SOURCE: air bag

If the air bag light is blinking count the blinks for the code. Example.. If the air bag light flashes once and then a short pause and then two blinks you would have a code 12. and so on. If it just stays on you will need to take it into a repair shop and get it checked. My best guess without looking at it would be that the clockspring is not working properly. Most of the time when the clockspring goes out other things stop working like the horn or cruise control or something that is on the steering wheel. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Air bag light always on

There is a fault in the Restraint/Air bag system , this is something that you cannot do alone you will have to take it to the Dealer or a Mechanic that has the proper diagnostic software for the vehicle to have the code cleared or determine why the light is on.

SOURCE: air bag sensors light on

There may not be a sensor in that very location where the damage is but it may have been enough to trigger at least one sensor. The thing to do would have a shop hook up a scanner and see why the light is on instead of replacing sensors. Usually it takes more force to trigger a sensor inside the car than it does to trigger and outside sensor. And at least two sensors need to trigger before an airbag is deployed.

Oil light flashing on and off and air bag light on what is the problem ?


Oil light flashing means you oil is low,and should be checked out soon as possible...as far as the airbag it could just be a bad sensor,Kia Optimas are bad about the air bag light coming on,but just to be on the safe side you could get it looked at.

The "Air Bag" light is on, mechanic didn't know what to do. The manual does not give any suggestion on problem plus I'm not sure which air bag, driver or passenger?


check your owners manuel under air bag , i dont have any info on your 05 optima , but most owners manuels tell you what if this happens and the most liklley causes . you might also look up the blue book value before you think about pouring any large amounts of money into your vehicle shoul a air bag need replacing. air bags are exspensive probley more then the car is worth . my 03 rio is woth $500 and my 04 spectra is worth $800.

Where is the air bag module. the air bag does not turn off?


Are you stating that the airbag light does not turn off. Fooling with this system can get you killed. Have codes run by a qualified technician.
