    OK this is for a 2001 toyota corolla le model ,I had to get the main seat belt module reset which was $50 , it is on the very botonm of the front console where you radio is , you have to look hard for it , also you have to replace the seat belt tensioners ,Which I am looking into now , there is only also module for them it is under the steering wheel and if it is not burnt it is still good , I am looking for the seat belts now , do NOT install tht module until you replace those belts or you light will stay on .or your bags will not work if you are in an accident ,. I will let you all know how I make out after I find the belts ,does anyone have a good set , .

    I'm not sure your local dealer/body shop should be able to tell you.

    Check the fuses with the headlights ON

  • TJ May 11, 2010

    I assume you are replacing them because they were deployed. The module for the steering wheel is in the wheel under the horn assembly on most vehicles. As far as the passenger side I'm not sure. The main deployment module should be mounted somewhere in the area of the front radiator support behind the bumper. Once the bags are replaced the computer should reset to acknowledge the repaired system. Check fuses with a 12 volt test light.

    the headlight fuse in the the relay box behind the battery on the driverside , turn the cover upside down and it will tell which fuse and relay is which , I never really heard of a fuse going unless there is a short make sure you are getting power to the headlight plug 2 should get power and the 3rd is a ground (black) no power fuse ,power it is the bulb hope this helps

If you are replacing the air bags, you should replace the front left and right crash sensors, the spiral cable under the steering wheel, AND the center air bag sensor, which is in front of the console. If your car has seat-belt pretensioners and force limiters, you may have to replace them also. You will know this if the seat belts are "locked up". If you do not replace all of the parts, you may get a air-bag code, and the air bags may not deploy next time.

On a 2001 Jaguar S-Type What does it mean when you see air bag light on while driving

It means that the air bag diagnostic module has registered a problem in the system...either a bad impact sensor, bad air bag module, bad clock spring, bad pre tentioner....something in the system is not as it should be. You need to have the car hooked up to a diagnostic computer that can talk to the air bag processor to find out what the problem is.

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset

Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

I had a fender bender that pushed in front bumper and blew both air bags and cruise control. i have had bumper/frame repaired and i need to know where/how many sensore need to be replaced when i replace...

you should only have to place the front crash sensor and both air bags and you may have to replace the clock spring behind the steering wheel it usually breaks after an impact i would recommend you have a qualified technician do this work

1998 Toy Corolla Air Bag Light keeps flashing

take it to another dealer, in most cases its just a poor connection, poor contact in one of the pin connectors, air bag wiring is very sensative,one poor pin connection does not allways mean that the harness needs to be replaced, it sounds like they dont want to take the time to pinpoint the problem.
