Hey,
So I have been battling with an srs airbag fault for a year now and I really can't get myself to pay someone a lot of money to turn it off. However, I figured out that when I lay on the horn for 10 or fifteen seconds, the fault clears and everything is fine until I hit a bump and it comes back on. I'm guessing there is some kind of connection behind the steering wheel, but I was hoping to get some advice before I dig in there. Thanks in advance,

Hi,

Are all the buttons on the steering wheel working? Radio, Horn and Cruise Control?

If yes, i find it unlikely that only the connection of the airbag is bad in the rotary coupler.

What message does your display show?

I had an 'Airbag fault' a couple of times, mainly after re-adjusting the steering wheel when we change drivers. First, we thought its the connection in the seat for the side airbag.

I fixed it by opening the connection of the airbag harness under the dash panel, cleaning it and reconnecting. So it was just a bad plug. The airbag wiring harness is yellow and quite easy to identify.

Do you have side-airbags?

Hey thanks for the replies.

Yes, all of the button work properly on my steering wheel. My car does have side airbags, and I cleaned all the connection underneath the seats, and behind the glovebox and reconnected them. I am still getting the "airbag fault" message when I start my car.. But if i push on the horn it goes off for a little bit.

When you say you opened the connection to the airbag harness by going under the dash panel, do you mean on the driver's side or the passenger side?

Hey,

I did that on the drivers side only.

Just remove the panel under the steering and you see the yellow cable.

cheers.
