      Tonight when my son got out of the pass side on my 06 Jetta the air bag light in the speedo came on

      I grabbed VAG-Com and did a scan, results below. However I couldn't find the code in the service manual or the Wiki. I cleared the code and will see if it happens again tomorrow morning when I play school bus.

      Does anyone know what this means and should I consider taking it back to the dealer?

      Address 15: Airbags
      Part No SW: 1K0 909 605 P HW: 1K0 909 605 P
      Component: 39 AIRBAG VW8R 032 7900
      Coding: 0013113
      Shop #: WSC 00066

      Part No: 1K0 959 339 E
      Component: BF-Gewichtsens. 006 0005

      It means there's a problem with the passenger side airbag igniter circuit.

      If it happens again, I would indeed let the dealer deal with it. Do not clear the code. It's the only thing that indicates a problem to him.

      Depending on your dealer, I would not tell him that you've scanned it an that you know what's wrong with it. Just tell him "My airbag light is on". (Some -- but certainly not all -- dealers think they're high priests and that it's irreverent for customers to scan their own cars).

      There's a TSB for this issue available, so as Uwe said you are better off with letting your dealer taking care of that.

      Wish I would have read this before clearing it

      I'm going to 'try' some of the post fix checks listed in the TSB to see if it happens again.

      Thanks again for all the help!

      Don't worry - it will come back sooner or later.

      What did the dealer say? I have the same problem with my 2001 Jetta 2.0.

      It doesn't go in for service until Tuesday (27-Jan). But I have printed out the TSB and will lay it on the passengers seat when I drop it off, just in case
