I have a 2006 VW Jetta and the airbag light is on...

Asked by Oct 28, 2013 at 10:04 AM about the 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A coworker with a VW code reader read the error and it is something with the passenger sensor switch. My question is do the airbags still work when the light is on? Just want to know if the fix is something that needs to be done ASAP since typically I do not have passengers in my car.

The book says that they are inoperative when the light is on, but I have heard of the system operating even with the light on, so I guess it depends on the conditions that cause the deployment.

The light is on because, as you stated, there's a faulty component in the system. The airbags will not deploy, even in a collision, until it's repaired and the light no longer stays on. HTH. -Jim
