I have just been driving home and noticed my airbag light acting strange, everytime I turn right the airbag light comes on, it goes straight back off when I straighten the wheel and does not come on when I turn left, can anyone please shed any light on why it would do this when turning right?

that is a puzzler.

I had a problem with my airbag light as well, was on intermittently at random times, often during bumpy road conditions/heavy braking. Turned out it was the passenger seat sensor. Just got a little box thing off ebay, disconnected a wire going to the seat and plugged this box in and the light went out. it simulates the output you would get from a correctly functioning passenger seat sensor with someone sitting in it. if you do decide to give it a go (only about £10 from ebay) remember to disconnect the battery before unplugging anything airbag related.

but don't see how turning would influence the light. hmm...

Think it is the passenger side door as when a passenger is in there and I turn right and the passenger leans towards the door the airbag light comes on. Also does an airbag light on fail ur mot?
