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.

Is there a reset button or battery disconnect after airbags are deployed?


If your secondary restraint system (SRS) is disabled, you will need to reset your airbag module before the light can turn off, indicating the airbags are working properly. A scanner tool can be used to indicate the issue causing your airbag system to malfunction, and clear crash codes and hard data from the airbag computer system. After the airbag module is repaired and reinstalled, many vehicles will sense that there is no longer an issue, and the light will go off.

was my pleasure to help ??

A few days ago the red light which indicates the air bags system on the front panel is now staying on. Can anybody help me get the light off - If not is it worth having it repaired


It is helpful to know the the year, make, and model of your car.

Just about all airbag systems will keep track of what has caused their problem. You need to have a shop or dealer with the right scanning tools read the airbag module and give you the diagnosis.

before you start your car the airbag module will scan all connections in the car, and if any do not have the correct signal it will flash the airbag light (this also indicates that the airbag system is not functional) so if you are in an accident while the light is on. the airbags will not deploy.

The problem could be a broken clock spring in the steering column, they are good for 15-20 years depending on how much the car was driven in those years. could be a faulty seat belt sensor, broken wire, bad crash sensor, Etc.

So get the car scanned and make short work of finding the problem, cost effective ?
You'll have to decide.

Fiat 500 airbag light stays on but reads no faults


Hello,
Airbags are only serviceable by the dealership, the light indicates there is a problem in the Airbag system and they will not deploy in case of an accident. Regular scanners would not read anything related to Airbags. Talk to your dealrship, I would ask if there is any safety recalls concerning airbags on your model.

Error b1034 airbag warning light


This light came on in my car when the alternator went bad. If the airbag system is not getting enough voltage it will show a warning indicator light. Check your battery and alternator to make sure they are putting out enough juice.

My airbag indicator light stays on continuously on my 2008 Mercury Milan.


You need to fix this soon. First, I would try for free help, as I noticed your Milan is a 2008 model and it may be under Warranty (You get 3 or 4 Years) depending on mileage.

The Airbag Indicator light can mean several things. The Impact sensors behind the Bumpers can have a bad connection, the Chemical charge in the Airbag can be bad, or there is a bad connection somewhere inbetween.

Once its diagnosed, some parts like the Impact sensors can be sprayed with WD-40 and they will work again. Other parts like the firing mechanism for the Airbag is best left to experienced people.

Since anything is possible the Airbag may not work when you need it. Again, this may be a free repair if you take it to a Dealer.

2003 nissan altima airbag blinking. Engine is running rough. Plus check engine soon light is illiminated.


On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. Most systems can only be diagnosed using a scanner designed for the airbag system, however some use flash codes to indicate the problem. The scanners at Auto Zone or the ones that sell for @ $50 will not access the airbag system, only the engine systems (check engine light).
This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting some systems without a scanner. Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate that (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool. http://www.airbagsolutions.com/

Air bag light always blinking?


Mine came on when my car hit 120K mi. I also reset it using a sequence within the car.

Problem Scenerio: turn car motor on, car conducts self test, during which time airbag light stays on for 5-second (or 5 or 6-beeps)..it turns off for a second then flashes 'off and on'...and annoys the hell out of you as you drive...especially at night.

Solution 1: put black electrical tape (band-aid) over airbag light indicator...annoying problem gone.

However, in VA the airbag light can't be flashing to pass the annual car inspection, so....

Solution 2: Reset the Airbag light using the following sequence I discovered and heard about:

1. Turn key / ignition to 'ON' (Do Not Start). and await for the self-testing procedure to end (Air Bag Light stays on for about 5-seconds or '6-beeps')
2. As soon as the Airbag light turns off - turn the ignition to OFF position and count 5-Mississippi's (that's 5-seconds).
3. Then turn ignition back to 'ON' Position and repeat step 1 & 2 again.

Conduct Steps 1 & 2 - Three times in a row.

After the 3rd or successful timed sequence, allow the car to go through it's complete self testing stage and as soon as its done the airbag light will flash...but at a slower pace (That is good!) That means the cpu is resetting. Once you observe the slow flashing airbag light, turn the car off, then start it normally and the airbag light 'should' reset (not flashing and bugging the **** out of you).

Then, take the black electrical tape off the dash panel and throw it away.

This is no joke and it really works!! if you have any questions, contact me. carl@sat-tel.com

Fault airbag on the indicator


If you do not fully understand the airbag system, you shouldn't mess with it. Airbags can be as dangerous and deadly, as easily as they can save a life. Your airbag light is telling you that you have no airbags at this time. It's worth the expense to get the system fixed by a professional, rather than chance a collision without operable airbags.

Airbag light


This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.
