Could have damaged the front sensor, but you'll need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed with testing.

    I found a company online that say they will repair and clear all error codes for $49.00 with a 24 hr turnaround time. This sounds pretty good.

SOURCE: chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

SOURCE: Our service airbag light came

Hello and welcome. this light comes on to warn you that there is a problem with the air bag system. when this light comes on, the air bag control module will store a trouble code, this code is used to help isolate the problem. what you will need to do first, is have the air bag system scanned for trouble codes. then a repair can be made on the system

SOURCE: The service air bag light came on in my 2005 2500

Hi,

Without having the fault codes scanned in the Sensing and Diagnostics Module (SDM, also known as the Air Bag Module), its impossible to know for sure why the light is on, unless you physically see a fault.

Usually after a steering shaft has been replaced, if proper service procedures are not followed, the clockspring in the column gets broken, but it does not appear this is the case, since the job hasn't been performed.



The next step, if you don't want to take it to ge the codes scanned, is to inspect under the seats for loose connections. On these trucks, there is usually a seat position sensor attached to the seat track (what the seat slides on). On the drivers side, its located on the outside of the right hand seat rail, towards the front (kinda up against the center console if it has buckets). Often times the retaining clip breaks preventing the connector from staying on the sensor. they may be a similar sensor on the passenger side, also attached to its seat track rail.



If nothing is found, and you have side airbags (air bag in the side of the seat back) inspect the connections for them as well, usually accessable from behind under the seat).



If all that checks out, you may have high resistance in one of the connectors. I reccomend you unplug the battery and wait 10 minutes before carrying out the next step. After 10 minutes, Look for any Yellow connectors under the dash. Every yellow connector you find (yellow connectors are air bag connectors), unplug and plug back in 5 times each. There is also one behind the front kick panels, driver and passenger side. If there is resistance in one of these connectors, cycling the connector multiple times will restore the connection. Once all the connectors have been cycled, reconnect the battery and recheck the system.



If none of this works, you will have to take it to a shop and have the SDM scanned to help narrow down the failed component.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

How du you reset the airbag light on a 2005 nissan primera


Depending upon which "airbag light" you see, it's one of two things:
  1. If you are seeing the yellow AIRBAG light on your dashboard, it means that your airbag system is not operating properly, and should be serviced IMMEDIATELY, because it will not protect you in the event of a collision;
  2. If you are seeing the light in the middle of the dashboard that says "PASS. AIR BAG OFF," it means that you have disabled the passenger air bag, and it will not deploy in the event of an accident. Follow the directions in your User Manual.

Service air bag indicator light on dash stays on


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.

I have a 2005 Chevy 1500 4wd four door silverado and the airbag light came on and it has never been in an accident what could it be


Any component of the airbag system can have a miscommunication or bad connection with the wiring that leads to the module. The module is probably fine if it's detecting a problem and alerting the driver through the airbag light.

If the car hasn't deployed the air bag and it's never been in an accident, corrosion on the connections in the bumper area could have occurred, or a break in the wiring somewhere has caused this error to come to the driver's attention.

Car accident - airbags did not deploy


Definately not infinity, since they do not have any way of knowing car history, unless they do repairs. Likely not the dealer, unless they withheld info, ie:had prior knowledge and did not disclose. But quite possibly the previous owner, since on transfer, they have a responsibility to acknowledge previous car damage if it amounts to more than 25% of the vehicles value at the time of the repair. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

What is srs


When the SRS light is On the system has determined that a problem exists and because the system doesn't have the ability to judge how that detected problem will affect the air bags deployment the system shuts down the airbag system. They will not deploy in an accident where a normally functioning system would deploy the bags.

The SRS is a supplemental restraint system meaning that your seat belts are the primary restraint system. We're told that "airbags do save lives"; if that is true then you compromise your safety by not attending to the cause of the SRS light being on.

Good luck and please rate this with a testimonial too.

Cheers.

My 2005 gmc envoy airbags did not deploy on impact or even when the firefighters tried to deploy them... what the hell is this? my kids could've been in the vehicle.


If the airbag light had been on so long that it bunrt out then the light wouldnt be on to tell you they wont work. If the SRS fuse was blown or removed the airbags and the light won't work. If the car had been repaired by a less than honest repairman and the airbags were replaced with dummies that trick the light to being out.. The SRS bags are expensive and the triggers and the wiring are all supposed to be replaced if the bags were deployed in an accident. A dual bag system that has been deployed can cost $4000 to replace correctly, never mind the other work thats required to make the car safe and roadworthy. A car facts report may find the person thats responsable for the less than complete repair. If any senser or air bag doesnt complete the circuit to the controller the warning light SRS or AIRBAG orange or yellow will be on and the bags with the light on will not work. I hope everything comes out OK as to find this out you had to be in a hard accident and the fireman has been trained to protect the wreaker and rescue peaple by causing the air bags to deploy if they didn't. So the bags cant hurt them as they work to remove the busted car from the crash site

TOYOTA MATRIX PROBLEM


Airbag: with an OBD II reader, check the status of the airbag and reset it. If it continues to turn on, there is a defect in the replacement airbag.

Whine: bushings, bearing on the wheel. A common wear item in FWD cars. Need to be serviced.

Tick: a common wear item is a loose or worn bushing on the suspension. Not critical but annoying. Was a service item released as a Technical Service Bulletin.
