Sticky relay perhaps, but regardless, have it checked, you really don't want that going off for no reason, and you do want it working properly in case of accident. At least have it properly diagnosed & decide from there.

Air bag light always blinking?


Mine came on when my car hit 120K mi. I also reset it using a sequence within the car.

Problem Scenerio: turn car motor on, car conducts self test, during which time airbag light stays on for 5-second (or 5 or 6-beeps)..it turns off for a second then flashes 'off and on'...and annoys the hell out of you as you drive...especially at night.

Solution 1: put black electrical tape (band-aid) over airbag light indicator...annoying problem gone.

However, in VA the airbag light can't be flashing to pass the annual car inspection, so....

Solution 2: Reset the Airbag light using the following sequence I discovered and heard about:

1. Turn key / ignition to 'ON' (Do Not Start). and await for the self-testing procedure to end (Air Bag Light stays on for about 5-seconds or '6-beeps')
2. As soon as the Airbag light turns off - turn the ignition to OFF position and count 5-Mississippi's (that's 5-seconds).
3. Then turn ignition back to 'ON' Position and repeat step 1 & 2 again.

Conduct Steps 1 & 2 - Three times in a row.

After the 3rd or successful timed sequence, allow the car to go through it's complete self testing stage and as soon as its done the airbag light will flash...but at a slower pace (That is good!) That means the cpu is resetting. Once you observe the slow flashing airbag light, turn the car off, then start it normally and the airbag light 'should' reset (not flashing and bugging the **** out of you).

Then, take the black electrical tape off the dash panel and throw it away.

This is no joke and it really works!! if you have any questions, contact me. carl@sat-tel.com

I have no sound in my car..working just fine then nothing, no radio, no seat belt beeping,no beeping when doors open , no turn signal sound, no airbag beeping, no sound when locking or unlocking door, no...


Not knowing how you checked the fuses, I think they need a second look, maybe a continuity check with a multimeter which can often be done with the fuses plugged in. You can buy a digital multimeter for under $20 US and they are handy around home as well. You'll find them at Radio Shack, auto parts and home improvement stores or at other electronics outlets.

This sounds much like the 'accessory' fuse is blown or the contacts in the fuse box or on the fuse itself are corroded. The latter can be corrected by removing and replugging the fuse several times.

Ford 2001 F150 pickup truck beeps approx 5-6 times every 5 minutes. Think i has to do with the airbag.


Yes you are correct, it is an airbag problem./

The Airbag indicator lamp is burnt out, and a flash code is waiting.
Radio shack ( or similar ) should still have the replacement bulb for it.

Once you put it back in, the airbag lamp will flash a code that is a number, t ( ie flash 3 times ) then another number ( ie flash 5 times ). You will need that code for the next step in the diagnoses. Don't be alarmed if you get 10 sets of 3 flashes, that is actually a LFC ( Light Flash Code ) 33

I have a 96 Mercury Sable and everytime it is started it beeps 5 times for 5 cycles. What is this for


if here is no airbag light on when you first turn on the key. then the beeping is coming from the airbag module. you will have to take cluster apart and replace airbag light bulb, that should stop the beeping.

Beeps coming from over by the glove box after turning engine off.


the beeps are an airbag trouble code, that code is for the following:
In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

Airbag light remains on after changing fuse of rear wiper.VW POLO


This is a common occurance in vw's.
In order to turn off the airbag light you need to have a scan tool hooked up to your car because the airbag detected a fault of some sort, or it could be a faulty component in the airbag system itself.

Cruise control,and radio controls on steering wheel, now air bag


The problem is the coiled ribbon contact under the steering wheel (we call it the clock-spring contact) that connects the stereing wheel controls to the steering column wiring harness, this is a printed circuit that is coiled to allow the wheel to move and still have a psychical contact for the wheel switch's and the airbag, anyway replace that contact coil, u must disarm the airbag to do this repair, follow the factory procedure to do this or serious injury can result if the airbag fires.

Steering-airbag indicator constantly showing red


A. you need o take the car in to the dealer, it might be covered under warranty.

B. Does the red light work when pressing the buttons? If no you need to replace the remote batteries. Be VERY careful removing the screw, it's VERY easy to strip the screw out.

C. with the radio off push and hold the "clock" button until it beeps, the just below you will see the "H" and "M" buttons, once you're done tap the "clock" button again and enjoy.
