Have you tried the 350Z method?
Search on youtube for 350Z airbag light.
That was how I reset my car's airbag light.

Yip, did the 350Z video too. No luck unfortunately.
Did your airbag light come on just out of the blue? Or was it like mine - after an impact? I think maybe because mine was after an impact theres something more serious going on maybe.

My light came on without any impact.
When you use the 350Z method, it will flash in a certain sequence and you can use this to determine which airbag is causing the problem.

Ok, thanks Johan. I think maybe the impact messed up a sensor or something. I'll wait for graham to get back.

On another note, I got a quote for a replacement bullbar now that mine is bent and scratched - R35k!!! Doubt insurance is gonna accept that one. :(

I can also offer a diagnostic cable, but I am in Hoedspruit.
So if you tend to go to the bush, just give me a pm and we might be able to sort it out before the 15th.

Thank you very much for the offer, but I'll just hang in there until graham is back now I reckon.

I had to take to the troll to botswana over the weekend for work. I just pulled the airbag fuse as I didnt want any unexpected popping occuring. :lol:
