United-Kingdom Airbag Light and B800 reset tool showing code 1 and 15

Hi,

I need some help please, I have recently brought a second hand R50 mini Cooper and the air bag light is on.

following this forum I purchased a B800.

I have read the instructions, plugged it in, checked the FA code Table which was 10, then checked the codes within the table, this is what i found:

Table 10
01 Firing Circuit, drivers Airbag, stage 1
03 Firing Circuit, belt tensioner, passenger side
05 Firing Circuit, Side Airbag, front left
15 Firing Circuit, drivers Airbag, stage 2

using the CA option did reset 03 and 05 codes.

But I still have

01 Firing Circuit, drivers Airbag, stage 1
15 Firing Circuit, drivers Airbag, stage 2

However could this be passenger, reason I ask is that when I got the car I was told that the light came on only after it was broken into and the airbag passenger side cover was forced off thinking it was a glove box, as the B800 is made in china could it be that the manual is for a LH drive car?

Could I fool it by fitting 4 ohms resistors to work out which one it is, would need to know which pins to connect.

Any help would be grateful.

Regards new mini owner Richard

Quick update, with thanks to mab01uk,

He thinks that the B800 would work the same whether LH or RH drive car as it is only looking for the components...does not really matter where they are located?

So i have today taken off the drivers air bag, reconnected the battery and then turned the car on, re checked logs no new codes. so 1 and 15 must be for drivers air bag.

I then brought some 4 ohm's resistors and connected these into the connectors which would go to the air bag and tried again to clear fault codes, still wont clear so now thinking it might be the clock ring.

Any thoughts?

Thumbs up Fixed Air Bag Light

Quick updates, been busy on eBay managed to get a second hand multi-function steering wheel with air bag for 16 only wanted the airbag, (but had to do a 80 mile round trip to get it).
Then brought a slip ring off eBay for 17.

Went to fit the air bag and slip ring today and when I moved the slip ring forward found the plug had come off. Refitted plug put it all back together. The loom was tight so re worked it.

Interesting I found an old rusty T25 socket bit by the slip ring so some one has been in this location before.

Reset system with B800 now all ok

FAULT LIGHT HAS FINALLY GONE

If anyone lives near Dartford Kent you are welcome to use my B800.

So total costs:

B800 21 off eBay from China, delivered in a week
Complete Steering wheel with Air bag 16
Diesel (in my cay) 15
Slip ring 17

Total 69 my local mini specialist wanted 50 just to look at the codes. Plus might sell the air bag and steering wheel so might break even.

Good work there for 69.
Essential to repair as it is a safety feature which could save a life and its become part of the MOT. Honest John in the Telegraph recommends a company which does this sort of stuff cheaper than the dealer.
