Saab 2006 9-3 airbag warning
« on: 14 June 2019, 11:33:33 PM »
After cleaning the carpets I got a warning that the airbags were faulty. Found thereís some connection under the seat that may have failed. Checked and sure enough my brushing had touched it whatever it is. Fiddled with the connections and all now seems well.
This car certainly has its foibles.

Had this again on passenger seat after moving it roughly to get seat back to flex forwarded. Fiddled again and all was well till today when after leaving it overnight the light came on again and isnít cured by fiddling on either seat.
Read there has been a recall on this but no idea if it was done also there are sensor clips on the interior seat rail that my be dislodged by hoovering so thatís my next bet, but Iíve no idea what Iím looking for, also read it may be a steering wheel problem.
Anyone else had issues on here?
Found the Clear button at least takes the warning down from the dash.

I would look at the seat position sensor on the seat rail first.  There's one on each front seat.

Thanks one was loose from the rail. I put it back on but light still showed, only to find a tiny fuse like piece of practice with two metal prongs coming from it. I just found this video which  calls it a locking pin. Hope fitting that solves the problem. New ones seem to cost £100!
