Airbag light on, OBD 0532, Golf MK3 '95
« on: 25 June 2012, 09:57 »
The car came with a shining airbag-light when I bought it. Seller had no info on this. She did have the generator changed, as that was worn out recently, but I don't know if that is related. The car is manufactured nov. 1994. The ABS-light goes on and off normally at startup, but the airbag-light comes back on and stays on constantly.

I have so far looked for loose cabling beneath the front seats. I can't find any cables going into the seats. Are there any cables going into the seat of a golf 3 '95? Also, I disassembled the horizontal and vertical panels around the seatbelt pretensioner on the left side to check for faulty cabling; I even dismounted the explosive tube to look under it: There was no cable entering the the tube or the rest of the assembly. The only cable in the vincinity was from the door-sensor button, passing the pretensioner vertically by.

Have you checked the cable going into the airbag in the steering wheel?

No, I have not. Do I need to take the steering wheel off to check that, or just the enclosure?

Just the airbag. You'll find two 5mm allen bolts on the back of the steering wheel, undo those and the airbag pops off. Check that the cable is connected to the airbag. If it is, I suggest taking the steering wheel and column cowl off and checking all of the cable.
