The same light came on in my Passat, After many suggestions on how to fix it failed, I tried pulling the fuse for the airbags (they have their own dedicated fuse for safety reasons) Waited about 15 minutes and put it back in. The light hasn't came on since. Be cautious to remove the proper fuse only, and replace it before starting the car. If that doesn't work, you could try disconnecting the battery for around 20 - 30 minutes, that'll drain the internal back-up battery and reset the onboard computer. Other than that, you may need to have a mechanic with an OBD diagnostic scanner look at it - any dealership or garage will have one, the price of the scan can vary wildly so shop around before going. Hope that helped. Brother Grim

Srs light stays on drivers safety belt assy. replaced still we have light


The warning light usually means the system is disabled and there is a problem with one of the air bags or a sensor. You would need to get the system checked for trouble codes to proceed.

Passenger side airbag light wont stay off


This subject is covered in the 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual starting on page 116 under the heading of "Front Passenger Sensing System". I highly recommend that you read this FIRST.

If you do not have your 2006 Ford Escape Owner's Manual you can get a free PDF version HERE. (direct link to file)

If after reading the Owner's Manual, you are convinced that the problem is a malfunction (not normal operation) and is not caused by operator error, I recommend that you take your vehicle to a certified auto repair technician (or Ford Dealer) for diagnosis and repair. I DO NOT recommend attempting ANY KIND of do-it-yourself diagnosis or repair on any supplemental restraint system components without the proper training and equipment.

Have a dealer service the airbag system as they have a shelf life and most likely that is causing it to trigger (alot like service lights on newer cars).

Airbag light stays on


This is common on the beetle. More than likely it's diagnostic trouble code 00591 E24.
It will need to be reset with vagcom or vcds software. A few known trouble areas on the beetle that trigger this light are the seat belt buckles and the wire connectors under the seat. I've seen the connectors get loose and not make contact, and in one case the wires severed from sliding the seat. You might check this before you clear and reset.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

BMW 318i SE Airbag light


something in the airbag system is at fault. it could be the airbag(s) itself or any of the sensors that detect a crash to deploy the airbag. i would really take it into BMW and have it checked & repaired. the airbag(s) will not deploy with this light on so your safety is at risk if you are ever in an accident..

Hyundai Veracruz GLS 2008 Tire Pressure problem


Keep taking it back to the dealer until the fix it or give you a new car. Not that it's an immediate safety issue, it's just something that's supposed to be functioning properly. They have to address it because cars are legally required to have TPMS systems for safety. If a safety mehanism fails in your car, you can claim it is a safety issue. If you keep having problems with the TPMS light, you'll eventually ignore it. Then one day you'll have a tire going flat and you wouldn't know it.
