Airbag

Has anyone had any problems with 500L airbag?

My airbag failure light has come on, I have took it to an electrics garage they have said it is a problem with my passenger airbag but it will have to go to fiat cos they will have to strip the car to check it and has said that it will be costly.

Just wondering if anyone has had a problem with this and how much it will cost?

hi,

how old is the car?

might be worth enquiring about any safety related recalls , etc.
DVLA website may help here..

did the plug-in place give the fault code, and description of the error message?

Re: Airbag

Itís a 63 plate. Thanks just tried this online only recall has been for the heating that I have just had done. Not sure, when I took it to my normal garage he put it on diagnostics machine and said it said something about high voltage and recommend taking it to electrics garage. When I took to them they said because itís passenger airbag they couldnít touch it.

Re: Airbag

Hi,
Did the airbag light come on right after the heater recall was done? If so go back to the dealer and get them to check that they have not disturbed any plugs while doing the work.
It does look like it's a big job to get the airbag out if it really has failed.

The '63' relates to a UK registation in the latter part of 2013..

So yes around 4.5 years in service.



Good call on the warranty work advice.

Most issues Ive ever investigated involve unexpected .

Calling Cards... where people have attempted ..repairs... before
