It's illegal for me to tell you how to unhook the air bags (Federal Government), but if you purchase Haynes Manual at any auto store such as Auto Zone, there will be repair procedures in it, to show you how to remove the air bags correctly without you being hurt. In the manual it will tell you what needs to be done and which wires to disconnect (and reconnect)(smile), but here? I cannot legally tell you how to disable a DOT Government Safety Device.

Let me know if this answered your question and please take the time to "Rate" my answer for I actually get paid to answer people via the phone or IM Chat, but I like to help people for free. (smile)

Airbag light stays on


When the Airbag light (SRS waring) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the Airbag 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 airbag 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.

Airbag Light stays ON


By disconnecting the sensor the light will still stay on unfortunately. The light has come on in fact due to either a false contact normally with the connector under the seat (common problem) or an actual fault with the airbag itself. By disconnecting it, it will only record the fault in the MRS (Multiple Restraint System) to have occured an additional time.

The only way to clear an airbag fault, is to plug in a reader and clear the fault. However this is a vicious circle because if the airbag system isnt problem free, the light wont extinguish! It was designed so cars were forced to go to the garages with such problems as they are a high risk problem, as any joe could just disconnect the airbags and sell it to an unsuspecting victim knowing its unsafe etc etc!

Hope this helps

My ABS light and Airbag light stays on


Get your ABS fixed. The airbag light can only be reset by a dealer. Usually caused by a bad or disconnected seat sensor

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

Hey,
take a look at www.airbagmodul.com

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.
