An airbag is not likely to falsely deploy. Whenever the light is on it means the airbag system is disabled. However it is never safe driving a vehicle with a malfunctioning airbag system.

Airbag problem and light on could it just deploy while I am driving


No.. If air bag light is on, it means the airbag system is shut down and will NOT deploy in the event of a collission. You will need to have the codes scanned for the airbag system to determine the problem and repair as necessary

Check airbag lite in on. shows a person with a bubble in front. is vehicle safe to drive or will it deploy while I am driving?


The check airbag light means that the vehicle's computer has detected a likelihood that the airbag will NOT deploy in an accident as designed.
This means there is virtually no chance it will inflate for no reason at all.

Airbag light is on


The light come on when the system detects a problem and sets a trouble code. You should have it diagnosed by a trained technician. The airbag system is not for do it yourselfers.
The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. When the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy in the event of an accident. When the air bag light is on the system has set a code(s) in the computer A scanning device can retrieve the code(s). The code(s) will give you a clue where the problem is. Many auto parts stores will read the code(s) from your vehicles computer for zip if you purchase the parts necessary to repair the vehicle from them.
you have a false signal coming from the sensor harness.
It means there is an issue with your airbag. You should have it diagnosed and repaired.
If the air bag light is coming on then you have a problem with the SRS. Seek professional help.
On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.

SRS ( supplement restraint system)if your light is on while driving, it means there is a malfunction in the system somewhere, which you should have checked
The light comes on because the airbag computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool. You then need to have the cause repaired by a trained technician. The airbag system is not a safe place for do it you selfers.

Either the bags have been deployed or there is a problem with the computer/sensors periods
If it's the computer/sensor the bags won't deploy. get this checked out

The airbag light on the dash of my 2003 Audi A4 keeps coming on. How do I fix it myself?


its unfortunate but u are not able to. Your vehicle has multiple computers controlling all the electrics.
When a warning light comes on such as your airbag light or an engine light it is usually because of a fault.
if there is a fault and you ignore it and just cancel the light, then in an accident the airbag might not deploy. which would not be a good end result.
i would take it to a mechanic who has a scan tool to find the code that is causing your airbag light to come on, then fix the issue.
this will solve your airbag light problem and keep you safe on the roads as well.

cheers

How do I reset a airbag light on a 2001 sportage?


You reset the light by taking it to the dealer and having the SRS repaired. Ignore this and either your air bags will not deploy, deploy at the wrong speed, or deploy while you are driving down the road. Get this fixed as soon as possible. It is not a DIY job, as it is very dangerous.

I need to shut off the airbag light


the air bag lights on all mopar's/chrysler products are controlled by a sensor in the airbag circuit and come on wehn the air bag has outlived its ability to function correctly which usually means the air bag will not implode safely after that point! you can spend time and money replacing the senor to it! however it will come down to you have to spend serois money buying a new bag . if it's just the light that bothers you? then remove the buld socket from the dash and take the bulb out

Airbag light keeps coming on then off and on all the time


Hello, The airbag light comes on whenever there is any problem with the safety restraint systems.
This means that while the light is on the AirBag WILL NOT deploy. It could be several things....Electrical short in the Steering wheel (supplies power to Airbag), Seat belt locks (if the computer thinks the seatbelt is not in use it won't deploy the airbag), these are the most likely problems, But it could be bad or loose wiring under the dash (aftermarket Stereo?), or Impact sensors, or the Body control module. Any other lights? When does it come on / go off? Random or predictible pattern? Goods news is the car does not need an airbag to drive ... Good luck , hope that helped..
