FixInfax is right except I'll add a few add ons to his statement. Number one. If the airbag deployed you'll have crash data saved in the airbag module. Anytime an airbag is deployed and data is stored you must replace the airbag module as well and the new one must be coded by Volkswagen. Number 2 as a technician of vw I would not erase or repair any airbag faults previously repaired by someone else because we cannot be sure what parts were installed or if they were well installed. If someone came to me and said we replace the module and the airbags can you code the module alone my answer would be NO, because too many safety aspects ride on it. Imagine someone did this for a client and a day later they were fatelly injured because of a crash or deployment and the last person to touch the system was a vw tech. It is too risk for the tech to do so, so when an airbag is replaced it should be only done by the qualified tech who will do the whole job.

Where is passenger side air bag relay 2007 MKZ


There is no relay for the passenger side air bag . What seams to be the trouble ? There is possibly a code set in the air bag control module .
Air Bag and Safety Belt Pretensioner Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) The air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) is designed to provide increased collision protection for front seat and second row outboard occupants, in addition to that provided by the 3-point safety belt system. Safety belt use is necessary to obtain the best occupant protection and to receive the full advantage of the SRS.
This vehicle line contains dual stage deployment (advanced restraint system) driver and front passenger air bag modules. These vehicles are also equipped with driver and front passenger safety belt retractor pretensioners. These vehicles can also be equipped with optional side air curtains that deploy from the A-pillar to the C-pillar upon a side impact. Vehicles with optional side air curtains are also equipped with seat side air bag modules in the front seats.
Side air curtains deploy from the headliner, protecting the first and second row outboard occupants during a side impact. Seat side air bag modules deploy from the outboard front seat backrest upon a side impact. In addition, a front impact severity sensor is mounted to the lower radiator support, a seat position sensor is mounted to the driver seat and a usage detection switch is added to the front driver and passenger outboard buckles. If equipped with optional side air curtain modules and seat side air bag modules, there are an additional 4 side impact sensors.
Vehicles are also equipped with an occupant classification sensor (OCS) system as part of the front passenger seat. The OCS system includes 2 OCS rails and an OCS module.
Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Indicator
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) indicator is a visual indicator used to inform the front seat occupants of the passenger air bag deactivation state. The PAD indicator is a stand-alone lamp installed into the vehicle instrument panel in a position visible to each front seat occupant.
The restraints control module (RCM) controls the state of the PAD indicator through a direct hardwire connection, based on information provided by the occupant classification sensor (OCS) system. The PAD indicator is lit to indicate the passenger air bag module is disabled. An exemption to this is when the front passenger seat is determined to be empty and passenger safety belt buckle unbuckled, and therefore indication of a deactivated passenger air bag module is not necessary. In all other cases, the PAD indicator is unlit when the passenger air bag module is enabled.
When the ignition switch is in the ON position, the PAD indicator prove-out period is initiated by the RCM. The RCM briefly activates the PAD indicator to prove-out the indicator function and verify to the front occupants correct functional operation of the PAD indicator.
The PAD indicator will be lit/unlit within 1.0 to 1.5 seconds of a change of state from the OCS system.
When an OCS system fault is present, the RCM defaults the passenger air bag module to the last valid state received from the OCS system until the ignition switch is turned OFF. If the OCS system fault is still present when the ignition switch is turned ON, the RCM defaults the passenger air bag module to enabled regardless of the size of occupant in the front passenger seat. The PAD indicator will be unlit. For information on the OCS system, refer to Occupant Classification Sensor System in this section.
The following table indicates the passenger air bag status and the PAD indicator status based the size of the front outboard passenger occupant.

How to Reset airbag light


  • Most likely you replaced the clock spring and air bag module right? Well when the srs deploys you also have seatbelt pre-tensioners that are part of the whole retractor assembly and cannot be repaired. Ie either side retractors are not working right , then you need to replace according to chrysler corp.

How to remove stiering wheel horn cover and air bag from a 99 vw jetta gl


Stop, hold everything, do nothing.

You have not said whether or not the air bag has been deployed or what your goal is here. But one thing I do know is that these devices are dangerous. They don't hit you like a fluffy pillow. Premature deployment of an unanchored airbag can be deadly.

Even if you are extracting a previously deployed airbag and have no intention of replacing it, consider, 'is this the only air bag in the car'?

I will get into how they are removed after my mandatory (imposed by me) list of precautions.

Click here for a list of precautions. Read them. Read them again and take them seriously.

I'll repeat a statement from the link. Taking these precautions does not make them safe, it lets a person handle them with a higher degree of safety.

Let me know when you have them memorized

Mike

Yes, I'm a pain. But after 700 extractions I've never had one blow up in my face either.

Airbag locations


In the steering wheel and passenger side dash.Due to the age of the vehicle probably doesn't have the curtain "side" airbags.The airbags were designed primarily for head on collisions. Here is some useful information to why the may have not deployed courtesy of http://www.asashop.org/autoinc/dec2001/collision.htm
How Air Bags Work To have a frontal (driver or passenger) air bag deploy, certain criteria must be met. One of these criteria is that the frontal impact must be within a 60-degree window, occurring within 30 degrees from the vehicle's centerline. Another key element is that the crash forces are equivalent to a head-on collision with an immovable barrier at 10-15 miles per hour. Because a typical automobile accident only lasts about 0.125 (1/8th) of a second, air bags deploy within 15 to 20ms after the initial crash impact. To create a protective cushion between the occupant and the vehicle's interior, the air bag inflates at speeds up to 200 mph within approximately 30ms after impact. This allows the occupant to contact a fully inflated bag within approximately 45 to 50ms after the initial crash impact. Approximately 100ms after impact the bag deflates.

Where is the airbag module located on 2004 vw jetta


The airbag module is a serious safety device and should not be tampered with. The entire air bag system ie module , air bags, seat belt tensioners etc are treated as one unit and there fore not a serviceable item or part replacement there of. The module should be located in the bowels of the dashboard (yellow wiring ) and mounter to the bulkhead. Do NOT tamper or adjust any componants.Good luck

The Air bag light came on solid


If you want your air bag to work, you should take the vehicle to a shop for service. This light indicates it probably won't deploy in an accident.

It's your clockspring. It's inside your steering wheel, underneath the airbag. Controls the electrical connection to your airbag and horn.
