There is a fault in your airbag system, you need to have it checked and fixed by a mechanic

Error b1034 airbag warning light


This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

2004 jeep liberty limited 4x4 airbag light goes on when you start the car then goes off for a few seconds then comes back on . both dash light and grab handle lights do this


The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.

Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.

Check THIS ARTICLE for additional details.

Hope this helps.

The airbag warning light keeps coming up on the dash of my 01 VW polo saloon, how do i reset it ? it has been this way for two years but it has now failed nct because of it. it only started coming on after...


The light is on because of a code stored and will not reset till the code is cleared.The problem is ifsomething is damaged or a part has failed in the airbag system the light will come back on and you will need to make the repair in orderto keep the light off.

Good Morning - I did a emergency stop in my Golf GTI and the airbag fault light has appeared will I need to take my car to VW to be reset?


Anyplace can access the VW airbag code a reset might not do it. The reason for the light to come on is not beacuse you made a emergency stop.The light is warning you that a fault has been detected and if involved in a accident the air bag may not deploy or may deploy so theyll have find the code to see what has set it off.

Check for working airbags before buying a used 2002 golf.


The airbag light is on the speedometer head. It looks like a person sitting blowing a big bubble. It should come on when you turn the key on and go off about 4-5 seconds after the engine starts. If your airbags were missing you would know it. The horn pad on the steering wheel that says VW on it is the airbag. If you removed it a bunch of wires would be hanging from the steering wheel and you would be looking at the nut that holds the steering wheel on.

All warning lights & dials on dash flip on and off continuiously?


I would suspect that the alternator is not charging sufficiently.

Be sure that it is charging or you risk a break down if the battery dies.

The warning light above the airbag light on the dash. 2002 VW


Malfunction indicator light it is the symbol of your engine with a line of suffering and the word "CHECK" -- this could be something minor like needing a spark plug to be replaced (common problem) or to something more serious like engine electrical work needed. a flashing engine light is the more serious so you are not to worry.

2002 Hyundai Elantra, airbag warning light stays on


Airbags can be as dangerous and deadly, as easily as they can save a life. The airbag warning light is telling you that your vehicle has no airbags at this time.

If you don't understand the total airbag system, it's best left to a professional. It's worth the expense to have operable airbags, rather than chance a collision without operable airbags. My suggestion to you is to let the dealer fix your system so it is guaranteed.
