SOURCE: AIR BAG LIGHT IS ON

You have to have a scanner to read codes, but it could very possibly be a seatbelt has fired, generally the one that does will be shorter than the other one, unless of course you had a passenger then they both would be retracted.

SOURCE: Air bags deployed now 1996 lexus es 300 wont start

Most likely the crash sensor (located somewhere in the front of the vehicle) has triggered. Some can be re-set, most have to be replaced, otherwise the vehicle will not start.

SOURCE: 330I drivers side airbag deployed and the car will not start

You triggered the impact sensor.(usually on or near the front bumper) It will need to be re-set or replaced, and obviously, you need to replace airbag.

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.

Hi there ,think you will find you will need to reset the engine management system
as it records the fact the air bags are deployed and thus safety feature is not to let he vehicle start as it thinks it still has deployed air bags,either a good auto electricion or dare i say fords.


hope this helps :-)

Does the deployment of the air bag trigger a "kill


I am not 100% certain, but to the best of my knowledge, on this car, the safety circuit monitors only for a spark pulse. It is not connected to the SRS system. If you kill the engine (as often occurs in an accident) and it does not detect the ignition pulse it expects, it shuts off the fuel pump.
I had an '87 once that would not cycle back on when everything was fixed. I had to short between fuses #4 and #6 to 'hot wire' the fuel pump to start the car. Once I had started the car and turned it off normally, I removed my jumper from the fuses and everything worked fine.

Says service air bag what does this mean? does this mean the air bag will not work if hit or will it explode on its own?


The car has to be scanned to retrieve the codes to diagnose it....
but the lamp means the system is inoperative until the problem is fixed...(it will not deploy) not to worry, it will not deploy while driving....but on the flipside it will not deploy if you are involved in an accident either......some people prefer them inoperative,some people like the safety of them...choice is yours

What is srs


When the SRS light is On the system has determined that a problem exists and because the system doesn't have the ability to judge how that detected problem will affect the air bags deployment the system shuts down the airbag system. They will not deploy in an accident where a normally functioning system would deploy the bags.

The SRS is a supplemental restraint system meaning that your seat belts are the primary restraint system. We're told that "airbags do save lives"; if that is true then you compromise your safety by not attending to the cause of the SRS light being on.

Good luck and please rate this with a testimonial too.

Cheers.

I am buying a volvo which originally had an airbag, but where the steering wheel was replaced with one which does not have an air bag. The car is a 1991 Volvo 740, and it doesn't have ABS so I was hoping...


It's unlawful to replace a deployed airbag with one not designed for the vehicle in some states. It's also unlawful to disable the airbag which by virtue of not replacing the airbag after it has been deployed. This car sounds like a headache waiting to happen. One has to wonder what kind of collision the car was involved in to make the previous airbag deploy. At the very least, verify the DMV and car safety laws where you live prior to making the purchase and if you're still intent on buying the car, you should get a CARFAX report first. I do wish you well and the best of luck. Greg

Air bag sensor keeps flashing


If a concern is detected, the air bag control module will communicate by flashing the warning indicator. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is logged by the air bag control module in a nonvolatile memory. For additional information, refer to Diagnosis and Testing in this section.
Lamp Fault Codes (LFC)
Item Part Number Description 1 One flash cycle: Driver air bag trouble code 2 Two flash cycle: Passenger air bag trouble code 3 Three flash cycle: Trouble code common to both driver and passenger air bag circuit 4 Four flash cycle: Safety belt pretensioner trouble code common to both driver and passenger pretensioner circuits 5 Five flash cycle: Driver side air bag trouble code 6 Six flash cycle: Passenger side air bag trouble code 7 Not used 8 Not used
