2008 type r srs issues.....
Apologies for the long post in advance! I am at my wits end on this and really desperate for advice to avoid having to go to the stealers! Tl;DR at the bottom, background below.
So, airbag light (red and yellow) have been on since I've owned the car. I've been trying to fix it over the last few months but it's coming up towards an MOT and I've reached desperation!
I started by reading the flash codes from dtc which read 2-8 and 2-2. Quick Google said this was passenger side seat belt tensioner. Found the resistance they should be, got some resistors to try and diagnose the problem but no difference.
Took the car go a friend, plugged it in and it came up with 28:10 and 22:10 on a Bosch diagnostic machine, now saying front right (both errors seat belt tensioner). Great, I have been working on the wring side! Plug the other side all back in, swap the resistors yo the driver side, reset the srs, still 28:10 and 22:10
Next I try and take it to an auto electrician. He scans the codes and now it comes up with 28:10, 22:10 and 54:60. 54:60 is internal failure so advised to pick up a second hand srs unit. Order one off eBay that is confirmed as no crash data and all good whilst at the same time sending my unit off to crashdata or said they could reflash it as 54:60 is likely corrupt data so they could flash over it back to normal.
Both arrived today. Plug in the reflashed srs unit, exact same flash codes (2-8,2-2 and 5-4). Plug in the new srs unit and EXACTLY the same errors.
I know there is a chance that I could of just got seriously unlucky, but I'm thinking even I can be that unlucky! Any advice would be massively appreciated!
TL;DR: srs unit showing 22:10, 22:80 and 54:60 errors. Got it reflashed and still showing the same fault codes, also ordered a replacement that shows the exact same faults
