Re: Renault Clio II - Electronics - Airbag and Service light illuminated

Hello all,

I have a 2001 Clio mk2 1.5 dci.

So my Clio's failed its MOT because of the 3 lights not going out (the coils , the airbag and the serv on the dashboard) and I have until Wednesday to fix it (without a code reader to boot as I can't find a code reader that works with my Clio - links to code readers, that read Clip/Renault own codes from 2001 would be really appreciated).

So I think it's the electrics under the seats. I'm the 7th owner and I reckon one of the previous owners did some tinkering under the seats (probably because of a crash, who knows).

So, at the bottom of this post are the photos of the electrics, showing cut and soldered wires . The first 3 pics are below the drivers seat, the 4th & 5th are the passenger seat electrics.

Is this the correct set-up currently (I'm imagining no). If no, does anyone know the correct circuitry and would they explain what I need to do?

I have a soldering iron, choc boxes and patience.

Thank you for any help given.

3. Showing the Grey and Black soldered wires.
