I think that a scanner can clear the DTC (diagnostic trouble code).
It seems to me that if a problem is detected that the light will stay on to alert the driver until cleared.
General Information The supplemental restraint system was designed to provide increased protection in case of an accident for those in the front seat of the car, when used along with the safety belt system. The system MUST be disarmed before any work is performed on or around the supplemental air bag system. The system is an electronically controlled, mechanically operated system. The system contains two basic subsystems: the driver's side air bag module assembly and the passenger side air bag assembly, and the electrical system that connects them. The system consists of:

  • The crash sensors
  • The safing sensor
  • The air bag module(s)
  • The diagnostic monitor
  • The back-up power supply
  • The instrument cluster indicator
  • The sliding contacts (clock spring assembly)
The system is operates as follows: The system remains out of sight until activated in an accident that is determined to be the equivalent of hitting a parked car of the same size and weight at 28 mph (40 km/h) with the vehicle receiving severe front end damage. This determination is made by crash and safing sensors mounted on the vehicle which when a sufficient impact occurs, close their contacts completing the electrical circuit and inflating the air bags. When not activated the system is monitored by the air bag diagnostic monitor and system readiness is indicated by the lamp located on the instrument cluster. Any fault detected by the diagnostic monitor will illuminate the lamp and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). Fig. 1: Air bag system component locations — 1990–91 vehicles 84176001.gif

The passenger side airbag is off on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe... how do I turn it back on ?

There is no "switch" the passenger airbag (referred to as a smart airbag system) is controlled by a weight sensing sensor in the seat cushion, the airbag is disabled anytime that something less than about 50 pounds is placed on the seat cushion. If you put items on the seat under that weight like a bag of groceries for instance it can confuse the system and turn off the passenger airbag. What you need to do now is contact your local dealer and make an appt. to have the system scanned to see what the problem is that is keeping the passenger side airbag disabled. Good Luck.

Is the horn on a 2005 dodge neon connected to the air bag

no they are 2 separate systems even though the air bag is in the horn pad the contacts for the horn are separate from the air bad itself. if you have to replace the horn pad because of a problem you will have to disconnect the air bad circuit by unplugging the yellow plug connector under the dash by the steering colume and let sit for 20 minutes for the back up power to de-energize. most horn problems are the horn itself.

How do i remove a 2005 dodge durango air bag

HI Nick.

Please do not do this, there is pyrotechnics involved which can be extremely dangerous if triggered while you are working on it.

If you want to disable it for the safety of a child that will ride in that seat, look for the child safety switch to disable the airbag.

Keep in mind that even qualified mechanics are not allowed to work on airbag systems because it is dangerous.

Safety first please!
