That would depend on condition of ECU you install.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?

I'd suggest reading out the codes and trying to reset them first. I can help you with my program. There is also another tool that has been developed by wilco3006 that is capable of reading out airbag ECU codes.My airbag light came on after the car had stood for a few months while replacing heater matrix and starter motor.

If the airbag hardware is fully intact in your car (sensors, squibs, etc.), then a working ECU with no codes set should work well. If, however, there is some issue in the system (intermittent connection, high squib resistance), the new ECU will set a code and turn on the warning light.Have seen the other airbag CPU working fine in its car. It is being scrapped so CPU and all parts available. Can I not just unplug it from this 164 and put it in mine? Seems a great opportunity.
You can use the program that Dimtey wrote to reset the light, but as for me, it didnt clear it for good though and it came back which means there is something that I need to fix. If you are sure everything is in place and there is nothing wrong with the system, the program should be able to clear it.Hi to everyone, I'm new to the forum. Recently I took off the entire dashboard on my 164 super td 1997 so I could fix the bulkhead of the climatronic. I stupidly turned on the key with the passenger airbag disconnected so I could test the proper working of the bulkhead. Now I put everything back on its place but the airbag light still goes on. I tried to download Wilco's program and driver, installed everything but I cannot connect to the airbag ecu. On the airbag diagnostic connector there are only two wires, one is ground and the other one should be k or L line. My airbag ecu is Siemens from what I see and there aren't front crash sensors. Could anyone provide some help please?
