I also have a 95 Firebird and don't remember ever running into a recall of that matter. However you can look up recalls on the NHTSA website @ http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/recalls/recallsearch.cfm

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.

The steering wheel controls ie. cruise/radio/temp dont work as well as the horn doesnt function


In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

I am buying a volvo which originally had an airbag, but where the steering wheel was replaced with one which does not have an air bag. The car is a 1991 Volvo 740, and it doesn't have ABS so I was hoping...


It's unlawful to replace a deployed airbag with one not designed for the vehicle in some states. It's also unlawful to disable the airbag which by virtue of not replacing the airbag after it has been deployed. This car sounds like a headache waiting to happen. One has to wonder what kind of collision the car was involved in to make the previous airbag deploy. At the very least, verify the DMV and car safety laws where you live prior to making the purchase and if you're still intent on buying the car, you should get a CARFAX report first. I do wish you well and the best of luck. Greg

This is not a fuse issue.

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.

Airbags


You may need to call several salavage yards, but there should be one out there that will sell you one without the air bag. If your steering wheel isn't damaged, you might be able to disconect the air bag from the steering wheel.

My airbags blew i need to replace them


You need to replace your "airbag diagnostic monitor", and the "airbag sensors" as well as the airbags.

Once your airbags have been deployed, the airbag sensors may be damaged and may cause deployment for no appearant reason. You must replace the airbag diagnostic monitor, because it's internal thermal fuse blows upon deployment, and will not deploy a new airbag.

If you purchase airbags, and related parts from a salvage yard, make sure the diagnostic monitor is the same model as the one in your vehicle (the model number is on top of the unit, the manufacturing date is listed last and is irrellevant), but ford does use the same unit in most vehicles of the same year.

To replace the system, disconnect your negative battery cable and wait 1 minute before doing anything. Your airbag system is designed to be able to deploy for 1 minute after a power failure, so do wait 1 minute before doing anything.

In a 1995, your airbag diagnostic monitor is located inside the vehicle, center console area, under the heater and blower control assembly. It is a silver box that has 2 wire clips connected to it, and is retained with a couple 10mm bolts. (Don't get it confused with the larger computer that is under the radio area, the monitor is behind the computer)

Your 2 sensors are located in the front of the grill area, and 1 is in the driver wheel well area. All are held in by a few bolts, and have a long wire clip attached.

The driver airbag is held in by 2 bolts that are easily accessed on the back of the steering wheel, then a couple wire clips inside the steering wheel.

The passenger airbag is held in by 4 bolts that are accessed, by removing the glove compartment, and a wire clip behind the airbag in the dash area.

Airbags blow with extreme power and can be as dangerous as helpful. If you intend on doing the work yourself, follow the instructions carefully.

Install everything in reverse, and DO NOT HOOK UP THE BATTERY UNTIL THE REPAIR IS FULLY COMPLETED!

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Cheaply replace steering wheel w/out airbag module


Lisa,

I don't know what state you are in... but in Massachusetts your truck will not pass inspection if the air bag is tampered with. A missing airbag will report to the OBD (your computer) and will cause a fail for your safety inspection. Sorry!
