Airbag Light Won’t go Away

I fitted an aftermarket steering wheel and put resistors in to get rid of the airbag light
all of a sudden the light has come back on after about a month. I checked the resistors and they were still fine so I fitted the airbag back in to see if it would clear it but it’s still there
Any idea?

Have you checked it's not one of the seat connectors that have come loose? Or if running Recaros people put in resistors (if they retrofitted the seats, they had 2 airbags instead of 3), have a look at those connectors first.

Just thought about that mate as you sent the message. Mine came with Recaros but I know the connectors can play up, it might be worth a trip to Renault cheers

Depending on where you are, go see a Renault specialist and they can turn it off with CLiP software.

But just have a wiggle under the car, when they slide forward and back or something goes under it dislodges the wires (as many people don't use correct connector ends that stay in).
