Airbag light. ABS ALSO - the speedometer, rev counter and engine temp ... 30 mins driving (apart from engine management light which stays on). ... I have ruled out problems with the alternator and the relays - they're all fine.
I think you mean either ABS or SRS.
ABS refers to the braking system so this would need investigation....I.e.check brake fluid reservoir and for signs of leaks round brake pipes and wear on pads.
SRS supplemental restraint system...usually airbag warning light. They should go out after 5 seconds on start.sometime they can be reset by using various techniques like leaving the driver door open...turning the ignition on but not starting the car... Then pressing the door light switch button on bottom of driver door opening 5 or 6 or 7 times and turning off ignition All within 10 seconds.(you may need to experiment with this number )always hold the door light button in on last count whilst turning ignition off.then close door restart car.wait 5-7 seconds then it will reset unless there is actually a problem with airbag.this can occur when you disconnect battery or replace battery.the interruption can
alter airbags sensor.also some sensors are housed in the horn component of car horn and the spring on horn can interfere with the sensors normal operation.So did you recently remove battery or use horn excessively ?finally if it is an airbag fault and the light remains on it may mean your airbag will not deploy and your seat belts won't lock in a collision scenario.best in that event to get to a garage.if thus is of help please vote thank you.
i to have had some FUN with this darn system and replaced ignition cylnder(dealer has to program)can help usally for a few years ....but i dont want to swaer thats the samething causeing yours......feel free to repost
Test alternator. With engine running, voltage at battery should be at least 14 volts. If not, remove alternator and have it tested at parts store. Low voltage could be setting all 3 lights. Let us know if you have more questions.
Open the hood. Lift the battery cover, then there is a little black box on top of the battery. Open it. bet it is burnt and melted. Do NOT take it to the dealership. You'll pay $600 . You need an alternator cable and a new fuse block. 30min fix.
