SOURCE: i have a flashing air bag light on a 06 chevy impala

bignbad711: 1st, to address your issue with the airbag system. I am going to guess that you have no experience in SRS systems. This is not meant as an insult, it just means that I want to give you a little more input so you don't end up making an expensive mistake or a PAINFUL ONE! VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!! Ay time you work on an airbag system, disconnect the "GROUND" battery cable and allow the car to sit for a few minutes so the the residual power will drain off. YOU DO NOT WANT A MISHAP!
On the car you have asked about, it uses, Driver's side and passenger's side airbags. It has Seat belt Pretensioners (they are like little explosive charges in cylinders which at the time of the airbag deployment, will discharge and lock the seat belts keeping them from reeling out. Once it has been discharged, the belt has to be replaced. Obviously the side airbags, you would have replaced, however, did you replace the clock spring? This component is just below the steering wheel. When the airbags deploy, in most situations, the clock spring electrical circuit will sustain some electrical damage. A word of caution: if you haven't replaced the clock spring and plan on doing it, follow the directions to the letter. If you don't have any, got to the book store and you will be able to find several sources of manuals there that will show you how. You don't have to buy the book, just write down what you have learned. If you had come up against a stone wall, write back in and I'll see if I can help you out. The car, in being reconditioned, may have a damaged impact sensor at the front of the car (located above the A/C condenser on the driver's side). Wiring harnesses, can be damaged from collisions and it's not unlike body shops or rebuilders to miss the damage or improperly repair it. CAUTION! The connectors are quite different than the regular electrical connectors. These have positive locking devices to keep the connectors from coming loose. Study them before trying to take them apart. Your best bet should you have all your bases covered, is to have the system scanned. Most good shops have scanners to
which will scan the airbag systems, abs systems and more on most cars. I just spent over 8 grand for updates and upgraded my equipment. It "AINT" cheap to stay on top of things! (BOY, WHAT ENGLISH!) It is better to pay some money to get factual data than start throwing parts at the car trying to fix it. Most rebuilders use used parts including SRS components.
In reference to the radio, The radio actually has to get it's power through a component called a BODY CONTROL MODULE.
If you are needing a security code some type, as long as you can provide proof of ownership, the dealers can, with a Vin number in some instances with some things help you. I'm not as familiar with GM as I am with most import cars, so I wish I could offer you more input. I know that on some cars, it requires the removal of the radio the get the number off the back of it. This number is the one which the dealer can look up the code for that specific radio.
I hope what I have supplied you has helped in some way to further your quest to getting the car going.
PS: Autozone and a few other auto parts houses scan cars at no charge. As to whether they can scan airbag systems? I couldn't say. GOOD LUCK GUY!

SOURCE: 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.

You need to pull the codes from the computer, to know where to go next. Typically, there is a sensor that gets contaminated from road water...but pull the codes...

Could have damaged the front sensor, but you'll need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

Air bag light showing at the dashboard. It's intermittent happening. The air bag light dissapeared for a month then iy\t's back again. It usually appears for a couple of days. What could be causing t


The airbag light on the dashboard comes for few reasons, either there is a bad connection or connection came loose but than the light would stay on at all times, if it comes periodically than I would look up to the owner's manual and also find the airbag check label inside the car as it might be faulty or in need of replacement. The danger is that if it is faulty it can blow up by itself or in case of accident (hope none happens) it will malfunction.

Hello and welcome. this light comes on to warn you that there is a problem with the air bag system. when this light comes on, the air bag control module will store a trouble code, this code is used to help isolate the problem. what you will need to do first, is have the air bag system scanned for trouble codes. then a repair can be made on the system

I totalled my 1999 chevy s-10 and the airbag in the steering wheel didnt go off and i was wondering how to look and see if it was disabled


Do you want to know if the airbag was disabled or if the sensors were disabled? But basically, if the impact was from the side or rear, the airbag won't deploy. If the impact was from the front and went over the front bumper, again, the airbag wouldn't deploy.

AIRBAG LIGHT


The most likely cause is the rotating contact in your steering wheel, often called the air bag clock spring contact, you can have the air bag system tested for trouble codes by the dealer when the light is on, but based on allot of past repairs it is most likely the clock spring contact assembly.
