    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. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the ...scanlist.aspx page listed below.

    The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis (and not the one at Auto Zone---it needs to be airbag system specific, like a good body shop or the dealer). Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
    Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong!

    Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
    Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.
    Lastly, check your vehicle for recalls through this link.

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 ??

Airbag light stays on


The airbag system requires a special and very expensive diagnostic tool which not only is designed to cancel the air bag light, but it scans the entire system looking for faults which may have turned the air bag light on. This is one area where you do not want to attempt to repair or mess around with. If you do not know the proper procedures in servicing these systems, you can accidentally deploy the air bags. It shouldn't cost you that much to have the system scanned even if you don't have it fixed. Unless you are exceptionally well educated in mechanically repairing cars and this means , in some cases removing grilles, bumpers, fenders and other components to access a faulty component (including interior panels) Leave this up to a professional. You might get lucky and they can cancel the light because the scanner did not detect any fault withing the system.

Airbag light


You can try disconnecting the battery cable

That may create even more problems, if you
don't understand how your car works

You could just drive it & hope the MIL lamp goes out
& it may

Then you may have to go into enhanced data with any
scan too,l to get to the srs module as you suggested

Airbag light stays on 1996 saab 900s what to do


The most common cause for your air bag light is a faulty sensor. In this condition, the airbag cannot be depended upon to deploy in a collision. In almost every case, replacing the airbag sensor will solve your issue.

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/

1997 saab 900S airbag worning light on


There are lots of sensors in your car that tell the Airbag Module that you are in the seat.
The seatbelts also have sensors in them and are known for going bad. Run down to your local autozone and they will have something to hook up to it to find the code that the Airbag set.That will lead you in the dirrection you need to look in. (Important) YOUR AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY WHILE THE LIGHT IS ON IF YOU ARE IN A ACCIDENT
