    youll need to get the codes read for sure could be quite a few problems
    occupancy sensor, pretensioners...

    abs and dsc together = something defective with dsc
    could just been the steering sensor is out of alignment
    again needs codes read to find out whats wrong.

    either a dealer or indy with autologic should be able to help, if youre not near a member wholl do you a code read

    which software ?

    you can get a standalone srs cable like a B800
    depending on how quickly you want it and how much you want to spend
    you can get from amazon in a few days or china (dealextreme) in a few weeks


    or the software like you mention, pasoft, car soft, inpa
    make sure you gone with a suitable connection for your car as many are for obd2 cables under the steering wheel
    im not sure if yours has that or a round one 20pin under the hood
    though many come with adapters

    I have the 20pin under the hood, the diagnostic cable has a conversion to usb aswell so i can connect it to my laptop, it runs on inpa.
    Under the steering wheel i have the same 20pin socket ?? i don't know for sure where it's hiding ..

    no newer cars have just the odb2 connection under the wheel

    older cars have the 20 pin under bonnet
