2004 Suzuki xl7 airbag light wont go out and the clock

For about 2 months now my airbag light is staying on and at the same time the clock started to blink and now we cannot set any time. Then just today the abs brake light came on and I messed witht he caps to make sure that everything was okay and when I started it again it went off. I would really appreciate any help that anyone can give.

    I was Recently in a wreck and was not wearing my seat belts the dealership told me that was how the insurance company knows if you were wearing your seat belts because the air bags wont deploy

    My air bag light is on and the clock is blinking on my 2004 Suzuki XL7. Since it happened one week after I purchased it (March, 2009), I had it diagnosed (thinking the extended warranty I bought would cover it). The air bag sensor under the passenger seat is faulty and the clock blinks as an extra warning mechanism in case you can't see the big bright red light on the dash AIR BAG. I looked and there have been no recalls on this and the service dept just called me to tell me that my 2-yr extended warranty does not cover airbags - nice. The service manager also told me the airbag won't just randomly deploy, but that it may not go off in case of a collision.

    I have the same problem.  I have a 2004 Suzuki XL7.  The airbag light is on and the clock flashes.  Has anybody has this problem repaired?  If so, what did they do and how much did it cost?  The dealership tells me that it is $80 just to look at it.

Someone or something heavy was on the Passenger seat. The wire harness under that seat has become loose or disconnected. Completely unplug and clean treminals and reconnect. SOLVED

    I unplugged the wiring harness and cleaned the terminals---this still didn't do the trick.

Most of the time when the air bag light stays on it means there is a problem in the system and the air bag will not deploy in an accident. I would leave any repair to a professional. If you live up north snow and ice deposits on the inside of the wheels can cause the ABS light to come on sometimes. If it comes on and stays on it means the computer senses a problem and has shut the system off until it is repaired. sorry, I have no idea about the clock.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car

{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

Air bag light on no horn 2002 suzuki xl7

Most vehicles have a "clock spring" behind the horn button area on the steering wheel. The clock spring has nothing to do with clocks and inst really a spring. It's a flat coil of wiring that is would around in a circle and connected to a stationary item in the middle of the steering column. The outer end of the coil is allowed to move around (coil and uncoil) as the steering wheel is turned. The clock spring typically supplies power to the horn and to the airbag. This is a relatively simple fix, but unless you have mechanical experience, this is a repair I would leave to a mechanic. Pulling the steering wheel and the airbag can possibly lead to airbag deployment and injure or kill you.

My 2004 Honda Accord LX dashbooard airbag light comes on and stays on sometimes

When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

Air bag light is blinking

Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

Suzuki 2004 XL7 airbag light on and clock flashes

My suggestion is to take the vehicle to the franchised Dealer where they will have the proper test equipment to identify the fault. I understand your concern about keeping the costs down and so what I’d do is telephone at least two Suzuki Dealers and ask them for a cost to diagnose the problem – you might wish to say to them that you have a fixed budget of say $100. At least this way you can be told what the problem is and what the rectification cost is likely to be. At that point you can choose to either proceed with the work or not. Hope this helps, Scottech
