    I replaced my steering wheel and about a month later my airbag light came on. My vcds doesn't find a fault?
    Should it be showing a fault code? I see module 15 in the gateway scan but no data in the scan. How do I debug this? I suspect the ground inside the steering wheel but would like to use vcds to debug this if possible.

    Yes, 01-Engine and 15-Airbags are conspicuous in there absence from this scan.

    Of course if the airbag module is completely off-line, the airbag light will be on. The light is on by default and a happy airbag module turns it off.

    I would start by checking all fuses.

    In addition to Uwe's suggested path....

    The ground for the airbag module maybe inadequate too, causing the K line to have an issue & since other modules are seeing the 01 & 15 on CAN without broadcast error.

    To test this theory check it and block 125 values in respective other modules for CAN broadcast and trace the ground or blown fuse.

    In rare cases cluster could be faulty or harness plug back side of cluster could be contaminated with coolant or corrosion bridge FOD.
