It is helpful to know the the year, make, and model of your car.

Just about all airbag systems will keep track of what has caused their problem. You need to have a shop or dealer with the right scanning tools read the airbag module and give you the diagnosis.

before you start your car the airbag module will scan all connections in the car, and if any do not have the correct signal it will flash the airbag light (this also indicates that the airbag system is not functional) so if you are in an accident while the light is on. the airbags will not deploy.

The problem could be a broken clock spring in the steering column, they are good for 15-20 years depending on how much the car was driven in those years. could be a faulty seat belt sensor, broken wire, bad crash sensor, Etc.

So get the car scanned and make short work of finding the problem, cost effective ?
You'll have to decide.

Where is passenger side air bag relay 2007 MKZ


There is no relay for the passenger side air bag . What seams to be the trouble ? There is possibly a code set in the air bag control module .
Air Bag and Safety Belt Pretensioner Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) The air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is designed to provide increased collision protection for front seat and second row outboard occupants, in addition to that provided by the 3-point safety belt system. Safety belt use is necessary to obtain the best occupant protection and to receive the full advantage of the SRS.
This vehicle line contains dual stage deployment (advanced restraint system) driver and front passenger air bag modules. These vehicles are also equipped with driver and front passenger safety belt retractor pretensioners. These vehicles can also be equipped with optional side air curtains that deploy from the A-pillar to the C-pillar upon a side impact. Vehicles with optional side air curtains are also equipped with seat side air bag modules in the front seats.
Side air curtains deploy from the headliner, protecting the first and second row outboard occupants during a side impact. Seat side air bag modules deploy from the outboard front seat backrest upon a side impact. In addition, a front impact severity sensor is mounted to the lower radiator support, a seat position sensor is mounted to the driver seat and a usage detection switch is added to the front driver and passenger outboard buckles. If equipped with optional side air curtain modules and seat side air bag modules, there are an additional 4 side impact sensors.
Vehicles are also equipped with an occupant classification sensor (OCS) system as part of the front passenger seat. The OCS system includes 2 OCS rails and an OCS module.
Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Indicator
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) indicator is a visual indicator used to inform the front seat occupants of the passenger air bag deactivation state. The PAD indicator is a stand-alone lamp installed into the vehicle instrument panel in a position visible to each front seat occupant.
The restraints control module (RCM) controls the state of the PAD indicator through a direct hardwire connection, based on information provided by the occupant classification sensor (OCS) system. The PAD indicator is lit to indicate the passenger air bag module is disabled. An exemption to this is when the front passenger seat is determined to be empty and passenger safety belt buckle unbuckled, and therefore indication of a deactivated passenger air bag module is not necessary. In all other cases, the PAD indicator is unlit when the passenger air bag module is enabled.
When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the PAD indicator prove-out period is initiated by the RCM. The RCM briefly activates the PAD indicator to prove-out the indicator function and verify to the front occupants correct functional operation of the PAD indicator.
The PAD indicator will be lit/unlit within 1.0 to 1.5 seconds of a change of state from the OCS system.
When an OCS system fault is present, the RCM defaults the passenger air bag module to the last valid state received from the OCS system until the ignition switch is turned OFF. If the OCS system fault is still present when the ignition switch is turned ON, the RCM defaults the passenger air bag module to enabled regardless of the size of occupant in the front passenger seat. The PAD indicator will be unlit. For information on the OCS system, refer to Occupant Classification Sensor System in this section.
The following table indicates the passenger air bag status and the PAD indicator status based the size of the front outboard passenger occupant.

I bought Toyoto Camry 2008 in UAE one month ago. After one week whenever I switch ignition on the Air Bag Indication mostly remains on. Sometimes, disappears for few minutes and then lights up again and...


The air bag light on then off for a while,while driving it comes on and stay on for a while this means the system has detected a problem in the airbag system and it is warning you that if you get in a accident the air bag may not deploy. My hope is that youll never need it and youll never be a vehicle when it goes off.

What is the red warning light "SRS"


It is the air bag malfunction warning light.

This will show if the fuse for the air bag operation has blown or if the fuse is removed and not replaced. There can also be other causes such as problems with the wiring or wiring connections.

As a first step check the fuse panel and ensure the fuse is OK. The fuse location is covered in the owner's manual.

    refer to Passenger Air Bag Deactivation Indicator in this section.
    Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Indicator
    The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) indicator is a visual indicator used to inform the front seat occupants of the passenger air bag deactivation state. The PAD indicator is a stand-alone lamp installed into the vehicle instrument panel in a position visible to each front seat occupant.
    The restraints control module (RCM) controls the state of the PAD indicator through a direct hardwire connection, based on information provided by the occupant classification sensor (OCS) system and the passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch. The PAD indicator is lit to indicate the passenger air bag module is disabled. An exemption to this is when the front passenger seat is determined to be empty, and therefore indication of a deactivated passenger air bag module is not necessary. In all other cases, the PAD indicator is unlit when the passenger air bag module is enabled.When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the PAD indicator prove-out period is initiated by the RCM. The RCM briefly activates the PAD indicator to prove-out the indicator function and verify to the front occupants proper functional operation of the PAD indicator.
    The PAD indicator will be lit/unlit within 1.0+0.5 seconds of a change of state from the OCS system or PAD switch.When an OCS system fault is present the SRS defaults the passenger air bag module to enabled regardless of the PAD switch status or the size of the occupant in the front outboard passenger seat. The PAD indicator will be unlit. The cost of PAD SWITCH is near to $85. and yes it’s a dealers part/but some car parts store keeps the compatible PAD SWITCH parts with them.they are not original but compatible.

    What does the red light on the bord with letters SRS means? It stays on for few seconds after I start the car (Honda accord 1995). Thank you


    srs means secondary restraint system. e.g air bags and things like that. when it stays on for a few seconds its because it is doing a systems check. if the light stays on all the time then there is a problem. hope i helped.

    AIR BAG FAULT WARNING LIGHT KEEPS COMEING WHEN CAR IS STARTED


    I had the same problem. My 2008 Passat had to get a faulty rotator that controls the electrical part of the dashboard on the car.First the Air Fault light came on then my whole dashboard went out the next day. I had no horn, no radio, no lights on at all on the dashboard. It was that rotator part that controls the electrics. I was told they are faulty after a few months, they ordered a new one, installed and my car is good as new.

    Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
    The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
    • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
    • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
    • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
    • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Prove Out the System
    Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
    • fail to light.
    • remain lit continuously.
    • flash.
    The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Active Commands
    This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.

    How do you reset an air bag light in a 1996 Pontiac Grand Am SE?


    The airbag light staying on could be an indication that the abs computer ( located under passenger front seat ). may have gotten wet. These cars usually let water in from the front strut towers. The light staying on indicates a problem with the computer, possible things that could happed:
    a: air bag DOES not deploy in an accident.
    b: air bag does deploy for no reason whatsoever.

    either of those could be bad.

    best to have it inspected by a certified abs tech or the dealer
