98 Saturn SL1, Was in accident: Deployed Airbags & Horn questions

I drive a 1998 Saturn SL1 and I was in an accident the other day, and my airbags deployed. The car is still safe to drive, and the damage to it is mostly cosmetic. I'm going to try to buy my own airbags online to have them installed, but I can't get a straight answer on whether or not I can get the Airbag light in the dashboard to turn off. Do I just need to have the airbags replaced, or are there other sensors that need to be reset and/or replaced, or do I need to get a code in the computer fixed? Also, my horn hasn't worked since the accident, and I assume that this has something to do with the airbags. Is there a way I can get the horn to function while I'm waiting on a new set of airbags? I've checked all of the fuses related to the horn and airbags, and they all look just fine.

Thanks a bunch!

The light should go out after you replace the sensor that should be in the front of the vehicle.You can check the fuse for the horn. However, some of the airbags that don't come from a dealers, don't deploy, but there is no way of knowing that until you are in an accident.

Has this car even been in an accident where the airbags deployed? I had this occur on my Chrysler after an accident, so it may be a feature to insure that you get it repaired properly. In my case the car was totaled, so no repair was made.

Airbag light on, horn doesn't work


There is a fuse for the airbag. If there is an owners manual for the car, look in that, it will show where the fuse is. On some cars it is in the fuse box under the hood.

I got into accident, airbags deployed, dont want new airbags, but front blinkers dont work, how do i fix?


If this was a reportable accident, your insurance company should take care of the air bag and consequencial damages. Bypassing safety devices as such creates greater risk of severe injury because the rest of the vehicle is designed with all systems functional. Ck w/ insurance co.

Airbag light is on


Ok that Sounds about right but only one problem, for all the components to be BAD, this means that this vehicle was involved in a serious enough accident for airbag to deplore. In most states its illegal to replace air bad that have been used. The airbag module will cost a pretty penny and the spool or "clockspring" will cost a pretty penny. Depending how much you paid for this vehicle + cost of these repairs to make this vehicle safe to drive becuase remember with airbag light ON airbags are NOT functional. The thing that I am thinking about is, was this a good purchased?JUST BEING FRANK WITH YOU Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
