted a leather one. Yet to wire the heating elements in but thats another storey. The leather seats do not have shoulder airbags where as the originals did. Under the seat are the yellow airbag connections with 3 wires. A brown, a white, and a blue or green depending on which side of the car. I have tried inserting resistors bridging the white and blue & white and green. I have tried 2.2 ohm, 2.4 ohm & 2.7 ohm. I have done both sides at once and cleared the fault codes using vcds lite between each attempt. But the dash light refuses to stay out. I have not tried bridging the resistor between the brown wire & either white or blue and green. Can anyone clarify for me which connections should the resistor be connected to?
