The wires going from to the airbag plug could have been pinched at reinstallation.I think that the ignition switch was replaced and it is very easy to pinch the wires from the airbag plug.One has to be very careful when reinstalling.

    If the light is blinking 7 times. it is the plug under the passenger seat. unplug for a few seconds then reconnect. restart engine and light should go out.

SOURCE: Airbag light

This is a common problem on the escape. It can be solved by unplugging the connector for the airbag underneath the seat and then re-plugging it back in. It is the wire that tells the airbag that the seat belt is latched in. I had this problem and it worked for me.

Airbag light


The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles require a OBD2 code scanner for the diagnosis. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself.

Airbag flashes 6 times


The flashing light means there is a problem with the SIR system. When the light stays on the system is disabled.
You will have to take it to a shop to get it scanned to find out the problem.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car


{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

Air bag light is blinking


Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

Airbag light


Takeit to a dealership and have then look at the airbag system. One of 3 items could have gone bad/broken . seat sensor, airbag clock spring, or a wire in the steering column. Oh, if u have a passenger side airbag that is another set of wires and sensors for that one also. Dealership have the scan tools for airbags.

Airbag light blinks 7 times and it stays on.


One of your sensors are not working properly. It is still safe to drive. Have you bumped into something lately or had to jack the brakes? I know it's annoying but it will not go off on you.

Blinking airbag light


The blink code you are refering to is : Intermittent or Repaired RH Radiator Primary Crash Sensor Feed/Return Circuit Open , which means your right hand side frontal crash sensor (airbag sensor) is not working, therefore your airbag system is disabled...
