You need to have the OBD codes read to determine the exact problem. In some cases a simple re set of the air bag light is all that is required.

My airbag light on the driver side goes off and on and chimes every few seconds on my 2007 Pt Cruiser. I'm afraid if I drive it with this happening my airbag will deploy on me.


The warning light means that a fault has occurred in the Airbag system (known as the "SRS" system), when this light is on the SRS system is disabled, so no the Airbag can't go off because the controller module has turned it off completely. Get it fixed ASAP because right now if you have an accident your SRS system will not work (Airbags will not deploy) to save you from injury.

Why would airbag light go on


The airbag system on many cars is supposed to have a "test" feature.
This means the light will come on temporarily every time you start the car, as a "computer-start-up feature".
You would have a problem is it stays on.

My airbag light and dinger goes off every few minutes in my PT Cruiser. How can I get it to stop?


you have a airbag sensor somewhere. you cant do it yourself, because it could cause all airbags to go off. take it to a place and tell them you have a bad airbag sensor

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.

Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 ion the airbag light just started coming on when i start the car what is the problem?


the airbag light comes on when the car is started, then it goes out if the system passes its self test. if it does not go off within a few seconds, then your airbag will not deploy in an accident and you should get to a GM dealer and have the system serviced. any GM dealer will be able to check and fix it for you, saturn was GM.

What does it mean when the airbag light comes on?


Either the sensor in the bumper has lost communication with the airbag module, or the airbag module is bad, or the airbag package itself is damaged somehow.
