    Hi there, I have Carsoft 6.5 for my 2004 cdse, and have intermittent faults with airbag light coming on and pdc not working. Having used the Carsoft it gave me112 seat occupation recognition and 2 rear right sensor. Has anyone any ideas what I should do now in terms of repair?

    Many thanks

    The seat mat in the passenger seat will be the cause of the airbag code, check the plug connection and wiring, if it looks fine it will be the usual seat mat in the seat, requires seat removal and strip down to replace the mat, not a 5 minute DIY job, seat mat is £74 from main dealers.

    Another way to check PDC sensors is turn on ignition and select reverse, listen carefully to each sensor, the one that doesn't click is the knackered one.

    Thanks for that advice, I have carried out the reverse idea and the rear right sensor appears to be faulty, how do I go about removal etc or is it a dealer thing?
