THE AIR BAG SENSOR NEEDS TO BE REMOVED, CLEANED, AND REINSTALLED. ITS LOCATED BEHIND THE CENTER PORTION OF THE FRONT GRILL (4 SCREWS) THE SENSOR IS ATTACHED ON THE FRONT SIDE OF THE RADIATOR MOUNT. REMOVE THE SENSOR (2 BOLTS) CLEAN THE BRACKET AT THE MOUNTING POINTS WITH A WIRE BRUSH OR EMORY CLOTH. ALSO CLEAN THE BOLTS AND WASHERS TO BARE METAL. REINSTALL. THE PROBLEM IS AFTER TIME THE CONTACT WITH THE FRAME CORRODES AND THE SENSOR LOOSES ITS NEGATIVE GROUND, WHICH IT NEEDS TO OPERATE PROPERLY.

You can't reset it. It's flashing a code. If you tell me the code, I can tell you the proceedure to isolate the fault.

when you start up, there is an 8 second system test and the light is on during this period. Then it flashes out a 2-digit code. The first group of flashes is the first digit and then there is a pause before the second group of flashes which represent the second digit.

flash-flash-flash-pause-flash-flash-flash-flash-flash-flash = code 36

What code is your system flashing?

I have a problem with nissan tiida 2005 ,after installing a alarm system the air bag light keeps on flasing despite of being recorded with dignostic machine could you pls help me on this


Whats the code that you get ?. something is wired wrong, a wire is connected where it should not be, the alarm system should be remove asap, you can deploy the airbags depending on the wire thats connected and that can be dangerous and expensive, there are yellow wires for the airbag, you should not tap into any of them for any reason so take a look and see if that was done , i would advise to disconnect the battery and what 10min to dicharge air bag system components, hope this helps.

My service air bag light is on in a 2005 escalade, how do i reset it?


If the air bag light is on, the system has detected a current fault. You could reset it with a scanner but it will return shortly. The system will have to be scanned, the codes pulled and then diagnosed from there. Keep in mind the air bag system is turned off when this light is on.

How do i keep my air bag light from flashing


Take it to the dealer to find out what the problem is. That's kind of like asking how to make a check engine light go off or an ABS light go off.

Airbag light flashes four or five time then pauses and repeats.


The automatic air bag sensor is tested EVERYTIME to start the car/van. Your system has detected a failure in the Air Bag deployment sensor. It is not dangerous... but the air bag with the faulty sensor will not deploy in an accident.

My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van flashes a 19 code. Does anyone know what that means?


Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!

REMOVE THE AIR BAG SENSOR, CLEAN CONTACTS, AND REINSTALL. ITS LOCATED BEHIND THE CENTER PORTION OF THE FRONT GRILL, ATTACHED IN FRONT OF THE RADIATOR, ON THE FRAME . CLEAN THE ATTACHMENT POINTS, THE BOLTS, WASHERS, AND BRACKET TO FRAME CONTACT. THE SENSOR MUST BE GROUNDED TO THE FRAME TO WORK PROPERLY

Strange beeping noise


I read on another site that if the indicator on the dash is malfunctioning and there's a fault code in the system, the beeping is a secondary indication that there's a need for service. I've had my air bag light blinking for some time now. Yesterday my gauges went out, Oil Pressure, Gas Level, Temp Level, and the Battery Charging Meter, all went dead. After starting the vehicle, it beeps 5 sets of 5 beeps. Since the dash obviously has problems, (Including the Air Bag blinking thing not working), the beeps I now hear are what you are experiencing. However, if you still see the air bag light blinking, maybe your situation is a bit different than mine.
