Default AirBag warning light stays on


Thanks for your reply! I had decided that the best course of action was to purchase VAG-COM (no one near me who has one). However there is a warning on the VAG-COM site regarding using VAG-COM with a particular airbag controller (6Q0-909-605-A) on 2000/2001 Golf/Jetta's. The warning indicates that scanning this particular controller will induce a permanent fault into the controller, requiring that the controller be replaced! Sure enough, this is the controller that I have in my 2000 Golf. I am at a loss of what to do next.

In searching the Internet it seems that airbag problems are common on 2000 Golf/Jetta's, with repair prices being quoted at $400 - $1,100 dollars.

Does anyone have any suggestions short of taking my Golf to the dealer? We have 3 newer VW's and have used the local dealer for our warrenty work. I am sorry to say that I can say nothing good about this dealer. I hesitate to do any paid service business with them.

Any help/advise is greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
