    Hiya

    I have a 2004 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 Club Twinsport 5dr. The car was involved in an accident leading to the airbags on the passengerside being deployed. I have replaced the airbag in the seat.I will be replacing the curtain airbag but in the meantime have a problem with the hazards keep coming on when i start the car

    Q1) The hazard lights keep going off when i restart the car, will this go when i replace the last airbag which is the curtain airbag?

    Q2) Do i need to reprogramme my Airbag ECU?

    a) if so where do i locate it?

    b) and how much does it cost to reprogramme?

    Q3) can you please provide me your telephone number so i can speak to you in detail.

    Regards

    ROB

    to the best of my knowledge you need to get the system reset at VX to put out the airbag light and that may be causing the hazards to run(to prompt you to get it done..airbag light is also MOT failure I believe

    Air bag and hazards aren't linked i think maybe the damage is a bit more than you thought it does sound like a wiring fault - was there any major panel damage if yes where?

    if the car has emergency/accident mode its linked.

    I had an unknown fault with my 2007 zafira, the car kept going into emergency/accident mode - where the car thought there had been a collision, the hazards came on, the doors unloked, the interior lights came on, the fuel was cut & subsiquently the engine shut off. The airbag light also flashed when this happened.

    earlier vauxhalls may have the same sort of 'safety' feature

    Hi i trawled the handbooks and have yet to find the same system fitted to earlier cars but as you say it might well be linked in a 2004 - i suppose there isn't any other reason but in all the others it does say its a tech 2 reset
    cheers
