Check that the light is not due to switched off passenger airbag. If it seems OK, take the car to the shop to be analyzed.

This can be dangerous, so act promptly.

SOURCE: 206cc airbag light on and airbag fault

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.

Hi my 2008 honda civic 1.8 is showing a air bag light and it won't start, what could it be?


I doubt that the two faults are related. Are you absolutely sure it is the airbag light and not the engine light. Typically an airbag light comes on when there is a fault in the airbag system, which has nothing at all to do with the engine system. If it wont start and you have plenty of fuel in it, then you are going to have to get it towed to a repairer for them to check it over.

Hi, my airbag light comes on in my 2004 X5 3.0d. When we reset the light it stays off for a couple of days & then it comes back on ? Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this fault. Many Thanks


you need to read the airbag code which will give you the solution instead of just resetting it. Common recurring problems are the occupancy seat sensor and the seat belt connector sensor.

What causes the airbag light to stay on


you will need to bring the car to a mechanic and get the ecu scanned with a scan tool and that will show up the fault and you can turn off the light with it also but it will more than likely come back on because its telling you theres a fault with the airbag so get it checked asap for safety reasons.

Why is the airbag light blinking in my 2003 Altima?


The airbag light will "light" when there is a malfunction in the airbag system. The fault is present in the air bag controller. The computer must be scanned to retrieve these stored faults to pinpoint the malfunctioning component. Your airbag system is not functioning. I strongly suggest taking it in to get tested!

this is telling u that a fault has been detected in the airbag circuit by the airbag diagnostic monitor module (system is disabled when light is on), the most common cause is the rotating ribbon contact called the clock-spring contact has a break in it's circuit to the airbag on the steering wheel. To replace this you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel. Follow factory protocol for disarming airbag or serious injury can result from unwanted deployment of the airbag
