after diagnosing an airbag light as being the pass occ mat (following threads on both zroadster sites), i got one of those plugs on ebay to solve the issue, only to realise after (blonde moment) that i dont have a passenger airbag (this was when i fixed alarm, looked up to airbag position and was empty). i gather its an option on early 98 cars.
well today i had the seats out to fix the seatbushes, thanks aceman, and thought i'd see if there was a pass matt and connector needed, but as expected no. so the pass matt canx plug was a waste of time and will be for sale, but thats a diff matter
so, what are the other causes of the airbag light i can check? i have another day off tomorrow, so plan to do the drivers bush, and as per the pass seat today, i will clean all elec connectors, but before i get the light reset by my indy, what else can i look at?
thanks all, i have searched, but all seem to point at pass occ mat, sorry if i repeat a thread i missed on my search
also i found the foam under the carpet on pass side to be soaking wet! clean water as no smell, but a lot of it... but i'll do some searching then post another thread if i dont find info i need
p.s: this post is on both zroadster sites, so if your a dual member which a lot of us seem to be, then please only reply on one site
not as such. one was used to reset the light by the trader i got the car from, but, when i got back from that first epic drive, the missus decided to play with the pass seat, and the light came one again.
have just invested in a service light reset tool, and was tempted to try the car to laptop cables and use INPA etc (f that would reset the code?) but maybe a code reader and airbag code reader would be an option too
From your description it sounds like a dodgy connection under the passenger seat. Wouldn't entirely rule the wet patch out either - water and electrics never go well together. Whatever it is sounds intermittent, which is why your garage "fixed" it the first time.
If you ever happen to be passing this way, you are more than welcome to drop in for a free read of the codes
used my new usb cable to read the codes, passenger restraint... so, im hoping its a loose/dry connection, and have cleaned the connectors, reinsulated and reset the fault/airbag light. have moved the pass seat around and so far so good.
now onto another issue that has risen its head... but thats another thread
