Of all the troubles you mentioned, I can tell you this: Airbag failure message is common. Chances are that the weight sensor underneath your seat needs some adjustement. Nothing to worry you. The CD player acts like that sometimes on my stilo too. I found no solution as yet. I have learned to live with it. On the other hand you can always ask your local dealer to replace it. As far as the other things mentioned (steering wheel and light) is the first time I hear of this kind of trouble. Good luck.

Hi Frank,

For Airbag message it's a problem of sensors in the seats, dealer must replace them, for someone it's enough a reset of ECU (but only if the problems it isn't caused by sensors in the seats)...

For steering wheel maybe it's a problem of electric power steering, I already heard this problem... however resolved whit replacing....

For the CD I have already heard this problem in Italian forum, but whith CD changer... not for CD player, someone say that his dealer resolved it replacing CD changer (in warranty!)...

For door light, I never heard this, tell it to your dealer...

Good Stilo Frank :)!

Roberto
