I was able to reset the airbag light using Wilco's software (thanks again Wilco). The error code its showing is fault at steering wheel squib (short to VBatt), how can I repair this?

thanks
So did you get air bag light to reset if so air bag squib fault code is gone?

If light did not reset then code still exists. If so with ignition switch key OFF, remove air bag from steering wheel using Torx 27 tip or T27 screwdriver. There are two T27 screws hidden in holes in backside of wheel.

Once air bag free of wheel, disconnect orange tipped cable from air bag squib inspect/clean and then reconnect. Reinstall air bag and turn on key if light flashes and stays on rerun software test to see if code will clear and light stays out.

Report your findings/results.

My airbag light came on after the car had stood for a few months while replacing heater matrix and starter motor. If I replace the airbag CPU will this be enough to reset things?

That would depend on condition of ECU you install.

It would be best to find somebody with Marelli tester and air bag cartridge to reset your ECU fault code if system sound or follow Dimtey's process.
