Ok that Sounds about right but only one problem, for all the components to be BAD, this means that this vehicle was involved in a serious enough accident for airbag to deplore. In most states its illegal to replace air bad that have been used. The airbag module will cost a pretty penny and the spool or "clockspring" will cost a pretty penny. Depending how much you paid for this vehicle + cost of these repairs to make this vehicle safe to drive becuase remember with airbag light ON airbags are NOT functional. The thing that I am thinking about is, was this a good purchased?JUST BEING FRANK WITH YOU Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Having codes read is a waste of time, if you don't understand
or work on vehicles

You need a shop to properly diagnose it,you know that

Any codes can be Googled to look them up

Type: OBD & the code

Codes have little to do with replacing parts

No parts get replaced until they are tested & fail a test

Saturn sl1 2001 one stay running when put in gear


The first thing that comes to mind is the IAC idle air control. this adjusts the throttle minimum position based on block temp, transmission gear, AC on/off etc. It may be indicating "check engine" Many local parts stores will read these error codes for free. It will help diagnose the problem. There are other conditions that can cause this but start there.

This is a pretty common problem on GM cars. Expensive to fix, and even harder to diagnose. Read this info found on this link. It will help you understand the problem and offers some good solutions to beat this yourself. Bypassing this terrible system is a lot better than trying to have it fixed. Instead of paying the dealer mechanic to stumble thru the system and charge you for unwanted items, do this yourself.

98 Saturn SL1, Was in accident: Deployed Airbags & Horn questions


The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.

'96 Saturn airbag light, do I need a reset or just drive cycles?


whomever changed the parts hasn't finished yet. Go back and tell them so. Or tell them the light is on so the parts they put in need warranty replacement. Good Luck

Airbag light on, horn doesn't work


There is a fuse for the airbag. If there is an owners manual for the car, look in that, it will show where the fuse is. On some cars it is in the fuse box under the hood.
