So that's why some of my warning lights weren't coming on...

Check engine light, seatbelt light, and airbag light all covered with duct tape. Gotta love surprises left from previous owners...

I recently cleared all the codes, and the only engine related one that has reappeared is for a cylinder 8 misfire which I have noticed occasionally (new coil ordered).

The airbag light is for passenger door airbag circuit - next step is to take off the door panel and check the connections. Fingers crossed it was just just left disconnected after an inevitable window regulator repair.

What a shite thing to do... tantamount to fraud... at least it was only minor items.

When the Board was young and dinosaurs roamed the earth (LOL) a member found that the a LED had actually been removed from the board. A quick solder job restored a LED to the board and then came the fun eliminating the cause.

On the airbag light, I expect the likelihood of just needing a reset vs. anything actually being wrong is so high, that I'd skip the inspection and just work on resetting the light.

I can clear the airbag code, unfortunately it comes right back. A bit of googling tells me the connector to the door airbag is easily damaged, a few others have successfully repaired it.

Do tell! I have an E46 airbag connector that needs repair.

This guy just cleaned up and re-seated the connector, and problem fixed.
