    GSI owners!!!!!!!!1

    Has anyone else suffereed from this ,what appears as a common problem? I am now on my 3rd Astra (2.0 SRI and 2x GSI) and each one of them has had the same problem where the Airbag light comes on for no reason. I then have to take to dealer for reset and they blame my mobile phone? Is there any other way of reset and has anyone else had this problem? Look forward to seeing you next Sunday[/color].

    that light blue text is crap you have to highlight the text to read it , the mobil wont turn the light on the signal has to conform with eu regulations and the srs system is well shielded to prevent such a serious thing happening, if it keep comeing on then there is a fault so get them to check the system properly next time i think what they are doing is just reseting it without checking for faults

    I had to have a modification to the wiring loom done on mine, something to do with low resistance to a sensor?

    £100 down the loo

    Well this is under warranty so am calling in dealers tomorrow and they better sort. I think it is a bit of a joke when this has happened on three different cars that I have had. I'm sure the Dealer will be happy to see me after this is a replacement car after all the probs of the first GSI I had off them. They told me with last car that it was something to do with the resistance on the side Airbags and if it continued they would have to modify the harness. The technician who reset it will Tech 2 said this also. ops:

    Only time my airbag light came on was when I had my ICE fitted - the installer had taken various panels off to get wiring in etc. Since a dealer reset, it's been fine.

    But my goddamn misting headlights are another matter ...
