1999 Espace airbag warning light shows after water damage

Hi all,

I had a non-return valve burst in the rear window washer hose of my 99 Espace which caused water to get into the tailgate electrics. This caused all the tailgate electrics to go wrong, but I've had it all sorted now.

The problem I have now is, every time I start the car the airbag warning light comes on then goes off after a few seconds.

This is, I assume, to do with the previous water problems but what can I do to stop it happening?

Someone told me the airbag has to be coded to the car and that when the electrics were shorting out - this could have be lost. I don't know if this is true - anyone help?

I assume at the moment the airbag would not deploy in the event of an accident so I obvioulsy want to get it sorted.

Thanks very much for any help offered.
