Peugeot 106 (1991 - 2002) - 98 1.1 airbag light flashing

As stated, airbag light is flashing on daughters car, she tells me the light stays on continually sometimes but flashes at other times.

Any thoughts please?

Its a nice little motor in good overall condition and very economical so worth fixing.

More than likely the connections under the seats for the seatbelt tensioners.

Sometimes you can just get away with unplugging and plugging back in a couple of times. MAKE SURE you haven't turned the ignition on for a while to allow for any capacitors to discharge to prevent accidental triggering of the pretentioners.

Failing that, some people hard wire them instead and do away with the plug/socket connectors.

I used to use cheeseblock on those unreliable saxo fittings under the seats

Find a random but possibly amusing or informative sticker slightly bigger than the airbag warning light......

By the time i've dug down to the approximate search area i'll have filled 2 wheely bins and possibly fought off some form of mutant insect monster, the stickers will have been consumed by rabid arthropods ages ago..;)

Bet you find a part used book of Christmas postage stamps though. Usually self adhesive, should be the very thing. The back light from the warning lamp would give it the gravitas of a little stained glass window. Could be quite attractive in a slightly eclesiastical sort of way.
