  1. Vag-Com and OBD11 Coding
    I was wondering if there's any trick to reinstalling a used crash sensor where the position was previously throwing a code? A new sensor went in on one side and I was able to clear the code without it coming back. On the other side I put in a second hand sensor but it is throwing the same code...

    I've a 2000 Passat 1.9 tdi saloon. The (passenger ?) airbag warning light has come on and stays on. Also, after about 100yards, the message "Airbag Fault" shows in the screen - but then goes out. My local VW garage has diagnosed that the front crash sensor is faulty - and they want an arm and a...

    Here are a few crash tests to make you think... The first is a 2001 Passat. Frontal crash is at 40mph, side impact by car at 30mph and side impact by pole at only 18mph. The second and third videos are at a little higher speeds and have startling results!

What resistance should I read across the 2 pins of the sensor? What resistance across the 2 pins of the connector (car...
