Unhappy Skoda Felicia w plate, radio goes off on throttle up, air bag light on.

Skoda Felicia W plate, odd little fault came in today , but you can get a fix no trouble.

Customer said airbag light came on, well ok, but the odd thing is that the radio will stay on at idle, but goes fully off on throttle up.

And sure he is right, start idle motor and radio is fine, throttle up to 1500 RPM and the radio will switch fully off, back to idle and the radio will come back on again.

We checked the codes in the airbag, = two codes set, air bag voltige high, air bag voltage low.

On run up, I noted the hand brake light, go bright on throttle up, and got out the volt meter, 14v at the batt: at idle, but on throttle up 18v +, yes he has an alt: reg: fault.

I pulled off the small cable from the reg and now the radio works just fine, the reg: is held in by two small screws and can be fitted without removing the alt: .
