Need to turn the air bag light off

My car was in an accident before I bought it. The air bag light has been on ever since. I took it to get it inspected and they told me it wouldn't pass. I need a new clock spring. Needless to say I just spent a whole bunch of money fixing my car just for it to pass inspection and I don't have the money or energy to fix this clock spring. SO I figure if I just cut the air bag wire OR find the fuse that connects to it that it will turn the light off so it will pass..Please help Thank you.

The fuses box is under the dash on the driver side and may even be one under the hood as well.

How to fix acura integra 1997 sedan srs light?


Has the car ever been in an accident? If it has, there are repair shops that will replace the steering wheel cover and dash but not the air bags themselves because they are expensive. See if there are air bags first, then check out the seatbelt pretension devices to see if they have deployed as well. 5_25_2014_5_34_26_pm.jpg

I recently purchased a 1995 Mazda Miata for restoration and PERSONAL use. It has a rebuilt title and I knew that when I bought it. The air bags were deployed in an accident @ 1000 miles..it now has 23000...


the easiest thing to do is just remove the airbag waring light, if u remove any component then th light is turned on by default, this means if u remove the airbag control module the light goes on, any crash sensor is altered or removed the light is on, so removing the bulb is by far the cheapest and easiest way to go, but as far as the airbag being a vital safety feature I 100% disagree with u, I have been in the bushiness 45 years now, and since Airbags were introduced people walk away from accidents that killed them just years before, this especially true on small cars like the MX3, if the cost to restore the system puts u off there are complete systems avail in the used auto part market. here is a link to one such site.

There are no ways to turn off the air bag light except you replace the faulty air bag.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

Service air bag light is displayed on the dic


A service air bag light means that the bag may not deploy in case of an accident so you need to take it back to the dealer and have it repaired. Check your warranty, air bags and seat belts sometimes have a longer warranty than the rest of the car.

Chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"


First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

Something is wrong with the SRS. This is not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional for repair. They will reset the light after repairing it. Otherwise the air bag may not deploy in an accident or may deploy at any moment. Don't take the risk. Get this fixed

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.
