    Question 2012 - Passat - Airbag Error - 01228

    Hi there,

    I just bought a used car about 3 weeks ago and last week I got an airbag warning error 01228 http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/01228 I have been able to fix it by clearing the code & turning off the airbag, disconnecting & reconnecting the yellow connector on the passenger side & turning back on the airbag, but it keeps coming back on. I asked a VW dealer about it and the diagnostics was 140 alone & they said they'd advise me not to be driving the car as I could be putting my or my passengers life at risk. Do you guys have any idea on what the issue most likely is? How much it would cost to fix the issue?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Have you checked to see if the switch is plugged in?

Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hi there,

    In terms of? I the yellow plug is plugged back in & I used the airbag key to switch the airbag on again. Also, I cleared the error code so its not displaying the airbag error at the moment. I am just worried the airbag wont deploy if someone is in the seat? Also, the error will come back on again.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Clearing error codes only clears the ecu memory, you still have to fix the problem.

    Hi Daspendy, I've had the same problem with my passat I've had it in to my local VW dealer and it turns out that the switch to immobilise the front passenger airbag is faulty I'm having a new switch fitted tomorrow.
