Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a hsv vt clubsport r8 I took it to supercheap and they ran a diagnostic because my airbag light stays on and they told me it is a the steering wheel airbag

Mechanic's Assistant: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?

I don't think so

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your R8?

I got these codes if they help 2000 AIRBAG AB 8.0/8.1 and 101 drivers side front airbag resistance too high

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your R8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am yet to try anything I am wanting to to everything I can myself to learn

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I believe that's all

I see this all the time.

Drivers side airbag is in the outside of the drivers seat, not the steering wheel.

Drivers airbag is steering wheel.

Drivers SIDE airbag is seat.

Could be the airbag, or a poor connection in the seat harness.

Tech2 is a better scan tool, and data will show how far out of spec it is.

The seat needs to come out if proved inside the seat.

I would replace the back cushion if it needs the airbag.
