incident polo 9n3 airbags explode, control unit replacement?

Post by Luigid »

hi guys, i'm following a polo 9n3 2005 1.4 tdi that has had an accident.
Both airbags and belt pretensioners have exploded.
I tried with the vcds to remove the errors of the airbag control unit but without success. I attach the video:

obviously the airbags and belts have been replaced, the passenger airbag is read, driver airbag and belts nothing.
probably the control unit needs to be replaced, right?
just the same code and it is plug and play or do you have to do something else with the vcds?
first time I have a crashed vehicle. thank you for the reply!
the two error "crash data" I try to erase them, but unplugging and reattaching the battery they reappear.

Hi, seeing as no one has replied, I believe that you are correct in that "crash data" can not be deleted from the airbag controller, and so you will need to buy a new or "un used" one, and if it is the same part number as the old one it should be "plug and play".
