Did you plug the switch back in????, if so, you created a fault code. with the light not coming on it seems that you might have popped a fuse, check your fuses, if your sure that your fuses are all ok, try disconnecting the battery for about 5 minutes to try to clear the code, if that does not work, get your hand on a code scanner, and clear the code, if the code comes right back, you still have a fault in the air bag system.

    forgot to mention... it has to be a code scanner that works with air bag systems

What does it mean when the airbag light flashes twice and then twice again


It means that the airbag system has detected an electrical problem and may not work properly in an accident. The same light will flash if an airbag-less aftermarket steering wheel is installed unless a special kit is installed to eliminate the flash.

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.

I just bought a 2003 Ford F150, and a warning chime goes off right after starting. Chimes 5 times, pause, and repeat 4 more times. There are no lights or codes displayed on the dash. It drives fine, but...


The warning chime of 5x5 is a sign that the SRS ( airbag ) light is burnt out, and there is an error with the SRS system.

Verify SRS ( airbag ) lamp operation, turn the key from off to run ( do not start ) the airbag lamp should illuminate. If not, it is burnt out. Need to pull the cluster and replace.
( thread at F150online.com on cluster removal in the how to forum - titled about changing cluster illumination color or installing a cluster overlay ).

Once you replace the SRS bulb, you will get a LFC ( light Flash Code ) of a 2 digit number.
Example :
flash flash flash flash { short pause } flash flash { longer pause } flash repeats the same for 5 times, the solid on.
This is an example of a LFC 4-2. Once you have the LFC start a new problem with the LFC and we can get that fixed after you get the bulb replaced.

The 2002 Ford Ranger XLT airbag light blinks


The airbag is there, what's most likely wrong is the key switch may be going bad. Take your Ranger to a reputable mechanic and ask them to check it...unless you have an OBD II or a multimeter.

1998 airbag light comes on and off. when light is on the spedometer and rpm dials go to zero when airbag light goes off they work again. This is not a continous problem but does it off and on.


There is a loose connection (or corrosion) where the instrument cluster attaches to the wiring harness mount. Remove the screws (2) from the dash cover below the steering wheel and remove the panel. Remove the defrost vent cover (just lift carefully, it only snaps into place. Remove the screws around the cluster panel cover and remove the cover. Remove the the instrument cluster (it pulls straight out toward you) and make sure the wires are not corroded. Make sure the wiring harness is firmly attached to the metal bracket that holds them in place. Carefully push the instrument cluster back into place. While firmly holding the cluster in place, install and tightnen the screws that hold the cluster. After tightening, wiggle it and make sure it's solid. Start your Jeep and make sure everything works. Shut jeep off and install the rest of the panels in the reverse order of removal. This should fix your problem. What happens is, the cluster becomes loose, speedo quits working (sometimes all other gauges quit also) and gives an airbag code.

My air bag light is flashing. What does that


1. Get in your Pathfinder and CLOSE the door. Turn the key on one click to accessory mode so that all of the other lights on the dash are on but do not start the car. Now open your door and push the the button inside your door jamb that turns your interior light on 7 times. Close your door and then turn your key off.

Now start the Pathfinder...it should be off. If not, repeat this series a couple of times and it will go off. I have had theis happen twice and this is the correct way to fix the problem.

2. Similar story, similar results here too with a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. Got a new stereo installed, and got a bonus with the blinking airbag light on the instrument panel. Got nowhere with the 7x or 10x domelight press-the-switch voodoo. Bounced into this forum and got the fix that works for my SUV. For the 2007 Pathfinder owners out there: You'll notice the ignition key "beep" is heard only 4 times, not 5.

It took a little patience, as this procedure took me 2 attempts. This is a slight modification from the one mentioned above for the Frontier and the Maxima, but this definitely worked for my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder:

1. Key in, ignition turned to on (but don't start truck).
2. Pay attention to the 4 beeps and watch the dash lights. You're looking for the airbag light to go out just after the last beep.
3. As soon as the light goes out (but BEFORE it begins blinking on you) QUICKLY switch the key back to OFF. Don't remove the key yet.
4. After about 2 or 3 seconds, repeat steps 1 - 3. In total you will do this procedure about 3 times. I say "about" because this all took a couple of attempts, but it was at least 3 cycles.
5. After your last cycle, wait about 5 seconds and turn the key to ON again, and just observe the dash for the airbag light. It should go out and stay out. If not, try it again but maybe add an additional cycle.

Like I said, it took me a couple of attempts but it worked. All credit must go to this website, with special thanks to the poster "LB" ( http://www.carsforums.com/nissan/7423-nissan-airbag-light-reset-fix.html#post65692 )

I hope help you with this. Good luck.

Abdiver:where the heck is the passenger side airbag switch and light located on my 1995 ford ranger


My 1994 F-150 doesn't have a passenger side airbag, and if the 1995 Ranger does have passenger airbags, it would not have a way to disable the passenger airbag until later models (after a bunch of kids got hurt by the airbags deploying). If I recall correctly that wasn't added until somewhere between 1999 and 2001.

Flashing Airbag light


When you disconnected the battery you set a code in the airbag diagnostic module (loss of system voltage), you will have ot manually clear the code out to turn out the light.
