Panda 2014 Airbag ECU - where to get one

Hi everyone,

My wife has a 2014 1.2 Easy Panda, the dash recently popped up and showed airbag light, and the text fuel cut-off unavailable. I've got MES and the cable set, so scanned the car, the bags looked OK ~2Ohm, and the seat belt clips worked OK, scanning the airbag ECU I got a couple of codes B0100 and B0102, but it couldn't clear them, one being an 'internal error'.

I tried to do the proxi reset, and this failed at the Airbag ECU. Thinking it was faulty - its not had a crash, I've pulled out the box and sent to a crash-data company to check it over, apparently it's full of water, and knackered, so I'm looking for a replacement one?

It's a 051951646 part no, and I've tried a few breakers but got no joy, and they are quite expensive on ebay plus no history or guarantee!

Any pointers would be helpful, plus how it got full of water in the first place, she's said its wet in that area before, but when I've checked it was OK... I'm wondering if it could be the scuttle drains blocked and overflowing internally?

Thanks!

Hi


Sorry to hear about this

Yes scuttle drains are a prime suspect..
Unless youve cleaned them religiously

Look in 500 section for replacement info

Thanks, will look at the scuttle, but the Airbag ECU is not the same as the 500, that's prone to die as I understand so quite a few around, the one in the Panda is reliable so not many about!

Probably from one has been scrapped for something like a failed rear axle is probably your best bet

... or rear-ended (like my previous Panda was). No airbag deployment (that only happens with front or side impact).

Re: Panda 2014 Airbag ECU - where to get one

Cleaned out the scuttle, was very blocked with mush. Got a new Airbag ECU now! Installed, and seems to be working and talking to the car OK, but performing the PROXI reset, as the mileage is flashing, it keeps failing on the Airbag node with EOL Failed, tried both the pre and post 2014 PROXI resets in MES - any pointers?
