It is underneath the center utility tray and yes it has to be replaced if air bags deployed.You should be getting a air bag light flashing a code 19. One flash a pause the nine flashes. You may have other codes also,if you reply back with what they are we can tell you what to look for.

Why didn't Nissan airbag deploy?


Speed....point of impact.....all make a difference on when an airbag deploys it is possible to have an accident and the airbag will not deploy the sensors have to register an impact of certain size and weight to deploy .....in older cars you are probably glad they did not deploy because they often blacked eyes broke noses and caused Neck injury by the amount of force they deployed at..

2013 Volkswagen Beetle airbags did not deploy in my accident


The airbag technology uses many factors when deploying. If it doesn't see the need, they won't pop out at you possibly injuring you more than the small accident. When I was clipped on my rear corner and spun me around in the intersection, they didn't pop. But a head first hit popped them. The primary sensor is behind the front bumper

Airbag light reset sx4


There is a manufacturer's recall on this if it's caused by a failure in the front passenger weight detection system.

The system has a minimum weight required in the front passenger seat for the airbag to deploy in an accident (if no one is in the front passenger seat during an accident, the airbag does NOT deploy). If the system fails and the car cannot determine if someone is in the front passenger seat, the light illuminates and in an accident the passenger airbag WILL deploy, even if there's no one in that seat.

The purpose of the system is to prevent airbag deployment for a lightweight child in the front seat. The fix is to replace the seat weight sensor mat...free if it's the recall item.

My air bag light stays on on my 2004 sonata, this just started recently. Never have been in an accident. what or how can i turn it off. No air bags were deployed.


THE PROBLEM IS YOUR AIRBAG MODULE (computer) it is pretty expensive to fix since it needs to be replaced. Around $500 prolly more unless you know someone. Airbags won't go off randomly. But they prolly won't work when they are supposed to.

Hi The airgag system light stays on after ignition


The computer detected something wrong with the airbag system, and it's likely that the airbags will NOT deploy if you are in an accident. It could be a simple disconnected wire somewhere, or a bad sensor; not expensive to repair but you have to know exactly what to do to repair it, or you could set off the airbag instead.

Sorry, this is NOT a do-it-yourself project. Take this to your dealer or other trusted mechanic and get it repaired by a professional. If you set off the airbag trying to repair it yourself, you will cause about $2000 to $5000 (US) damage to the vehicle. And obviously, NOT having the airbag deploy in an accident when it should, could cause serious injury or death, even if you are wearing your seatbelts. (You DO wear your seltbelts, don't you?)

2002 jetta tdi airbags problems


It is not supposed to be possible for the airbags to deploy when the car isnt moving. Sounds like the car had a defective airbag system, Just be grateful it never blew up while you were behind the wheel. If it were me I would contact VW and see if they are willing to help you. And if you decide to replace the airbags, I would fight like crazy with the insurance company to have every aspect of the airbag system replaced(all sensors and computers associated with it). If you are in America, your state has an attorney generals office, If no one is willing to work with you, A friendly and concise letter to the attorney general usually straightens everyone up.

The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.

I got into accident, airbags deployed, dont want new airbags, but front blinkers dont work, how do i fix?


If this was a reportable accident, your insurance company should take care of the air bag and consequencial damages. Bypassing safety devices as such creates greater risk of severe injury because the rest of the vehicle is designed with all systems functional. Ck w/ insurance co.
