      Hi all,

      Looking for a little help. Just bought an 06 gti with 90k miles and it's kicking a few airbag codes. Not sure what I should do:

      00589 airbag igniter 1: passenger side*
      (N131) sporadic 002 lower limit exceeded

      00590 airbag igniter 2: passenger side
      (N132) sporadic 002 lower limit exceeded

      00588 airbag igniter driver side
      (N95) sporadic 001 upper limit exceeded

      And help would be greatly appreciated

      Personally I wouldn't feel confident fooling around with explosives -- er, with the airbag igniter system.

      Armed (no pun) with those error codes, I'd take the car to a good independent repair shop who has access to VW repair procedures on-line (and most do these days), and let him fool around with the igniters.

      Had this happen as well, take it to your closest dealer, it should technically still be covered under warranty
