Re: Airbag light comes on Dodge Caravan
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.

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.
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
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
