Re: 2003 jeep liberty air bag light on is it easy to fix
The system needs to be checked for cades. Airbag codes are pulled out
of the ECU with the use of a scanner tool. A good auto mechanic shop
will have this or you can go to the dealer. YOU SHOULD NOT TRY TO
REPAIR THIS YOURSELF,YOU COULD ACTIVATE THE AIRBAG!!!!!
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

code p0340 refers to cam shaft position sensora bank 1-circuit malfunction===causes --wiring Cam sensor---ECM. The only connection is the ECM to both units so they may have unpluged the ECM to service the air bag problem. IT could be as simple as using a code reader to reset the CPU. I may also be a coincedence and there may be a fault in the cam position sensor.. I would discuss the matter with the dealer service department to determine what is what.
If you do not have a switch to disarm the passenger airbag it can not be done by pulling the fuse. If you disconnect anything you run the risk of the air bags deploying on their own. The only other way to turn passenger of is to disconnect the bag all together.
You need to pull codes from the computer to see what it is, since air bags can kill you I will give you the web site of the builders of air bag systems so they can help you. This will let you determine if yo want to do this on your own. It is http://www.airbagsolutions.com/contact.aspx
they will charge you $20.00 to pull the codes then you will know what is going on, you can post back here with the codes for help with the problems. It can be dangerous working on the air bag and not having any experince and since you don't want to buy a scanner at $500.00 they can tell you how to pull codes safely. Thanks for using fix-ya
you cant you have to go to dealership or a good shop with the wright computer airbag light can also turn on when one of the sensors go out to if you fix the sensor it will go out but if it is the head computer box for the air bag system you either have to replace it or go to the dealer to get it reset that system is differnt the the computer for the rest of the that one is all by it self
It probably will cost a few bucks to get the code reset, but you don't need to go to the dealership, most shops with a good scanner equipped for air bag code reading will be able to diagnose and reset the light. The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed... But, just for fun, before doing all this, i'd disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to an hour and reconnect it back, some systems do effectively reset themselves this way.
there are many sensors and and each airbag have sensors so you will have to get it scanned to know where to start. just a note air bag parts can be very expensive so check out your local salvage yard. they can save you hundreds. good luck paul
