VW polo 6R steering wheel upgade results in airbag warning light?

Post by Georgekitch22 »

Hi I have had my VW polo 6R polo for over a year with no issues but have recently bought and fitted an OEM steering wheel (upgraded to a leather one) I did the install last night and everything went fine and turned out well.
I then manoeuvred the car around the drive and don't remember seeing any warning lights however this morning driving to work I have noticed that the airbag warning light has come on? looking for any advice as to why this has appeared. The airbag is the same airbag that was with the car from factory I literally just took it off disconnected it ect swapped the wheel over and then put the airbag back on reversing the steps I had just taken to do the install.

Im hoping that it will just be a loose connection and that I haven't reconnected the plug properly.

you might have turned the ignition key on when the airbag were removed. so BCM would have triggered an error reading the part, you can clear the fault code via diagnostics tool.
