Hi there... i would be cautious with purchasing that vehicle. It may not have been in an accident but if the airbag light is on that means that there is something wrong with it. Either the sensor or the bag itself. Could turn out to be nothing at all but then could be something that could cause injury. Other thing to keep in mind is if you are ever in an accident where the airbag should deploy and it doesn't you could run the risk of severe injury. Have the dealer repair the problem if you really want the vehicle. Put it in writing on the contract so you can back it up if anything should go wrong.

    How do you reset a 2005 Honda CRV airbag light?


    with a SCANNER.
    your mechanic or Honda Dealer will provide this service....

    Airbag light on dash flashing then stays on


    Sorry, your going to have to go to the dealer to have the air bag system looked at. There are to many sensor's around the truck and it could also be a PCM problem.
    Too dangerous to play with Air Bags your self. Dealer can scan the ECM to pin point the probem.
    Good luck and hope this helps, Just don't want to hear someone got hurt over Accidental  Air bag deployment.

    Air bag light stays on


    If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!
