How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe

Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

Airbag light flashing 4-2code dont know what it means or whats wrong, do you or anyone know what it means?

Flash Code 42 is for the driver's airbag circuit. Most common problem is with the clock spring or another term is the sliding contact. This is not something you should mess with if you dont know what your doing. As testing wrong can set off the airbag. If you choose to take it apart look for a bad connection, maybe just a wire popped off behind the bag but again caution as these are very dangerous 200 mph deployment! It can kill.

Airbag light on 2003 ranger

When you turn on the ignition switch does the light flash and then stay steady on?

If it's flashing it could indicate the fault code. By instance, two long followed by 5 short blinking will indicate an error code 25

The same code may be repeated before the light stay on.

By the way, any changes or repairs done recently on your vehicule?
Let us know if you get additional information
Hope it will help

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated

Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.
