Last night I took off steering wheel airbag, took apart and inspected the connection plug, put all back together. I will check with MES tonight if that has made a difference. The cable was 'crushed' and bit, hoping this is not damaged causing the open circuit issue (see pictures - took yellow sheath off. Is there a solution if so?

I notice from the first pic that the back of the plug for the airbag connector has come off. Has it always been that way? Is it possible that the exposed terminals could be shorting when reassembled? Iíd cover that with tape when you refit it.

(And Iím not sure why this would give you a passenger airbag error, but you never know...)

Itís worth also checking the wiring diagrams in the Workshop Manuals section to see if they contain any clues.
