The operational procedure:
Use the main cable of Autel MK808 scanner to connect the device and vehicle
Enter Diagnostics function
Select Volkswagen-> System selection-> 6R- Polo-> Control unit-> Airbag-> Trouble codes
Autel MaxiCOM MK808

There are three fault codes have been getting on the screen.

  • U112100: Passive/Sporadic- Databus missing message
  • B100A1B: Active/static- Front passenger side airbag igniter resistance too high
  • U112100: Passive/Sporadic- Databus missing message

The B100A1B fault code seems to relate to the airbag system (front passenger airbag system). What we did is simply unclipped a connection underneath the passenger seat to actually cause this fault. So I’m gonna do is just pop that down there one second. I’m gonna see if I can reach under and plug this airbag back in. But after that, e airbag light is still on the dashboard.

So go to click “Clear DTC” on the MK808 scan tool.
Turn the ignition on and engine off
The DTCs and freeze data will be deleted. Just go to continue.
The fault codes are cleared successfully and no fault codes are detected now.
At the same time, you can see the airbag light is gone.

Awesome! It’s very easy to reset the airbag light by using Autel MaxiCOM MK808 diagnostic tool.

Hope it helps!
