Hello
Can anyone help. I have a 2009 Passat B6 estate. The airbag light came on and I took it to the garage. They ran a scan which came up with these codes
1. 00589 001 Airbag detonator. passenger side-N131 Upper limit exceeded resistance too high - faults 1
2. 01638 008 Side air bag collision detector, rear drivers side -G256 Implausable signal - faults 84
3. 01638 007 Side air bag collision detector, rear drivers side -G256 faults 232
4. 01639 008 Crash-Sensor for Side Airbag; Rear Passenger Side (G257) Impausable signal faults 17
5. 01639 007 Crash-Sensor for Side Airbag; Rear Passenger Side (G257) faults 182
The two rear crash sensors have been replaced and we still have the same codes
I took the car to another 2 garages both performed diagnostics. Got the same results but have no idea what the fault is.
They have suggested it could be the wiring, could be the airbag or could be the control box. Is there anyway of finding out the problem. I am not able to do much myself and the thought of paying out for a garage to do all of these things until they find the culprit seems a very expensive way of solving the problem.
I have already paid for the replacement of crash sensors and 3 diagnostic reports.
