Children in car seats should never be put in the front seat.  In fact children under the age of 13 should never be in the front seat.  Their bodies are not large enough or strong enough to sustain the impact of a crash or an airbag.  For your baby's safety and your peace of mind it'd be best for you to keep your baby in the rear seat and get a mirror for the back seat to see what's going on.

The problem is the seatbelt latch. The wiring right at the latch and the strap are broken. Seems there is not enough slack in these wires to allow much stretch. You may be able to repair it if you can splice these wires back together if not about 160 to 170 for a new one. you can have it put on a machine and if the code leads back to the latch then you know this is the problem.

SOURCE: need to disable passenger airbag in lexus 2003 rx300

if you open the passanger door there is a slot for the key. you will need to press the button on the circular key to pull out the real key.  Don't do that!The airbag is a safety device which can save the life of the passenger in case of an accident!However,as the Corvette is a 2-seat car,if you are talking about a child,I strongly recommend you to install an aftermarket Passenger Airbag ON-OFF switch.That is possible even for older car models

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

The horn dose not sound when button is pushed on steering wheel. Passenger air bag is off, and how can I turn it on to operational mode


As far as the passenger airbag is concerned - OFF may be normal. This is an excerpt from the owner's manual (page 1-67).

Passenger Sensing System
The vehicle has a passenger sensing system for the
right front passenger position. The passenger airbag
status indicator will be visible when you start the vehicle.
The word OFF or off symbol will be visible near the
clock, located in the center of the instrument panel,
during the system check. See
Passenger Airbag Status
Indicator on page 3-27
.
When the system check is complete, either the words
ON and OFF or the symbol for on and off will be visible
under certain conditions.
The passenger sensing system will turn off the right
front passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted
side impact airbag (if equipped) under certain conditions.
The driver airbags are not part of the passenger
sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with a sensor that
is part of the right front passenger seat. The sensor is
designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
(if equipped) should be enabled (may inflate) or not.


The horn is another matter. There are four possibilities here. I will list them in order of likelihood:

  1. Bad switch in the steering wheel. These are common failure items.
  2. Bad horn relay
  3. Bad horn assembly itself
  4. Faulty wiring in the horn circuit (including fuse)
You can have the switch(es) replaced in the steering wheel, but they are just as likely to fail again. I have had this issue happen in the past, and I simply went to the bottom of the steering column, found the horn button wire, and installed a dashboard mounted horn button. It is legal in most jurisdictions for inspection purposes as long as the button is easily accessible by the driver.

The ABS dashboard light is always on, where are the ABS sensors located?


The ABS sensors are in airbags depending on the model you have. Best way is to use a ODBII reader to check the airbags to find the fault.

Some alfa's have issues with the connectors coming loose, it is common in the 147 and 156 for people to end up soldering the connector under the passenger seat.

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

How do i deactivate srs so i can replace front seatbelts on 2005 yaris


Disconnect the battery negative terminal.
1. Wait at least 90 seconds after the ignition switch is
turned off and the negative (-) terminal cable is
disconnected from the battery before starting the
operation.
(The SRS is equipped with a back-up power source, so
if work is started within 90 seconds of disconnecting
the negative (-) terminal cable of the battery, the SRS
may be deployed).
2. Do not directly expose the steering pad, front
passenger airbag assembly, center airbag sensor
assembly, front airbag sensor, front seat inner belt
assembly, seat position sensor, occupant
classification ECU, front seat side airbag assembly,
side airbag sensor, curtain shield airbag assembly,
rear airbag sensor or front seat outer belt assembly to
hot air or flames.

Air bag lght came on after my husband pushed the passenger side seat back, it stays on after a few seconds of flashing



Hi,

If you are certain this light only illuminated after your husband moved the seat, then he may have disturbed a wiring loom, or a crash sensor beneath the seat.

- Disconnect the NEG (-) battery lead and wait for 5mins (this will disable the Airbag circuit & reset the computer).
- Look under the seat for any wiring looms - ensure the connectors are tight and secure
- Also look under the carpet, for a crash sensor (small square box) and if found, ensure the wire connections are tight and secure.
- Once you are happy everything is ok, reconnect the battery lead.

If the Airbag light comes back on after a few drive cycles, then you will need to have codes read from your vehicle's computer (your local dealership can do this for you) which takes about 15mins.

The fault codes will identify which component/s within the Airbag circuit is causing the issue.


Good luck.....

What the srs light means


Your SRS light is related to your "airbag system". You need to have it repaired because you have no airbags while that light is on.
