Replaced Golf mk6 stereo and triggered airbag light, Help!
« on: September 17, 2018, 07:12:25 pm »
Hi Guys, this is my first post here, needed some help from you VW Guruís. I installed a RCD330G. The mechless version. While I did that I removed the passenger airbag warning light to remove some cables from the old stereo tapped into the Climatronic. I made the mistake of switching on the ignition to test without reconnecting the light.

Now the car is giving me a airbag warning light... pretty silly thing to do, I know!

Is there any way to maybe unplug the battery or something and clear the light, or do I have to go to a VW dealer and shell out mega bucks for a vagcom? 

Anyone with a vagcom that can help in central auckland. Iíll come to you and bring a six pack to show my appreciation! :)

Not an expert but disconnecting the battery for some period of time should reset the code

I can do it for you if you're willing to travel Botany.
You may find someone closer though if you want to wait.

Thanks for the offer of assistance, I managed to find someone with a cable who reset the light for me!

Next project... get the reverse camera installed...

Unplugging the battery doesnít reset this light. Tried it overnight and it didnít work for me.  :(
