Airbaglamp again!
Code 18 tells me that sensor for sideairbag is not working.
I have electrical chairs and donīt want to pick them out.
Is there anyone who have a picture or can tell me exactly where the sensor is placed?
I know itīs somewhere under the seat, and my thinking is to cut the carpet if it is possible.

What does "again" mean? Is this a second or third time you've had the airbag lamp? What did you do to solve each of those prior airbag light indications?

First indication was the passenger seat sensor. I found a fix on the internet and it worked it seems.But now i have a new error on sideairbag sensor left.
I have not found any fix on this so I will try to change place on left and right sensor just to make sure it is a faulty sensor.
