Greetings,

I'm trying to clear a few errors on my airbag. The previous owner had a minor fender-bender (and as such replaced the front fender and a headlight). The airbags themselves were not deployed. Now that I bought the car, I want to at least reduce the number of airbag error messages to something the actual components that need to be repaired or replaced.

What%20can%20I%20tell%20about%20these%20airbag%20error%20codes.png






This is the error message that I get when I try to enter the access code for the airbag module (even after recycling the ignition and taking the car for a test drive for a few minutes). :
Airbag%20Password%20error.png





I want to re-calibrate (or zero) the seatbelt tension system (as well as seat occupancy), but I just want to verify that attempting to do so will NOT trigger the deployment of the airbags if I do not fix the other reported error messages first. Having the airbags accidentally deploy right now would be a real inconvenience.


My autoscan (with the numerous error messages) can be found below.

I want to re-calibrate (or zero) the seatbelt tension system (as well as seat occupancy), but I just want to verify that attempting to do so will NOT trigger the deployment of the airbags if I do not fix the other reported error messages first. Having the airbags accidentally deploy right now would be a real inconvenience.
Someone should correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there's anything that can be calibrated with the tensioners. I don't see any issue with the passenger occupancy detection in your scan. If restraints didn't deploy, based on the scan above, it looks to me like perhaps there's something unplugged. Have inspected the connections?

I figured since the message showed that the "upper limit exceeded", I figured that I simply calibrate it to zero. My seatbelts do not fully retract back into the B-pillar by themselves (due to normal usage over time), hence I thought that was one of the error messages. I wanted to get the number of SRS messages error messages down so that I can find the root cause of the issue. I have looked at the connections under each of the front seats, so I can vouch for those. I don't know if it is safe to remove the internal covering of the B-pillar to look at those connections without triggering the deployment of the airbag (when I switch on the ignition).

If the car has been in a collision then chances are the seat belt igniters have expired.......however, if you have a short to ground ........it should be verified using the WD and "isolating" for safety......... all the bags or pyrotechnic devices.......... before measuring for resistance.

I didn't know that these items have expiration. I'll take the time over the weekend to look at ALL the wiring, since I too have the concerns about shorting to ground.
I wished that there were actual measuring blocks for this.

you have faults on the following equipment..

passenger seat belt
driver seat belt
passenger airbag
driver airbag
airbag cut off switch..

generally when you see all these faults in the airbag system, the car has been involved in a crash,
the belt tensioners , driver and passenger airbag, have been deployed..after replacement vcds clears them..

you say the airbags didn't deploy but something has gone on with the passenger and driver airbags.(replaced?) it would be a coincident both record faults,
the reason i say this is that the airbag cut off switch in an accident has no function or protection its sole purpose is up to the owner whether he wants it on or off, that being unplugged raises questions as to why it was unplugged..

lastly if all equipment is installed correctly and the faults do not clear it means new airbag module..
hope that helps..

The dashbord is perfectly intact where the passenger airbag is (like it came from the factory), so I can vouch for the passenger one on the dashboard.
The steering wheel looks about 90% OK (due to a slight discoloration from sunlight and normal wear).

The sections that cover the B-pillar seem to be sagging a bit (common VW issue with these models).

The airbag cutoff switch is in the ON position, so I'll have to check that circuit over the weekend.
Is the airbag module just a single unit, or one unit per airbag?

its a single control unit for all the triggers and sensors..
normally found beneath the gear stick area or at the back of the center console in foot wells depending on model of car.

You may have solved my issue. The previous owner did indeed run a pair of RCA cables under the carpet in that area to the back of the head unit to feed some aftermarket amplifiers. In my hasty process of trying to revert the audio to the stock setup, I yanked on the RCA cable in that area before giving up and scheduling a day where I can remove the head unit the proper way to disconnect the cables. I also realized that he must have wired the switch for the amplifier to an existing harness in the glovebox area. I'll check it out over the weekend and disconnect it to verify that it really isn't in any way affecting the SRS.

For the airbag system, an item that has "Upper Limit Exceeded", that can be interpreted as "open circuit". A cut wire for example, or as noted here, more likely deployed seat belts.

In many cases, if you have a pyrotechnic unplugged, you will get a "Lower Limit Exceeded" because there is a metal clip that shorts the wires together when you unplug most pyrotechnic items. This is done for safety reasons, with the wires shorted together when unplugged, you can't get a static charge on one wire, and have it discharge to the other when you plug a pyrotechnic back up.

To that end, go into the Airbag module, MVB group 001.3 and 001.4 for live data on the front seat belts. Does the value change between Too Low and Too High as you plug and unplug the belts? If so, you need belts.

Thanks. I'll test the MVB for the belts when I get home.

I've learnt quite a bit from that last post
