    Hiya,

    Last week I was turning the wheel of my Seat Altea XL 2012 when the steering stiffened and a cracking or clicking sound came from the steering wheel. After I pulled over and restarted the car, the steering was fine but an airbag light came on. The error code is 00588 airbag ignitor upper limit exceeded. N95. Also, the horn no longer works now.

    Would this error be cleared if I was to replace the whole airbag or could it be something else? Is the horn in the airbag too?

    Ive gotten a quote from airbagteam.com for a used one thats £180. My mot is next month and I really just want to get this fixed quickly.

    Cheers for listening,
    J

    Fixed. It was the slip rings.

    Paid £60 for diagnostics and £350 for repairs and part.
