Espace Airbag Light - No Codes!!!

Following on from this thread (which was very useful), I'm stating this new thread as I think my airbag problem may be slightly different.

Basically, I took it to have it diagnosed and the airbag light reset.

On the diagnosis, it showed up as a problem with the squib and pretensioner connector on BOTH sides.

So, at this stage I'm thinking 'Ok, I might have to solder these wires together - not sure what I'll do about the pretensioner wires but at least I can sort ouyt the squibs'.

Anyhow, he reset the airbag light only for it to come back on straight away BUT WITHOUT any fault codes.

We tried it a few more times, and the airbag light kept coming on but no codes were stored. The battery voltage was low, and he said this could play havoc with the airbag system, but the fault is still there.

The one thing that he wasn't sure about was that on the fijnal screen, everything checked as 'OK' or 'YES', but one of those things was "Squib Locked: YES" (squib? squab?). He thinks that means the passenger 'an' airbag might be turned off, but as far as I'm aware, ther passenger side bag can't be turned of on the Espace.

So I'm a bit stumped.....

Any ideas please?
