The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?

There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

Yes it will affect the drive as the airbag will just pull out or even rip, the reaon why shocks are installed is to hold everything in one piece.

Im trying to convert my airbags to shocks does my 97 lincoln town car only have airbags in the rear or is it in the front also

Airbags are the safety device that blow up to keep you from dying in a crash.

You do relieze that they mouont to the car differently?

Replace turn signal arm on 2000 vw new beetle

You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!

Service air bag light on. Limits the car to 90 mph

HI, First off, it's hard to say what is causing the rattling under your car (for anyone, even a tech driving your car), so the best way to find out is to have it put on a lift and checked. Many service centers that sell shocks adn struts will take a look for you, mostly because it's a potential job for them. Any shop that would charge you to do this is not the place you should be taking it to. Second, in the STS, while there are airbag sensor problems reported occasionally, the sensors are usually the ones behind the front bumper. Is it possible that the person who told you this may be talking about the "shock" (hydrolic piston) that the front bumper is attached to? The sensors are right there, and maybe they mean that a bad piston can create a problem with the airbag sensor. That sounds accurate. As far as while you're driving, the sheer forward air pressure forced against the front bumper may be setting off the faulty sensor warning. It's speculation at this point, but it just may be the problem. You can take care of these individual things in a measured way, and avoid paying for unnecessary repairs.
