VCD or another diagnostic system to investigate it is the only answer mate.

It may just be a blip & recorded a error but once reset via diagnostic it may not come back mate.

Took it to a garage this morning.

Plugged in & left 5 mins later with error reset and light no longer showing. Phew ..

Apparently relatively common in Audi when driver seat is moved backwards and forwards a bit (and I do) - as the wires to the driver’s side air bag in the door pillar get bent back and forth and can short.

Mostly an error reset is all it needs, but sometimes need to take out front seat and mend the broken wire.

Would be an MOT failure if left

Chis.

I've seen that problem on a mk4 golf with the passager seat airbag.

The term short normally means open circuit in the car world as the12v supply doesn't return so it assumes its going to earth or negative.

If the wires were to short across each other there blow a fuse mate.

K - thanks Dell. Apologies- I may have used the incorrect word ie ‘short’. I’m just pleased it seems fixed

Chris.

You use the right term as per diagnostics but its meaning is misleading mate.🙄
