Re: some kinda of elcetrical problem ?

I've heard that the airbag light turning on and off is commonly the clockspring.

Re: some kinda of elcetrical problem ?

The airbag system is continuously monitoring the airbag firing squibs circuits for continuity and will switch on the airbag light when there is discontinuity (one of the reasons). A problem in the clockspring can indeed cause this and as far as i know you have to buy a new unit.
Regarding the first issue, you are not by any change pressing the memory switch(es) with your arm or so? There could be a wiring problem as well, with a shaved through wire.

Re: some kinda of elcetrical problem ?

damn ! this would cost me 500 -600 euro in here where i live ! i thought it can be a way to fix it because of expensive parts of us cars in europe ! anyway...,,
Will the obd scan will tell me where the problem is ?

No im not pressing the memory switches it comes on by it self ! where are the wires located ?

Re: some kinda of elcetrical problem ?

I would not expect the DRBIII scan to tell exactly where the problem is, it can most probably tell you for example that the squib circuit is open. But there could be some other problem, so better to scan it first.
Regarding the memory seat, the wires runs from the drivers door memory switches to the Driver Door Module and from there to the Seat Module. Maybe the problem could be in the memory set switch module itself.
