This LRO reader emailed LRO.firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for advice about airbag fault codes displayed on the dash of his 1995 P38.
I have a 1995 P38 4.6 with air valve gas conversion but now get SRS and airbag fault codes displayed on the dash.
Upon diagnostic investigation (along with a plethora of other fault codes) they can be reset, only to return a short time later. Here in Australia this is an MoT failure (though I had thought about challenging the regulation over a systems fault compared to a systems check fault). I have experienced fluctuating voltage where a battery on its way out can trigger SRS fault codes.
The mechanic who did the conversion categorically denies it's his wiring, and my non-local specialist categorically states it's the wiring.
Anything you can shed light on in terms of the best solution will be enthusiastically received. And please don't be afraid from pointing out the obvious answer!

1995 - that's 20 years on dirt roads, so I suspect the cassette (the 'coil spring' connecting wiring from the rotating steering wheel to the fixed column). If you have problems with other steering wheel-controlled devices, that would point the finger.
