My srs airbag warning light doesn't go out on my 05 honda pilot. How do I shut it off

There are 4 most important components involved in the airbag deploy system.
Airbag itself.
Airbag Clock Spring.
Airbag Control Unit (ACU) or Airbag Module.
Airbag Impact Sensors.
If it is any problem in the components, then Airbag Light stays ON.
Sometimes there is a false code, and AUC can be cleared and reset. This can be done by professionals and cost $60 to $70. Might be a loose connector or a defective component, in this case they might charge you more.
The light indicates a problem with your air bags. Do not attempt to do any repairs to the system by yourself. Take it to the Honda dealer or a qualified service center.

Hi, how much would it cost to reset airbag light on my vw lupo

Sorry but that can only be answered by a repair garage. The answer depends upon:-

  • the country you're in;
  • whether you use an independent garage or a franchised outlet; and
  • the exact reason that the light has come on
The last point is really important: you may just have a loose wiring connector or the light could be telling you that an airbag has actually failed and needs replacing. It's important to note that this is not really a DIY job: if you don't understand what you're doing there's a risk of airbag detonation which could harm you and cause a lot of interior damage.

As your car is now 10 years old, it's likely that the light has just come on to tell you that the airbags have reached the end of their certified lifespan and need servicing. In practice what usually happens is that a VW garage or an airbag specialist will run diagnostics on the system and then re-certify the system for around another 5 years, resetting the airbag light to match. They can do this based on ongoing research by the airbag manufacturer using samples of airbags manufactured at the same time as yours. Many car insurers will refuse to pay out if the airbag light is ignored or if it has been reset by unqualified personnel.

The cost of the diagnostics and recertification is usually fairly low as it normally doesn't take long if all proves to be fine, but you can usually get it done for free if you get the same garage to do a major service or similar major work done at the same time, such as a cambelt replacement which will definitely be overdue if not already carried out.

My airbag light has come on and stays on when the car is on. Will it fail MOT? do i need to get it fixed? how much will it cost? mechanic ran it through diagnostic machine and couldnt turn it off.

You need to take this to a dealer, it sounds to me like the module or sensor has failed and it possibly will fail on an impact, they will run scans and test it for you at a minimal cost. Good luck and be safe.

Airbag light is on

Ok that Sounds about right but only one problem, for all the components to be BAD, this means that this vehicle was involved in a serious enough accident for airbag to deplore. In most states its illegal to replace air bad that have been used. The airbag module will cost a pretty penny and the spool or "clockspring" will cost a pretty penny. Depending how much you paid for this vehicle + cost of these repairs to make this vehicle safe to drive becuase remember with airbag light ON airbags are NOT functional. The thing that I am thinking about is, was this a good purchased?JUST BEING FRANK WITH YOU Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

Airbag light

The wires going from to the airbag plug could have been pinched at reinstallation.I think that the ignition switch was replaced and it is very easy to pinch the wires from the airbag plug.One has to be very careful when reinstalling.

2001 toyota sequoia
airbag light on while driving,was told by dealer not to worry about deployment when driving.
costed 107.00 for diagnostic then another 180.00 for labor just to tell me the driverside SRS bag needs to be replaced and it would cost 1,160.00 to fix.
left dealer mad as hell, after paying them 285.00 of my hard earned money.
