“Thank you worked like a charm!!!! I have a foxwell, getting error codes 31 ignition circuit - side airbag , driver
and 21 ignition circuit, driver
no idea what to do. Horn works depending on its mood. “
Any suggestions would help. I’ve taken off the door panels and disconnected and reconnected the airbags.
So only managed to see a black square of tape expertly placed over the Airbag light (ON all the time), only because of driving it in the sun with the top down. Been concentrating on other parts of the car.
Any-who, that has lead to seeing that the Seatbelt light doesn't appear at all, and closely related, the horn didn't have a fuse in it at all.
So this has brought up a question, the Codes reported, the electrical drawings (Bentley), ....while they say "passenger" or "driver" side, does this in fact relate to the left and right side of the car when it is the probably more common "left-hand drive"?
Code 30 Ignition Circuit, side airbag passenger................is that actually the right side?
This will not reset with the Durametric. I looked at the airbag connector in the left door, but now I am thinking it may actually relate to the other side of the car, i.e. LHD passenger
Interestingly, the Airbag module wiring, Passenger Side Belt Lock, that wire is cut at the plug and a grafted in wire (plug connected) heads off under the dash somewhere (yet to be traced).
So that Br/Bl wire say passenger, but maybe it relates to the right hand side of the car, in this case the drivers seat.
BTW, the left seat, (passenger), does not have a wire at the buckle, but I think maybe the RHD ROW, or Australian RHD cars didn't have that anyway. Or has been replaced with the wrong buckle.
So maybe the Airbag light was covered to avoid looking for a fault, might be a plug.
Could it be related to the seat-belt buckle, again patched to avoid fixing it properly? The light doesn't even go with the self-test, so could be a bulb.
I have read that the seat belt buckle may not be included in the Airbag ignition circuit for this region.
Horn didn't have a fuse in it. Relay operates with the horn pad, but no horns, so maybe bad horns.
The fuse may also have been removed if it had that bad horn pad issue and going off on its own.
I had to disconnect the passenger side door airbag as part of door panel removal, to replace the door lock mechanism. To check that I replaced the part correctly, I reconnected the battery and turned the ignition key, and got an "Airbag Failure" warning. The fault didn't clear even after disconnecting the battery, reconnecting the airbag and closing up the door panel, and reconnecting the battery. I confirmed the airbag was reconnected. I suspect that it may be a "latched' fault that can only be cleared via the Durametric tool - thoughts?
Hey. I'm new to this forum and owner of a Cayenne turbo 2004., I have had the airbag yellow warning light on since I replace the battery. I didn't receive any error code. And I follow the previous post on this forum tried to use the PIWIS to erase the faulty memory, it didn't work though. And I also tried to disconnect the battery, but the light still on. I bought a Maxicheck(it's more direct and easy for me to use than PIWIS) to detected where is the problem which shows control module faulty 3 and belt tensioner, passager's side, rear 4BC. also the actual value shows almost everything is "too big". So my question right now is does it means my control unit need to be replaced? And if I replace it use the used parts do I still need to do the "locking steps"(I saw people talking about the airbag lock in other post). English is my second language hope I can get everything explain well. Thanks for your help.
first of all, i would like to excuse my bad english, im from germany. My name is Dominic and i drive a Cayman S. I really love this car, but i hate the seats.
I bought a pairs of "König" seats and im about to install them this weekend. The only problem is, no Dealer does the coding to dissable to dissable the thorax Airbags. So i need to add some resistors on the cables.
Can somebody tell me where i have to wire the resistors? I found this topic with the same question, but no answer:
Thank you very much in advance!!
