Hello I have a polo from 2013. I just inherited it from my grandfather, whom has not driven it that much. Most of the time it has been in garage. Only done 28.000 km
After I got it a lamp started lighting up. The airbag-seatbelt lamp, is yellow.
I therefore have investigated under the seats where I found an umbrella. Hoping that it had interfered with the signals, I tried ensuring that all the plugs where firmly connected. I believe one may not have been, but the light is still on.
I acquired an ODB reader for the ODB plug, but it only reads error messages in respect to the engine, i.e. not helpful.
I then acquired the Haynes manual, which states in the body section that there is plug behind the air control for the driverside. I have tried following the manual to remove the cover to see the "wished-to-be" ODB-plug. But I am affraid of using excessive force.
My question is therefore is there a way to read error messages using ODB for the body-system of the car, not the engine ECU? Am I on the right track with the above mentioned plug hidden behind a airflow control?
Do I have to throw in the towel and pay my "fine" to the mechanic?
