ABS warning light/Air bag light flashing

While driving from church this morning the ABS light came on. A little
while later the airbag light came on. Yesterday the little battery light
came on put that did not happen this morning. Is it safe to drive the
car tonight. I have to travel about 7miles in town and back.
Thanks

    I have a 1995 Ciera and have almost an identical problem. The air bag light will flash first, then the ABS light will stay on and the charge light will come on sometimes along with the air bag light. I would love to know what the problem is.

sure sounds like a battery / alternator issue , take it to an autozone or checkers , let them test the battery and charging system as a courtesy , and a second opinion . thanks.

SOURCE: the ABS and air-bag light are permanently on and a warning light

kenchyke, the shop may have disabled the air bag system to work on the car, and possibly forgot to activate it again. While this seems a bit odd to me that they could overlook this but, since it started after the work was done, you need to return it to the shop asap to have them check it out. Although the car runs fine, the abs system and the air bags won't operate, which could result in injury if you are in an accident (air bag will not deploy, abs probably disconnected).

The alternator is most likely dying. It's time for a replacement.

I would take to a reputable mechanic to have a diagnostic performed. Sounds like you have a serious electrical problem.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

The odometer light is out on my 2002 Ford Escape.This is a new issue. The air bag passenger side warning light comes on after 5 minutes of driving. The air bag warning light has been an ongoing issue....


The airbag light is probably an issue with the connector under your front seats. Look under the seats and you'll see the cables. Do NOT disconnect them. Just push them in tight. See if the light problem goes away. The conenctor gets off kilter when you put the head rests (from the back seat) under the front seat. Toss them in the back from now on.

BTW: You can get the computer to tell you the problem code with the air bag simply by watching the airbag lamp flash when you turn the key to 'on'. It will flash with short and long pauses. Count the flashes for each digit. For instance, 4 quick flashes, a pause, and then 3 flashes equals code 43. Then do a Google search of ford airbag code /your number here/. Odds are its the passenger side airbag connector. Do what I said above.

If you get tempted to disconent the cable, PLEASE do some google searching first. I 'think' this could cause a problem. Maybe not. But I only needed to push my connector in tighter to fix my problem.

Air bag light is on and the clock is flashing what


You have probably had your battery removed? Clock you can fix by setting the time. The airbag warning light indicates that ther's a problem with your airbag. Check if the co-drivers airbag is turned on. If the light is still on, take it to the shop to be checked.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!
