Reset airbag light


Hey Earl, what's going on ? The air bag module is usually under the passenger seat or the center console ! The only way to turn off the light is with a up grade scan tool , not code reader. An the light is on for a reason , problem with the system ! If you don't know about this don't mess with it , you could deploy an air bag !
The AIR BAG indicator, located on the instrument panel cluster (IPC) is used to notify the driver of SIR system malfunctions and to verify that the SDM is communicating with the IPC. When the ignition is turned ON, the SDM is supplied with ignition 1 voltage and requests the IPC to flash the AIR BAG indicator 7 times. While flashing the indicator, the SDM conducts test on all SIR system components and circuits. If no malfunctions are detected the SDM will communicate with the IPC through the class 2 serial data circuit and request the IPC to turn the AIR BAG indicator OFF. The SDM provides continuous monitoring of the air bag circuits by conducting a sequence of checks. If a malfunction is detected the SDM will store a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) and request the IPC to turn the AIR BAG indicator ON. The presence of a SIR system malfunction could result in non-deployment of the air bags. The AIR BAG indicator will remain ON until the malfunction has been repaired.

Where s the air bag light fuse


Bottom line is you can't.
Due to the safety factor, I don't know of a way to turn the light off without disconnecting the entire system.
When work is done on the steering wheel the fuse is removed that turns the light on.
You may have to get a shop manual to find the connectors to disconnect the air bag module.
The air bag module which is connected to the body computer requires a different kind of scanner than the engine computer to read it for codes.

What does SRS lit up on the dashboard mean. 1995 accord wagon.


the SRS stands for Supplemental Restraint System. Most people call it the air bags but the SRS system includes all of the sensors and control units for air bags, seat belt pre-tensioners and passenger detection systems on cars that are equiped with themeach time you start the car up the SRS control unit will do a self-test of the system to make sure all of the sensors are working properly. The SRS light will stay on while that test is conducted. If all is well and everything passes the on-board test the light will go out in about 7 seconds. If something is wrong the light will stay on.whenever a failure is detected for any reason,the SRS light is turned on and the system is shut off. The air bags will not be deployed when the SRS light is on.They call it a Supplemental Restraint System because your seat belts are your primary restraint system.

I have nissan altima 2007 the air bags light is flashing i need turn off how ican do


If the air bag light is flashing- that means there is problem with your SRS air bag system. It stored a code in the computer and wont turn off untill the problem is fixed or cleared manualy with a scan tool- note if you choose to clear the code and turn off the light with a scan tool- if the problem with the system is still there the computer in your car will notice it and store another code and the light will come right back on. also Note that if the air bag light or SRS light is on while driving that system is shut down and your air bags WILL NOT go off if you get into an accident. (the same rules apply if your ABS- anti lock brake light is on- the ABS system will not work) the most common problem with the Altimas and air bag codes are the clock spring assembly located behind your steering wheel- (not the air bag itself on the steering wheel) but there is a round thing that turns with a wire connected to it. you have to remove the steering wheel to service. Best bet - go somewhere that has a scan tool and read what code the computer stored. It will tell you what part of the system has the problem.

Ford f-150 4x4 2006 air bag light remains on


Yes, you are correct. The air bag warning light is indicating a malfunction of the air bag system has been detected by the air bag control module. The problem could be anything from a sensor defect to a wiring issue.
You can take the truck to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your truck for trouble codes. They will scan the truck at no charge and report the trouble codes that are present. Write the codes down and respond back, we can begin to diagnose the issue.
