Damn you airbag module
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:00:37 AM »
Morning !

Have done nothing particularly special to get this fault, but i now have -  "01589 - Igniter For Head Airbag, Passenger Side (N252) Upper limit Exceeded - MIL ON" DTC in the airbag module.

I cannot clear it, it returns, i have had the battery OFF left for 20 mins, removed the seat plugs and checked the connections there, they are sound and NOT damaged/corroded etc. 

Can anyone offer some advice?

Thanks

Is not related to the seat airbags..... its the "Igniter For Head Airbag, Passenger Side " so i would start to look there.

Any guess on where that lives ? as in in the rear or front of the headliner?

The connect for the igniter is at the rear of the car

Great stuff, assume in the rear quarter?

No, behind headlining. Right in the middle of the rear I’ll try and google a photo, sort of inline with the aerial but online the outer edge

Disconnect and reconnect the igniter and DTC is gone.

Thank You
