If the light is staying on there must be an electrical fault. You will need to get it scanned to find out what that fault is. I would recommend a Subaru dealer as this should be covered under warranty as the car is not very old

The red light above mode button stays on after anti theft horn went crazy and I disconnected the battery now my central locking and blinkers don't work and the interior light stays on please help

Disconnect your battery, put a bulb across the battery wires for 2 minutes. Then touch the leads for 2 minutes. Leave for 2 hours. Put the key in the ignition, but not on. Connect the negative lead. Connect the positive lead in one shot, straight on no messing about. Leave vehicle for 15 minutes to reset the electronics. May be all fixed now. Let me know.

Why the air bags make a warning sound beep

Need to get it to a reputable repair shop. Have them check for fault code in restraint system. You're getting a code 15 that's telling you there's a concern with the drivers side air bag, module, wiring, or component failure. Possibly a clockspring but that's only a guess. If you were to get in an accident the bags would not deploy, when module sees a fault it shuts down the system to prevent false air bag depl

Check your fuse box for broken fuses. Otherwise, disconnect your negative battery terminal for maybe thirty minutes, reconnect and see if warning lights stay on. It could also be a pre-set maintenance reminder to force consumers to get dealer service which would be 'reset' by disconnecting a relay.

If you get your clutch replaced in a 2002 Suburu Forrester, is it a separate batch of work to fix the hydraulics on the clutch?

That is a tricky question, adjustments should be done but if you need a new slave cylinder then its a diffrent story as the kit donot come with slave cylinder.

Where is the air bag control module located on a 1997 Saturn

The air bag module is under the center console.Before any repair make sure and disconnect the battery and remove the air bag fuse.Do not remove or disconnect anything in the air bag system for at least a half hr.This system can go off for up to 15 to 20 minutes after power is removed.You also have to watch out for static electricity.This can also make the bags go off.You have to be very careful around air bag systems.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I need to turn off my passenger air bag on 2005 impreza wrx. there is'nt any switch. can i disconnect a single bag without causing problems?

Remove the negative battery connection and let sit for 15 minutes or so. That will de-energize the firing mechanism on all bags. Reconnect the battery after all repairs are complete.

it happens every time you run the rear wipers, it blows out the fuse, and thus the red air bag light goes on. they are on the same circuit. try not to use the rear wiper. to fix it, just temporarily use a 15 or twenty amp fuse in place of the blown out one (refer to the manual for fuse box and amps), this will set the wiper to sit back in its normal position. After this has been done, go ahead and replace the fuse with the correct amps, and the air bag red light will sets off.
Note:( reason to use higher amps is to allow the wiper to sit back in its own place, otherwise, if using the same lower amps it will keep blowing it out.) ofcourse disconnect battery first. Good luck

Chronic problem with airbag light staying on.

Not sure of the year of your car, but there was a recall to resecure the harness connector. If it is 2005 the entire airbag harness should be replaced, Sorry only the dealer can access the air bag info.
