Air bag warning on display and dash


As far as I know there should not have been anything near the rack and pinion for the air bag.

Best to get the computer scanned to find out what's causing the light to go on.

2009 nissan altima with continuosly flashing airbag light . started doing this after steering rack was replaced due to leaking seal.


the air bag has a clockspring that is probably broken, but I'd check for a sensor that is not hooked up before I replaced it.

Where is the airbag module located on 2004 vw jetta


The airbag module is a serious safety device and should not be tampered with. The entire air bag system ie module , air bags, seat belt tensioners etc are treated as one unit and there fore not a serviceable item or part replacement there of. The module should be located in the bowels of the dashboard (yellow wiring ) and mounter to the bulkhead. Do NOT tamper or adjust any componants.Good luck

Installed new rack ,have air bag light on


The steering wheel needs to be prevented from rotating when it is disconnected from the steering linkage. The airbag system uses a rotational sensor that is just below the steering wheel mounted airbag. (Often called a clock-spring)
I suspect is was damaged during your repair.
The airbag fault codes need to be read to confirm.
Good luck.

I have a 1998 plymouth voyager, and i just replaced the rack n pinion, and now my airbag light is on, my horn, and cruise controls on the steering wheel dont work.


behind the air bag is what is called a clock spring, it supplies power to all of those functions, chances are when the rack n pinon was replaced the steering wheel was not locked and it turned too many times, and it broke the connection behind there. so chances are you will need a clock spring. if you had it done at a repair shop I would bring it back and have them repair it.

Airbag light stays on


This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

Air Bag light stays on after engine starts.


Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

They're working in Airbag-Simulators and Occupancy Sensor-Simulators.

VW Beetle Airbag Light


The problem is the seatbelt latch. The wiring right at the latch and the strap are broken. Seems there is not enough slack in these wires to allow much stretch. You may be able to repair it if you can splice these wires back together if not about 160 to 170 for a new one. you can have it put on a machine and if the code leads back to the latch then you know this is the problem.
