The most common cause of this light is an open circuit in the coiled ribbon contact to the steering wheel airbag, it is under the steering wheel, it looks like a clock-spring and it always the steering wheel to move while maintaining a physical electrical connection to the airbag module on the steering wheel, after thousands of times of coiling and un-coiling it breaks and then the airbag diagnostic monitor senses the open electrical circuit and turns the light on. U must disarm the airbag to remove the steering wheel to replace this contact, if this is not done the airbag can fire and cause serious injury.

Service airbag message is diplayed. Red airbag light on speedo is illuminated. 2007 gmc yukon


{: ) That's a double warning reminder already from your cluster, which means that some of the airbag features in your vehicle may not work properly in the event of accident or crash. Better have it checked by a scan tool to determine what particular component in the airbag system is causing it.

Chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"


First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

Service airbag light stays on


I have a 2007 chevrolet silverado and my service airbag light came on. I was out camping with the sterio going and ran the batt low but their was enough juice to restart after about 10 min. On the way home the service light stayed on and i just fixed the problem which was a fuse under the hood in the main fuse pannel. It is very common due to low voltage on start up to blow a 15 amp fuse.

Airbag light


This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.
