Hi all, I have an airbag light and airbag error message. I scanned the car and got a code of 01228 - airbag cuttoff switch faulty, passenger side.
Any idea what this might be????
I did move the passenger seat so thought that might be the issue. checked the connectors under need and all still plugged in.

any help at all much appreciated!

Hi Apologies for not introducing myself. Yes just purchased the car about 2 weeks now and really want to get this sorted. I gave the car a good looking over. Im certain the car was never crashed.

two problems I have with the car:

1) Airbag error 01228 - I cleared this with my OBD-eleven but it came back. Checked connectors under seat all connected. is there any point in changing the airbag cut off switch? Could the solution be something else?
2) Terrible radio signal in FM and DAB, any reason why this is?

OBD-eleven is a cheap scanner.

You need to get your motor scanned (preferably with VAG-COM\VCDS) for any error codes logged in the ecu and post them, that will save a lot of guessing and check systems out.

I have the same issue with my 2012 VW CC - had an error cleared once and it came back after a few weeks. Presume you've had yours sorted since there aren't any more messages here - wondering what was the actual reason and how did it get fixed? Thanks in advance.
