Airbag light on – Faulty airbag system.

Did you know that an airbag light on is now a UK MOT failure. This is a very good safety introduction as it stops a vehicle with a defective airbag system from passing a MOT.

Understanding the airbag light.

When you first switch your vehicle ignition on the airbag light will illuminated momentary and switch off. This process displays a brief self test (proving the light is present and functional). This is 100% normal on a correctly functioning vehicle.

If a airbag light is on permanently as fault has been detected in the system, the airbags will not deploy in the event of an accident, it really is as simple as that. 

Diagnosing and repairing.

Obviously having a working airbag system is important. Can go beyond a what a dealer can provide as we can diagnose, repair and code out certain values if required such as: Seat occupancy sensor removal coding.

We charge a flat rate of £66.50 + VAT for electronic diagnostic of the airbag system.
