Occupancy Sensor

Hi, I have an airbag fault which is reading as passenger occupancy detector fault. Uder the seat there is a small control box which the occupancy mat plugs into. Does anyone know how i can tell if the actual matt is at fault or the small control box?

i have had it done

the final price was

£53.10+vat for the pad p/n 65 77 6 921 952
another part for the seat £10+vat p/n 52 101 945 543

and total 1.5 hrs labour for fitting

and the added advantage of the seat is now much firmer again

so about £150 inclusive of tax labour etc

$200 ??????

Go to here: REAL OEM and put in your vehicle info. Then search by the part numbers that Storme has listed above. It gives you an approximate price.

But Storme if that P/N is the same for the Euro/US version, I will gladly mail you one next time. They are saying that the clip cost $0.06 and you paid 10 Pounds? Or do you get number four or ten in this picture: Parts of the system for my vehicle?
