My air bag light is on all the time, even when someone isn't even in the passenger seat. It's bright red with a little person in their seat and the air bag going off. I haven't been in an accident though and this light has been on for almost a week

The red light indicates that you are having a problem with your SRS systems. Could be something as simple as a loose or coroded connection. Either way you should take it to the appropriate dealer and have them inspect it for you.

SOURCE: air bag light

there is a wire that is attached via your seatbelt latch that runs under the seat.
It will make a "DING" sound when the seatbelt is unlatched and the the door is open.
Find the wire and pull it out then complete the circuit by wrapping the 2 wires together and maybe throw a little tape on em!
Bam !!!
prob solved.

Or you could just pull the fuse for that sensor. haha

SOURCE: Air bag off

Your car has second generation airbags and it monitors weight in the passenger seat. If a child sits in the seat the computer looks at the weight and turns off the airbag so not to deploy in a crash. If you put anything in the seat like a purse or briefcase the computer will think its a baby and turn off the airbag.

SOURCE: air bag light comes on and stays on. Never any accidents.

Had the same problem, found the wire disconnected under the driver seat (there is a yellow plug and with one red wire, which is fine, and one green wire, which is broken. Fixed the wire, light went off.

SOURCE: Air bag light won't go off

It likely is a bad passenger air bag. Did you try switching it back to off on the switch,and unhooking the battery for 5 minutes.

The sensors which fit below the passenger seat are missing. I want to know the name of these sensors.


seat belt sensor or air bag sensor, some cars measure weight in the seat on the passenger side and if it is below a certain amount it disables the passenger air bag, a safety for little kids, other sensor for seat belts, if there is any weight and no seat belt is fastened it will turn the seat belt warning light on in the dash.

Passenger airbag light is on, saying the "passenger airbag is off". It stays on all the time. There are no passengers or weight of any kind in the seat. The light even stays on when someone is...


Don't know what year model car you have. Some year models have a switch you can turn the passenger air bag off. Check you owners manual in the dash/controls section and the air bag section

Theres a red circle light on with a person sitting in the seat with seat belt on.light has stayed on for 2 weeks now does it have something to do with the air bags?


No, that is just an indicator that the driver or passenger isn't wearing a seatbelt. If it's on and you are wearing a seatbelt, it just means the light is malfunctioning. A mechanic can fix it for you.

I left the window open in the car, and it is -30 here in canada and snow filled the passenger side of the car. i cleaned out the car, nothing seemed to be wet, but when i started the car the air bag light...


I think this car has an air bag sensor in the passenger seat. the air bag is usually off untill a person sits in the seat which a pressure switch turns on the air bag. Moisture has probably made contact with connection. I would go under seat and disconnect electrical connections and use a hair dryer to dry connectors.

What does a constant SRS light mean?


To pinpoint the cause of the problem,you has to pay a visit to the dealer.


I recommend you to go though my check list to make sure it's not something cause by dirty contact.

=====

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.


Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

02 honda accord v6 SRS light on


SRS = Safety Restraint System. Work all your seatbelts, make sure they snap in & release properly. If you have the system where it detects someone in seat without belt on, may be a sticky switch under seat,may be able to fix it just by sitting in seat then getting out of it, or hitting seat cushion with hand, look for things like that. Also check owners manual for location of possible air bag fuse blown. If you can't cure it, stop at shop or dealer & have it checked, just in case it is airbag not working.

"Check" indicator light


The Check light is on because one of the sensors in the system is not being read properly by the vehicle ECU. You need to take it to someone & have a scan tool hooked up to it to extract the
DTC(s) that may be stored. Please be advised that a loose Fuel Cap will set the Check light for sure.

The Air Bag light does a self-test, and, if no one is in the passenger seat, it turns to the "Off" setting. There is a sensor under the passenger seat that tells the Air Bag ECM this. The light is there to let you know that the pass air bag will not go off, in the event of a collision, and no one is in the pass seat. Saves the inmsurance company money, probably.

2006 reo passenger air bag light says its off. how do i turn it on?


The passenger air bag will only come on if there is weight in the seat. The manual says 40 lbs, but it is more than that. When my 60 son sits in the front, the air bag stays off. This is a safety mechanism. An air bag can kill a small child, so it automatically turns itself off if there is little or no weight in the seat. Also saves having to have the air bag repacked if you have a wreck with no one in the front passenger seat--a costly repair.
