Hello, The airbag light comes on whenever there is any problem with the safety restraint systems.
This means that while the light is on the AirBag WILL NOT deploy. It could be several things....Electrical short in the Steering wheel (supplies power to Airbag), Seat belt locks (if the computer thinks the seatbelt is not in use it won't deploy the airbag), these are the most likely problems, But it could be bad or loose wiring under the dash (aftermarket Stereo?), or Impact sensors, or the Body control module. Any other lights? When does it come on / go off? Random or predictible pattern? Goods news is the car does not need an airbag to drive ... Good luck , hope that helped..

Service airbag light keeps coming on on a 2009 buick enclave

2002 escalde service stability light and airbag light


Have to look at the module codes, most likely in enhanced data

I would say you need factory manuals to follow trouble charts

That is how I work

My guess is --you changed many parts that were good & not
diagnosed & found a problem first.

Airbag light


You can unhook your battery for 15min. which should reset your airbag light. If it keeps coming on it is very possible it is the airbag clock spring which is located in the steering column causing the airbag light to come on. These are known to go out and cause the light to come on. The steering wheel has to be removed with a steering wheel puller to replace this part. This repair should be performed by a qualified mechanic. I had the same problem with my 05 Grand Caravan and the clock spring fixed the problem.

1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager airbag light keeps coming on and when put on computer scaner the code came up "Driver quid open" what does this mean?


I am not sure whether the computer scanner you used was for the correct make and model Voyager. Woulod be helpful if you provide some details on what scanner you are using and where did you connect it.

The airbag light coming on has a few reasons.

One is that the airbag computer is failing certain tests and is giving a warning.
The other possibility is that the clockspring inside the steering column is faulty. some model were recalled in early 2000 for clockspring replacement under the component life time warranty.

Next time the light comes on you try to press the horn and check if it works. If not it is definitely clockspring. Otherwise the airbag circuit is faulty. In either case a visit to a service dealer is required.

The airbag light on the dash of my 2003 Audi A4 keeps coming on. How do I fix it myself?


its unfortunate but u are not able to. Your vehicle has multiple computers controlling all the electrics.
When a warning light comes on such as your airbag light or an engine light it is usually because of a fault.
if there is a fault and you ignore it and just cancel the light, then in an accident the airbag might not deploy. which would not be a good end result.
i would take it to a mechanic who has a scan tool to find the code that is causing your airbag light to come on, then fix the issue.
this will solve your airbag light problem and keep you safe on the roads as well.

cheers

What does it mean when the airbag light comes on?


Either the sensor in the bumper has lost communication with the airbag module, or the airbag module is bad, or the airbag package itself is damaged somehow.

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix


If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.

Airbag light


2001 toyota sequoia
airbag light on while driving,was told by dealer not to worry about deployment when driving.
costed 107.00 for diagnostic then another 180.00 for labor just to tell me the driverside SRS bag needs to be replaced and it would cost 1,160.00 to fix.
left dealer mad as hell, after paying them 285.00 of my hard earned money.
