I had put the wheel on slightly off center after doing it correctly with the battery off, I tried again with it on.


I was putting the wheel on straight when the two pin connect came away from the air bag and I slipped it back on.

I replaced the wheel and air bag back on and started the engine, it seemed fine, the air bag light went off but the airbag light quickly came back on.

Is it easy to reset?

I have a VAG COM lead (USB KKL VAG-COM For 409.1) and 1.3.6 vol fcr, it detects the bag fine but I can't read the codes, and because I can't read it I can't reset it either.

Has anyone dealt with this or something similar?

Thank you

As long as you have not damaged the rotational contact ring by not centering it before fitting the steering wheel then the code will just need erased, unfortunatly diagnostic equipment is required for this. Are you saying that your code reader makes contact with the srs module but says there is no codes, if so first thing is to try another type of code reader as yours maybe just playing up.

The problem is your VAG-COM lead will only be doing what an OBD2 reader can do on your Volvo. OBD2 is designed around engine diagnostics/monitoring and has no control over any other of the cars equipment such as airbags, aircon etc. Not even just to reset fault lights.

Have you tried disconnecting the battery for a while then reconnecting it(30mins-1hr), the airbag fault light might not be a latched code.

The rotational contact ring (AIRBAG ACTUATOR HORN RING or what evers its called) was damaged, I have replace this and now the light now comes on alittle slower (a longer delay in lighting up). I am just waiting now for the 1hr bit to see if its not latched and can reset itself. Thanks for the help.

I do have my airbags light on as well and i wonder how to turn them off myself. If you guys can tell me how I'll get it done myself I would be a much happier man (IMG:style_emoticons/default/gitara.gif)

my air bag warning light came on when i had problems with the dash cluster...yep...a cluster re-build costing a small fortune to repair.now all is ok ( touch wood ) except the warning light....have been told only volvo dealer can switch it off at a cost of about 50+ !!.....have also seen ( on ebay ) a scanner tool which should do the job at a cost of about 170+ !!....either way more costs on top of an expensive cluster re-build......if you find a way let me know as i will you....good luck with this problem...
IF THERE IS ANYONE IN THE OXFORDSHIRE/NORTHAMPTONSHIRE AREA WITH THE CORRECT SCANNER WHO WOULD OBLIGE FOR A SMALL FEE PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.........signing off a frustrated v70 t5 driver........
