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.

there is no other option...as long as the light is on there is a chance the airbag will either not work in an accident or it may deploy without warning. how many miles do you have on the vehicle??? there is a chance if you contact chrysler customer relations they may assist in the repairs.

Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls & Defects Database Transport Canada Recall # 2007169 Recall Date:  2007/05/30 Notification Type:  Recalls Audit System:  Airbag Manufacturer Recall Number:  G09 Units Affected:  question.gif 51,000 Category: Minivan Recall Details: On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

SOURCE: 1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

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.

How do I fix the Airbag light?


Have your local garage scan for codes and diagnose the problem. Quite often the airbag light comes on because of a malfunction in one of your seat belt buckles.

2004 Ranger XL airbag light on dashboard wont go off. how do I get this off


It must be a safety test, because the airbag has nothing to due with emissions. The proper way to make the light go out is have the air bag or SRS system repaired by a qualified service center.

Airbag lights comes on and dont go off


Sadly, you will need a scan tool for this reset. On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the ...scanlist.aspx page listed below.

The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis (and not the one at Auto Zone---it needs to be airbag system specific, like a good body shop or the dealer). Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong! Although it's a pay site ($14.95/day), it's a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.

Audi 2005 tt airbag light is on


You will need a scan tool to diagnose your airbag problem (and not the one at Auto Zone---dealer or body shop only). Once you have the code, check out this website. It's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag systems, airbag lights and resetting the system. It shows you the location of the components and the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights after a deployment. Not all vehicles need everything replaced. Although it's a pay site, it certainly is worth the money ($14.95 for 1 day full access) http://www.airbagsolutions.com/
http://www.airbagsolutions.com/scanlist.aspx
This is quite a complete website with pictures, descriptions and factory fault code charts as well as a working demo that shows just how easy these repairs can be.

2006 Ford fusion Airbag light came on driving down the highway. Called dealer and they said to replace battry. Replaced battery. Wrench light came on,check engine light came on and the airbag light came...


I would find it hard to believe a dealer would give
out ANY info.
They want all the business and nothing going to
any local repair shops
I NEVER recommend going to any dealer,you
can if you want to spend some extra money for
no apparent reason

You have an OBD2 System Malfunction
Specifically theSRS System (airbag,etc)
You may also have a second system problem

There is no quessing to be done here and no
one can give answers
Your vehicle,as with ANY dash light that comes on
has to be diagnosed for codes,a problem found
a solution come up with and the issues repaired.

Oldsmobile Aurora 2002 3.5 - drove over speed bump - airbag problem showed up on DIC system, also airbag rediness light came on


suspect you activated one of the air bag sensors. it takes activation of two of three sensors to blow off the airbag. have the airbag system scanned to see the sensors as to which one is causing the problem. there is also a chance that a loose connecter may have come off an airbag sensor from the jarring of the bump. either way you will need to get scanned to find out whats going on.

Airbag indicator light


The most common cause of an airbag light that I've found is that one of the underseat airbag connectors was pulled slightly apart when the seat was put too far back. This strains the connection and opens the connector momentarily, just enough to trip the light. Your airbags are still fully functional - the light is a warning that there was an open connector at one time.

You don't have to go to a dealer if you have a laptop computer. You need the diagnostic software that Audi uses (called VagCom). You can download it legally and free from www.ross-tech.com, and you'll need a $20 OBDII interface cable for hooking the car up to the computer (available on eBay). With this, you can scan the car and see which airbag tripped the fault light.

If it's an underseat bag, look under the front of the seat - you'll see harness connections facing you. The yellow one is the airbag connector. Use small zip-ties and zip it tightly together (don't damage the wires!). Afterward, use VagCom to turn off the light, and you should be good to go.

Or you can go to a dealer and have them take three minutes to turn it off...and charge you an hour's labor. Your call:)

Airbag light


2001 toyota sequoia
airbag light on while driving,was told by dealer not to worry about deployment when driving.
costed 107.00 for diagnostic then another 180.00 for labor just to tell me the driverside SRS bag needs to be replaced and it would cost 1,160.00 to fix.
left dealer mad as hell, after paying them 285.00 of my hard earned money.
