You can unhook your battery for 15min. which should reset your airbag light. If it keeps coming on it is very possible it is the airbag clock spring which is located in the steering column causing the airbag light to come on. These are known to go out and cause the light to come on. The steering wheel has to be removed with a steering wheel puller to replace this part. This repair should be performed by a qualified mechanic. I had the same problem with my 05 Grand Caravan and the clock spring fixed the problem.
Normally the light comes on when airbag fuse is blown. But it could be a bad airbag sensor located at the front of the vehicle. Check fuse first, if that's not it, I would recommend taking it to a mechanic to have sensor changed. They are very delicate sensor and could deploy airbag if not done carefully.
no, the pre tensioner goes bad(I say your probably have over 100,000 miles on this car), and it is a problem with dodge caravans, plymouth voyagers. You need to check the chrysler web site for recalls on caravans. this may have been on there,
It might be a loose sensor in the bumper. If the van is 5 years old or older, you should have the air bag system system inspected. You might be able to see what the problem is if the computer stored a code when the light came on. I would highly recommend getting the system inspected.
this is telling u that a fault has been detected in the airbag circuit by the airbag diagnostic monitor module (system is disabled when light is on), the most common cause is the rotating ribbon contact called the clock-spring contact has a break in it's circuit to the airbag on the steering wheel. To replace this you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel. Follow factory protocol for disarming airbag or serious injury can result from unwanted deployment of the airbag
ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.
Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down
when you undo the battery cables all you are doing is reseting the computer and not erasing any codes. I willing to bet that all it is a blown fuse for the airbag or you may unpluged the wrong terminal when changing the compressor. double check
