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 1/2 hour prior.

What make a car to shake whn driving


It completely depends what other underlying issues there are. But there are a few things you can check...

Is the steering wheel shaking as well? If so it could be a wheel balancing issue or bearings, or something else steering related.

If the steering wheel isn't shaking it could be your engine mounts, lack of oil, worn bearings, problems with the driveshaft.

The Haynes manual for Renault Meganes are a good start, at the back of the book it has all of the fault finding things you can do. Almost all of what I have suggested will need to be checked by a good mechanic.

Check for working airbags before buying a used 2002 golf.


The airbag light is on the speedometer head. It looks like a person sitting blowing a big bubble. It should come on when you turn the key on and go off about 4-5 seconds after the engine starts. If your airbags were missing you would know it. The horn pad on the steering wheel that says VW on it is the airbag. If you removed it a bunch of wires would be hanging from the steering wheel and you would be looking at the nut that holds the steering wheel on.
