We had the airbag warning light and message on panel when our X290 was 2 weeks old. It was a faulty airbag control module which was replaced under warranty. Had to wait a week for the part. Apparently when this warning is shown the airbags are de-activated until the problem is fixed.

Sometimes it is better to stay silent and just let people think you are stupid, rather than open your mouth and prove that you are.

Thanks for that info Colin. My dealers are about 2 hours drive, at the gateway to Co. Donegal which is a great Atlantic county for wilding etc. I was intending to wait until we were up that way again in a month or so to get it checked.

I will move it up the priority list.

Sorry it's four years old.
Has about 40,000 on clock.
We are doing some long mountainous trips this year and thought better to do this at the service / mot now.
We parked next to a poor Italian whose belt had gone en route to Lake Garda at 45000 miles - made us cautious.
Apparently when belt was removed the mechanic found a leak from the pump had marked the belt hence change pump as well ( I'm not a mechanic)

I've had this issue on my Ducato base for a little while but as it doesn't appear to be having any knock on effect on any of the performance of the vehicle, I'm ignoring it.

or can someone give me a very good reason why I should spend a good wodge of money to get the cluster repaired as I am out of warranty.

I know it's there, it's no deal, so as they say, if it ain't broke, why fix it??

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........

That sounds sensible to me - I think 5 years is the recommendation. It's also recommended to change the pump at the same time regardless.

Correct, I believe all warning lights must be working.

it's only 2 warning lights that are faintly lit when cruise control is enabled - being faintly lit doesn't mean they aren't working
