Drove down to Coolangatta Airport this morning. After picking a couple of friends up the Airbag light on the dash stayed lit.
Plugged in the VAG and got 00588 – Airbag Igniter – Driver Side – N95.
Reset the fault and it hasn’t come back yet.
Checked out a couple of websites after I got out of the car and found this little piece of advice “When “Short to positive” or “Short to ground” is found, DO NOT CLEAR THE DTC. This can cause the airbag to deploy. See repair manual for more information.”
Thankfully I didn’t set the airbag off.
