Asked by Apr 04, 2015 at 09:14 PM about the 1998 Volkswagen Beetle 2 Dr STD Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

Chris Van Kleeck

You're going to have to get the airbag system scanned for codes to know how to proceed. A specialty VW shop with vagcom can help with that. I have seen the seatbelt buckles wear and throw airbag codes, but many components can cause the light to come on.
