Question about Pontiac Bonneville

2 Answers

My service air bag light is steadily on in my car. I took it to the dealer today and it will cost $800.00. This includes a new air bag control module plus the installation which is under the seat and carpet. They say my control module is not communicating with the system. I've been reading that air bag control modules can be reset and codes erased. Will this help in my case. Air bags have never been deployed and can it be reset if module is not communicating

My dashboard lights (battery emergency brake light & air bags) are flashing on my dashboard while driving but go out when I come to a stop on my 2001 santa fe


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

03 ford f250 quad cab 4x4 the PAD switch appears to be faulty and maybe the PAD off light the blink codes are 2 5 i have tried to jiggle the key in the PAD lock and have gone off and on several times...


refer to Passenger Air Bag Deactivation Indicator in this section.
Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Indicator
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) indicator is a visual indicator used to inform the front seat occupants of the passenger air bag deactivation state. The PAD indicator is a stand-alone lamp installed into the vehicle instrument panel in a position visible to each front seat occupant.
The restraints control module (RCM) controls the state of the PAD indicator through a direct hardwire connection, based on information provided by the occupant classification sensor (OCS) system and the passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch. The PAD indicator is lit to indicate the passenger air bag module is disabled. An exemption to this is when the front passenger seat is determined to be empty, and therefore indication of a deactivated passenger air bag module is not necessary. In all other cases, the PAD indicator is unlit when the passenger air bag module is enabled.When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the PAD indicator prove-out period is initiated by the RCM. The RCM briefly activates the PAD indicator to prove-out the indicator function and verify to the front occupants proper functional operation of the PAD indicator.
The PAD indicator will be lit/unlit within 1.0+0.5 seconds of a change of state from the OCS system or PAD switch.When an OCS system fault is present the SRS defaults the passenger air bag module to enabled regardless of the PAD switch status or the size of the occupant in the front outboard passenger seat. The PAD indicator will be unlit. The cost of PAD SWITCH is near to $85. and yes it’s a dealers part/but some car parts store keeps the compatible PAD SWITCH parts with them.they are not original but compatible.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Dash lights went out, so i had some fuses removed to see which one was bad. next thing i know the airbag light was on.


You just need to turn it off again. You created a false trigger of the light. You may have to have dealer do it with scan tool.


Prove Out Procedure
Turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules or restraint system diagnostic tools installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------- Restraints Control Module (RCM)
The restraints control module (RCM) performs the following functions:
  • signals the inflators to deploy the air bags in the event of a deployable crash.
  • monitors the air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) for faults.
  • illuminates the air bag indicator if a fault is detected.
  • flashes the air bag indicator to indicate the lamp fault code (LFC) detected.
  • communicates through the data link connector (DLC) the current or historical diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).
  • signals the generic electronic module (GEM) to activate a chime if the air bag indicator is not available and another SRS fault exists.
NOTE: The safing sensor is internal to the RCM and is not repaired separately.
The RCM monitors the SRS for possible faults. If a fault is detected while the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the RCM will illuminate the air bag indicator located in the instrument cluster.
When the ignition is cycled (turned off and then on), the air bag indicator will begin its prove out sequence. During prove out the air bag indicator will illuminate for six seconds, go off for two seconds and then, if a system fault exists, flash the two-digit LFC. The air bag indicator will flash the LFC five times, then it will remain illuminated for the rest of the key cycle. The RCM will also communicate the current and historical DTCs through the DLC, using a scan tool. If the air bag indicator does not function, and the system detects a fault condition, the RCM will signal the GEM to activate an audible chime. The chime is a series of five sets of five tone bursts. If the chime is heard, the SRS and the air bag indicator require repair.
LFCs are prioritized. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The RCM includes a backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bags in the event that the ignition circuit is damaged in a collision before the safing and air bag sensors determine that deployment is required. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the battery ground cable is disconnected.
Electrical System
The electrical system that supports the air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS):
  • is powered from the battery through the ignition circuit.
  • provides the electrical path from the restraints control module (RCM) to the air bag modules.
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the air bag indicator.
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the data link connector (DLC).
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the generic electronic module (GEM).

Airbag light flashes 3 times then 6 times then stays on


This is for the driver's side air bag.
This may be due to a high resistance or poor connections in the side air bag (SAB) wiring harness circuits or restraints control module. This condition may occur on vehicles equipped with, or without, side air bags.
Ford has a Technical Service Bulletin out on this no. 03-24-1.
To service, install an overlay harness which incorporates soldered terminals and tin wiring. Refer to the service procedure for direction on which side air bag kit to order. Installation instructions and illustrations are included in the kit.
FOR VEHICLES WITHOUT THE (SAB), FOURTH DIGIT OF VIN IS "Y" OR "Z" :
  1. Install a new Non-SAB wire harness kit 3L2Z-14B455-AB. Refer to the installation instruction sheet included in the kit.
FOR VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH (SAB), FOURTH DIGIT OF VIN IS "C" OR "D" :
  1. Install the appropriate harnesses as indicated below. Refer to the installation instruction sheet included in the kit.

2001 suburban air bag light flashes 7 times and stays on we had the abs computer changed a week ago.any thoughts thanks


Was the ABS module changed at a GM dealer?
The SIR module (air bag) does no recognize the new ABS module, that is what is causing the flashing lamp.
The dealer will be able to reset the SIR module.
Let me know.

Sounds like a dealer only part. Sorry. There are other routes you can take with these vehicles. you can change out the air bag suspension with regular shocks and struts.

I have a 2004 chevrolet, Aveo. I have taken my car to the dealer twice for the air bag warning light coming on, and they cleaned the wire connection and fixed it. For the pass year the light has been on,...


1. There is a recall on the clock!!!

2. The 2 codes you have, lead me to the Transmission Control modual, Is there a 3rd code with those 2?? If so it would narro it down for me

3. From all my reserch for the air bag it leads to the Air Bag Diagnostic Unit, about $200.00, on line. Dealer cost is $240.00 plus labor. If under warrenty, they dont want to change...and eat the cost..

There is also a control modual under dash behind heater controls...which has something to do with the clock and a few other things???? Have not had the chance to get into it????
