When your airbag light is on, it means that the air bag system is malfunctioning, and not ready to deploy. You will need to take it to a dealership where they actually have the knowledge to find and fix your problem.

Why would airbag light go on


The airbag system on many cars is supposed to have a "test" feature.
This means the light will come on temporarily every time you start the car, as a "computer-start-up feature".
You would have a problem is it stays on.

I have a 99 chevy malibu ls. It started just fine until one day I came out to find it would not crank over. Just got the dash lights. Thought it was the battery so I put my jump pack on it and it started...


That would indicate a dead battery. Get it load tested for free at your local auto parts dealer. Also make sure connections are tight. It would be the alternator if battery load test is good.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car


{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

My airbag light is always on the dashboard wat does this mean


If the airbag light remains lit after it runs through its test cycle it is an indication that one of the crash sensors is bad, the clock spring in the steering wheel is bad, or the airbag module is bad. If you connect an OBDII scanner to the test port under the dash you will get the trouble code that is triggered by the light and then you can replace the part that is bad.

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

All warning lights & dials on dash flip on and off continuiously?


I would suspect that the alternator is not charging sufficiently.

Be sure that it is charging or you risk a break down if the battery dies.

My airbag light stays on


I just had my car worked on in one shop, a HYUNDAI ATOS 2000 they fixed a bad windshield wiper mechanism, but after the repair, my airbag light remained illuminated,
the garage mechanic tried with 2 diagnostic computers to
'reboot' my cars own computer, but neither of his devices could communicate with my car,
I had to go to another garage with a proper computer
the repair took only 5 seconds!!
sobs!, they charged me $50 for the 'work'......the first garage evidenlty, touched something, and I had to pay the bill......live & learn,.
before this I tried all the 'tricks' like disconnecting the battery,
first neg, then pos, nothing else worked, damned computers!!

1997 Dodge Caravan Horn and Airbag light


It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .
