Wonder if the crash module needs replacing? Might be worthwhile getting the codes checked first :thumbsup.
Probably have to get the airbag module crash codes cleared. There are people on ebay doing this. Firstly just replace the airbag and if the dash warning light goes out, then all is OK, if not then you have to take the airbag module out and send it off to be reset. Dont take it to the dealer as they cant reset them They will only sell you a new module for £££.

Anyone know why they do this? You could have a dodgy sensor in which case it may well do it again. Also, did your seatbelt pretensioners fire as well?
