Dear Dave:

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, Airbag,ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems. If the Airbag light is on all the time when you are driving that means the computer has found a problem, and the airbag might not go off in an accident until you get it repaired. This is a job for a professional.

Check airbag lite in on. shows a person with a bubble in front. is vehicle safe to drive or will it deploy while I am driving?


The check airbag light means that the vehicle's computer has detected a likelihood that the airbag will NOT deploy in an accident as designed.
This means there is virtually no chance it will inflate for no reason at all.

Lost power to turn sig airbag light and heater control.I pluged trailer lightes in to my tow package


The trailer might have a bad ground. My camper does the same thing to my truck. Try directly connecting the trailer ground to the frame of your vehicle. This might solve the problem as it did for me.

1996 Dodge Intrepid: Could someone tell me where the engine ground strap goes to and from. I know mine is broken. Could this be the reason I suspect a problem with BCM? Airbag lite on and off, lose


The earth strap goes from any solid mount on the engine to any solid mount on the chassis. I dont know if this will help solve all of your problems but it certainly wont do any harm.

Airbag lite


The airbag system is not a diy repair. Have a qualified mechanic check codes and diagnose.
