How can I remove the driver's side deployed airbag on my 2005 saturn Ion 3?

The Airbag is held to the steering wheel by screws at the back of the steering wheel, remove them and disconnect the electrical connector to the Airbag. Also whenever an Airbag is deployed the Airbag control module must be replaced, they are a one deployment part and then thrown away.

My horn won't stop blowing after the steering wheel got punched what do I have to do to get it fixed

buy a new horn switch, it is imbeded inside the center of the steering wheel. you will most likely have to have a GM dealer replace it for you so that the airbag system is kept intact. however you could buy a repair manual or take a search through the saturn repair videos on perhaps on your model the horn switch can be replaced without any chance of screwing up the airbag. sometimes the center snaps out and sometimes there are a few small screws holding it in.

Deployed air bags

My daughter has a "99 Saturn SC1, and she hit a curb and deployed hers. I (Many years as a mechanic) replaced both bags, the computer which is located under the center console, and the "clock spring" located behind the steering wheel to get it all working. (No air bag light on while driving) The steering wheel airbag melted the clock spring when it fired. I purchased these all used on E-Bay.

When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

***As per Haynes Manual for your Vehicle*** Warning: if your vehicle is equipped with a suplemental inflatable restraint (SIR) system, always disengage airbags before working in the vicinity of the sterring wheel to avoid accidental deployment of airbags.

3. Unplug the wires from the ignition switch, remove bolts and lift the switch off the steering column.
4. Installation os the reverse of removal.

Hope this Helps! I have a an illustration and it looks that the switch is on the left side of the steering column. If you need any information or help removing the Steering wheel or steering column covers let me know! Good Luck.

I am changing the turn signal multi function switch on my chevy lumina and ahave to take off the steering wheel which has an air bag in it the bag wont blow if i pull the cover off the wheel will it???

Before you take any thing off the wheel or take the airbag connector loose please remove both battery terminals and step on the brake pedal and release it 5 to6 times times draw any and all electrical current from the vehicle, then you can dislodge the airbag module, without exploding it, that would be painful.Get back to me with any questionsI'M HERE TO HELP!!!

How do I remove the Steering Wheel on 2002 Pontiac Grand AM

Relax it will all be aight. Step number 2: Go out and have a coke and a smoke break (as my tech school instructor said to me when I asked this question in tech school haha ! ! ). The Airbag System has a reserve power sytem that will allow the airbags to deploy up to a certain time if for some reason the battery becomes disabled in the event of an accident. U only have to unplug the airbag module from the Clockspring. If it will make you feel more comfortable, leave your battery disconnected for a half hour and then start the disassembly process of your steering wheel. After a half hour you just unplug the airbag connectors from the clockspring. Hope I was able to calm your nerves so you can remove your steering wheel without having the fear of blowing up your airbag.
