Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Air bag light

My air bag light continues to chime on and off. Mostly when I brake and accelerate. My rotors and brakes need changing but do you think that may be the cause of the problem?

    Its the air bag light. The dealership cant even figure out why it comes on and off. The sensors seem to be fine so I was told so I don't know how to remedy this problem.

What sensors do they refer to? crash?, the most common cause of the light based on my expearience is the clock-spring contact under the steering wheel has an open circuit, the part is cheap, but is is a little hard to install since the steering wheel must come off.

Lights chime


You may be in need of an ABS control module. It's hard to say without diagnosis. But anytime I have seen this problem that has been the solution, you can also check your wheel speed sensors, if you install aftermarket axles sometimes they can amuse the same problem, it could also be a fuse.

Hello I saw the break alert light lit on my


Usually when th fluid level low light comes on, it is because the fluid is ging to the front calipers to fill the pistons that push the brake pads against the rotors. This is because the pads are worn down and probably need replacing.

As for the 3 beeps, it is not related to the brakes.

if it is 5 beeps, it is the air bag or pretensioner.

When the ignition is cycled (turned off and then on), the air bag indicator will remain lit for six seconds and then go out. If an SRS fault exists, the air bag indicator will then 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 data link connector (DLC), using the 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.

Air bag light blinks anti brake light on


Depending on when you start counting the air bag blinks...1-5 or
5-1...that means it won't work. (Good news, if ya don't want it to.) Ford assured me it will NOT activate.

Sorry I can't help with the brake light, but...I'd check the fluid level & if the brakes work fine, I wouldn't concern myself with it.

Not for sure on rotors, but you may try pulling up on the e-brake pedal. I had that problem with a ford and thats all it was. Hope this helps.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

Air bag remove 98 gmc sonoma


It's unlikely the turn signal switch. Try disconnecting the switch mounted directly above the brake pedal. If the light turns off the problem is in the brake switch. They commonly go bad and can be picked up at a gm dealer for about $15.

1999 f150 airbag light stays on after blinking upon start up!


Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
  • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
  • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
  • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
  • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove Out the System
Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules 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 tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Active Commands
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.

Changing emergency flasher switch


Disconnect the battery for 1 hour before you start and the air bag will be safe, be very careful when removing it, they are still an explosive device.

Air bag light


if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law
