    The dealer told me there is a sequence that you can do to reset a blinking airbag light without a scanner

  • ronbuff Apr 24, 2010

    The horn works and the cruise control works and those are the only controls on the steering wheel

  • ronbuff Apr 24, 2010

    I made a mistake . The car is a I30 not a j30. How can I find out if it has a code or not.

  • ronbuff Apr 24, 2010

    I used the scanner and it instrcted me how to retrieve the codes by pushing the door switch five times within seven seconds. Came up with a code 22(L-H driver side door malfunction). How do I tell if the radio has a code

  • ronbuff Apr 25, 2010

    Thank you for the help. The car was in an accident and has a salvadged title so the air bag may have been improperly installed

The light blinking indicates that there is a hard system failure and the system is now inoperable. Does anything else not work(i.e. horn, stereo controls on steering wheel) at this point and what esle happened around the same time?

    The only info I can see, is to remove the battery cable(negative)and wait at least 10 minutes. Make sure that if the radio has a code that will need to be entered, that you have that code written down prior to disconnecting the battery.

    If it is blinking, it has a code. It should be read with a scanner. Once you know what the code is, I can tell you what the next step is to repiar it. The light should illuminate once the key is cycled on but should go out if there are no faults fould after 7 seconds.

    You are right. I forgot Nissan has this procedure. You turn the key on and press the switch. Try that and then turn the car off and restart. Double check under the left hand seat for anything that could be pulling the wiring harness (since it has sensors in the seat)and causing this issue. It could be something very simple.

It would have to be done with a scanner,and if the air bag system is detecting something wrong,it will come back on.

The air bag light on my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee comes on and off without reason. I was told by a machanic to get a "blow up belt / seat belt for the driver's side". He said this belt was only...


Not likely that the air bag will deploy without notice, its supposed to be a safety device not a hazard.
the light can mean the air bag(or belt) it may not work, or it is due for servicing, this can sometimes be when they get to 10 years old, if your model has the blow up belt it may mean the belt is out of date, pehaps the mechanic was correct.
You will need a specialist air bag tech, who will check or replace necessary items and restet the warning light.

Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.


The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

Air bag light is blinking on and off


You can disconnect the battery for a few minutes. This will reset the computer. Re-connect the battery.
If the problem continues, you should call up auto parts stores to find one that has the meter for error code read-out. Get the code to find the problem. The read-out is free. Try Advance Auto, AutoZone etc.

1999 f150 airbag light stays on after blinking upon start up!


Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
  • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
  • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
  • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
  • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove Out the System
Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Active Commands
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.
