  3. air bag warning light

    The air bag warning light is showing on my dash board and has been doing so since i removed the drivers seat , do u think if i reset the ecu it might reset the warning light as i have put the seat back in and connected all the cables again but the light has not gone out??

    Cheers

    No it won't reset. You'll have to get it reset by Holden or someone with a Tech2

    if you cycled the ignition with the seat disconnected the SDM will have logged a code, you need to get it cleared with a tech2.

    I would get it fixed ASAP. Your airbag might not deploy in an accident as it has registered a fault.....
