Seatbelts locked up after crash


They have deployed the seat belt tensioners! These are similar to the detonator on the airbags! You will have to replace the detonators and probably reset the dash lights too!

Chevrolet silverado 2004 airbag sensors reset


The airbag in your vehicle is an important safety device, and the airbag module ensures the proper functioning of your vehicle's air bag. If this module is not functioning properly, your airbag may not deploy during a crash. When there is a malfunction, your airbag module warning light will illuminate on your vehicle's dash. You will need to have the airbag assembly checked out by a qualified mechanic, but once that is done, you can reset the warning light and airbag module unit. If you've never done this type of job before, it should only take you 5 minutes.
    • 1 Open the hood and loosen the retaining nut on the negative cable wire cable clamp using a socket wrench.
    • 2 Slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
    • 3 Wait 3 to 5 seconds and reconnect the battery terminal. Tighten the retaining nut using a socket wrench. Once the power is restored, the airbag module should be reset.
    • 4 Verify that the module has been reset by turning the ignition key to the "II" position and checking to make sure that the airbag light does not illuminate.

How do I switch off the airbag in the passenger seat (to enable use of baby seat) ?


Personally i would never put a baby in a front passenger seat of a car fitted with an air bag. On saying that, there should be a key hole to turn the airbag off, using the ignition key. where this is situated should be on the centre dash between the seats or at the side of the dash near the pass side of the vehicle. A light should illuminate when the airbag is off to warn you that it is Disconnected/off. your owners manual should shed some light on this. Failing that stop off at ANY audi dealer and they will tell you.

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

How do reset the airbags warning light?


Some cars are designed to illuminate the warning light after the battery is disconnected. Playing around with the airbags and trying to turn this light off can be dangerous. That is why most people recommend taking it to the dealership to have it turned off. It might cost a few bucks but would be cheaper than having to replace the air bag if you accidentaly set it off while trying to turn the light off. I know that most people would like to try and fix it themselves, but just consider what might happen if you accidental perform a wrong step. Hope this helps

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

Airbag dash light


Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls & Defects Database Transport Canada Recall # 2007169 Recall Date:  2007/05/30 Notification Type:  Recalls Audit System:  Airbag Manufacturer Recall Number:  G09 Units Affected:  question.gif 51,000 Category: Minivan Recall Details: On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
