About two weeks later, after having put it all back together I get this warning in the display: Warning malfunction in the passenger airbag or seat pretensioner system! So, moving on: Two ideas come to mind, related to overall power distribution and voltage regulation. The battery was then reconnected, fault cleared with the Carsoft and up to now after 3 shutdowns and startups the light is still off. Unfasten the fabric adhesive tape from the vehicle wiring harness as far as an easily accessible point.
Thinking it would only throwing a fault on startup as per my homework reading on this very forum I disconnected the battery and found a bit of corrosion on the negative cable clamp. I read up on the swinging voltage test and thought it might be the battery and so charged the thing right up with an Oxford optimate type device. Due to the complexity of the occupant kinematics, the origin of cervical spine injuries is difficult to ascertain. A 50th percentile H3 dummy was used as a passenger model. Check your grounding points, in particular. In the process I obviously disconnected the door airbag.
Fair warning, as with all things airbag related it is recommended that you disconnect your battery before working on these items!

At this time only a statistical approach on the value of side protection is available. Ok so we waited a day and still the same thing.
To this end, the connectors are protected by a short plastic hose. Work through the corresponding test module and eliminate the contact resistance using the repair cables. The side airbag moves the occupant's body away from the danger zone, reducing the force exerted on the body during a collision from the side. Those are after a recent reset.

The problem is that we have so few data and not extremely severe accidents. I'm assuming a bunch of stuff was unplugged and maybe they just forgot to plug something back in? Baur: We do have a pretensioner. Based on the limited cases available, a proper statistical sampling could not be achieved at this time, however the results are to be understood as indicative of a trend. Start at the battery and work your way out, for any loose cables. E64 , not measured 986D Open circuit, firing circuit, thorax airbag, rear left E85, E60, E61 , or knee airbag, front left E63,E64 986E Control unit fault 986F Control unit fault 9870 Coding, firing circuit, thorax airbag, rear left E85, E60, E61 , or knee airbag, front left E63, E64 at variance 9871 Control unit fault 9872 Control unit fault 9873 Short circuit, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, to ground 9874 Short circuit, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, to positive 9875 Resistance, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, too low 9876 Resistance, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, too high 9877 Resistance, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, not measured 9878 Open circuit, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left 9879 Control unit fault 987A Control unit fault 987B Coding, firing circuit, belt tensioner, rear left, at variance 987C Control unit fault 987D Control unit fault 987E Short circuit, firihg circuit, knee airbag, front left E85 , or head airbag, left E6x , to ground 987F Short circuit, firing circuit, knee airbag, front left E85 , or head airbag, left E6x , to positve 9880 Resistance, firing circuit, knee airbag, front left E85 , or head airbag, left E6x , too low 9881Resistance, firing circuit, knee airbag, front left E85 , or head airbag, left E6x , too high 9882 Resistance, firing circuit, knee airbag. E61 , or knee airbag, front left E63. Is there something to look for that may be unplugged causing this? The different load values of the head and neck support the value of the system.
