Air bag stays on 05 chevy impala

You will need to purchase an Air-Bag reader or send your car to the Dealer, for diagnostics. It will probably be the "Clock Spring" It is located inside the steering, directly behind the steering wheel. It is the one component that has moving parts. But without a reader, you will not know. You could cause the Air-Bag system to deploy the air-bag if you try repairing the system blind.

1995 toyota celica, temp gauge stopped working, air bag light now on?

Save radio code.Yank off one of the battery terminals. Turn headlights on for 30 seconds to dump computer memory.
Re connect battery.Re set radio and clock.
If that doesn't turn off the air bag light,see body shop for air bag re set.
Happens a LOT. It's a Toyota thing.

How to disconnect the air bag dash light. It stays on all the time. 1995 dakota

Don't know of any method to turn the light off except for repair of the following:
I believe what has happened is: While the column was disconnected from the steering gear someone, even by accident, has turned the wheel (from center), in either direction, more than it normally would when connected. This has damaged or broken the "clocking spring". It may also have damaged the cruise connections. These are located in the steering wheel, under the air bag. The clocking spring tells the system the relative position of the wheel which determines if it is safe to fire the bag, in the event of an accident severe enough to activate the system. This is a complicated repair, and should done by a qualified mechanic.

Installed new rack ,have air bag light on

The steering wheel needs to be prevented from rotating when it is disconnected from the steering linkage. The airbag system uses a rotational sensor that is just below the steering wheel mounted airbag. (Often called a clock-spring)
I suspect is was damaged during your repair.
The airbag fault codes need to be read to confirm.
Good luck.

Airbag light wont go off and the horn does not work

You may have a clock spring issue. It allows you to turn the wheel and keep power to the air bag. See if the light flashes a code at you. (Such as three blinks, pause, then two would be a code 32)

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.


Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

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.
