You need to replace the "entire airbag system";not just the airbag. If you don't know what you're doing you may seriously hurt, yourself. You will need new crash sensors, a new system monitor, and a new airbags. "YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THEM ALL". Messing up the cover is not a issue. If you attempt to do this yourself, disconnect the battery from your vehicle, and do not touch the airbag system for at least 10 minutes. If you don't replace all crash sensors, the system monitor, and "airbags", you may find them blowing in your face for no apparent reason.

I very strongly suggest you don't do this yourself. If you don't install it correctly it could discharge prematurely. You don't want that if you driving at 60 or 70 MPH. Take it to a pro.

Locate airbag sensor


Many are mounted to the floor board under center counsel between front seats. If your airbag has been tripped you must replaces this module. They're hard to order new but I've had good success reusing from junk yard cars that haven't had bag deployed. Warning do not mess with airbag system until battery has been disconnected for at least 2 hours. I disconnect over night. These modules hold a charge with capacitors so it can activate in an accident even if battery cable is severed before bags are deployed. You must give capacitors time to discharge on their own or risk setting off the airbag by working with this system to soon. Of course this warning is only for working on systems that haven't already been set off or deployed. ie when reassembling system.

2001 pontiac grand am air bag module reset


Yes!!! You can replace it yourself.(Dont let others fool you into paying extra or telling you otherwise.)
-This is for pontiac grand ams 1999-2005 only.
-There are no frontal airbag impact sensors nor are there belt tensioners.
-The SRS system consists of only the (driver airbag) ,(passanger airbag),and the (airbag control module) in 1999-2005 grand ams.

If you crash/wrecked and airbags deployed you will need.
-Driver and Passanger airbags
-Airbag control module

You can buy cheap airbags from a local junkyard any year from 1999-2005 will fit.
You can also find an airbag control module for cheap at your local junk yard BUT YOU MUST FIND ONE WITH THE SAME (PART NO.) AND (SERV NO.) AS THE ONE YOUR REPLACING.The (part no.) and (serv no.) should be at top left of airbag control module.However it does (Not) have to match numbers under barcode or the numbers at the far bottom right of airbag control module.

After you get both airbags and airbag module
-Disconnect car Battery
-Replace airbags
-Replace airbag module (under passanger seat)
-Double check all connections and connect battery.

Congradulations!Your airbags should be back online.

Notes: Two torx 35 head screws hold the driver airbag, access is through two holes behind steering column.
To remove passanger airbag you have to remove glovebox it uses (7mm)screws.After you remove you will see a pair of (10mm)screws holding airbag.
To remove airbag control module First remove passanger seat 2(15mm).Then after removing you will notice a raises area kinda like a vertical bump.Take a razor blade to your carpet and cut it to explose the module underneath.
The airbag module is held by three screws depending on the year of your car it varies.Most likely 3 (10mm).

What is the red warning light "SRS"


It is the air bag malfunction warning light.

This will show if the fuse for the air bag operation has blown or if the fuse is removed and not replaced. There can also be other causes such as problems with the wiring or wiring connections.

As a first step check the fuse panel and ensure the fuse is OK. The fuse location is covered in the owner's manual.

I need to shut off the airbag light


the air bag lights on all mopar's/chrysler products are controlled by a sensor in the airbag circuit and come on wehn the air bag has outlived its ability to function correctly which usually means the air bag will not implode safely after that point! you can spend time and money replacing the senor to it! however it will come down to you have to spend serois money buying a new bag . if it's just the light that bothers you? then remove the buld socket from the dash and take the bulb out

I am buying a volvo which originally had an airbag, but where the steering wheel was replaced with one which does not have an air bag. The car is a 1991 Volvo 740, and it doesn't have ABS so I was hoping...


It's unlawful to replace a deployed airbag with one not designed for the vehicle in some states. It's also unlawful to disable the airbag which by virtue of not replacing the airbag after it has been deployed. This car sounds like a headache waiting to happen. One has to wonder what kind of collision the car was involved in to make the previous airbag deploy. At the very least, verify the DMV and car safety laws where you live prior to making the purchase and if you're still intent on buying the car, you should get a CARFAX report first. I do wish you well and the best of luck. Greg

Hit a deer and airbags deployed; some front end damage to vehicle; what do I need to do to replace airbags and get them functioning again? (especially with regards to airbag sensor)


the air bags are very costlly, like around 2,000-4,000 eachwith out labor. the sensors are a few hundred also. when you replace the air bags you should replace all of the sensors. very expensive. for that kind of money you could almost get a new van. using junk yard air bags i don't suggest. to risky.

Airbags deployed


You have to disconnect the battery, replace the air bag modules (air bag modules are the things that explode in your face) and the crash sensors and the control unit or module that came with it. Reconnect the battery and the car should start. Hope this is helpful.

1998 Ford windstar horn wiring


There is something called a clock spring in the column that is used for the airbag, horn and cruise control buttons. This clock spring if messed with will cause a/bag light to come on and possibly cause a/bag failure if there is a collision. DON"T mess with the wiring in the column. Run new wires in to the horn or install an a/market horn.
