I moved my seat forward and the message came on again ! ,,,, Last time it happened i took it to the dealer and they reflashed the ecu and it was gone!, Bit it has once again come on im not in for spending another 100$ and wasting 4 hours of time <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Any ideas on what could be causing this so i can try fix it ? <p>I checked under the seat pushed all the wires in checked everything looked fine... I pulled the SRS fuse and put it back in with nothing changing, I did an ECU reset and nothing, anything else anyone can suggest ?

Re: Passanger Air Bag Warning ? (jdsr917)

If the prior time was recent, you could try to take the car back with receipt in hand. Either have them fix the CEL or reimburse you for the 'unnecessary' flash. The other option could be to call instead, so you don't potentially waste a trip.

Re: Passanger Air Bag Warning ? (stealth)

Pretty common, especially with non power passenger seats. Usually due to the harness getting pulled for the OWS. Move it back and just unplug the battery cable. Should go away.

Tell them that you do not approve any work (at cost) until you see a quote. Then, once they either fix it via flash or give you a quote, go home and type it here <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Passanger Air Bag Warning ? (jdsr917)

Stuff under the seat is the most common thing that I see, people put the seat all the way forward really fast and jars the electrical. Most cases a simple code clearing will take care of it.<p>However there is a bulletin that can include a SW download and even doing a OWS replacement if problem futher persists.

My warning message keeps coming back. Getting worse as time goes by. I think I might just replace the sensor. Does anybody know the part number?

Don't mess with safety, especially your passengers'. Take it in.

MHO, anyway.
