I recently had to replace the ignition switch on my wife's 1997 Jetta. When I took the steering wheel off, the airbag clock spring fell apart. I tried to reassemble it and it seemed to work OK for a few weeks. Then the airbag light came on last week. I bought and installed a new airbag clock spring, but the airbag light is still on.
My normal Actron OBDII scanner did not show any error codes, and resetting the codes did not turn off the airbag light.
So, I am wondering what the easiest/cheapest way to turn off the light is.
From my searches it looks like I need vag-com and an interface, but I don't know which items to buy. The Ross-Tech site lists some very expensive products!
I also want to retain the safety of the vehicle, thus no bulb pulling or resistor hacks.
