I have bought a clio 2003 1.6 dynamique last week and it has some faults.
One of which is the usual airbag serv light illuminated on the dash which i was told had just appeared after the battery had gone flat... i thought it would be the simple wiggle of the connectors under the seat but it looks as though someone has beaten me to it and hard wired them, one wire appeared broken so i re soldered it and thought that would do the job but no.. light is still on, so i have had it plugged into various diagnostic machines and for some reason it will not connect to the airbag ecu
but it will connect to engine management etc, has any one heard of this problem before.
I then removed the airbag ecu
and found the words "reset" written on the back so either it hasn't been done properly and someone has killed it or there's some broken wires in the loom due to the crash possibly?
I have sent the ecu
off to be reset/replaced but in the mean time i would like to check the wiring under the seat is correct does anyone have a wiring diagram? It appears to have been cut further down the loom under the seat as well for some reason which just confuses things
Also is there anything else i should check before the ecu
comes back, as far as i can see the front seat belt pretensioners have bot retracted, but i wouldn't be surprised if possible they have just been unwound again to look as if they haven't fired, is there any way of checking? Also the rear seat belts seem to work fine but could these have triggered also?
Sorry for the long post and if you read this far thanks
