    Airbag light in blob eye

    I seen a thread about this once or twice before? Seems to be a common thing with them, is it something to do with wires under the seat or something?

    In forester it definitely is. It takes 30 seconds to check.

    I haven't even went near it yet now, but is it as simple as making sure they are all connected or...? Am I missing something 😂

    Yes. Usually moving the seat all the way back slightly disconnects the socket. Just plug it in tight.

    Yeah had this issue for months. It's usually the drivers side connection but in my case it was the passenger side. I got a auto electrician to cut the whole connection and just solder up the wires with heat shrink and no issues now.

    I might do that actually, cut them up short and stuff. Secure them so they won't come loose again, cheers lads!

    What is passenger side for you is driver side for me. So maybe it’s better call it left side

    While getting the recall is good, the problem lies with the cables under seats.

    Id say it's just loose connection Eoin

    Getting recall done be Differnt issue but important if not done already letters were issued to owners here last year so one could have been sent for that car already quick call with chass/reg they will be able to tell ya if was done or not

    Issue isn't that I won't work when u need it Tommy

    Problem is it goes off when you least expect it causing a crash like the old game Buckaroo
