I doubt it.
And the warning light means the airbag system is disabled, right ?

Under the front seats you have wires going to your seat belt anchors.These wires are atached to a sensor witch activate the air bags if the anchors have force pull on them.The wires have plugs under the seat.Disconnect the plugs and spray with electical cleaner and replace.Make sure the ignition is switched off befor you attemt doing.90%of the time this will work.good luck.

SOURCE: Air Bag warning light is lit

it means the air bags are inoperative, maybe a fuse or an open circuit, best to have someone with electrical knowledge look at it

SOURCE: my air bag light stays

No different than any other OBD2 Malfunction Indicator Light
you get on your dash

My answer is pretty much the same,as we get hundreds of
these same check light questions every day

You can't work on your own car anymore, so it really doesn't
matter why or what the light is for,it still has to go in & be
diagnosed & resolved

That said, if the question is why or what with is wrong with the
srs or safety restraint system (air bag) don't know.

Has to be diagnosed by a repair shop with a professional scan
tool A code reader is of no value,so forget all the going to the
auto parts store advice for something free

Air bag light stays on


The light is on to tell the driver there is a problem with the SRS system and the system is disabled. So if there is a crash the airbags will not deploy. There is also a slight chance the bags can deploy at random times.
A mechanic would check the body computer for trouble codes then troubleshoot the system and repair.

I HAVE A AIR BAG WARNING


If the air bag warning light is on, some part of the SRS system is either not operating correctly or is not ready to operate, likely the clock spring.

See a qualified service technician to diagnose and repair SRS problems. Working on or modifying any part of the SRS system could cause the airbags to deploy unintentionally, and may cause serious injury.

How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

either of those could be bad.

best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer

Air bag light stays on


I just got a letter in the mail from Pontiac saying that if the air bag light is staying on then the air bag sensor, which is on the passenger side, may be bad.If any water has touched the sensor,that may be the cause of the light to be on.They also said that if it's on than your air bag can deploy at any time.Even if you haven't gotten into an acccident.I have the same problem and I am looking into the sensor for the air bag.You should do the same.Hope this helps you.
