The air bags need to be worked on by a pro. Did you check the tranny fluid? If not do so and add if needed. If the tranny fluid is fine then start checking all of the vacume lines.

Air suspension light comes on after copmpressor stops running


Sounds like you need to check the air-bags for a leak. Unfortunately, the compressor may have wore itself out attempting to continuously provide air to the air-bag and may also need replacing. Just my $0.02 worth.

2007 tahoe will not start. started this morning and now nothing. turn key on and everything works. a message comes across dash and says service air bag. will not turn over.


if there is a fault with the air bag the car wont start as a safety precaution so it doesnt go off while your driving i think you have no choice but to have an auto electrician or service guy look at it and get it fixed. sorry to be the messenger of bad news.

Steering wheel adjustment , the steering whell is 90degrees off but the car does not pull eather direction. car was stolen no damage just steering whell truned


jack front of car up then turn steering wheel full lock to full lock and count the number of turns from either side then divide by 2 so you have the straight ahead position then remove the steering wheel and replace in the straight ahead position ,iam saying this because the vehicle may have been re tracked and only one track rod end adjusted so you have say 2 turns to the left and 2 and half to the right if you follow me .or remove the steering wheel then just hold it on and slowly drive forewards and lift wheel and refit to the correct position

Hi, Please help me find air bag on/off button in the Lexus RX 330 2004 model, because passenger air bag light is always switched on. Two driver front air bags were damaged and we changed them with new...


make sure that you don't have a bunch of stuff on the passenger seat. these vehicals have a scale built in the seat to turn it on. if it stays on you may have a problem with the seat but will need a professional scanner to properly diagnos the system.

How do I turn off the passengers air bag as it is making noise when the ignition is turned off. It sounds like the bag is moving inside the dashboard. Thanks


The first thing you do is to disconnect the Battery's Negative Post. The Air Bag System has to wait two minutes for the capacitor to discharge after removing the negative cable end so you don't accidentally deploy the air bags. Then under the glove-box behind the parking brake, there's a module bolted to the "hump under there. This is the "brains" of the Air Bag System. Unplug it from the module, Now if you have a scanner, hook it up (don't hook the negative cable up as of yet), and then place the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON Position. Then with no one inside the vehicle, hook up the negative cable. If you have a code scanner you may have the Air Bag warning light stay on, but this is what will happen when it runs it's diagnostic procedure prior to dropping it into gear. To be a little bit more legal, I've seen people remove the instrument cluster and remove the bulb to the air bag warning light. It will not pass a vehicle inspection, but your only other alternative is to take it to the Dealership and have the passenger side air bag repaired. The aforementioned fix I provided you above is a "limp-in mode", or a safety fix so you can drive it to a place of repair without the passenger side air bag deploying causing you to have to replace the dash board where it splits upon release. Should you hook the negative cable back up and all is well, reach in above or behind the steering wheel and turn the key to the OFF position and then start the engine to make sure nothing deploys.

I do however recommending you take the vehicle in for the Technicians to run their DRB III, as Chrysler calls it, to diagnose the hissing sound to that air bag.

The horn is not working on my 2001 gmc 2500hd pickup the fuse is good and I changed the relay with onw from an aftermarket auto parts store is it possible I need an original realy from a GMC dealer, if not...


The horn itself may be bad as hooking a jumper wire from the battery should get it to honk if *** does the horn button in the SRS may not be making. Is the check engine light on when driving or the SRS yellow light on? ( air bag )? If the horn doesnt work and the airbag light is on you can have a clockspring problem These are under the sreering wheel and allow the turning parts to trun and still be connected to the car but turn too far they'll break and the air bag and the horn both won't work. This is a pro area of the car to be working on as the air bag system mishandled can hurt the repairman very baddly as your not in normal driving position while working on it. Just cause the warning light is on doesnt mean the bag won't go off ! ! The relays seldom fail and new parts store ones are fine too

Service air bag light on. Limits the car to 90 mph!!!


Your air bags are for when you crash, unless youre driving a custom lowrider. An air suspension system problem doesn't have a light, just a fault code in the computer system and will dispaly as a digital message. You'll need to take it to a shop with the proper equipment for diagnosing air bags in ordeer to have the light turned off.
The shaking is likely your half shafts and can usually be identified simply by examining the dust boots. If they're cracked or broken dirt will get inside and the bearings being quite sensitive and under a lot of 'pressure' will grind themselves into oblivion with small amounts of debris.
