Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you today.

What code, (number) does it have in it?

I don't know jerry sorry. ive forgot

There are many areas in the air bag system that will make the light come on. You will want to have the codes read to see what area the problem is in. Then we will have more of an idea as to where the problem actually is Vicki.

it showed up the ecu-something to do with the excelorater sensor?

That won't normaly make the air bag light stay on, (Lateral Accelerometer Sensor).

Not sure what it is that you plan to accomplish by asking the question. Did you want a guess at what the problem may be?

Without any specific code(s) it would really be a shot in the dark.

well, I just wondered if you could help me that's all. I need to find the problem so the light will go off, then it will pass its mot. I can get the code what showed but not at the moment as I don't know it.

Ok, Vicki, anytime that you can get it that will help, (sorry we don't want to just guess) and we will get you fixed up in time for the MOT, (hopefully) Laughing
