Hi check previous post - httpwww.fiatforum.comducato3009...ing-light.html Cheers
It sounds as if they have dislodged a wire somewhere. I would take it to an independant work shop. there are a couple of places I use here but you dont say what area you are in. I would not let the fiat dealers anywhere near my ducato Mike

Your point about only using the dealer for airbag issues is not bourne out by the OPs issues with his light coming on. The dealer has charged him a lot of money and not fixed the problem. As regards to the recall point I went to the dealer with the typical ducato leaking scuttle problem thinking they would fit the engine cover kit that has been introduced to fix this issue to be told they did not know

Hi Guys This confirms my thoughts that it should work and also my fears that it could be conected to the airbag. Regards Stewart
Just a quick update had the van into the dealers today and they have confirmed that on the ducato the passenger seat is not conected to the warning system. The wiring under the seat is for the airbag system. Regards Stewart
Wiring is for the seatbelt pre-tensioner disconnected fauly wiring or pre-tensioner fired should bring up an airbag warning light not seatbelt light.
I was replying for the benefit of other people that would find the thread seaching for ducato airbag warning etc.
Have they scanned it It is possible but rare for an SRS ECU to fail. The most common fault on the early models was high resistance on the LH airbag. Disconnect battery remove glovebox unplug air bag (2 connectors) clean and tighten (wire end) terminals refit test.

Im not sure if fiat scanned the ECU If you have a double seat in the front the center seatbelt recoil connector is pretty vulnerable. You can put a 2.2 ohm resistor in instead of the recoils and airbag to rule them out. Definitely worth getting a kkl cable and fiatecu scan to check the codes yourself.
It isnt usual to cause a fault simply by changing the fuse key on or off. We often have vehicles in that have had a flat battery the airbag light comes on when trying to start with a flat battery NOT on jump starting. Usually we simply connect scanner delete code and problem solved. Some vehicles you can delete the code by disconnecting the battery for 20 minutes. What fuse were you changing You might
Dont keep swapping ECU s like there cups of tea Its sound advice when we keep saying Get a Cheap KKLvag com cable with adaptor Get a Free Edition of FesMes and Find out what the airbag ECU actually thinks is wrong Could be the beloved low battery it could pick up a dead airbag detonation pack - who knows But fes will tell you Ziggy

Hi Moodrator Seem to have a problem with the lights not working on my 2003 ducato motorhome and I noticed a little puff of smoke from the top of steering column then no lights recently so assume problem may be wiring loom chafing on steering column.

warning light will stay on if an impact of a certain severity causes the activation of the system. The control unit must be replaced because its memory cannot be deleted The Air Bag warning light is the smart type with a control circuit inside the panel that ensures the warning light is properly connected to the control unit. I was talking to an owner the other day with the same problem & the fiat
Hi did you ever get your airbag light sorted If so what was the problem I have a light on too so am interested. Cheers.
Hi first time to post. Reading previous posts a few people have had the same problem with the air bag warning light that I am having ie. the warning light staying on for no apparent reasonAbout 18 months ago the airbag warning light came on in my motorhome just as the DOE was due. I brought it to the garage and after 2 days they had cleared the light and replaced the contact spiral and charged me an
From what I can gather from your post the airbag light has come on again after nearly a year. You have checked the clockspring (spiral...) and are not taking it back to the garage.......why It obviously seems to be a different fault and without a code reader you stand little chance of finding the fault.
The air bag circuit is finding a fault and showing you by illuminating the light. You need to access the airbag ecu to find out what the fault is and to clearfix the problem. They are very sensitive to voltageamperage changes so the airbag loom (usually separate) cant be repaired and so should be replaced if damaged. I would recommend the airbag man to look at it. It must of been some pothole

There are two brass contacts that slide on steering wheel (earth contact) and the other one which makes contact with a brass ring. Neither were making contact which is a mystery. All I can think is that

The basic system is similar to the late vans. Test the horn and relay circuits again only tackle the clockspring wiring as a last resort or if you are already familiar with the systems. If you are not confident removing the airbag squib get some help. There are guidelines for doing this. Disconnect battery removed squib place face up on the floor etc. DO NOT test connections with a test light or voltmeter.
Im pretty sure theres a guy on the yahoo group who sells the modified leads that do airbags and abs for 20 quid incl postage. fiatecuscan can do abs anyway as I used it on a ducato I had fine but maybe multiscan is different. I have an airbag light cos I took out a seat.. I assume it will go away when I plug it back in Marty
