Question about 2000 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

Electrical problems. Side air bags went off by themselves

The dash light would flicker once and a while.  The warning system would report that I needed to check air in tires when they were fine,  The air bag light would stay on and ring but then would go out.  Then all of a sudden I had several warning lights come on and then stop then boom the side air bags went off all by themselves.  I stopped the car and started it again. the lights would flicker the speedometer did not work the security light was on and the dash would read driver two and then flicker to unknow driver and back again then the gauges would all go to zero then come back up.

Air bag flickering warning light ?

Read your owners manual?

Any dash light that comes on & stays on,
after the motor is running, is a system fault

Been that way since 1981,some 35 years,so nothing
new & nothing you shouldn't have lots of experience

Check for codes & diagnose the system with the fault,
the same as the last vehicle problem you had

For now, the air bags are turned off, until the problem
with the srs system is resolved

When I start my car, and start driving, the warning buzzer starts sounding, for quite a few minutes, then no warning buzzer for a short while, then starts buzzing again

the buzzer may just be a reminder to make you look at the dash to see that warning light.
You may need to get the dealer to have a look at it.
Sorry that isn't a solution, but something is better than nothing.

Air bag warning light permanently on on the dash board

  • The Air Bag Warning light on your dashboard functions just link a check engine light does. When it comes on and stays on there is a issue and the only way to know is to get it Airbag Control Module scanned by a VAG com scanner.
  • I don't know if Auto Zone can scan this but it is worth a try as they are free. If they don't then you will have to go to a repair shop and have it scanned. Once you get it scanned you will know what is causing the Air Bag Warning light to stay on. Then you can post it hear and I can assist you further. There is really know way to know until it is scanned.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Yellow warning light on dashboard looks like exclamation point- what does it mean car just bought no manual yet it is to the left

You have a low tire. Toyota Solaras and other Toyotas have tire sensor monitors. Go to a gas station and check the air on all of your tires including the spare. Once you get to the recommended pressure, you should be fine.

Yellow light on dashboard came on...

The tire pressure is low on one or more of the tires. Check the tire pressure and put air in and everything will work great

The ABS and air-bag light are permanently on and a warning light

kenchyke, the shop may have disabled the air bag system to work on the car, and possibly forgot to activate it again. While this seems a bit odd to me that they could overlook this but, since it started after the work was done, you need to return it to the shop asap to have them check it out. Although the car runs fine, the abs system and the air bags won't operate, which could result in injury if you are in an accident (air bag will not deploy, abs probably disconnected).

07' Toyota 4runner dash light

That icon is the low tire pressure light.
What you need to do is inflate your SPARE tire to the proper specs. The system check all 5 tires.
