Question about 2003 Renault Sportwagon

Automatic lights don't come on and air bag light

A couple of weeks ago, my SERV light and air bag light came on. It kept going on and off and then stayed on. I took it in for a safety check and now the lights don't turn on automatically anymore - I have to do it manually. Is it worth taking it back to the garage and asking them to sort it or can I do it myself.
It's going in on Wednesday to get all the problems from the safety check sorted (new cam belt and ARB thingys) I just don't want this costing me a fortune as it's already costing me £250 for the cam belt and ARB things (+VAT and labour)
It seems like the air bag light is a common problem but was hoping I don't need a new sensor as it worked fine before and the wipers seem to be working ok too.

For the lights to work when the engine is off turn them on and off a couple of times and then you should hear a beep and that will mean the automatic lights are activated and you do the same to deactivate it.

plus if you hold the door locking button on the centre console for a few seconds it should beep and it will lock the doors automatically from the outside when you set off and go past 5mph you can turn this off by doing the same also

1997 honda civic 1.6L DX SRS Air Bag light stuck on after drove throo heavy rain!

A code reader may not access the body computer, but a professional scanner should. You may be able to research the air bag system online and find a way to make the light flash the codes.
I would guess after reading your description one of the front crash sensors got water in the connector and the sensor has failed.

2003 Chrysler Towne and Country. Air Bag Light in Dash Console comes on and off while driving. It started about a week ago. Any Ideas on what could be the issue?

You should start by retrieving any codes. If you don't have any way to do that you can have it done by a parts store like Autozone. A code should give you a clue as to where to look for the problem.

Check light on airbag light on low brake performance, pad just replaced 2 weeks ago What can be the problem, please? Venu

to determine the reason for the check engine light, bring your vehicle to a local autozone to have it scanned for this (its free). air bag light indicates air bag system malf, possible faulty impact sensors. As for the brakes, I recommend bringing back to the shop where they performed the repair. They need to re-bleed the system!!

Check engine light , check suspension

My towncar is doing the same. It actually started about 6 months ago with the fuel light, which turned out to be no problem, just some air in the line. My air bags did go out last week, so it looks like I have a low rider right now:) I'm in the process of converting from air bags to springs. I had the back airbags replaced but then the dang compressor went out and I don't have the money to replace that. The check air suspension light will stay on right before you have to replace the airbags. Turn your car off then on and if it takes a little while for the light to come back on you have a few weeks to go before it goes out completely. Oh and it is a real easy fix. Its gonna cost about 200 bucks for each airbag, but if you convert it to spring it will cost about 150 in parts.
