SOURCE: airbag light staying on

You need to use VagCom (the Audi diagnostic software - available for free at www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need to buy a cable from eBay), and you can find out which bag is tripping the light. If you have side bags in the front seats, chances are it's one of those - moving the seat too far back or down can strain the connector under the seat and cause it to open just enough to trip the light (happens on the Audi A4 all the time - mine happened three times before I fixed it for good). Once you know which bag it is, you can fix it. If it's one of the seat bags, zip tie the connector tightly to hold it together. Under the seat, the airbag has its own separate connector, and it's yellow (by law, all airbag connectors are yellow). Zip-tie it tightly without pinching any wires, then turn off the light. You should be good to go after that.

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: Air bag light stays on

If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

SOURCE: 1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

Did you disconnect the battery recently...did you operate the horn.both questions related to what may originally cause the airbag warning light to stay on.if it was the battery being changed reconnected then you have to reset the airbag light.this is quite simple on Fords.
with the engine off ....ignition key into the lock open the drivers door and keep it open ....locate the button at the bottom of door for courtesy light....hold your finger on it...turn the ignition on so that only the lights on dash come on...do not start car....now press the door button 6 times within ten seconds and on the last count of six hold it in whilst turning off the ignition.then close the drivers door and start.the airbag light usually flashes for several seconds then it should clear.on some model fords the button press count is 5 or 7 so you may need to repeat ....on mine I discovered I had to open the passenger door after the procedure before turning ignition back on.a word about the horn.on older model fords the springs that sit in the horn housing also affect the sensor of the airbag in some models .the springs gets rusty or bunged up and operating it will cause the airbag sensor fault.never attempt to remove the cover of the horn assembly as you may fire off the airbag.just remember to reset the warning light... And get a mechanic to look at the horn if it continues to play up.Please remember if the airbag warning light is flashing it may mean the airbag will be disabled and will not deploy in the event of an accident, this also means the seatbelts may not lock on impact either.please vote if helpful thanks.

Why does the air bag light stay on & the horn & cruse control does not work?


I don't know if these problems are related, but please start with checking all the fuses. The airbag may need a professional to diagnose.

Horn doesnt work after re-pack of airbag


The horn, cruse control and air bag each get power from the clock spring and each have a wire plugged no to it. The horn wire is probably not connected. When the clock spring breaks the horn and cruse control stop working and the air bag light stays on.

My airbag light and horn not working on my crysler voyager 1997


hey guys with problems with the air bag lights on and horn not working in Chrysler Voyager...

this is the problem with the steering wheel clockwork spring. The connector that brings the wires from the steering wheel instruments (hord, airbag, cruise control) and takes it through the steering column to the car body but allows steering wheel to rotate without breaking the wires. The dealer should have adivised you that there is a life long warrantly from manufacturer of this part. There was a recall notice issued by Chrysler in 2003/4 to bring in car for replacement of part if the Airbag light came on. I got mine done last year under the recall.

Air Bag Sensor light on & horn not working


Without knowing exactly what the air bag code is, coupled with the known fact that the horn is inoperative, my opinion for a viable solution is to replace the spiral cable or, as commonly called, the "clockspring". This device is the main wiring connection between the steering wheel and the wiring harness. If the circuit(s) open,due to a failure of the spiral cable, the air bag light will be on, the horn will not work,and , if you have a steering wheel Cruise control, it too may be inoperative. Best solution: replace the clockspring. Best advice: Get the airbag DTC's checked, and if you have an open in the driver side air bag circuit, the clockspring is def the culprit. Given that you had chassis work, your DTC just may be the front crash sensor, and the horn may just be unplugged, or bad, This is the best I can do for you, given the info that you have provided,
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.
