[Warning Light] Airbags - again !!!
#1
Another mention for the perennial airbag light.

My two have been illuminated for several months now. The old trick of wiggling the connectors hasn't worked this time. I have cut out the OE connectors and replaced them with terminal blocks to no avail - lights are still on.

I've got hold of Planet (Peugeot's Lexia) and this tells me there is a fault in a pre-tensioner connection.

Is there another connection somewhere, other than the one visible between the floorpan and the seat? Is there a trick I'm missing to clear the faults.

There is no immediate panic to get this done as the MOT isn't until next year, but I'd like to get them cleared if only to tidy up the dashboard!

a pre-tensioner is situated at the static end of the seat belt , it goes off and pulls the seat belt tight in an accident. Some times these operate and its noticable because the stalk pulls down and it is then shorter than one which hasn't. I've seen these activated but not the air bag. There will be a connector at the floor end of the seatbelt stalk. Wink

Hi Coco, the only other connections are the ones that are on the p/tenioners detonators themselves and the main ecu under the center console.
If you want to eliminate the p/tentioners try placing a 2.2 or 3.3 ohm resistor in the connection under the seat (in place of the p/tensioner)and then read the diagnostic. Do this for both seat belts.
As always play safe with these and disconnect battery before playing! :whistle:
This is for the drivers air bag but the procedures the same.
