Hi guys + gals,

 

I've just bought a 1998 Ford Focus Zetec, and the airbag light is constantly on (colour yellow).

 

I've taken it to two garages to find out what's wrong, and they have both said that the airbag module is faulty and it's need replacing. For the part, labour (fitting and programming it) and VAT they have said it will cost be roughly £200!

 

I was hoping I would be able to have it repaired instead of buying a new one, but am unsure if this is possible.

 

Has anyone had any experience with this before?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Simon.

Not sure about the airbag module , but check the seat connections under the seat , if the seat has been moved alot they tend to have a bad connection.

I just checked the seat connections under the seat and they look fine.
