The only way to find out is to have it scanned to find out what is malfunctioning, and then repair the problem. Sounds like when it happened before the person was not experienced with this type of repair. Hope this helps.

My air bag light is on, what does this mean

It means that one or more components of your complete Air Bag Safety system is faulty, this won't mean that your airbags will go off but rather something may not activate in the event of an accident depending on whats causing the fault or faults, some manufacturers programme that if an airbag light is on indicating a fault in the event of an accident then all airbags will go off as a backup safety, you will need to seek a service repairer who can diagnose your make and model car to determine the source of the fault

Reset srs airbag

If the airbag light is on, there is a failure in the airbag circuit, and your airbag may fail to deploy in the event of an accident.
There is no "reset." You will need to have your airbag system serviced.

Remove horn airbag toyota avensis

Avensis 2004 (2003-2007 model)
Removed as there was something rolling around inside the steering wheel, causing the horn to randomly activate

Unit has airbag, I didn't fancy the idea of the unit going off so I disconnected the battery as a precaution

Loosen the two "torx" screws on either side of the steering wheel (on sides next to the stereo controls on one side and blank/cellphone controls on the other side) , they will loosen, but not completely come out as they are held in by a plastic "cage".

Use a magnet to 'hold' one of the torx screws out as far as possible, whilst slowly wiggling the centre of the steering wheel out on that side (it won't completely remove), repeat the same on the other side, the centre should now come out (it's a firm fit), but note that the removed piece is still connected via cables (for the airbag), I did not need to remove these to perform my repair, so I am unsure as to what would be required to 'reset' airbag (if anything) once these are disconnected.

The torx screws need to be located in the plastic cages (on the recess on the Torx screw head) to hold them in place whilst refitting the centre of the steering wheel.
