This light indicates the airbag system is shut down and will not work due to a problem in the system, this may be caused by many components in the system the most common would be a ba seat belt buckle sensor switch, the other common problem would be a bad clockspring

A few days ago the red light which indicates the air bags system on the front panel is now staying on. Can anybody help me get the light off - If not is it worth having it repaired


It is helpful to know the the year, make, and model of your car.

Just about all airbag systems will keep track of what has caused their problem. You need to have a shop or dealer with the right scanning tools read the airbag module and give you the diagnosis.

before you start your car the airbag module will scan all connections in the car, and if any do not have the correct signal it will flash the airbag light (this also indicates that the airbag system is not functional) so if you are in an accident while the light is on. the airbags will not deploy.

The problem could be a broken clock spring in the steering column, they are good for 15-20 years depending on how much the car was driven in those years. could be a faulty seat belt sensor, broken wire, bad crash sensor, Etc.

So get the car scanned and make short work of finding the problem, cost effective ?
You'll have to decide.

1999 Lincoln Town Car Air Bag Light Problem


If you have replaced impact sensor, make sure the connectors are secured by the lock tabs. They have to be connected securely.

My airbag indicator light stays on continuously on my 2008 Mercury Milan.


You need to fix this soon. First, I would try for free help, as I noticed your Milan is a 2008 model and it may be under Warranty (You get 3 or 4 Years) depending on mileage.

The Airbag Indicator light can mean several things. The Impact sensors behind the Bumpers can have a bad connection, the Chemical charge in the Airbag can be bad, or there is a bad connection somewhere inbetween.

Once its diagnosed, some parts like the Impact sensors can be sprayed with WD-40 and they will work again. Other parts like the firing mechanism for the Airbag is best left to experienced people.

Since anything is possible the Airbag may not work when you need it. Again, this may be a free repair if you take it to a Dealer.

Air bag light always blinking?


Mine came on when my car hit 120K mi. I also reset it using a sequence within the car.

Problem Scenerio: turn car motor on, car conducts self test, during which time airbag light stays on for 5-second (or 5 or 6-beeps)..it turns off for a second then flashes 'off and on'...and annoys the hell out of you as you drive...especially at night.

Solution 1: put black electrical tape (band-aid) over airbag light indicator...annoying problem gone.

However, in VA the airbag light can't be flashing to pass the annual car inspection, so....

Solution 2: Reset the Airbag light using the following sequence I discovered and heard about:

1. Turn key / ignition to 'ON' (Do Not Start). and await for the self-testing procedure to end (Air Bag Light stays on for about 5-seconds or '6-beeps')
2. As soon as the Airbag light turns off - turn the ignition to OFF position and count 5-Mississippi's (that's 5-seconds).
3. Then turn ignition back to 'ON' Position and repeat step 1 & 2 again.

Conduct Steps 1 & 2 - Three times in a row.

After the 3rd or successful timed sequence, allow the car to go through it's complete self testing stage and as soon as its done the airbag light will flash...but at a slower pace (That is good!) That means the cpu is resetting. Once you observe the slow flashing airbag light, turn the car off, then start it normally and the airbag light 'should' reset (not flashing and bugging the **** out of you).

Then, take the black electrical tape off the dash panel and throw it away.

This is no joke and it really works!! if you have any questions, contact me. carl@sat-tel.com

Airbag indicator light


i dont know of any state that fails a vehicle for an airbag light but it would be wise to get the system checked out. it means there is a problem with the airbag system and itis possible it will not deploy during an accident or it may deploy without warning. the most likely cause would be a bad clockspring

HOw do you reset the SRS display


The light is on to indicate a fault in the airbag system, the light will remain on until the fault is repaired, also understand as long as the SRS waring indicator is on the airbag system is disabled

SRS


SRS stand for Supplymentary Restraint System, The purpose of the SRS light on your instrument panel is to alert you of a potential problem with your supplemental restraint system. It should blink seven times when you turn the ignition switch to ON or START and go OFF. A possible fault in the system can lead to any of the following: (a) The light does not come on when you turn the ignition ON. (b) The light stays on after the engine starts. (c) The light comes on while you are driving. Apart from the conventional causes of these faults (faulty airbag system), majority of the light indicator problem has been attributed to ignorance while fixing or repairing mechanical and/or wiring systems within the vehicle. If the SRS indicator light alerts you to a problem, have the supplemental restraint system inspected as soon as possible. If you ignore this indication, the airbags might not inflate when you need them. Likely Causes:
  • Steering wheel modifications
  • Faulty driver/passenger seat sensors for your airbag system (located under the seats)
  • Faulty seat belt mechanism
  • Tampered system components or wiring (e.g battery jumpering)
* Sometimes, a little adjustment of your seat belts and/or seat positions might fix the indicator problem over time (if the sensors are not faulty).
Precautions:
  • Do not modify your steering wheel or any other part of the supplemental restraint system. Modifications could make the system ineffective.
  • Do not tamper with the system's components or wiring. This could cause the airbags to inflate inadvertently, possibly injuring someone very seriously.
  • Tell anyone who works on your vehicle that you have a supplemental restraint system. Failure to follow the procedures and precautions in the official service manual could result in personal injury or damage to the system.
  • If all sensors are ok, the system can be reset using appropriate tools; refer to specially trained technicians.
