Question about 1991 Saturn SL1

1 Answer

Airbag light on, horn doesn't work

I purchased a 2001 Saturn SL1 used. The seller said the airbag had been disabled because he didn't like airbags. The airbag light on the instrument panel is lit. Also, the horn will not work. The Saturn dealership said that the two were somehow related. The wanted $85 just to check it out and could run in to the hundreds to fix.
I was wondering if there is a fuse that has been pulled to "disable" the airbags???
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much,
Jerry

There is a fuse for the airbag. If there is an owners manual for the car, look in that, it will show where the fuse is. On some cars it is in the fuse box under the hood.

98 Saturn SL1, Was in accident: Deployed Airbags & Horn questions


The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.

The airbag dash light comes on and off while driving down the road. Does this mean the airbag can deploy?


An airbag is not likely to falsely deploy. Whenever the light is on it means the airbag system is disabled. However it is never safe driving a vehicle with a malfunctioning airbag system.

I have a 2001 Lincoln Towncar. The air bag light comes on


1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

Airbag light is on


Ok that Sounds about right but only one problem, for all the components to be BAD, this means that this vehicle was involved in a serious enough accident for airbag to deplore. In most states its illegal to replace air bad that have been used. The airbag module will cost a pretty penny and the spool or "clockspring" will cost a pretty penny. Depending how much you paid for this vehicle + cost of these repairs to make this vehicle safe to drive becuase remember with airbag light ON airbags are NOT functional. The thing that I am thinking about is, was this a good purchased?JUST BEING FRANK WITH YOU Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
