As long as the light is on, the air bag will not deploy in a crash.

The light is on because a problem has been detected, and the pcm will have set a trouble code for it. So you should have a scan done of the pcm to retrieve the code, and go from there. Autozone or other national chains do scans for free.

There are no ways to turn off the air bag light except you replace the faulty air bag.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

2002 Lincoln ls air bag light came on 63000 miles someone told me it has to be reset.......


If the air bag light is on there is a problem with the air bag. The light means the air bags will not deploy in an accident. Only a qualified tech should work on air bags.

Air bag light blinking


get this checked out asap. This indicates the air bag system has a problem, and may not deploy in the event of an accident. Did you just purchase the car w/ this problem, or have u had it a while? I ask, because if u purchased it w/ the blinking light, it could indicate the car was in an accident, the air bag deployed, and it wasn't replaced when repairs were made. That's the worse case scenario, get it checked, hopefully it's something not that serious. Let me know how u make out Curt

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.

AIR BAG LIGHT IS ON


I hope for your sake that it is some external electrical hiccough since they are extremely costly to replace. The fact it didn't deploy however is disturbing.

I suggest you have the stored error code read out with a code scanner; the theft of these things has exploded and it is not uncommon to find used vehicles sold with bags missing.
Please don't try to find this problem yourself; the controls for the bags is fussy and it is not unknown to have them activate by accident while trying to service related areas.
