Default 01217, 01218 - Side Airbag Igniter: Resistance Too High

Hi,

I recently replaced my seats and I am now receiving this error.

Does anyone know anything concerning this code?

I installed 4.6 Ohm resistors in the plugs, but still I get this error. I even removed the resistors and cleared the codes, but it keeps popping up.

It's weird!

Default gotta go a bit lower....try <4 ohms in those connectors and be sure you're

putting the only wire that is left open is the brown wire...the resistor goes in between the other two.

Default cool!..it's weird, because i was tinkering with that on this dude's car, and sometimes i set

that code when the resistance was borderlining on the threshold value.
