airbag problems

On a T5 from -03/04 I have the light and warning on airbag coming on. And this happens after changing battery last summer.
There was a weakness in the cables (brown) lying next to the battery, and we fix it. Impossible to shut down or "lock" the light...
Where to start searching for failure?

There's no such model as a T5 from 03.

Do you mean a T1?

If you have fixed a wiring problem on the airbag system then you will need VCDS or a similar code reader to read the code[s] and then reset the light.

If the light is still on then you still need to read the fault codes as there may be another problem.

Whilst the airbag light is on, some or all of the airbags may not work in an accident.

This may not only injure you and your passengers but it may also invalidate your car insurance too. This needs fixing ASAP!
