You have a fault in your airbag system. You need to get this checked out and repaired. The Haynes and Chilton's manuals have sections on these but this should be done by a dealer or experienced shop. Without knowing what is causing the fault it is very dangerous as the fault could trigger the Airbag while you are driving.

Service air bag light is on


take it to the dealer... or check all that junk that may be shoved under the seats if your car has (smart air bags). some newer vehicles have sensors under the seats that can be disturbed when you shove stuff under the front seats. there are hundreds of possible problems when that light comes on. BTW when that light comes on it shuts off your air bag system to prevent an unintended deployment so you are driving with non functioning air bags if that light is staying on. it rechecks itself every few seconds.

How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe


Hi, on most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for at 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. <br /> The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. <br /> <br /> <b>How to reset AIRBAG SRS Light on 2003 - 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe </b> <br /> Ignition Key Method: <br /> <ul> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>After the AIR BAG warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn IGNITION off within 1 second.</li> <li>Wait 4 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION on (but don't start car).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 2 seconds.</li> <li>START Car (the light may be blinking slower than before).</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>Turn IGNITION off.</li> <li>Wait 3 seconds.</li> <li>START Car.</li></ul> <br /> <b>This is a little easier</b> To reset the light simply turn the iginition to the on position, (you dont need to start it). All the lights should stay on for thier diagnostic check. As soon as the airbag light goes off, before it starts flashing, immeditatly turn the car off. Repeat this 3 or 4 times (turning to on then off) and the light should go away

I bought Toyoto Camry 2008 in UAE one month ago. After one week whenever I switch ignition on the Air Bag Indication mostly remains on. Sometimes, disappears for few minutes and then lights up again and...


The air bag light on then off for a while,while driving it comes on and stay on for a while this means the system has detected a problem in the airbag system and it is warning you that if you get in a accident the air bag may not deploy. My hope is that youll never need it and youll never be a vehicle when it goes off.

Where can I find the air bag fuse. My 2007 Equinox has the airbag light on but after driving a few miles or on a bumpy road it turns off.


You don't keep riding around with any check light
on your dash

You get to a repair shop and have it diagnosed
and repaired

You may not even have the Air Bag turned on if
have an accident.

Fuses don't perform any function or go bad

Airbag indicator light turned on it's never done that before. It turned on when I was driving so I pulled over & turned the truck off then turned it back on & it was gone then I started driving...


I would take it to a dealership or mechanic that can scan air bag systems. There are no fuses for the air bag system. the air bag system is a stand alone unit that can work even with out the battery in the car. It sounds too me like there is a loose wire on a sensor.

What does the red light on the bord with letters SRS means? It stays on for few seconds after I start the car (Honda accord 1995). Thank you


srs means secondary restraint system. e.g air bags and things like that. when it stays on for a few seconds its because it is doing a systems check. if the light stays on all the time then there is a problem. hope i helped.

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.

Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
  • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
  • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
  • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
  • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove Out the System
Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Active Commands
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.
