Hi all, last week the air bag warning light came so I thought just as I did to my last 75 I will get rid of the connectors and solder the wires together ( on drivers and passenger) but alas no luck. I have been having occasional trouble with the steering wheel radio controls so I am wondering if the fault is related to the air bag on the steering wheel
They are separate cables, but they all run through the 'clock spring' unit. If you allowed it to turn with the wheel off, and didn't return it to the same place, you may have strained the flexi tape inside it. That could cause symptoms with both. Also, yo may not have got the connector back in properly. Unlikely, but possible.
Hi thanks all I have done some searching and found on my facelift 54 plate these sensors were fitted: and they seem different to the Mk1. Has anyone fitted these and are they in the same area.... thanks
Yippee!! solved the problem after going through all the other possible causes it was the rotary coupler and in a way I should have had a clue because I was having intermittent steering remote radio control problems, didn't link the two. Could have spared me the time and expense of getting an airbag ECU (Engine Control Unit) and a side impact sensor which I now have spare
Well done! I have the same problem with the V8....and no intermittent radio problems, so might be in need of what you have! Just got to re-check the connectors (again) in case it is something simple, first.
