Sorry for the Noob question.

I have the airbag light coming on my 2004 E85 after removing the door. It is not resetting with Carly. Looking around I think i need to reset it with INPA

Can anyone tell me if this is the correct product please:

I note they don't specifically refer to E85

Thanks

You need to check that the version they supply has the model you need on board...I bought two of these with discs and neither had the E89 in them..it’s a pain for most mortals to retrofit the additional models :thumbsup:

I also find resetting airbags with INPA a bit hit and miss - doesn't seem to communicate well with all the airbag modules - I suspect it depends on which version of INPA you have (mine is pretty old now). Had more success with DIS but my laptop is always getting COM port conflicts with it.

If you just want to reset the airbags and are not interested in the other stuff INPA can do I would go with a basic C110+ tool from Amazon. No messing around with software installs / COM pot issues and does the job.

I work in Shoreditch - happy to bring my laptop in with INPA and try and clear the codes for you if you would like?

+1 for a C110+ or the C310+ (I have INPA / ISTA-D / DIS etc etc, but for speed and ease of use I highly recommend the C310+ (Or the cheaper C110+). I've cleared a handful of peoples Air bag lights with mine

Ah nice one pal - I think i might invest in the C310+

Loving the work on the third brake light you've done by the way!
