Question about 1995 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

Air bag light flashing (red)

Is this because I need to get the air bag replaced or something simple like a fuse? There hasn't been a wreck or anything to cause it to deploy.

Airbags dont need to be replaced. There is an issue with the electrical that connects to the airbags. This is not a DIY project because if you connect the wrong wires it could cause the bags to deploy and you could get seriously hurt - or cost $3,000 if your lucky to replace the bags

Changed air bags in 2006 dodge charger does air bag light in dash go out on its own or does it need scanned

Airbag system self tests every time you start it up. If light is still flashing or on after start, then you have other problems. If it was in a wreck, you will probably have to change air bag control module, pretensioners.....

Air bag light flashing on 1999 ford ranger

well, if your air bag light is flashing then your system is already disabled. You have no worries about it deploying on you or anything, it just means that there is a problem that needs to be resolved before the system will activate again and work. Just like a check engine light, the air bag computer will have a stored code that can be read with a code reader, not like the ones you can use at a parts store though. You need to have your codes read and that will tell you where the problem is.

The red light indicates that you are having a problem with your SRS systems. Could be something as simple as a loose or coroded connection. Either way you should take it to the appropriate dealer and have them inspect it for you.

I was in a wreck with my 1999 pontiac grand am gt v6 was not wearing my seat belt. should my air bags of deployed?

It really depends on the type of wreck you were in. Your seat belt being on or off does not have anything to do with whether or not the airbags would be deployed.
If they were not deployed it means that your car will not be labeled as totaled, which is a good thing.

I have a 1997 Lincoln Continental and the back air bags arent working I replaced the battery and the air bag but its still on the ground. Is it possible that the alternator is the problem?

Has vehicle been wrecked before ? What does still on the ground mean .The air bag system should have fuse/relays also I would check these...Check under hood power block and fuse panel at dash.
It is possible to short out fuse or relay during removal and installation of air bag.

I've been in a wreck the damage is fixed. I have a new airbag control module. I've been told I need to replace the "crash sensors" before installing the new airbag control module. Where are the Crash...

The crash sensors are located inside the computer the accelarometer would of been replaced if the computer was replaced. Or the air bag control modual. The clock spring would need to be replaced but the front magnetic sensors should be fine, they don't normally wear out. they can be damaged but the air bag warning light would flash if it was bad. And the air bag would still not go off unless the other condtions are met to make the bag deploy. The air control modual would have been replaced if it was done by a shop that is part of the service when the bags deploy. The crash sensors are a magnet with a steel ball and when the right speed is reached and the ball is let go from the metal o ring that it sits in it will deploy the first trigger the next trigger would be the acelorometer in the air control module and the impact would have to be strong enought to knock that ball loose as well to trigger the air bag.

Air bag light flashing and check engine is on 1998 ford contour is this factry default never been wrecked

no its not a defect you have a wiring problem and you should have it checked by a qualified mechanic.

You air bag will not work if that light is on. And the check engine light is a totally different issue, you will need to find out what code is making the light come on.

Any major parts store can give you that info for free.

My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van flashes a 19 code. Does anyone know what that means?

Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!

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.
