hey everyone,

Just tonight i was mucking around installing my 4 channel amp. Mainly just running RCAs behind the headunit ect.

Anyway, after this was all done, i turned on the car to hear the stereo, and was greeted with an 'SRS Airbag Fault' and also a 'ABS Fault'

Ive tried searching but found nothing on either fault so im asking here. Will be going to Holden tomorrow arvo if i cant get any help off here before hand. Anyone have any idea what it will cost me to take it to them for a diagnose/fix?

Also, is it ok to drive with the warnings constantly on dash?(got work in the morning!)

did you remove the seat without disconnecting the battery?,

yeah you can drive it, but if you have an accident those system may not operate, make sure all the fuses are ok

Holy crap yes i removed the passanger seat without disconnecting the battery!

What does this do? I didnt think that the seat was anything to do with the battery, but well there you go?

Would this have caused both faults? Just ive had the ABS fault once or twice in the past, but it went away after re starting the car and was never to be seen again, until tonight.

Where/what fuses should i check?

This could actually be a sign that your battery is on it's way out. We had similar problems recently with the SV6 and it was rectified by fitting a new battery (one of the cells was completely dead).

yes, the abs will flash up if the battery is low on charge or on its way out,

you will need a compatible scan tool or tech2 at holden to remove the srs fault

Anyone know of somewhere in Brisbane that could do this for me, that isnt Holden? As Holden arent open today, and im guessing Holden will be the most expensive place i could possibly take it.

Buy yourself an OBD2 scantool.
They aren't that expensive.
You can clear any faults yourself.

Like I said, if you're getting ABS fault warnings, get your battery checked/changed. More than likely the other fault(s) will clear as well.
