Airbag light stays on, how do I fix this myself with no cost or little cost?

If you haven't had the error code read from the cars SRS Airbag Computer Control Module, take the car to your friendly auto parts retailer and have the code read. Most parts suppliers will provide a complementary scan.

If the light comes on a second or two after the key is turned on it is an indication that the SRS computer has failed a system check.
The attached image shows components checked during the SRS diagnostics startup check. They check the wiring for bad connections and the airbag explosive charge to confirm the connections and charge is ready..

Having the error code data will give you an indication of the cost associated with the repair. With the light lit the saftey restraint is deactivated and the problem should be corrected. Many cars have tensioners that tighten the seat belt during a crash. Connections to these components along with the seat presence switches can have connection problems under and around the seats.

SRS remains charged even when the power to the SRS computer is removed. This makes sense when you think about a crash where the electrical systems fails at the instant the system needs to deploy the airbag!!

These systems need to be serviced only by a qualified technician. The Airbags can deploy without warning as when you are working on the system and not follow the required procedures.

I have a 1997 chrysler town and country LXI van and my air bag light is started to stay on it's started about 3 weeks ago i also noticed that my cruise control is also not working. I took it to my...

I think you got all good & honest answers

Your correct in that a dealer is only for warrantee work
After that, it is too expensive,so a repair shop is you only choice

Can not guess at your vehicle issues,but a clock spring is a
possible cause

Any decent repair shop should be charging $75.00 or more,
just to take the scan tool out,to check for codes etc. That is a
piece of equip that costs from $2,000 to $10,000, so someone
has to pay for it.

Then you have parts, if necessary & labor

Your going to spent up to a $1000 a year to maintain any vehicle

Airbag light stays on in a 2003 audi a6 i've replaced airbag module & drivers seatbelt

You need to access the Airbag ECU (Electronic Control Module) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car in order to erase all faults - DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored, unlock and reset the Airbag ECU. Then the Airbag light will turn OFF after approx. 4 seconds, ignition ON.
Good Luck!

Airbag light on dash is on. Told $600 to replace "rear airbag sensor". Can I buy the sensor and replace it with less cost?

Wow, that's expensive. $600 sure sounds like the air bag module itself. The air bag "sensors" located at the front near the radiator hold downs, there's 2 of them are around $45 each.

I own a 2002 Kia Optima. Recently, there is a rumbling noise coming from the front center of the car into the cabin onc you get underway. The faster you go, the louder the rumbling noise. No other problems...

no worries about the airbag light. just be sure to wear you seatbelt. in the event of and accident the airbag may or may not deploy! but to replace the airbag unit its self will be very costly $800-2500. as for the noise you may need to be more specific. its can be anything from alignment, bad ball join, bad motor mount or tran mount, bent rim, or even a bad tire

Airbag light is on

Ok that Sounds about right but only one problem, for all the components to be BAD, this means that this vehicle was involved in a serious enough accident for airbag to deplore. In most states its illegal to replace air bad that have been used. The airbag module will cost a pretty penny and the spool or "clockspring" will cost a pretty penny. Depending how much you paid for this vehicle + cost of these repairs to make this vehicle safe to drive becuase remember with airbag light ON airbags are NOT functional. The thing that I am thinking about is, was this a good purchased?JUST BEING FRANK WITH YOU Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

costed 107.00 for diagnostic then another 180.00 for labor just to tell me the driverside SRS bag needs to be replaced and it would cost 1,160.00 to fix.
left dealer mad as hell, after paying them 285.00 of my hard earned money.
