Question about 1992 Chevrolet Camaro
Does it actually say inf resT ??
early 90's cars are infamous for this light staying on. It seems that there are two sensors, one on the frame underneath the battery box, and one underneath the windshield washer container. Both bolt directly to the frame. These little electronic wizards detect a crash via vibration in the frame, and then set off the air bag.
The problem is two fold.
First, their location promotes getting water on them.
Secondly, the water causes a corrosion problem between the sensor and the frame. These little wizards are so sensitive to corrosion, 1/2 of one ohm of resistance that developes between it and the frame will send a fault light code to the computer, and trigger the trouble light. Most of the time, the air bags are still functional, just the light is on.
