The airbag light on my 2006 VW Jetta came on during 2006. I never received notification from VW of a defect but when bringing my car in for maintenance, the dealer said there was a "notice" of a defect in the underseat sensor and/or wiring. On 6/27/06 my car had a driver side front in crash. The air bags did not go off. The body shop said that there was probably not enough damage to set off the airbags. Shortly after getting my car out of the shop (2+ months because VW parts are not readily available) the airbag light is back on. I've brought my car in for maintenance at the VW dealer but they have never mentioned the airbag light which is plain sight. I worry about the safety of my family, friends and myself. To add insult, the electronic switch on the trunk operates off and on, the trunk does not latch unless slammed repeatedly, and within the last week the driver's electric window has ceased to function.

The battery current was low in my 2006 Volkswagen Jetta and it caused a fault code. The dealer is saying 3,500 dollars to fix this. The fault code is making my airbags not work.
