Mk1 Airbag light now only works intermittently.
It should come on for a few seconds when key turned to position 2.

Over the last couple of days it has only worked at the first start of the day and very rarely after that.

There is no flashing.

Any ideas gratefully received as MOT due later this month.

it is covered by the MOT but usualy overlooked, but it should light up in sequence, either way id rather it works correctly, to show teh system is working,

Are you sure it is the airbag and not the pre tensioners I think you'll find that they use the same warning light. If so a common fault is the connector under the seat. Might need taking apart,cleaning and refitting

It looks as though no one else has had this problem?

The pre-tensioners on mine are not electrically fired - mass/spring system.

I will probably disconnect battery, wait, remove and check all plugs and wiring.

Thanks for any further info.

I still think, this is a dodgy bulb! My airbag light is on all the time! If you pull the fuse, disconnect any yellow cables, or the airbag has deployed then the light is set to stay on. Otherwise the light will flash a code.

Thanks for all of that.

I'll give bulb, connections etc a check and let you know if I find anything.

Glad it's not part of MOT but would like to ensure it IS working.
