There are sensors for your airbag and one could be shorted out or you could have a legitimate airbag problem. This could be nothing to worry about but I would have it checked out to be safe.

You should be able to take it down to most any parts store and have them hook a diagnostic computer to get the trouble code for the air bag system. If you have an Advance Auto Parts near you I'd recommend them. Just go inside and ask if they can diagnose your trouble light with a computer.

92 chevy caprice instrument panel light flashes infl rst what does that mean?


The flashing light is indicating the air bag module has detected a system failure within the air bag system. It could be as simple as a seat belt switch or as much as an air bag that has failed. You will need to have the system scanned at a qualified repair facility or your local dealer to determine what the exact problem is.
Good luck.

Light on instrument panel


That is an Airbag Warning Light. You will need to have the Dealership or a Qualified Mechanic Reset this Light. If you try and mess around with the Air Bag System The airbags could go off resulting in Major Repairs to the Dash and other Components.

Air bag light flashes 5 times then2 times how to reset light have tried leaving battery disconnected overnight to no avail.light started after removal of fuses to check for power to rear wipers.


CLEARING CODES (works for code 52)
1. Only intermittent codes and codes that diagnostic monitor recognizes as being repaired may be cleared from memory. To clear codes, cycle ignition OFF to ON. Observe AIR BAG warning light. AIR BAG warning light will illuminate for 4-8 seconds, and flash fault code.

(Comment) Loosely translated - If you dont have the problem fixed, this wont work. Code 52 should clear with this!

2. Locate air bag diagnostic 2-pin connector.

(Comment) This was a fun one. According to the air bag wiring diagram that I also got from Mitchell, the Airbag Diagnostic Connector is located "Right side of Instrument Panel". The only thing I found immediately to the right of the I/P (between the stereo and Instrument panel) was a black computer with 4 connectors which is NOT what I was looking for. I finally found a blog that mentioned the computer for the air bag computer was behind the right side kick panel. Sure enough....there it was. Attached to the side of the diagnostic computer was a two prong diagnostic connector.

3. Connect a jumper wire between diagnostic connector terminals. Leave jumper wire connected until diagnostic monitor tone sounds (about 5 seconds). Disconnect jumper wire. Fault code is cleared.
