If the air bag light keeps flashing, the system is tellingyou that it is sensing a problem right now. does everything attatched to the steering wheel work. if all those things attatched are inop, the problem lies in the clockspring which is merely a band of wires that allow for rotation of the steering wheel and after so long, they tend to wear at kind of like taking a piece of metal and bending it back and forth. eventually its going to break. check your horn and all accessories attatched. if all is god, it will need to be scanned for trouble codes to assist you in going down the right path for repairs. at this point your airbag system is inop.

SOURCE: SRS Airbag sensor light

Hello you need to take it to the dealer. When the light is on that means the system is disabled. There is a fault in the system. The cost factor in this depends on the part needed to fix the problem most of them I'v seen it has been a clock spring if you have tilt steering it causes the wires to the clock spring to break.. hope this helps thanks

SOURCE: srs airbag light is on on my 99 pontiac grand prix

If the seat belt light comes on intermittently with the belt buckled, it may have a bad switch in the buckle or a loose connection @ the switch. This may also set a diagnostic trouble code in the srs control module & keep the srs airbag light on.

Hi, Joe here to help,
Without going to a dealer, you need to get a scan tool to reset the srs light. Go to an Autozone store, They will scan it and reset it free of charge.

1999 Mercury Cougar Airbag Flashing off and on


Generally speaking, the flashing light means there is a problem with the system and the air bag has been deactivated.
If the light is flashing in a pattern you can count the flashes and find out what the code is telling you. The codes are available online.
If it is just flashing steady, you would need to take it to a shop and have the system diagnosed.
Keep in mind working on the SRS system is dangerous since you can trigger the air bag if you make any mistakes.

The airbag warning light flashes


First check the airbag or SRS fuse if blown replace if not you will need to take the vehicle in to either the dealer or a shop that has the appropriate SRS diagnostic equipment. When the airbag light is on or flashing it indicates the SRS system is disabled and major fault is present. There are many causes from component failure due to age or accident, to a blown fuse. Check your owners maual for the location of the fuse.

I just bought a 2003 Ford F150, and a warning chime goes off right after starting. Chimes 5 times, pause, and repeat 4 more times. There are no lights or codes displayed on the dash. It drives fine, but...


The warning chime of 5x5 is a sign that the SRS ( airbag ) light is burnt out, and there is an error with the SRS system.

Verify SRS ( airbag ) lamp operation, turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) the airbag lamp should illuminate. If not, it is burnt out. Need to pull the cluster and replace.
( thread at F150online.com on cluster removal in the how to forum - titled about changing cluster illumination color or installing a cluster overlay ).

Once you replace the SRS bulb, you will get a LFC ( light Flash Code ) of a 2 digit number.
Example :
flash flash flash flash { short pause } flash flash { longer pause } flash repeats the same for 5 times, the solid on.
This is an example of a LFC 4-2. Once you have the LFC start a new problem with the LFC and we can get that fixed after you get the bulb replaced.

I'm getting an audible alarm from my instrument cluster as the air bag light doesn't light up with the rest of my instrument lights when i turned the key to on the alarm is 5 beeps appox. 5 times is there...


Replace the airbag lamp in the cluster, and get the LFC ( Light Flash Code ) to figure out what the problem is with the SRS.
The 5x5 beeping is an indication that there is a SRS problem waiting and the airbag light cannot give the LFC. Page 105 in the owners manual.

Once you replace the airbag light, you will get a LFC that is a 2 digit number presented by the flashes.
Example is a LFC of 42, the airbag light would flash 4 times, pause flash 2 times pause and repeat.

Once you have the LFC, either start a new problem, or add a comment to this problem with the number for further diagnoses.

Srs light is blinking


When the airbag light (SRS) 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
