    Take it to your dealer. You have no airbags at the moment.

It came on because someone turned the switch on with the seat belt wires disconnected. to turn the light off you need to find a handheld scanner that has abs and you can clear the codes as long as the wires are plugged back in and not broken during the reupholstering. you may also go to a nearby shop and ask how much they would charge to clear your abs codes. it's not illegal for them to do it. it's not emmisions related

I have had my light on in my Porsche, trouble lies in connection with seat belt connections. Dealer
replaced my seat belt and everthing works fine. Porsches has had some issues with this, check your connections with belt/ wire connections under seat area. Possible they weren't connected poroperly or damaged when replaced seats back into car? As mentioned, air bag won't deploy in
accident if needed. Bigtime safety issue

Airbag light on 2001 sonata, also small modular under pasanger seat broken cover, and under driver seat there is a wonnector that does'nt go anywhere. thank's


First the airbag system can be dangerous to work on and it is usually best to consult a professional since to accidental inflation of an airbag can cause injury, do not cut any wires and disconnect the battery when working on the system.
When the airbag light is on it disables the airbag system inmost vehicles meaning if there is a collision the airbags will not deploy. Some autoparts stores can check codes which is where to start with the warning light on and modular connected check the airbag trouble codes with this information it will be easier to diagnose the system and the cause of your problem. I hope this helps

Vw golf mk5 airbag fault wires cut under seat reconnected does it require fault reset


You can reset the Airbag ECU only using VAG or similar diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, even you had repaired first fault wires cut under seat! After all faults erasing from the Airbag ECU the airbag warning light will turn OFF.

2008 MKz - Remove Objects Near Pass Seat


Do you have anything under the drivers seat? Fords will put the airbag module under the seat, if anything is packed around it, it can cause the airbag light to come on. Remove any items around it and check the connectors are firmly in place.
