1998 Chev Blazer GT .. air bag light flicerks on and off

Air bag light goes on and off .. no real pattern as to when it comes on and how long it stays on .. sometimes stays on for the entire ride and other times flickers on and off .. but not once it's consistently cold it stays off.

Did anyone find the reason and a solution for this as I see others have also found the same problem. Checked recall listing for the 1998 Chevy Blazer GT and nothing mentioned in there.

    To what degree does that affect your safety in relying on the air bag to go off when it's needed .. or, for that matter going off when you don't need it .. why is there not a recall on this as there seems to be a lot with the problem and I don't see how they can say it's safet to drive a defective vehicle like this .. how can GM/Chev let people's lives be in danger!

    What would be your idea about mine - it goes out once the outside temperature drops below freezing concsistently and does not come on again until the spring when temps go about freezing - would you say it's something other than just the sensor? .. if so, what do you think it would be if other than the sensor as when it's been hooked up to the diagnositic device it does not give them a read.

There is a sensor that controls the lights performance. You can take it up to the dealer and they will check the sensor for a flat rate charge. If it needs to be replaced, then they can do that also. These issues can be caused by humidity or electrical problems.

    From my end, I cannot tell you whether it would be safe to drive that way or not. To be on the safe side (better safe than sorry), it would be a good idea to take it to the dealers. I am sure, that if you throw a fuss (not a big one...lol), that they will check it out for free for you. With that being said, every single vehichle I have ever seen has the same problem, eventually. There is no recall because we as consumers are supposed to get the airbag and other safety equipment (seatbelt, etc), inspected by the manufacturer every ten years.

This is a common problem and there should be a recall but nothing yet. there are two possible ways to pin point the problem. one is to see if a dealership will install a portable scanner and let u drive around with it for a few days until it registers the problem. The other is to have it malfunction and then get a scan. Autozone stores often will scan for free so I would go there if you have one nearby.

Air bag needs reset in 1998 chevy blazer ls. air bag comes on and goes off while driving down the road.


Chances are it's the airbag clockspring mechanism behind the horn in the steering wheel, they wear out and cause the light to flash. There is no reset for the light. If it's on, you have a short or a bad connection. The clockspring is available at most auto parts stores and installs with a few screws. Make sure you disconnect the battery before you do anything related to the airbag because you don't want it to go off while you are working on it.

Air bag light


if the air bag stays on that means you have a problem with the air bag system, and you need to have it diagnose, but if you just bought the sedona from a used car dealer they have to fix it, it is part of the safety inspection requred by law
