Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
Last week I noticed that the airbag started flashing. Does anyone know what this might mean, whether its an easy job I can fix myself or am I going to have to take it somewhere to get it fixed properly. Cheers
There are sensors in the seats of some vehicles if these go bad it will cause this if this is the problem it can be a bit costly so i would call a toyota dealer ask for service department and ask if some one could give you possible simptoms ont your model vehicle

A: When the airbag is lit, the system is inactive. Should you get in a front end crash, the airbag/s will not deploy leaving you unprotected. I would call the dealer and ask them to run your vehicle's VIN through their system. It could be that there was a recall for the safety restraint system on your car in which case the repair will be free of charge to you. If there are no recalls and no warranty coverage for safety restraint systems, (sometimes there is extended coverage on such systems) then take it to a qualified shop if you're more comfortable with that. Just make sure before you go to the shop that they have the scan tool and software to tap into the safety restraint module for diagnostics. Usually a lit airbag can be attributed to faulty wiring, crash sensor behind the front bumper, bad connection between the airbag and lower part of the steering column, or a faulty airbag module. A qualified shop should be able to track this down for you. If you're not sure where to go to find such a shop, call AAA and ask them for a AAA Certified Repair Facility in your area
