If this is for a truck, it has something to do with the indicator lamp for the passenger side airbag. You would need the diagnostic test for that code to fix the problem.

What does it mean when the airbag light flashes twice and then twice again


It means that the airbag system has detected an electrical problem and may not work properly in an accident. The same light will flash if an airbag-less aftermarket steering wheel is installed unless a special kit is installed to eliminate the flash.

Airbag lite flahes twice then three times & stays on.


Sorry about your car. On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in thesystem, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly,some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with theairbag light system. When the light ison (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in anaccident. The flashing light on your caris telling there is a problem. On somevehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle does NOT require a scan toolfor the proper diagnosis. Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell youwhat is wrong! Although it's a pay site ($14.95/day), it's a lot cheaper thangoing to the dealer. A subscriptionthrough the website will give you the procedure for diagnosing and resettingairbag light. This site that will explain everything you need to knowabout airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can may be able to repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that mostpeople are capable of repairing. http://www.airbagsolutions.com/ http://www.airbagsolutions.com/scanlist.aspx

A beeping noise came on and the air bag light does not come on


If you are hearing a series of 5 beeps, 5 beeps and then a pause and it repeats, the airbag light is burnt out, and there is an error that the LFC ( light Flash Code ) needs to report.

Pull the cluster, and replace the airbag light, and then pay attention to the LFC that will be given ( example, 1 flash short pause, 8 flashes, slightly longer pause, then repeat the 1-8 pattern again, jsut as an example ).

Air bag light always blinking?


Mine came on when my car hit 120K mi. I also reset it using a sequence within the car.

Problem Scenerio: turn car motor on, car conducts self test, during which time airbag light stays on for 5-second (or 5 or 6-beeps)..it turns off for a second then flashes 'off and on'...and annoys the hell out of you as you drive...especially at night.

Solution 1: put black electrical tape (band-aid) over airbag light indicator...annoying problem gone.

However, in VA the airbag light can't be flashing to pass the annual car inspection, so....

Solution 2: Reset the Airbag light using the following sequence I discovered and heard about:

1. Turn key / ignition to 'ON' (Do Not Start). and await for the self-testing procedure to end (Air Bag Light stays on for about 5-seconds or '6-beeps')
2. As soon as the Airbag light turns off - turn the ignition to OFF position and count 5-Mississippi's (that's 5-seconds).
3. Then turn ignition back to 'ON' Position and repeat step 1 & 2 again.

Conduct Steps 1 & 2 - Three times in a row.

After the 3rd or successful timed sequence, allow the car to go through it's complete self testing stage and as soon as its done the airbag light will flash...but at a slower pace (That is good!) That means the cpu is resetting. Once you observe the slow flashing airbag light, turn the car off, then start it normally and the airbag light 'should' reset (not flashing and bugging the **** out of you).

Then, take the black electrical tape off the dash panel and throw it away.

This is no joke and it really works!! if you have any questions, contact me. carl@sat-tel.com

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back
