There is no "reset" for an airbag system. The system checks itself each time the key is cycled on, and if it sees a problem, the air bag light is illuminated


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. When the light is on the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.   

You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool. You then need to have the cause repaired by a trained technician. The airbag system is not a safe place for do it yourselves


Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Airbag light flashing 1-8


If this is for a truck, it has something to do with the indicator lamp for the passenger side airbag. You would need the diagnostic test for that code to fix the problem.

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.

On my 1990 ltd cv air bag lights


Airbag lights are a bit more involved of a process. It could be as simple as getting your airbag control module reset (usually about $100-150) or it could be the result of a different problem. Possible causes for an airbag light are: 1) crash data stored in the airbag control module, requiring reset 2) bad clockspring - this sends data to the airbag inflator module 3) other fault in the SRS system. The only way to be sure what the problem may be is to get the system read for code and go from there. The airbag light will stay on regardless of a manual reset by removing the battery cable because the codes are stored in a different memory than standard trouble codes. Since the car checks the airbag system completely once you start, that is why the light won't go off until the data is erased from the airbag system control module. Once you find out what the cause is, getting the necessary parts and installing them would be simple enough. Do not just reset the system, have it scanned for possible codes first. Having an airbag randomly inflate while driving could prove to be problematic.

Airbag light and service soon light


You need to take this to a shop and have the airbag system repaired as that light is indicating a fault in the airbag deployment system. The service Engine soon light could be nothing more that a reminder to change the oil but is most likely an Oxygen sensor that needs replaced.

2002 lincoln ls...front air bag indicator light stays on after flashing 3 times...sensor prob?...dai5190


You will have to get the airbag code read to be sure but I have had to replace the clockspring in my steering wheel and also the airbag wiring harness under the passenger seat on my 2002 Lincoln LS, all in less than one year. If you or someone you know can help you remove the seat you can do the wiring harness yourself, it is a simple clip.
