Hi All,

I have an MOT due and my car has a permanent airbag light on. Can i disable the light with VagCom, not too fussed about the fault just worried about an MOT failure.

Thanks in Advance........Andrew

Wrong Title it'sA5 if that matters

Hi Bruce,
I have the fault code and it seems to be a faulty or incorrectly wired sensor:

Not sure if the image is working but the fault code is:
9443859 - Drivers Front Airbag Crash Sensor
B101A 15 [137] - Open or Short to Plus
MIL ON - Confirmed - Tested Since Memory Clear


I have looked around the front top of the radiator but cannot find the sensors to swap and test.

Any help would be appreciated..........Andrew
