Question Computer

On the way to Barcelona, while driving past Stuttgartm the Airbag Fault light came on. This resulted in the LCD computer display going a little wonky, and 1000 km's later refusing to come on (although I could still see the infor on the TV display). Just outside of Barcelona the Motor Fault light came on.

British Motors in Barcelona replaced the motor sensor (which was faulty), and reset the airbag fault, and reset the computer. The said at the time, that I would need to replace the computer or the computer memory (they had difficulty translating the word into English so I don't know which it is).

I went to the dealer near me in Germany, who again reset the airbag fault, but after they fiddled, the computer no longer displays on the LCD. When I took it back, they stated that I would have to buy the whole instrument panel.

Does anyone know if this is correct?

Try disconnecting the battery for 30mins. The K-bus electronics apparently reset after that
