Question about 1987 Nissan Sentra Wagon

2 Answers

Passive restraint questions...

I need some information about passive restraints on some vehicles. Can anyone tell me if airbags were standard on the following vehicles?

a) 1987 Nissan/Datsun Sentra - (I doubt it, but I cannot find it anywhere)

b) 1993 Chevy Sportvan G20 - (I also doubt this one)

c) 1996 Dodge Ram PU1500

I am almost positive that airbags were not standard on the first 2. But I could not find any information online. The last one seems probable, but again I could not find any info. Thanks.

My 2006 Kia Sedona air bag light is on. Do I need to take it to the dealer to fix? My auto knowledge is limited to oil changes, topping off liquids, and wiper changes.

No, it is not necessary to take your vehicle to the dealer for service and repair of your airbag/Passive Restraint system. Although I will say that if there are any parts required to repair the system, they will have to come from the dealer because the aftermarket simply does not handle parts for the restraint systems on almost all cars - especially a Kia. Check with your favorite shop. They may be willing to tackle this task if their scanners are equipped with the correct software to diagnose your restraint system. Some aftermarket shops will not mess with an airbag system at all. For instance, If you brought it to my shop I would handle it for you, but the shop down the street from me usually refers their airbag problems to my shop.

2004 Avalanche "Service Air Bag

First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I seriously doubt that your problem is being caused by a fuse. Your Passive Restraint System has a problem. This could be caused by a driver's airbag, a passenger airbag, a seat belt pre-tensioner, a contact assembly in the steering column, or any of the crash sensors. To find out what the problem is, you must scan your Passive Restraint (or Airbag) module to retrieve fault codes. The only thing I can tell you for sure without properly diagnosing your vehicle is that your airbag system will not function in the event of a crash. The system is designed to disable itself any time the warning light is illuminated. This is to prevent accidental deployment of the airbags due to a malfunction in the system.

My SRS light is on? what does this mean?

SRS is for "Supplemental Restraint System". This includes airbags and any other passive restraint device like a seat belt pre-tensioner. It is trying to tell you that your restraints will not function properly in the event of a collision.

Airbag light is on all the time

There are several malfunctions that will cause the Airbag light to come on. It could be a bad contact assembly in the steering column or it could be a bad connection in a seat belt pre-tensioner assembly or one of several other things. Diagnosis must begin with scanning your Passive Restraint Control Module and retrieving fault codes.

ATTENTION: The Airbag light remaining on while you are driving is a warning to let you know that your restraint system will not function correctly in the event of a collision. This is a serious safety issue and should not be ignored. Remember, you are only as safe as your safety equipment and the other driver's driving - regardless of how good your driving is.
