Actually sounds like you have a short somewhere or a bad ground wire she easiest thing to check though would be your alternator sometimes when they go bad they will sit there and draw energy from you battery...sucks I know...been there.

Airbag light


all the vehicles i've ever worked on, about the air bag light thing.
Vehicles have what is known as a clock spring under the steering wheel, you have to pull the steering wheel to get
to it. VW may call it something else. That clock spring allows the steering wheel to be able to move, and it feeds
info to the steering wheel air bag. it's nothing but a wire connection that moves without breaking. After a lot of
driving the spring gets a lot of action and will finally break so the info is then blocked and the air bag light goes on.
If you decide to tackle it, disconnect the battery first thing, you could set off the air bag if you don't. The clock
spring can be removed and tested with a volt ohm meter to see if it has a reading or not. no reading bad...reading of
any kind good. The spring isn't cheep, and the repair isn't easy. You also have to be sure you have everything correct
or the air bag can go off when you reconnect the battery.

How do i change a clock spring in a 1997 plymouth voyager with out setting off the air bag ?


Disconnect the battery first. remove and unplug the air bag, then remove the steering wheel. Unplug the clock spring electrical connections, and release the two snap-clips that hold it in place. Then reverse. Have done many of these and have never had a bag go off.

Air bag light. On all the time


there is a device called a clock spring in your steering. it connects you air bag to the cpu and sensors, The clock spring is broken and needs changing. Its necessary cause it rotates freely and still keeps connection to your airbags. However it requires precise settings and its dangerous to install to do not attempt this your self. 1 mistake and your air bag will discharge in your face. Take it to a garage, have the clock sprint changed and error code reset and cleared.

On a 3.2 TL Acura, the "SRS" Indicator Light stays on after the engine starts. What codes will be indicated when I try and read the codes?


THE SRS means Air bag sensor and trigger ..

Simply put the SRS light tells you that the sensor cant connect to the trigger of your airbag namely the one locate in the steering wheel. This is beacause of a device known as a clock spring located in the steering. Its moves like a clock and allows the sensor and bag to get connection but sometimes the coil wires get broken.

To fix this take it to a SHOP.
reasons for that.
1.) A DEPLOYED AIR BAG WILL KILL YOU
2.) WITHOUT THE PROPER KNOWLEDGE YOU WILL DEPLOY THE AIR BAG
3.) EQUIPMENT IS EXPENSIVE

the fix involves. (REMOVE BATTERY)
1.) remove the steering wheel using the lock bolt and key
2.) unblot and remove then unlock the clock spring
3.) replace,
4.) recalibrate and reset spring
5.) reset error codes
6.) reassemble
7.) reset error codes.

Horn wont work but works with the panic button


The computer controls the horn and looks for a signal from the Remote Keyless Entry system or the horn button. Due to the fact that the horn works with the RKE but not when you press the horn button, would cause me to suspect that the Clock Spring mechanism, which is also used to activate the Driver's Air Bag, might be malfunctioning. When the Clock Spring breaks, the computer does not get a signal from the horn button so it can not opperate the horn. If I remember correctly, when the Clock Spring goes out, the Air Bag light on the dash either does not light up for 2 seconds when you first start the vehicle, or it comes on and stays on all the time, which is to let you know that the Air Bag is not functioning, and the primary cause is the Clock Spring. So check your owners manual to see if the Air Bag warning light on the dash is functioning normally. Your local Chrysler dealer can quickly and easily check the function of the Clock Spring, Horn, and Air Bag system, through the use of the DRB scan tool. If it is in fact the Clock Spring that is malfunctioning, the Air Bag module and the steering wheel must be removed in order to replace the Clock Spring, which should be left to a trained professional, that has been educated on the proper handling of the Air Bag system. You wouldn't want to accidentally deploy the Air Bag, as you could be injured. That and Air Bag modules can be expensive to replace.
