RepairPal Expert Overview
The vehicle requires a certain amount of battery voltage to operate all of its electrical components. The air bag warning light and passenger side air bag off notification light may both come on if the battery is slightly weak and allows the voltage level to get too low. This would keep the front passenger side air bag from deploying in an accident.
We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall; the passenger side air bag may not deploy in an accident. Please contact your Audi dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
The air bag warning light and passenger side air bag off notification light may illuminate due to low battery voltage. If this occurs, the passenger air bag will not deploy in an accident. Dealers will reprogram the air bag control module software. The Audi recall number is JR. This recall began on December 5, 2006.
