Hi Ricard!
JA: What is the make/model/year of your car?
Customer: i have o huge problem. Just imported a Jaguar XK8 2005 from Miami to Denmark. When it arrived I saw that the airbag light was on. Now I have tried everything to find out what wrong. The only message I am getting is - ECU's not responding to AMG. and IP.
JA: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?
Customer: This seatbelt warning light is not working as well. Is there a connection

Does the air bag light blink when you turn the ignition ON?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No it doesn't.
As I wrote - it seemed to be a problem to get in contact with the airbag module. I have a Autel MD 802 for testing and it say that no contact with the airbag system. When my garage was testing it it say exactly the same. When I turn on the key there are no light in the seatbelt on the instrument or any noise when I am driving without seatbelt.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
What going on. I haven't heard from you after my last comments.
Additional to this I wonder if the problem is: Is my Airbag restraint module not working any more as it is not responding.
Can I reset it
Expert:  Richard replied 9 months ago.

If the airbag module is not communicating then we will need to check power and ground to it. It is under the console which would need to be removed. We can fuse check fuse #10 (10 amp) in the driver side dash fuse box. If fuse is good then we will need to access the air bag module.
