SOURCE: find front airbag sensor 2003 Sierra

The front crash sensor is on or near the radiator support under the hood, it is a little square box, one question why do you think it has a problem? it is a mechanical device, a steel ball bearing sitting in an inverted cone, when you crash the ball bearing breaks free of the magnet, that breaks a connection and signals the airbag monitor to fire the airbags, it takes a 5+ MPH impact to set all this in motion, there are side impact sensors as well, the physics of these are a little different, they are measured in G force of the impact, hope all this doesn't bore, one note the fuel that fires the air bag is made by the same folks that make rocket fuel for the solid fuel boosters of the space shuttle.

SOURCE: My airbag light just came on.

Airbag light came on for me shortly after buying it... apparently a bad censor but came on again shortly afterwards... Apparently the car is known to have a bad sensor somewhere for the airbags.

If the check engine light stays on it has something to do w/ your fuel line... be it anywhere from the cap all the way to the tip of your exhaust. When it FLASHES there's something MAJORLY wrong, like mine likes to misfire lately....

I believe there was a recall on the headlight wires and safteybelt sensor?

SOURCE: airbag light stays on

This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

2004 jeep liberty limited 4x4 airbag light goes on when you start the car then goes off for a few seconds then comes back on . both dash light and grab handle lights do this

The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.

Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.

Check THIS ARTICLE for additional details.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2008 Aveo and my airbag light has been on for almost a year. I refuse to pay dealer $80 just to tell me why it's on then have to pay them again to fix it. I heard that the sensors under the pass. seat can come unplugged, so my husband unplugged them and plugged them back in and it still the light is on. This is sooo frustrating....I really just want to reset it...anyone know how??

My airbag lights inside my 2008 Hyundai Sonata want goes off do Advance Auto reset the fuses inside the car to turn off the airbag lights

No they can only check engine codes and by law they are not allowed to reset any ststems that have a malfunction. A airbag light will reset if the problem is corrected.

The airbag light means that a problem with the airbag has been detected and that there is an error code stored in the airbag control module. The code will tell you what is wrong with the airbag. The code can be read at the nearest Lexus dealer, you will be charged a fee of $80.

Sometimes the light can be reset by disconnecting battery for ten minutes. Disconnecting battery will also delete the error codes stored. If the light comes back when you connect back the battery, that means that the problem is still there, and that the airbag control module detected the problem immediately.

How do i reset the airbag light on my 2008 mazda3

This is normally caused by moving the front seat back and forth and making the airbag connection under the seat loose. You should have your airbag system scanned with a computer. This will tell you where the problem is. You could check the connections under seat yourself first.

I have a airbag light on what do i do how do i reset it what do i check plz help me

The light is on because there is a problem with the SRS. Working on this system can be very hazardous. For that reason this is not a DIY repair. Take the vehicle to a professional and have the problem repaired. They will reset the light.

Airbag light stays on 2005 jeep liberty

It probably will cost a few bucks to get the code reset, but you don't need to go to the dealership, most shops with a good scanner equipped for air bag code reading will be able to diagnose and reset the light. The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed... But, just for fun, before doing all this, i'd disconnect the battery for 30 minutes to an hour and reconnect it back, some systems do effectively reset themselves this way.
