Airbag Fault - Code 8059

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

A friend of mine has the error 8059 from his car, Instrument Cluster says Airbag fault, the description on the Durametric is Driver's-side Sensor. I couldn't figure out which sensor this is. Is it the seat sensor?

Just tried it on a PIWIS, it came out as 8059 Driver's Airbag Sensor also.

Any ideas?

Hmmm... airbag codes are usually 69xxx - HVAC codes are 80xx.

But 8059 does not come up on my list. Any chance you can get the car to a PIWIS tester?

There are two sensors in the steering column.

What are the two sensors in the steering column?

I have an 8059 fault code on my 2006 997S, and the airbag light is on. What does this mean?

I have removed your duplicate post on the same subject. Please re-read the board Guidelines/Rules if you are unclear.

Have you (or a shop) had the steering wheel off recently?
