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 connectivity2001 air bag light flashing - what is reset fix? - 2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT 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 me answer if it is useful to you.

If the Air Bag or SRS light is flashing this indicates there is a problem with the system. Due to the fact that working with the SRS can be very hazardous I recommend you seek professional help. Once the problem is repaired they will reset the light. The light will just come back on unless the problem is repaired.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Lincoln Towncar. The air bag light comes on

1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on 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 th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

Airgbag light is on. how do to reset it?


The short answer is no.
The air-bag warning light came on. Something has gone wrong and warrants a look to see what has happened. You would need to buy a special scan-tool to look at the live data, at stored codes, and after the repair is done, then reset the air-bag system.
Please don't tamper with the yellow connectors unless you know what to do. Static charge can set off an air-bag.

Air bag sensor keeps flashing


If a concern is detected, the air bag control module will communicate by flashing the warning indicator. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is logged by the air bag control module in a nonvolatile memory. For additional information, refer to Diagnosis and Testing in this section.

2001 suburban air bag light flashes 7 times and stays on we had the abs computer changed a week ago.any thoughts thanks


Was the ABS module changed at a GM dealer?
The SIR module (air bag) does no recognize the new ABS module, that is what is causing the flashing lamp.
The dealer will be able to reset the SIR module.
Let me know.

Air bag light stays on ?


Of course you should be concerned, air bags save lives, when the light is on the system is turned off, you need to have a scanner connected to your car to get the code that will help a trained technician fix the problem, do not attempt this repair yourself unless you are a trained pro, if the air bag goes off with out warning it can cause very grave personnel injury, such as a broken neck, this I know first hand.
