Can't seem to find it on Renntech, but for an '06 Cayenne 6cyl is the side airbag fault still a wire issue? I have an airbag fault light driver's side.

I can't seem to find the blue wire that has been mentioned on Rennlist posts. Can anyone help me with where to find it?

TSB 9/04 6963 Airbag Warning Light On- Fault Code 1217 and 1218 -- dated Jun 7, 2005

Fault code 1218 -- Ignition circuit, passenger's side airbag

Possible cause of fault

- Upper limit exceeded (based on resistance of passenger side airbag and wiring between airbag trigger unit and passenger side airbag)

- Lower limit not reached (based on resistance of passenger side airbag and wiring between airbag trigger unit and passenger side airbag)

- Short circuit to positive

- Short circuit to ground

- Passenger side airbag faulty

- Airbag trigger unit faulty

Unless you can see a pinched wire or obvious fault you will need some special tools to test the airbag and trigger units. Not a job for someone without proper tools and training IMHO.
