there are many sensors and and each airbag have sensors so you will have to get it scanned to know where to start. just a note air bag parts can be very expensive so check out your local salvage yard. they can save you hundreds. good luck

You say you changed the cam sensor. A1391 code is a crank sensor on the top of the trans. bell housing.

SOURCE: airbag light stays on, fuses ok.

The airbag light will come on and stay on as long as there is an active code in the system. It will go off when the code goes to stored. Active means, something is malfunctioning right now so we will turn the light on. Stored means, something malfunctioned but is working now so we'll store the code in memory and turn the light back off. You really need to have the codes checked for an accurate diagnosis.

p0340 is the cam shaft sensor, this will cause it to cut off while driving, hardtime starting, p0351 is the ignition coil A primary/secondary curcuit mal function. p1391 is ignition system misfire, this could be plugs, wires, or coils. first of all have the cam sensor changed and it may correct the rest of the codes. when fixed turn light off with obd2 scanner. if you do not have one, then any auto parts store will erase the codes fo free of charge.

2002 jeep grand cherokee both seatbelt and airbag light came on at same time what causes this?


Hi, Do the lights go out after a few seconds or so? The checking system is doing its job. You may need to check the relays time after time for bad connections and corrosion on terminals. Good luck.

2005 jeep grand Cherokee airbag light comes on after starting the car for no reason


More than likely one of your crash sensors has corrosion or has moisture intrusion. Have light reset at any good shop or the dealer - note if light comes back on then you'll need to have your system looked at.

What ti do when the check engine light jeep grand cherokee 99 comes on? Also have the Air Bag light on too - is it a sensor issue and can i drive safely with the lights on?


The check engine light may not be a big deal if your Jeep is running OK. The bad news is that the airbag light has to be taken seriously.

It is normal for the airbag light to come on when you start your car and then go off in a few seconds, when the system is performing a self-test .When your airbag light stays on, it means that the circuit that controls airbag deployment has detected a problem. You need to have this looked at by a good mechanic, or preferably a Jeep dealer as soon as possible. It is possible that when there is a problem with the airbag circuitry that it can deploy without warning and can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

I do not recommend that you try to work on any airbag system yourself. The actuators contain small explosive charges that can seriously injure or even kill you. The system is designed to store an electrical charge and airbags can be set off even with the car battery removed. If you set your airbag off and are fortunate enough to not get hurt, replacing it will cause enough pain- $2000 is not unusual.

As far as the check engine light goes.... under the fusebox (near the drivers left knee area) you should see an electrical connector. You can go to any good auto parts store and ask to borrow their ECM analyzer- a handheld device that plugs into that connector and will allow you to read the computer codes that are turning on your check engine light. Just follow the instructions that come with the analyzer.

If you get an ambiguous reading like "factory code" chances are that it is fuel related and changing your brand or grade of gas will usually fix it. While you have the ECM analyzer connected, you can clear the codes and see if the light comes back.

I have a 2001 Grand Cherokee and during the winter, one certain brand of gas will cause the check engine light to come on in the winter. This is because federal and state clean air laws require that in winter months, the gas formulation be changed to help reduce emissions... and different brands actually DO have different formulations. Try a different brand gas for a while. Also, if your Jeep has the "straight six" engine, it is very important that you always run only regular grade- this engine (IMHO one of the best engines ever made!) does not like higher octane fuel and using mid-grade, or especially premium, will give you a check engine light, along with reduced gas mileage.

Airbag and seatbelt light stay on in 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The lights randomly came on for no reason.


Just recently, I inadvertently removed the yellow doohickey that holds the 2 x 10 amp fuses in the interior fuse bank of my 2002 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I checked the fuses and they were ok so I inserted the fuse holder back in.. Low and behold the seatbelt and airbag light came on and stayed on. After several quick fixes etc to get the lights to go out, I finally returned to the fuse holder and discovered that A. You need to squeeze in the tabs to get the fuse holder out and B. the fuse holder when being re-inserted will not automatically clip in... you have to squeeze the tabs again to press the fuse holder fully home. I started the old girl up again and no more lights.

AIR BAG LIGHT AND CHIME RINGS PERIODICALLY


I have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee Limited and Had similar problem. Found out that a wire/connection harness had gotten cut under PASSENGER seat.from seats moving back and forth. It's part of the airbag system, it tells airbag system if seatbelt is fastened and if occupant is in seat. Since the wire is broken, it can't report back to air back system and activates the light. try this, hope it helps.

Air bag light comes on intermdiately


it is the sensor located under the dashboard area. you can buy another one off the internet for 50.00. with instructions on how to remove the old one and then send it back for your deposit back. however, my light also comes on and off when the weather changes. i would ignore it unless it stays on for a few days. all it means is your airbag isnt working. i lived most my life without airbags.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Service engine light soon on


A loose gas cap will sometimes trigger the service light to come on.  Since this appears to have happened on multiple occasions I can assume that this is not the problem but may be associated with it.  The level of gas in the tank affects the amount of atmospheric pressure in the tank. There are multiple things that could set off the light, one being a loose or defective gas cap, and the other is a fuel vapor return valve.  I'm not sure of the exact type of fuel system you have so I cant give a more exact answer.  If you wanted to give something a shot before bringing it into the shop, you can simply replace the gas cap first, a very cheap try.

Airbag light comes on and shut odemeter and tack off. Then engine light come on and display reads no bu5. then all goes back to normal


You have a loose ground or a bad instrument panel connector, tracking down these kinds of issues is very expensive and time consuming. I must warn you that any thing you do that involves the airbag is very dangerous, and should not be attemped by anyone but the new car dealer with proper repair manuals and test equipment.
