    Angry Christine help required airbag problem. Driving it into a lake considered

    Right Christine is gonna get it. After vauxhall telling my partner theres no fault after having it for a week. I have managed to get this from the ECU...

    Error code B0065
    Pyrotechnic pretensioner drivers side - high resistance
    Cause
    Wiring
    Pyrotechnic pretensioner
    SRS control module.

    Symptoms...
    When hot about 19 degrees (air temp not engine temp ) air bag light comes on and stops on. If lower than 19 degrees airbag light goes off as normal.

    Right anyone got any input apart from take it to Vauxhall. What is this bloody pretensioner what does it do where is it located how difficult is it to repair it? No the airbag has never been deployed.

    I'm really getting hacked off with this bloody car, its been nothing but trouble from day one. Now I know its drivers side I'm not too happy about it at all. Its my missus car Corsa C 51 reg 1.2 Z12XE

    Please someone help ????

    Right mate, Im not gunna pretend I know much bout the subject matter but a quick google suggests that its the seatbelt pretensioners its referring to, seems a plug may have become disconnected when the seat were moved perhaps? Or even that a wire has come loose. I shall let you know more when I find out for definite

    Sorry mate, I though you were asking what pretensioners are
    Sounds like my local Vaux mate, I gotta drive 25 miles to get decent service from a Vaux dealer
    But on the plus side it just sounds like a cable has come loose or a plug disconnected, not too pricey you said yerself:

    Also SRS encompasses the belt pretensioners too, SRS just means Supplementary Restraint System. Not necessarily airbags on their own but anything that restrains the passengers. Dont think its anything to do with the airbags I cant say as Id wanna mess with them either, leave that to the pros

    Apparently its common, this is taken from a Mondeo site:

    a common fault on late Mk1 and all Mk2 mondeo's using the pyrotechnic pretensioners - especially if you have recently moved the position of one of the front seats. Turn the igntion off and allow the car to sit for 15 minutes. Underneath the front seat base, (access is best from the rear passenger footwells, with front seats furthest forward), you will find two cables wrapped in yellow sleeving. The yellow connector may have parted company with its other half - Even if it hasn't disconnect and reconnect it to ensure that it is secure. Move on to the passenger side and check the wiring there - whilst doing this ensure the cabling is slack and not badly routed resulting in it being pulled tight.
    Obviously the whole "Yellow connectors" bit isnt relevant but you get the jist.

    It's common on the VectraBs for the connector under the seat to get disturbed when moving the seat back and forth.
