    I've already determined which Airbag diagram matches my car ... pg. EWD-162 (from Nov. 2004) ... the next diagram is EWD-166 (from May 2005). The build date on my car is 04.04.2005.

    Although the Airbag Control Module plug pin-outs are identical for both EWD-162 and EWD-166 ... which would include cars built up to the next wiring change EWD-190 (May 2006).

    One other thing I noticed is that the quick-release plug latch on the airbag module is completely gone on my car ... don't know what they did to it. So the plug is just pressed into the airbag module ... possibly not making complete contact? That's something else I'll have to check when I get back into it. I probably should graft on a new plug anyways ... since they kind of butchered up the wires, and didn't shrink-wrap them when they did their "modifications".

    Don't you think you should change the air bag harness no?

    Is it tied into the main dash harness ... or is it a separate harness?

    What does it matter I reckon you will only get one from the pick and pull anyway?

    I probably would Jack ... I sure can't afford a new one!

    I briefly looked online (just to get a part number) at http://www.realoem.me/Volkswagen/RDW and didn't see an "Airbag Wiring Harness" listed individually.

    Since I connected the driver's door crash sensor DIRECTLY to the Airbag Control Module plug (and bypassed the entire harness) ... and it STILL didn't work, I'm thinking it may be a fault with the plug itself or the pins / contacts withing the plug. They obviously had it off quite a few times.

    The crash sensor fault is the only airbag fault I'm getting ... that tells me that the wiring going to the other airbag components is good.

    Hopefully I'll get into it next week.

    Have you toned out the pins end to end to harness plug & at module, did you check all fuses, further did you sand the connectors with a fiberglass pen then install Stable contact enhancement 22A?

    Have you observed resistance readings in controller diagnostics and compared to meter and sensor?

    EXAMPLE:

    Have you compared resistance values to right crash sensor at module with left?

    did you check all fuses
    Yes, see my earlier post ... i pulled virtually ALL the fuses and checked them.

    2.

    Good idea Jack! I was going to plug the driver's sensor into the passenger's harness ... just to see if it was good. But I like your idea better ... I don't have to take the passenger's door skin off! If I check the complete sensor circuit at the module plug ... I should get about the same resistance for both drivers / passengers side.

    I know the driver's door harness is good, I replaced that ... so the wires and plug / socket at the door jamb are good, and everything on the door works consistently (fuel pump, interior lights, windows, door locks, trunk, and gas release). But I will check continuity again ... since I just purchased a new Multi-meter (my old one was probably 30 years old!).

    3.
    did you sand the connectors with a fiberglass pen then install Stable contact enhancement 22A?
    I haven't yet ... although the plug looked good, with no corrosion ... I didn't realize it might be a connection problem when I had it apart. I've got some Deoxit that I've used before that seems to work good.

    If all of the above fails to resolve the crash sensor short ... I'll check the remaining Airbag Module wires.

    Door harness is new (I mentioned this previously) from eBay, supposed to be genuine VW (part # 1K5971120H) ... new in box ... $108.95. After reading of all the problems people were having with early MK5 Jetta driver's door harnesses ... I decided to buy new rather than used.

    It fixed my other problems with door locks / interior lights / fuel pump ...
