    It can be in several places. The crimps to the small plugs under the front seats, the "clockspring" in the steering hub (easily damaged by those not careful enough), in the airbag connector plug itself (just ahead of gearstick) or (uncommon) in the connections to the passenger airbag.

    Mine also comes on occasionally whilst driving. The light that now stays on is the injection light;no difference in performance and according to Lexia is due to "intermittent +ve" whatever that means ????

    It means a slightly shaky power supply to the injection computer. Anything from a battery terminal to a faulty alternator or stretched wires in the harness.

    Replace! If the harness was pulled on during a clutch job or similar, tack in a wire that is parallel.

    No, you unclip the small black plastic "board" from the springs underneath.

    Lexia is the better diagnostic tool, if you have a spare laptop it is worth getting.

    What it usually is, people don't quite "get".

    The crimping of the connector terminals onto the pretensioner trigger wires is marginal to poor. People blame the connector itself, in error - and claim they fixed the problem by removal of the connector and direct joining of the wires with soldering.

    In fact, if you open the plug out (a couple of seconds with a small prying tool) you can remove the wire/terminals and soft solder where it's crimped. After reassembly of the plug, there is no trace of the repair, and you can remove the seat without any cutting of wires.

    The connector for the brake switch that is part of the brake pedal is another one to check.

    How is your Big 15 project Kevie? I'm assuming you are the same Kevie and that the discussions of that car were unfortunately lost in our crash of 2006-2010 material.
