XTOOL VAG401 (XTOOL V401)is a useful but not expensive handhold diagnostic tool for VW/AUDI/SEAT/SKODA.
A lot of customers say it works well in airbag light on VW. So today I will share the guide and customer reviews here.
Firstly, let’s see how to reset airbag light on VW.
Car: take VW MK4 as an example
This is the MK4 dashboard before resetting.
Connect xtool v401 to the vehicle via main cable and turn on the device to use
Enter diagnosis system-> Common system-> Select Airbag
It starts connecting device and reading system info…
Read out vehicle system info
Then go to read data and enter airbag menu.
Select “Read Fault Codes” to read out the related Airbag code
Then clears the fault code
Finally, the airbag light on the dashboard disappears.
Next, check the XTOOL VAG401 reviews from the customers who have purchased.
I bought this vag401 because every time my seat moves it causes airbag light go off on my 2003 VW Jetta Wagon TDI.
This turns off the airbag light once triggered.
This vag401 scanner cleared the airbag codes on 2013 passat. Use the diagnostic, option 15 and wait, it will say reading codes for a long time, be patient, once codes finally show up, push right arrow and select erase codes.
My daughter bought an inexpensive VW rabbit. The prior owner attempted to fix an airbag light and after throwing a bunch of parts at it the light was still on. I bought this v401 xtool to diagnose the issue. I plugged it in and figured out the menus after a little bit of fiddling. After clearing the codes I find out that was all prior owner needed to do to make the light go away! Great luck for both my daughter and myself!
I now have the right tool to diagnose any other issues.
Purchased the XTOOL V401 to reset the airbag light on my 2013 golf TDI. The XTOOL arrived in English with instructions. I was able to reset my airbag light within 5 minutes of opening the XTOOL. It was also able to read trouble codes from my AC system, a feature I wasn’t even aware existed! This tool is worth every penny for the DIYer.
Hope it helps!
