I also have a 00588 error code for my driver side airbag (Air-bag Ignition Circuit - Driver Side-N95 or Airbag Igniter: Driver Side(N95)) in a 2000 Jetta TDI. Anyone know of anything I should ask the mechanic to look for? I'm hoping I can find a mechanic who knows more than I do (shouldn't be too difficult - I don't know anything
. The airbag was removed when a new alarm was installed, and then a second mechanic found the connector for the airbag was not connected properly (can't imagine how this could happen). Haven't taken the airbag off, but it looks easy according to the Bentley manual.
