Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

i have a peugot 306 and think it will fail the MOT due to this light flashing allthough there doesnt seem to be anythink wrong with the airbag

The airbag light flashing is NOT a cause to fail the MOT as they are not an obligatary item.
The common cause for the light to be flashing is the wiring under the drivers or passengers seat working loose.
A dealer will be able to diagnosis this for you by connecting a computer to the car,it should cost 1/2 to 1 hours labour.
Once the fault is rectified the lamp will extinguish itself.

    If the airbag light is flashing, you need to get it checked out – if there’s a fault in it, I’d say you would definitely fail the MOT.

    it could be a short circuit or broken, either way it needs looking at or your insurance claims could be void if anything happened.

    Yes it will fail its MOT and you need to get into a garage to get it fixed.

    When that light is on it means that either your Airbag or passenger Airbag is not operational. Could just be a loose wire or a fuse but you need to goto a mechanic to check it out. Your putting your or you passengers lives in harms way.

    take it to the dealership, it could be a recall on the airbags or something isnt right. you should be under warranty since this is a safety issue

    Get it checked out! It happened on my Honda Civic and I went straight to the dealers. They sorted it there and then – apparently, as has been mentioned, it was the sensor – but it is a safety issue and needs to be sorted.

    Take care

    Sometimes sensors can give an erroneous reading without any failure. If you think everything is OK, forget the light and put a small decal or a sticker on it.

    Put your car in first gear, aim it at a wall, get out and place a brick on the accelerator. There must be some distance between the car and the wall, you want the vehicle to at least get to 30mph before it hits the wall. If the airbag goes off you have nothing to worry about, and you wont need an M.O.T as your car will be a write off. Problem solved.

    For health and safety purposes, I would advise reporting your car stolen to the police, using a wall in a particularly remote place, and having an escape vehicle or running very fast from the scene.. As running from a crashed car is not suspicious at all.

    Yes you can turn it off with the car key and the key holder should be in your glove department, if not it is down near the ignition start
