I would take it in. There maybe a crash sensor going bad. A safety system like the airbag system should have some type of warranty since we're talk about a 2005 Matrix. The Safety Board wouldn't like the manufacture if the airbag system only lasted less than 5 years.

Air bag light showing at the dashboard. It's intermittent happening. The air bag light dissapeared for a month then iy\t's back again. It usually appears for a couple of days. What could be causing t


The airbag light on the dashboard comes for few reasons, either there is a bad connection or connection came loose but than the light would stay on at all times, if it comes periodically than I would look up to the owner's manual and also find the airbag check label inside the car as it might be faulty or in need of replacement. The danger is that if it is faulty it can blow up by itself or in case of accident (hope none happens) it will malfunction.

After changing the front seats in a bmw mini cooper, the red air bag light remains permenantly on.....how do i turn it off?


Hi, BMWs have a history of showing unnecessary light alerts on the dashboard ...especially if they have outlived their roadlife. You need to check is there is any opening in your airbag windows...if none, simply ignore it....it will turn off itself with time.
cheers

Airbag light stays on or fluctuates. Possible causes?


A component of the airbag system is failing. If you are steering when it flashes it could be the clock spring in the steering wheel. When this light is on you will not have airbags in an accident. only a scanner can pull this info.

I have a 2004 E320 and it says on the dash board "front passenger airbag off". How dod I turn this back on?


is this light on all the time or just when there is something/someone in the seat? usually if there is below a certain weight in the seat the airbag wont deploy, something like 100lbs? although im not sure about this weight in mercedes. if i place something heavy such as a bag on the seat in my bmw the dashboard light comes on. not sure if this helps?

Air bag light comes on intermdiately


it is the sensor located under the dashboard area. you can buy another one off the internet for 50.00. with instructions on how to remove the old one and then send it back for your deposit back. however, my light also comes on and off when the weather changes. i would ignore it unless it stays on for a few days. all it means is your airbag isnt working. i lived most my life without airbags.

Makes sense if that is what code was stored in the Occupant Restraint Module. There are sensors in the seatbelts now.

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

1997 Caravan Airbag like comes on intermittently.


ok, if the airbag light is on, there is a fault with the unit, your concerns are valid, if it has a faulty sensor the airbag MAY fire for no reason or not fire when you actually need it. if it has a recall on it, take it to the dealer so they can rectify the fault.

Recalls are a warranty repair from the manufacturer if they try to charge you scream the joint down
