Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My 2007 Solara convertible's airbag light came on a couple of weeks ago at 67,000 mi for unknown reason. Sometimes it goes off, but mostly stays on. Dealer says codes for seat sensor and airbag came up in diagnostic testing and both need to be replaced for $1000. I have read reviews of such problems being corrected and then reoccuring. What should the warranty be for this fix? Why would both sensors go out at the same time?

SOURCE: code c1277 (steering angle sensor)

this vehicle uses a steering control module and the antilock control module. Both modules get a signal from the steering angle sensor. We found that the steering module didnot show a steering sensor code but the ABS module did show the code.
after checking that the wiring was intact and with good continuity, it was determined that the fault lies in the ABS module.
A new ABS module and configuration confirmed the diagnosis. It's fixed!

Sounds like your mechanic installed something per your request. Unfortunately, you have to order the specific part for your vehicle or the light will stay on because the vehicle computer is not detecting a secong airbag.

SOURCE: 2007 Chevy Cobalt with p0128 and "---" temp reading

The P0218 Code is primarily intended to indicate a faulty thermostat.
Have the thermostat replaced

Other possible causes that could trigger this code would be:
Low engine coolant level
faulty cooling fan
faulty coolant temperature sensor
faulty intake air temperature sensor

Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

They're working in Airbag-Simulators and Occupancy Sensor-Simulators.

The airbag light on our 97 bmw came on a couple days ago and won't go out


1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

My 2007 Elantra's airbag light stays on. The dealers says it's not part of the recall. How do I know that is correct?


Whether it is covered or not goes By the fault code that is present whenever the SRS system warning light is turned on. Airbags save lives, fix it and fight over who pays later. Keep the all the paper work and appeal to Hyundai to help pay the bill to fix it.

I bought Toyoto Camry 2008 in UAE one month ago. After one week whenever I switch ignition on the Air Bag Indication mostly remains on. Sometimes, disappears for few minutes and then lights up again and...


The air bag light on then off for a while,while driving it comes on and stay on for a while this means the system has detected a problem in the airbag system and it is warning you that if you get in a accident the air bag may not deploy. My hope is that youll never need it and youll never be a vehicle when it goes off.

My airbag light stays on and we haven't had an accident. It just came on and stays on. What do I do?


It will need to be diagnosed since you have a couple of airbags and a few connectors and a few computers which can cause this light to come on.

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.

Check engine light


RE: Check Engine Light

The check engine light may come on for several reasons
.
It is not necessary to worry as it may be as simple as putting the gas cap on without fully clicking it shut!. If this is the case it will go away by itself in about a week at most!

You can take your car to an auto parts store to have them run a diagnostic (Some will do this for free).

If your car is running fine, re-tighten the gas cap, give it a week or have it diagnosed if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

The airbag light came on and stayed on for no reason.


I have the same issue (which comes and goes often).
It is caused by a loose wire connection, used for the drivers side airbag located in the seat.. The connector for mine is located under the front drivers seat. There are a couple of connectors that are connected to a bar under the front of the seat. I don't recall which one is used for the Airbag sensor.
