The air bags has sensors, A code reader that can access the air bag module will be required. Anything else is just a guess. Most likely the air bag connector on the steering wheel is the issue. Especially if your a smoker. The ashes destroy the contacts.

The ignition system requires the alternator to be putting out 13.65 to 14.25 volts at all times when the engine is running.The battery can be fully charged,and will not have anything wrong with it,but,the ignition,requires more than battery voltage (12 volts) to run the engine.If the alternator is cutting out(not charging) just for a second,or for a minute,or more,then this would explain the problem you are having.It is not going to be easy to confirm my diagnoses,seeing that it only happens for a couple of seconds.If the truck has a volt meter ,or a charge gauge,you might catch it when it happens ,by looking at the gauge,it will drop pretty good.I would have the alternator checked,just the same,even though,nothing will show up most likely.I hope this was helpful,if it was ,at all,please let us know,thank you.

    If my diagnoses was right,the reason for the door locks,and the air bag doing this,is because the ignition would be sucking up,all the volts away from all the other components.This would make them act crazy,It would be like turning them on,and off,there for activating them.The air bag light comes on,upon first start up,and goes out,same difference,and the door locks(actuator motor,is being activated,like a switch,turning it on,the volts are actually reversed,because the voltage is pulling away from the actuator,.The actuator works off of reverse polarity,to unlock,and regular polarity to lock.Regular polarity would be normal positive,and negative connection,in reverse polarity,the positive,and negative would actually reverse themselves.

You very well could have a short or loose wire in the ignition switch. Sometimes the SRS circuit can be faulty setting off the air bag light. But the light is not connected to the locks. That is why I am suggesting to test the ignition switch wires with a test light or voltmeter to see if there is power.

    If it doesn't stay on, then there is likely a shorted wire or bad srs sensor on the front of the vehicle.

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.

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.

Chevy Blazer 4 x 4 and Engine Light Problems


To your problem with the air bag, I was driving an 07 GMC Sierra 1500 that was doing the same thing. Next thing the charges went on the seat belt tensioners, luckily I was parked because the belts gave me a pretty violent **** back. Turns out the SDM was corroded and caused the action, and there was no reason the air bags didn't deploy as well other than pure luck. I would say get it checked by GM, you don't want to mess around with safety systems. You can visually inspect the integrity of the SDM, it's located under the driver's seat, unfortunately I think the seat has to be removed to see it. Mine had a calcium like build up all over the external casing.

I think your BCM which is the body control module has failed, have a self test run on it to see if it will give any codes, if it won't test then it is the problem.
