    Hi everyone, i just need help with something. My vx keeps throwing the airbag light and code on the scan tool 247, i think. I was just wondering what do I need to replace to fix it? Thank you

    A good place to start is the steering wheel clockspring and the censor box under the CD holder.
    After having a Kangaroo go down the side of the Acclaim our light was on for around 4 years and that was with several visits to Holden (insurance claim) and they could not correct so I gave up. After replacing both of these parts the light is no longer on.

    More common to be the clock spring in my experience. However I have used a continuity meter on an apparent faulty one and could not find a break in the ribbon cable. Spun it around but remained constant. Yes was on the airbag not horn or radio controls.
    Ended up finding out it was not the original cluster in the car. I reset it but kept comming back seconds later. Got the right cluster that fixed it.

    Pull yours out and test it. Don't always assume 'the one from the wreckers' is in new condition. Played this game a few times.
