SOURCE: I replaced my manual front

Hi,

Unfortunately, this light cannot be reset without taking the vehicle to dealer. I understand the frustration, however this is not a DIY. I wish there should be a way to bypass, however as of now i have never heard of any bypass for this.

This could be anything from a fault with a front end discriminating sensor to the sensing diagnostic module, to even a faulty with one of the air bag modules or the wiring to and from these items. The only way you are going to be certain is by hooking up a scan tool and checking the sensing diagnostic module for trouble codes. This requires a scan tool that can read body failure codes such as the inflateable restraint system. If you have access to one of these tools and can retrieve and post the associated trouble code or codes I can really begin to assist you. I wish I could tell you there was another way but there just is not.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

SOURCE: airbag light on dash is on. Told $600 to replace

Wow, that's expensive. $600 sure sounds like the air bag module itself. The air bag "sensors" located at the front near the radiator hold downs, there's 2 of them are around $45 each.

The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?


There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

Replacing severe


cebd8d08-0b93-4be4-a8ba-b0eb7c57df3a.jpgCheck connections under passenger seat.
The SRSCM sets DTC B1322 if
there is any fault in Weight Classification System.



In contrast to the initial
one-stage airbag systems, newer restraint systems involve complex logic to
select, or alternatively suppress, various levels of safety system deployment.


Inherent to an advanced
Restraint System is the ability to discern information regarding passenger
occupancy.


It is intended that these
inputs be provided through the weight measuring OC system.


The object of such safety
system is to reduce the risk and level of injuries by automatically adapting the
airbag(s) and seat belt pretensioner to the driving status of the vehicle, its
occupants, and the crash severity.


The current OC system covered
in this specification continually senses and classifies the front passenger side
seat.


OCS is utilizing a robust
weight measuring technology. Thus, if any of the following conditions occur,
'command zero' and 'accuracy check' should be performed


The weight classification ECU
or any of the sensors is replaced.


The vehicle is brought to the
repair shop due to an accident or a crash even though the severity seems to be
minor.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is off (not illuminated) when the passenger seat is not
occupied.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is delayed more than 10 seconds before turning off when an adult
passenger is seated in the right front seat.


The passenger seat is removed
from the vehicle and re-assembled.


Any accessories (side table,
seatback table and seat cover, etc) are replaced or installed.

Disable airbag airbagmodulhave a 2006 lincoln towncar,passenger seat has been removed,airbag light now stays on,how do i bypass the seat occupancy sensor


Its a weight sensitive sensor, so you would probably have to come up with some sort of resistor. I doubt you can bypass it.

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

How do you turn off the passenger side airbag of a 2005 Sierra??


if there isn't a key switch in the dash, then the airbag has a sensor in the passenger seat which measures the weight of the occupant in that seat and if occupant is to light in weight the airbag will be shut off automatically. otherwise if occupant is heavier than 110 lbs the airbag should then be on.

There is a sensor under the seat cushion that is basically a weight sensor, if a certain weight is not sensed then the airbag is turned off, it must be defective.
