Hi,
The airbag light will stay on 'til you replace the computer sensor and replace the air bags. But it should NOT affect the ability to drive the car.

If you replaced the wiring harness, you'll need to go back and double-check everything. If it was done by a shop, then they should fix it.

No power


There is a park/neutral switch by the transmission. Make sure the connector is connected otherwise your car won't start. This switch only allows you to start in park or neutral. If not connected the car thinks you are in some other gear trying to start.

Battery, starter, and alternator good, but car won't start, or hesitates to start. What is wrong?


Check your fuses first under the hood and under the dash. Better hope they blew before you did major damage. If you find the ones that blew check what they ran and start checking out your electrical system in that area.Hope whatever started burning was just hot wires and not a ruined electrical system. If there is extra stereos wires or security systems installed (not factory) check that area and if possible disconnect them that may take care of the problem

Electrical - won't start. Hooked up fan to heater, smoke came out from under the hood, car won't start. Lights work, any key related electrical functions won't work


Your fan or heater likely shorted out and burned up, causing your one of the main fuses to blow due to the spike in current. You will need to determine what burnt up and replace it before replacing the fuse, or you may create a fire hazard or cause further equipment damage. Also double check any changes to wiring to make sure that everything is hooked up properly.
