Hey guys,

I just bought my 00 Audi TT on monday. Joy! However I was detailing the inside today...cleaned it ...took the seats out...center console...etc. Anyways I put everything back in and I have a big fat red light that says " AIR BAG " now in my cluster. Anyone know how i can reset this without going to the stealer?


Thanks guys,

~Chris

when you open your glove box there is a place where you can put your key to turn the airbag on and off, idk if your light means that the airbag is turned off but just thought id try and help

u need a vag-com to reset it but u can try this

disconnect the battery for 30 mins but u should keep ur radio code handy becasue the radio might go into SAFE mode

I dont like the idea of un plugging my battery...anyways I called the dealer and they said it is $42.00 just to reset the air bags. COMPLETE horse ****.


Is there anything else I can do? Will normal shop's have this machine?

they might just call and ask if they have a VAG-COM
most VW/AUDI specialist should have one

one option............... as AIRBAGS is classed at a major fault.... if you unplug the battery the light will still stay on...

your only option is to go onto VAG-COM and reset the code... --- now you have 2 options..... go to the dealer and pay their price for getting rid of the code.. OR buy a lead from ebay and download a copy of shareware VAG-COM and reset the codes yourself....
The only risk is....... if god for bid you was in a smash the air bags wont deploy with the light on as they are disabled...

i would get a copy of vag and a lead if i was u for future issues... its worth every penny as you can gett them from ebay for less than £20.. and a shareware version of vag is free...

where abouts are you as i have a copy??

I'm in south dakota. My question is what is this machine? ...is it hand held?...

I also noticed my cup holders (between my seats) there is a plug under a plastic cover... it looks almost like an ethernet plug... is this where they do the testing? ...or is this for a phone?

ross-tech can supply a free vag-com download for your lap top. the obd 2 plug (in your car) to usb 2 plug (on your lap top can be found on ebay. Both are great places.
