Thanks Meatball - had a good look under the seat and re-clipped all the plugs in - was wondering if there was a rest required via VAG ?

If you didn't disconnect the battery first then the ECU will have logged an intermittent wiring fault when you disconnected it.

You'll need to plug VAG COM in and clear the codes in the Airbag section.

thanks Phatty - didnt disconnect the battery so is likely to be as per your advice. Any one near solihull with a VAG COM you can recommend?

I think you are close ish if you want to pop down we can re-set it for you, we get it all the time swopping seats removing belts etc, only takes 2 mins and we wouldnt charge you:ILU:

Does the loom from the passenger side go to the drivers side, I have a air bag fault on my caravelle, vat om says it is a fault on passenger side, but I have soldered the joints up and reset the codes, only for the light to come back on 5 mins later. Really had enough of the light now and want it sorting, anyone got any ideas?

I had the same problem with my T5.1, took to my local VW dealer and they reset the fault for free no less, it should cost about £80). it turns out that if the ignition is switched on (i was listening the to the radio) then it logs a fault and it wont reset until the fault code is removed

Cheers
