If the air bag light is on this is how I fixed it it was a broken wire going to the seat belt in the driver side rear door in my ext cab truck there is a black rubber flex where the wires run from the body to the door. If u pull on the rubber flex from the body and the door you should see wires on both side of the flex pull on the wires one at a time mine was broken in the middle of the flex then I pulled a new Wire in the flex and spliced it at both ends

SOURCE: engin light is on

the check engine light can come on for any number of reasons mostly emissions related problems. the first step is to identify the code responsible for the light. there are many auto parts stores that will scan the vehicle free of charge for you. i suggest that first.

Working on the SRS can be very hazardous. For this reason I suggest you have this done by a professional. I would for sure get a second opinion on this.

My silverado king cab has service airbag light on . Dealer said code was seatbelt tensioner problem. how do i get to ti and what to look for


depending on which one it is, pass or driver seat, its within the female reciever of seatbelt. easier to remove seat and inspect wiring to pretentioner. check for open by unplugging it and check across connector w olhm meter. if no reading, its open and needs replacd. unhook your battery before attempting this.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

Mercedes clk 320 airbag


If the airbag light is on something in the system is broken. Go to AutoZone or similar and have them scan the airbag system for codes. My guess would be a faulty seat sensor or a faulty seat belt sensor

The air bag light on my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate Edition blinks 3 times then goes out,then does this a couple more times,then stays on constantly.Any ideas?


There appears to be a pattern of premature failure of seatbelt pretensioners in the mid-2000s Gran Marquis, especially the 2005 model year. See carproblemzoo.com or NHTSA complaints. Ford dealer wanted $103 for diagnosis and $501 for replacement of the part.

Warning light for airbag/seat belt pretensioners


Hi if all is working as it should this is most likely to be just a faulty sensor, you can have them reset or replace it,, best to have the car put on a quick diagnostice test to find the exact sensor at fault.
Hope this helps

Your Driver Side Air Bag Circuit has Low Resistance or is Shorted out. I would suggest taking it to a dealer for expert repair. Airbags can be very dangerous to work on.

AIR BAG LIGHT STAYS ON


look to see if you can adjust your seat belt pretensioner to better suit your height. look at the top of your seat belt- ( driver's side up and to the left of your left shoulder ) and see that you can very easily slide up or down your seat belt pretensioner. you are actually supposed to do this and even redo it if you ever readjustt your seat up or down or forward or backwards. believe it or not, your safety airbag light will come on automatically until you adjust your seat belt pretenioner in a way that the sensors read your seat belt to be safely set. naturally, if someone else drives the car he or she might have to readjust the seat belt pretensioner for the sensors to read them as being safely put. do this and the airbag warning light should go out.
