Airbag light comes on intermittently for 2002 Grand Caravan

We have a 2002 Grand Caravan and the airbag light started to come on intermittently. We took it to the dealer and they said that the seat belt tensioner, on the passanger side, needed to be replaced.
Does this make sense or could it be something else?

    I had the same issue with my 2002 Caravan SE. But now the light stays on all the time. I was told that it is in the seatbelt connector by the driver's seat.

Makes sense if that is what code was stored in the Occupant Restraint Module. There are sensors in the seatbelts now.

Airbag light


You can unhook your battery for 15min. which should reset your airbag light. If it keeps coming on it is very possible it is the airbag clock spring which is located in the steering column causing the airbag light to come on. These are known to go out and cause the light to come on. The steering wheel has to be removed with a steering wheel puller to replace this part. This repair should be performed by a qualified mechanic. I had the same problem with my 05 Grand Caravan and the clock spring fixed the problem.

I ordered the clockspring on ebay it was $30 buy it now, brand new. This was after the airbag light being on solid for about a week. Then one day it began to come and go intermittently. Then it went off and stayed off about a week.. The clockspring I ordered arrived and I set it aside to see whether the light would come back on. Well, today it did and it was on solid for a 100 miles of driving. I got home and disconnected the battery for about 5 minutes and reconnected. Light stayed on. So I pulled the steering wheel and changed the clockspring and the light has gone off and stayed off so far. I will post back in a few weeks if it stays OFF so others may find this helpful for future reference.

Airbag Light Stays On on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport


Looks like a bad clock spring.Don't try to make this repair unless you know what you're doing!! If the airbag blows during the process,let's just say it'll ruin your day & probably the next week. I'm a chrysler master tech,so heed my warning please. I'd tell ya how to do it but I'll get sued if you get hurt.

Cruise and horn doesnt work 2002 dodge grand caravan


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

The airbag light comes on and stays on for about 20 seconds while driving. Does this intermittantly. Dodge grand carvan sport 2001 Whats it trying to tell me?


More than likely the clock spring (spiral connection) will need to be replaced, but you need to have it scanned for codes to verify. It can be several other things as well but most of the time it's the clock spring. Don't put it off too long, when the light is on the airbag system is dissabled.

this is telling u that a fault has been detected in the airbag circuit by the airbag diagnostic monitor module (system is disabled when light is on), the most common cause is the rotating ribbon contact called the clock-spring contact has a break in it's circuit to the airbag on the steering wheel. To replace this you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel. Follow factory protocol for disarming airbag or serious injury can result from unwanted deployment of the airbag

Srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix


If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.

1997 Caravan Airbag like comes on intermittently.


ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.

Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down
