Seems that my daughter's Suzuki Swift was jump started while at the panel beaters for a new front bumper, and has fried something in the air bag system.

Error Codes are B1084 and B1094 "Driver side open or short" and "Passenger side open or short."

She's just taken delivery of a new vehicle so I have the Suzie to try and sort out the problem, dealer said something like $800+ (and probably ++++)

Can someone suggest a specialist place in Melbourne's East which deals with such things?

MMM. Front bumper replacement and airbag issues. They couldn't be related by any chance could they. I find it hard to see how jump starting the vehicle could fry that specific circuit. But hay I know nothing about swifts. ;)

Yes, we went through all of the above. The repairer denied it, the insurance company won't do anything because their repairer denied it.

I have found the reference manual and am working through the sections that appear relevant.

I have also found 2 interstate places that will reset the SCM but don't want to send it away if it isn't faulty.

I was hoping to maybe find a place in Melbourne where they are on top of these types of faults and could zero in on the problem and fix at reasonable cost. Can't really afford to let some dealer apprentice learn while the meter is running, without a cost cap.

if the vehicle went in without faults then I assume the error codes were identified when you picked it up? the logic process is hard for them to challenge

you could try the UK or German Suzuki/Open/Vauxhall forums assuming that your model is a cross breed with other GM products.

you might discover that the GM ODBC box ccan be used to zero and reset your computers if its a shared/rebadged platform.

I say that as I used some suzuki switches in the merc and was able to source info from the Opel forums about harness layouts etc...

My daughter has taken it to the Suzuki dealer who read and cleared the codes I quoted, but they came back. As i said in the post, "dealer said something like $800+ (and probably ++++)"

I'd still like to know if anyone knows a place in Melbourne that does this kind of work regularly; I can send the main box away to be re-coded, but that would be $170 odd wasted if it isn't the problem.

I have scoured the forums and found a method to clear the codes that appears to work - Within 10 seconds, turn ign on, turn parkers on and off 3 times, then press door light button 4 times, ign off.

When I do this the airbag light briefly goes off, then flashes while it's doing its diag, then comes on solid again. I am assuming the codes are as before but don't want to spend $340 on a suitable Autel scanner which I probably won't ever need again.

Update:

Sent the module to Hobart to be reflashed, since no-one in Melbourne can do it. Left my PO at 4.15pm Wednesday, arrived at destination 8.00am Thursday, arrived boack to me at 9.00am today.

Plugged it in while holding breath and woohoo, all good again.

Total cost $120. Airbag Resets Australia
