Have tried to reset but with no luck, now reading frontal air bag stage 1 fault, is this the clock spring ?

Expert:  Enes replied 3 years ago.
Is either bad air bag or clock spring. The clock spring fails more frequent than air bag if self but both can trigger same code
Expert:  Enes replied 3 years ago.
any update on your volvo did you scanc for codes what was the repair did you do it ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Could not fix it failed the mot will now have to take it to a dealer

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have already said that the scan on the codes did not allow us to reset them, the car failed the mot and now i have to go to a dealer, your advice no matter how well intended was of no use to me.
