Hi Pete the code for the airbag I believe is J234 and brake code J540
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Airbag igniter high resistance
Audi Mechanic: peterpete190, Technician replied 7 months ago

The J234 is the air bag computer and the J540 is the park brake control module.Are the codes showing up as a fault with these two components?These are numbers for the components themselves.

Let me know, thanks, Pete.
