    Airbag light Citroen Picasso, reset tool

    I've been tinkering with the car today, changed Air filter & Pollen filter, new battery in the fob etc, nothing major just messing about.

    Started up the car and took it for a drive, noticed that the bulb behind the LCD wasnt on and the display was unreadable, popped a couple of new bulbs into the back of the display and now my Airbag Warning Light has come on and wont go off. I've had the car about 8 weeks so I might have bought the car with a dodgy bulb in the display (some sneaky buggers out there) or it might just be coincidence.

    Does anyone know of an inexpensive airbag reset tool that will work on a 2001 (y reg) HDI Picasso ? or should I just take it to a garage and pay to get it done ?

    Paul, I've got one of those OBDII units, if your car supports it I could nip over and run it on you car.

    But it'll scan your ECU and alert you to any problems

    Tried it on the, On & off positions, just suddenly appeared after I changed the bulbs in the onboard screen, might have been an airbag fault all along and only noticed it since i put in new bulbs.

    I reckon he just wants the light turned off, lol.

    It's probably too bright and it means that the Police can see him drinking his Buckfast as he's driving.

    Checked them earlier and the look fine, that connector used to give me problems on my rover45, didnt want to disconnect them on the picasso because I still havent figured out how to get to the battery under the passenger seat lol
