It might be a loose sensor in the bumper. If the van is 5 years old or older, you should have the air bag system system inspected. You might be able to see what the problem is if the computer stored a code when the light came on. I would highly recommend getting the system inspected.

Air bag light is staying on after starting the car and driving.. on my 2006 dodge grand caravan


Light will come on when the system senses it cannot activate the
airbag. Best bet is to get a diagnostic.

It might be a defective clockspring in the steering column. This also may cause the cruise control to not work at all or intermittently.

I ordered the clockspring on ebay it was $30 buy it now, brand new. This was after the airbag light being on solid for about a week. Then one day it began to come and go intermittently. Then it went off and stayed off about a week.. The clockspring I ordered arrived and I set it aside to see whether the light would come back on. Well, today it did and it was on solid for a 100 miles of driving. I got home and disconnected the battery for about 5 minutes and reconnected. Light stayed on. So I pulled the steering wheel and changed the clockspring and the light has gone off and stayed off so far. I will post back in a few weeks if it stays OFF so others may find this helpful for future reference.

Sounds like the BCM (body Control Module), although it could be a bad battery or alternator. Since the van keeps running ok, I'd tend towards the BCM.

Since you lose speedo and such, it's a bit dangerous to let it go too long. ;>

You can also buy a cheap dollar store light that plugs into your cigarette lighter. Make sure you can see it, but it doesn't blind you. If the light stays at about the same brightness, or gets a _little_ brighter when the gremlins attack, it's probably NOT the battery or alternator. yes, it cheesy and cheap, but I _like_ cheap troubleshooting.

The airbag dash light comes on and off while driving down the road. Does this mean the airbag can deploy?


An airbag is not likely to falsely deploy. Whenever the light is on it means the airbag system is disabled. However it is never safe driving a vehicle with a malfunctioning airbag system.

Airbag Light Stays On on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport


Looks like a bad clock spring.Don't try to make this repair unless you know what you're doing!! If the airbag blows during the process,let's just say it'll ruin your day & probably the next week. I'm a chrysler master tech,so heed my warning please. I'd tell ya how to do it but I'll get sued if you get hurt.

this is telling u that a fault has been detected in the airbag circuit by the airbag diagnostic monitor module (system is disabled when light is on), the most common cause is the rotating ribbon contact called the clock-spring contact has a break in it's circuit to the airbag on the steering wheel. To replace this you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel. Follow factory protocol for disarming airbag or serious injury can result from unwanted deployment of the airbag

It's the " clock spring " . Dodge has a lifetime recall / replacement on this part. Somehow it controls the air bag and is tied into the horn and cruise control .

1997 Caravan Airbag like comes on intermittently.


ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.

Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down
