Air bag warning light comes on and stays on. when I start the car the airbag light flashes once and then stays lit.


Hello, This can be something that really needs attention. The warning can tell you that there is a bad Impact sensor on the front bumper or that the Chemicals or contacts in one of your Airbags is not correct.

You really don't want the thing triggering your bags by accident or having a bag that will not inflate. There should be a Diagnostic plug a scanner can read. It may be something any Bump shop can attend to if you want to avoid a Dealer.

My air bag light stays on all the time I did have some work done on my front bumper would this cause it will it cause any harm or does it mean the air bag is not fuctioning


See if they left the front sensor unplugged

Iook so disconnect the battery,wait a few minuites
then connect it,the SRS Light should go out

Or take it back to whom ever worked on it

The system may be turned off,don't know,
but I would want to know it was working

The Supplemental Air Bag Restraint System consists of two basic sub-systems:
  • Driver side air bag module (043B13) and passenger side air bag module (044A74).
  • Electrical system, including RH primary crash front air bag sensor and bracket (14B004) , LH primary crash front air bag sensor and bracket (14B005) , LH kick panel safing rear air bag sensor and bracket (14B007) and air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) .
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
13 Air Bag or Primary Crash Sensor Circuit Shorted to Ground
  • Inspect air bag sliding contact wiring in steering wheel , driver side air bag module , and passenger side air bag module for damaged, chafed or pinched wires.

    1997 Escort Sdn., airbag light flashes 4 times


    Pinpoint Test R: Diagnostic Trouble Code 44 — RH Radiator Primary Crash Front Air Bag Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly Normal Operation
    NOTE: Circuit 618 (BL/W) is grounded to the side of the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor case, and the case is grounded through the bracket to the vehicle at its mounting point.
    The air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) measures the resistance between pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) and pin 3 (circuit 57M [BK]), the air bag diagnostic monitor reference ground. If the air bag diagnostic monitor measures a difference of more than 2.0 ohms between pin 20 and pin 3, it will flash diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 44.
    Possible Causes
    High resistance on pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) to ground can be caused by:
    • A poor connection due to loose mounting, dirt, or corrosion at the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor bracket mounting location.
    • An open or damaged wire in circuit 618 (BL/W) from pin 20 of the air bag diagnostic monitor connector to the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor connector.
    • An open circuit inside the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor.

    Airbag light on. flashing 5 times 2 times then stays on


    I think you have a false code stored due to your work. clear the code and you should be ok.
    If the air bag indicator does not illuminate or the indicator stays on or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
    Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) may not be displayed for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position. This is the amount of time the air bag diagnostic monitor requires to perform all tests and verify system faults.
    Each DTC (a series of flashes and pauses of the air bag indicator):
    • Represents a two-digit number.
    • Is always displayed at least twice.
    If the diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the air bag system, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be written to the diagnostic monitor's Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM). This DTC will then cause the lamp to flash a lamp fault code (LFC) on the air bag warning lamp and can be retrieved with the New Generation STAR (NGS) tester. After servicing the DTC may then be cleared from the NVRAM.
    If a system fault is present and the air bag indicator is malfunctioning, an audible tone will be heard. The tone is a series of five sets of five beeps. If the tone is heard, the air bag system needs attention.
    If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor will attempt to remove deployment power by turning on a solid state switch to blow the 10A battery fuse.

    If the 10A battery fuse has successfully been blown by the air bag diagnostic monitor, the air bag diagnostic monitor will not attempt to blow it again until the proper fault has been repaired and cleared (refer to Diagnostic Instructions). The air bag diagnostic monitor will store both the unwanted deployment diagnostic trouble code and the loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code. The loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code is the highest priority.
    If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor has an internal fuse that that will blow (open) automatically. This removes all power to the air bag deployment circuit.
    DTCs are prioritized numerically. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed first. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
    The air bag diagnostic monitor includes an internal backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bag in the event the battery (10655) or battery cables are damaged in a collision before safing and air bag sensors close. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the positive battery cable is disconnected.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    Once a DTC is logged into the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, it will stay in memory until 80 key cycles have been recorded or until the NGS is used to erase the DTCs. Once 256 key cycles have been recorded since the concern was last detected, the DTC will automatically be removed from memory.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Active Command Modes
    This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag system, indicator and tone. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator and the tone are simultaneously activated for approximately four seconds. Both devices are automatically deactivated.

    Look for water entry into the front crash sensors behind the front bumper. They have bright yellow connectors.

    Air bag Indicator flashed and than stays on


    If the only code 52 is flashing then system is ok and just needs to be cleared.Look behind the glove box and find the gray 2 wire connector.It will be on the left side behind the glove box and follow the proceedure below. Once a fault has been serviced, the associated diagnostic trouble code may be cleared from NVM. Only diagnostic trouble codes that the air bag diagnostic monitor sees as repaired or intermittent may be cleared (diagnostic trouble codes 52 and above). In no circumstances can hard fault conditions (diagnostic trouble codes 45 and below) be cleared.
    1. Follow the diagnostic procedures as outlined to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator.
    1. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.
    1. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ±two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.
    1. Locate the Diagnostic Service Connector located underneath the glove compartment containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).
    1. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground.
    1. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).
    1. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). Diagnostic trouble code is now cleared from NVM. Next highest priority diagnostic trouble code stored in NVM (if one exists) will begin flashing

    Air bag light stays on


    I just got a letter in the mail from Pontiac saying that if the air bag light is staying on then the air bag sensor, which is on the passenger side, may be bad.If any water has touched the sensor,that may be the cause of the light to be on.They also said that if it's on than your air bag can deploy at any time.Even if you haven't gotten into an acccident.I have the same problem and I am looking into the sensor for the air bag.You should do the same.Hope this helps you.
