Hi S.L.,
What is the Model and year and the problem. :?:

Just for info I use the iCarsoft ODBII Renault specific units.

Hi enrique, im looking at a can clip (dont like the laptop idea), or ive just seen that a stand alone icarsoft i907 pro would do the trick.

As a clone can clip vs a real icarsoft im leaning alot towards the icarsoft at 140€.

Its an airbag light on my 2001/2002 megane.

I've been to renault and they hooked it up to a clip. Ive eliminated the airbags, but the light stays on. Rather than going back and spending another €45 for them to turn it off, i would rather have my own machine to do stuff with in the future - especially if it works with other cars as well

It's usually the yellow wiring connectors under the seats that are faulty or the ring connector that allow all electrics to pass up the steering column and through to the wheel (and its airbag). This is, of course, general and NOT Renault specific.

in the end i bought the icarsoft rt v1.0 - a Renault / Dacia specific machine. https://cardiagnosis.es/p/icarsoft-rena ... odelo-2020

does exactly what it says on the tin. was delivered over night, free shipping from Madrid. @ € 129,00 its a bargain, considering it does 60+ different cars, and more are added with each software update.

@ Trooperman - I had eliminated the airbags with resistors - if I disconnect them it shows the fault, add an inline resistor and it shows 0 faults.
