1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

SOURCE: VW Beetle Airbag Light

The problem is the seatbelt latch. The wiring right at the latch and the strap are broken. Seems there is not enough slack in these wires to allow much stretch. You may be able to repair it if you can splice these wires back together if not about 160 to 170 for a new one. you can have it put on a machine and if the code leads back to the latch then you know this is the problem.

SOURCE: 2005 cadillac cts has the airbag light on , i

the computer knows that input data from a system has a problem,so disconnecting the battery will not help.
that is the procedure for working on it so that the airbags do not deploy.
a code scanner will tell you which part of the system,including a seatbelt latch,tensioner, or seat position sensor is defective.

SOURCE: airbag light stays on in

You need to access the Airbag ECU (Electronic Control Module) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car in order to erase all faults - DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored, unlock and reset the Airbag ECU. Then the Airbag light will turn OFF after approx. 4 seconds, ignition ON.
Good Luck!

How to reset airbag light on at toyota Avanza


If you don't have a code scanner, the only thing you can try to do is disconnect the battery under the hood, wait 10 minutes reconnect battery then start the car and turn the steering wheel all the way to the left than all the way to the right, then move the power driver seat all the way forward and all the way back and put on all the seatbelts.

I disconnected the wires under seat to remove seat when replacing air blower , now my airbag light is on , how do I reset it


It should reset automatically if the plugs were reconnected properly
When I took the seats out on mine and put them back in the airbag fault light came on because the steering wheel airbag went faulty
So one of the other airbags or seatbelt tensioners is showing a fault only way to find out which is to get the fault codes read to find what it is that's unhappy




So it could be one of the other bags has had ahissy fit so get the fault codes read to find which one is faulty or poorly connected

Kia Sorento 2004 air bag light on


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

I removed my seats to shampoo my carpets in my 1999 323i and after I replaced the seats, the airbag warning light stays on. I have reconnected both seatbelt connectors and need help.


There are wires under the carpet, you might have pinched one re-installing the seat. I have seen this happen with shifter cables also.

Air bag light started coming on /dash constantly


the likely fault is the cables running to the seatbelt pre-tensioners under the drivers or passengers seat in the front of the car.

This may be simply the plug and socket have become seperated from sliding the seat back to clean, a common fault, or the airbag "clockspring" connection unit in the steering wheel has a broken ribbon cable inside the column housing.

To see if its the airbag clockspring, buy a 4 ohm resistor from maplin or radio shack, disconnect the battery on the car, unplug the airbag in the steering wheel and connect the resistor across the 2 contacts in place of the airbag, reconnect the battery, if the light goes out the clockspring is the fault, if not its the SRS system wiring under the seats.
