Hi, just got back from the dealer after getting this warning. Paid $125 for diagnostics - made sure to get a printout - here goes:<p>Control Module - Diagnostic Trouble Code / Status<br>CCM / No fault found<br>DDM / No fault found<br>PSM / No fault found<br>CEM / No fault found<br>SWM / No fault found<br>DIM-0003 SRS Faulty circuit / DTC is found not active<br>DIM-0005 Red warning lamp Faulty circuit / DTC is found not active<br>DIM-0006 Orange warning lamp Faulty circuit / DTC is found not active<br>AUM / No fault found<br>SRS-00D4 SRS lamp Faulty signal / DTC is found active<br>ECM / No fault found<br>UEM / No fault found<br>TCM / No fault found<br>REM / No fault found<br>BCM / No fault found<br>PDM / No fault found<p>Dealer said the Driver Information Module (DIM) was bad, wanted $1350 USD to replace. Thoughts? Thank you!<br>

Re: 2003 V70 - SRS Airbag Service Urgent (jgreetis)

Ehhh... fishy <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>If it's only the SRS light did they try to clear it?<br>Next, if they did and it didn't work, did they look at the clock spring?<p>Dashboards can and do fail, but all the ones I've seen fail the entire dash quits, not just showing one fault light, they usually fail big time!<p>(BTW, $1350 is a good price for a dash module)<p>Ask them what happens if they replace the dash and the light is still on! <br>Then what, do you still have to pay for the dash?<br>This is less than an hour job, I would have them do this as a <B>wait </B>and see if the new one works before they do something else to fix it and still charge you for a new dash module!

Re: 2003 V70 - SRS Airbag Service Urgent (JRL)

JRL - thank you for your thoughts... I appreciate your advice. I don't have a good feeling that they know what the problem is. It could be chafed wiring under the driver's seat, or a host of other problems. But, they're going by their standard playbook, which is to replace the DIM. I like your suggestion about asking them to guarantee the repair for the DIM replacement... <p>I also have a call into my local repair shop, which does great work, though they are independent. Anytime I go to the dealership service center, they never fail to come up with thousands of dollars worth of "recommended" repairs, maintenance. I want my car to last, but sheesh...
