The error could be in transmission abs airbags or engine among others. As many modules these days is staggering. Suggest take it to dealer. Not many mechanic shops have the ability to check codes or repair suspension , airbag or other manufacturer specific design ed systems. And you will get much more knowledgeable mechanic. Could be as simple as wheel bearing loose, most prelevent cause, but without codes from computer making lights come on, were dead in water. Transmission in limp home mode makes me lead to guess, ya just a guess, to say you are missing a speed sensor. Signal. Now car will still start without crank sensor, tourque converter input speed sensor, trans output speed or any of the four abs wheel speed. Like I said loose wheel bearing causes mag pick up wheel speed sensor to miss counts, ad has predetermined amount of pulsed electrical signals it produces, when one not equal to others then pops code. Good luck write what code is found and where. Thx
The most common cause for your air bag light is a faulty sensor. In this condition, the airbag cannot be depended upon to deploy in a collision. In almost every case, replacing the airbag sensor will solve your issue.
This is most probably one of two problems, if the light goes on and off whilst turning the steering wheel, it is most probably is the slip rimg which sends the neccesary signals to the steering wheel components. it could possibly have a break in it causing eratic contact.
However, these cars are known to give problems with the passanger and driver seat occupation sensors. these are pads within the seat that detects whether someone is sitting there in order to know which airbags to deplyoy in the event it would be neccesary.
The only way to determine wich component is faulty the vehicle will have to be tested with diagnostic equipment.
It should come on when you first start the car, then go off after a few seconds (to show that the lamp is working). If it stays on, you have a problem somewhere in the system. It could be the sensor behind the front bumper, it could be a loose wire or bad connection to the airbag itself. You need to take this to your dealer (or other trusted repair shop) and have it repaired, this is not a do-it-yourself job. If the repairs are not done correctly, it could cause the airbag to deploy when it should not (causing much damage) or not deploy when it should (adding to your injuries in a crash.) The lamp indicates that the airbag will (most likely) not deploy in a collision.
suspect you activated one of the air bag sensors. it takes activation of two of three sensors to blow off the airbag. have the airbag system scanned to see the sensors as to which one is causing the problem. there is also a chance that a loose connecter may have come off an airbag sensor from the jarring of the bump. either way you will need to get scanned to find out whats going on.

Transport Canada Recall # 2007169Recall Date:2007/05/30Notification Type:Recalls AuditSystem:AirbagManufacturer Recall Number:G09Units Affected:51,000Category:MinivanRecall Details:On certain vehicles the left or right front supplemental airbag sensors may crack under certain conditions, which can allow water to enter into the sensor. This can cause the airbag warning lamp to illuminate. A malfunction of one or both of the supplemental sensors will not adversely affect safety or cause a failure to comply with government standards. The single-point sensor in these vehicles, which is located in the airbag control module, is operational even if both supplemental sensors are inoperative. DaimlerChrysler has decided to launch a Customer Satisfaction Notification to advise customers that these front airbag sensors will be replaced with redesigned sensors to reduce the potential for damage. This action is not being conducted under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
