    I changed my seats from cloth to leather ages ago and it set off my airbag light. Ive ran inpa and the error comes up:
    98DF Resistor detonation pill detonation circuit3(Seat belt tensioner right) to small. Error clears until you restart!!
    Can anybody provide any input on what this means??
    Any help appreciated.

    probably need a new tensioner but try this, disconect battery first and let the system discharge for around 30mins, then put a 2.2ohm resistor accross the terminal of the faulty tensioner and connect your car battery back up and clear the codes.

    This should allow you to reset the dash light and it'll allow the rest of your airbag system to still work.

    Yeah you could try maplin but I'm not sure what they'll charge. Shouldn't be more than a few pence.

    Resistor should go on the plug to complete the circuit

    Make sure your battery is disconnected and leave it for another further 30mins (longer if you can) before working on it.
