Question about Mazda 323

2 Answers

Airbag Light Flashing in Mazda Astina 323 1994: Had a battery replaced by RAA Auto Service in SA who stuffed up the procedure and now the Airbag light is constantly flashing indicating an airbag system fault. Of course RAA don't know how and are trying to weasel out of fixing it. Mazda has no quick fix and needs to run test at my cost to diagnose the problem. Before I do that, does any one have any clues on what this issue could be? Thanks Lou

Battery replacement not using a memory saver technique will corrupt the ECM program
try having it reset using a scan tool which mazda would probably do at high cost to you

Hard to give you ideas on what the problem is without checking to see what the codes are in the airbag control module.

SOURCE: mazda 323 both airbag lights

The airbag light will come on any time there is a problem in the air bag/passive restraint system, while the light is on the air bag(s) is disabled. To the cause, the most common cause is the rotating contact under the steering wheel that connects the bag to the firing control module, it's common name is a clock spring, which it looks like when the cover is removed. If you intent to replace this part make sure you disconnect the battery for 10 minutes before starting to work on it. 1 other note, there will be a trouble code stored in the systems control module, you should access that code first to be sure of the part that turning the light on.

SOURCE: find front airbag sensor 2003 Sierra

The front crash sensor is on or near the radiator support under the hood, it is a little square box, one question why do you think it has a problem? it is a mechanical device, a steel ball bearing sitting in an inverted cone, when you crash the ball bearing breaks free of the magnet, that breaks a connection and signals the airbag monitor to fire the airbags, it takes a 5+ MPH impact to set all this in motion, there are side impact sensors as well, the physics of these are a little different, they are measured in G force of the impact, hope all this doesn't bore, one note the fuel that fires the air bag is made by the same folks that make rocket fuel for the solid fuel boosters of the space shuttle.

Airbag lights comes on and dont go off


Sadly, you will need a scan tool for this reset. On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the ...scanlist.aspx page listed below.

The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis (and not the one at Auto Zone---it needs to be airbag system specific, like a good body shop or the dealer). Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong! Although it's a pay site ($14.95/day), it's a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.

How to reset the airbag light on chevy impala 2009


Your not going to be able to diagnose the SRS (Air Bag)
System, without factory trouble charts to follow,way too
many codes & procedures to follow.

A battery is about $110.00 & the cables are only3 years
old,so they should be able to be cleaned

I would only guess, that they didn't do anything about
your intitial complaint on the Service Airbag light,not
for $100.00

Ken,
This is a common problem. I have a similar issue with my 92 Miata. I currently have a 10 code problem with my airbag.

It's fine to use a battery with a higher cold crank rating than original. Consider the rating in the manual to be a minimum requirement. You'll be fine as long as the physical dimensions and terminal placement are compatible with your car. The battery manufacturer's guide should tell you which battery fits your car.

Airbag light


This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.
