Airbag light on

my car is a punto active sport 1.2, the airbag light has been on for a while, but this year i believe it has become a mot failure so need to sort it out.

i brought an ecu scanner off amazon but it cant find the code for the air bag fault (


) so i have read on this forum of a cable you can buy off ebay to diy with a laptop. but im not sure which one to get, i havent got a solder iron so would rather get one ready to use. can someone link me please


edit; didnt think of checking amazon, are these the ones?? and is it cheaper from amazon or ebay??

Re: Airbag light on

top one wont read airbag, best check on fes site if it can do mk1 airbags and what adapter you need, mk1 is not obd11 http://www.fiatecuscan.net/

on a mk1 you can remove bulb and fit a non airbag steering wheel and remove pasenger air bag if it has one, then it will pass the mot as most mk1's didnt have airbag so tester wont expect to see one.
If the airbag light is on and/or they have passed there service date they probably wont work anyway

Re: Airbag light on

FIAT PUNTO '03 1.2 8V

KL3 - KKL/VagCom interface with ADAPTER CABLE 2 (or modified interface with K-line connected to pin 3)
OBDKey 3- OBDKey 1.40 interface with ADAPTER CABLE 2 (or modified interface with K-line connected to pin 3)
A2 - ADAPTER CABLE 2

so from that i guess i need KKL/VagCom interface with ADAPTER CABLE 2 and the software to get this to work?

will this work

Re: Airbag light on

you checked if you need the free or paid for version of fes? if you need the paid version you may aswell buy the whole bundle http://www.gendan.co.uk/category_161.html

bundle with paid licence http://www.gendan.co.uk/product_FESPKG.html

or you could add your location and another member who already has the kit may offer to do it for 10-20 quid

Re: Airbag light on

Can anyone tell me exactly where are the connectors that can cause the airbag light to come on?

Mine says Passenger Switch intermittent fault. Ive cleared it a few times which sometimes its worked but every now and again you can see the red airbag light flash.

When it properly comes on both red and amber lights come on. Ive checked the system state and both airbags are active so its not like they wont deploy. Just irritating.

Re: Airbag light on

SOULZ, i had a similar fault on a customers punto last week, after numerous attempts at clearing the codes, fault was still bringing light on, so i took the ecu off and cleaned the terminals with leckie spray made sure the terminals on the loom were o.k. be careful though they are minute and bend easy, plug on and off a few million times and cleared the codes and hey presto i havent had the light up for a week. try that and see if it works, good luck.

The main ECU? As in on engine or is there an airbag ecu?

Also do i just spray the terminals and give them a wipe or leave it to stew for 5 ?

light will still come back, this is a well documented fault on here, an upgraded loom is required, it is less than a fiver from fiat, part number for it is even on here some where.

edit here you go

f0051786225
retail price 4.22 + vat


doing anything else and charging customers for it is just conning them.

Is it a partial loom upgrade so it would be something i can fit myself or will it be an electrician jobby?

Also do i just ring up fiat quoting that part number and order one?
