Will this fix work on a 2006 Jetta 2.0T
Fixxxer, this seems like some really great info your helping everyone else out with. I have the same problem (00588), but when I scan my air bag mod with my VagCom it also comes up with 00532- Supply Voltage 07-10 Signal too low-Intermittent. Since both these codes come up together will you "under the seat fix" still work??? I sure hope so. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
Just to be clear, the connector pair is totally removed and replaced with wires, right? Or do you simply extend the cable by splicing in wires to prevent stressing the connection as the seat slides back and forth?<p>Thanks
Fixxer-<p>Am I understanding right to believe that you just need to do away with the yellow connector? <p>so, essentially..adding in a connector like this would be the same as jumper'ing the wires and just making long solid wires by using insulated crimping tubes or something.(similar, maybe not exact)In order to be able to freely remove the seats without re-cutting and fixing.<p><br><IMG SRC="http://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/woeimages/Electrical/14403.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>
Fixxxer,<p> Will this fix work on a 2004 Beetle convertible? I have the same error "drivers side air bag igniter Limit HIgh". I replaced the drivers side seatbelt as it had a few broken wires at the buckle. This fixed the seat belt code, but the airbag light is still on with the igniter high code.<p>Thanks!!
this maybe a dumb question but based on this photo, <A HREF="http://www.flickr.com/photos/27466575@N03/3132287793" TARGET="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/2...87793</A>, the wires on each side of the plug do not match up. I am assuming I am following pin to pin with a one to one connection. Is this correct?<p>Thanks
You definitely want to match by pin #'s. I realized that is why he says to leave a short length of wire when you cut off the connectors; so you can tell what color is where. If the colors going into both connectors matched, you could easily see which ones to connect.<p>I thought the instructions wre ambiguos when he said "connector" instead of "connectors"; "connector" could have meant you leave some length of the wires so you can splice in the new wires and see how to reconnect.
You will have to have the light reset after you replace the connectors. Try to find someone in your area that has the VAG-COM device. Or you can order a device to reset it on ebay. Make sure the error code is the same as that in the start of this thread first.
I'm going to go ahead and post in the most recent thread instead of posting a new one, sorry for the highjack.<p>I've got the 00588 code paired with a "00654 - Seatbelt Tensioner Igniter; Driver Side (n153) 32-10 - Resistance too High - Intermittent"<p>I'm just wondering would the bypass of the connector work to fix both problems?<p>The light stayed off for now but if it comes back I'd like to prepare a plan of action.
Probably should have been a bit more specific. The under-seat repair is for the side airbag ignitor only. Just the one built into the side of your seat near your head.<p>When you cut out that connector, bu sure you splice in a piece of wire 3 inches long between each joined section to compensate for the removed plug or you may get another Airbag light because the resistance value the Airbag module is looking for will be different.<p>You won't need to add another quick release plug because this mod will not affect the removal of your seats because the entire seat harness plugs into connectors on the floor.
i need an explanation concerning my jetta ...<br>so last winter i had the exact same code:<br>00588 - Airbag Igniter; Driver Side (N95)<br>33-10 - Resistance too Low - Intermittent<p>each time the weather was really bad with temperature below freezing (20F), i would find this code ...<br>i read in a tech bulletin (01-00-07) saying that this code which appeared with the low temperature is related with the wiring harness behind the clock spring ...i changed the harness in front and behind the clock spring jut in case ..and no more code !!!<br> BUT after changing the harnesses , the temperatures never dropped that low ...<p>will i have some problem the next winter or i was right about changing the harness behind the clock spring ???<p>thans fixxxer for your answer!!!<br>
The reset device, which is about $40, only does a reset and does not read codes. The cable with software, which is about $15, uses a scaled back version of the VAG-COM software but should be able to read most codes and do the reset. I'd send questions to the seller before you buy, but that is what they told me. I ended up not having to buy either.
FYI OP the N95 is the driver side front airbag( steering wheel). I don't recommend going and splicing the wires under the seat for that. Be careful when working on airbag systems and wires. Just because a certified vw tech says something works...... There is a technical solution for seat harnesses, yes, but that has nothing to do with a driver side front N95 bag. N195 and N95 are 2 different airbags. Please folks, don't go just cutting into your harness because someone over the internet told you so. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">
I just replaced my 2000 golf seats with 2004 GLI seats. I spliced in the old connector from the old seats, and the airbag light is on. Now I read your advice.<p>So I'll cut out the connectors, replace with wire pieces. How about the smaller connector going to the seat belt on the driver's side? Cut out that connector too?<p>After hooking up the battery again, will the light go off, or do I need to re-set "codes" with "vagcom"? I don't have any special tools to check codes.<p>Thanks for your reply!
i dont have vagcom but my light did go on today while driving, assuming that this is the problem, how do i clear the code? just disconect battery? <p>p.s. those ebay things are garbage i bought one and it didnt work<br>
I have change the passenger seat in my 2006 RS4 for a standard A4 seat(bony assed wife) no I don't want to change her either(no comments please). Now my airbag light is on will this fix work for me. This car is in Ireland so does a European spec car make a differance to this fix. Please any info would be greately appericated.
For anyone in doubt.
