Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Indicator lights keep flashing when alarm activated


Is it a small light somewhere on the dashboard? I'm not familiar with that car, but any vehicle I've had with an alarm has a blinking light to warn you/intruders that there is an alarm on the vehicle. Check your owner's manual for more info.

My sercurity light is on. indicated on my dashboard my car was last started 2 weeks ago what could the problem be.


Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS, MIL, CEL and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System, MIL Malfunction Indicator Lamp, CEL Check Engine Light.

The airbag warning light flashes


First check the airbag or SRS fuse if blown replace if not you will need to take the vehicle in to either the dealer or a shop that has the appropriate SRS diagnostic equipment. When the airbag light is on or flashing it indicates the SRS system is disabled and major fault is present. There are many causes from component failure due to age or accident, to a blown fuse. Check your owners maual for the location of the fuse.
