Question about 2005 Scion xB

1 Answer

Air bag light

I have 130k miles on my `05 xB. The Air bag warning light is on and stays on. Dealer says the Air bag clockspring needs to be replaced, @ almost $500.00 The dealer didn't have the part in stock, and I can't find one online anywhere. Just wondering if the clockspring is even what the problem is. Any suggestions from anyone that might know or have experience with the same problem? Thanks.

Airbag


The only way to reset the SRS lamp is via Testbook or similar. Make sure the SRS bulbs are good and firmly inserted before you have a reset or it may not work. SRS systems are VERY tickly and more than willing to log faults.

Also, keep in mind this recomendatios for other brand's vehicles (just as reference): On certain vehicles (Truck, Van and Minivan), the driver's air bag may become disabled due to a failure of the clockspring, which is located in the hub of the steering wheel.

CONSEQUENCE:
This condition will manifest itself through illumination of the air bag warning lamp, and could eventually result in a driver's air bag open circuit, if the part is not replaced in a reasonable amount of time.

REMEDY:
Dealers will replace the clockspring assembly on all covered vehicles with 70,000 miles or less. FOR THOSE VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 70,000 MILES, DaimlerChrysler will offer an extended lifetime warranty under which it will replace the clockspring at no charge if it fails. DaimlerChrysler will also reimburse owners who have paid to have the clockspring replaced on their vehicles.

Keep us updated.

Have a 2000 T&C van. The horn and cruise no longer work. My airbag indicator light is on as well. The left side turn blinker blinks twice as fast as the right one. Any suggestions as to what might be...


If you haven't checked your blinker bulbs, I would start there. The horn and cruise are not supposed to be tied together but, they usually go out when the Airbag clocl spring goes bad. There a recall for the problem but you need to meet certain requirements to qualify for the FREE repair. Please see below:

99 Dodge Caravan-Horn stopped working and airbag light came on


I have the same problem and it's not the rely or fuse... that would be too easy.

2000 Dodge Caravan ABS Light Question: 2000 Dodge Caravan. The other day my light for my air bag came on, but I noticed when it came on my cruise control stopped working and my horn doesn't work when I push on it. However the horn does work when you set off the alarm. Is it a fuse that's gone bad and if so which one is it.
Thanks for all your help.Christy
Answer: There is a device inside the steering wheel called a Clockspring. Basically it looks like the main spring of a watch. It's purpose is to insure perfect electrical contact with the airbag module in the steering wheel. Wiring for the horn and cruise control also go through the Clockspring. When the Clockspring goes bad you lose horn, cruise control and the airbag light comes on.
On 10/5/2004 a Motor Vehicle Recall, number 04V480000 was issued on this vehicle for this problem. From the recall bulletin:
Summary:
ON CERTAIN MINIVANS, THE DRIVER'S AIR BAG MAY BECOME DISABLED DUE TO A FAILURE OF THE CLOCKSPRING, WHICH IS LOCATED IN THE HUB OF THE STEERING WHEEL.
Consequence:
THIS CONDITION WILL MANIFEST ITSELF THROUGH ILLUMINATION OF THE AIR BAG WARNING LAMP, AND COULD EVENTUALLY RESULT IN A DRIVER'S AIR BAG OPEN CIRCUIT, IF THE PART IS NOT REPLACED IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING ASSEMBLY ON ALL COVERED VEHICLES WITH 70,000 MILES OR LESS. FOR THOSE VEHICLES WITH MORE THAN 70,000 MILES, DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL OFFER AN EXTENDED LIFETIME WARRANTY UNDER WHICH IT WILL REPLACE THE CLOCKSPRING AT NO CHARGE IF IT FAILS. DAIMLERCHRYSLER WILL ALSO REIMBURSE OWNERS WHO HAVE PAID TO HAVE THE CLOCKSPRING REPLACED ON THEIR VEHICLES. THE RECALL BEGAN ON OCTOBER 12, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT DAIMLERCHRYSLER AT 1-800-853-1403.
So at this point you should call your Dodge Dealer and make an appointment to have the recall performed on your vehicle.

Horn wont work but works with the panic button


The computer controls the horn and looks for a signal from the Remote Keyless Entry system or the horn button. Due to the fact that the horn works with the RKE but not when you press the horn button, would cause me to suspect that the Clock Spring mechanism, which is also used to activate the Driver's Air Bag, might be malfunctioning. When the Clock Spring breaks, the computer does not get a signal from the horn button so it can not opperate the horn. If I remember correctly, when the Clock Spring goes out, the Air Bag light on the dash either does not light up for 2 seconds when you first start the vehicle, or it comes on and stays on all the time, which is to let you know that the Air Bag is not functioning, and the primary cause is the Clock Spring. So check your owners manual to see if the Air Bag warning light on the dash is functioning normally. Your local Chrysler dealer can quickly and easily check the function of the Clock Spring, Horn, and Air Bag system, through the use of the DRB scan tool. If it is in fact the Clock Spring that is malfunctioning, the Air Bag module and the steering wheel must be removed in order to replace the Clock Spring, which should be left to a trained professional, that has been educated on the proper handling of the Air Bag system. You wouldn't want to accidentally deploy the Air Bag, as you could be injured. That and Air Bag modules can be expensive to replace.

Horn and cruise not working?


The clockspring in the steering column is broken, It causes the airbag light to stay lit and the horn and cruise control to stop working. See below:

My horn quit,and the air bag light stays on.


The horn switch and air bag module is all one unit, which the steering wheel needs to be pulled. I encountered this problem, and the whole unit needed to be replaced, just for the darn horn, the air bag was good, and you can only get the part at a dealer, the dealer told me about $800.00, and that doesn't include the labor.Needless to say that person declined the job.
Another stupid way these chrysler engineers designed these vans.

Air bag light


Sounds to me to be a faulty clockspring, have your dealer read the code, they can also estimate the job for you, also, a ten minute battery disconnect usually clears all codes. Disconnect the negitive cable whenever doing any electrical work.

This can also happen one at a time til none of these are working.The solotion is to get the clockspring replaced . I DO NOT suggest you doing this on your own!
