The airbag light only comes on if something in the seat restraint system is "not right". A bad clock spring, a bad sensor, etc. would cause that problem, as would a bad air bag. You really should rely on a professional to diagnose the problem since you can also injure yourself easily trying to work on that part of your car.

Air bag light is on because the computer sees a problem

the light will not go off until the "problem" is resolved

furthermore, you will need a professional scan tool like the $800 snap-on modis to diagnose the concern

therefore, bottom line, yes, you will need technician assistance to resolve the concern

Airbag flashes 6 times


The flashing light means there is a problem with the SIR system. When the light stays on the system is disabled.
You will have to take it to a shop to get it scanned to find out the problem.

Everything runs fine...but just yesterday the airbag icon came up on the dash,any ideas?


This is the trouble light for the air bag system. I could be just a loose wire, but without a computer it is imposable to diagnose this system without risking setting off an bag and they cost about $3000 on average because the whole system has to be replaced by law. A shop should be able to fix it allot cheaper than that as long as it hasn't gone off. Leaving it means your airbags might not work in an accident, causing you major insurance problems, so it's going to be cheaper to have a shop take a look at it. If you don't like their estimate, get a second opinion.

Airbag light is on; Engine Light is On, the driver side leaks when it is raining


You my friend have a bundle of problems. See if I can address them for you.
#1) Airbag light (SRS) needs to be reset by dealer or a competent shop - it's a special (and expensive reset tool) it's a safety thing. Keep in mind, if light comes back on, one of the crash sensors is loose, corroded or shorted and needs replacing. #2) Engine light - one of your cars many sensors have triggered computer as to a fault. You need to go to a good part store or shop and have them do an OBII fault scan (different from above) Autozone, Advance etc auto parts stores do these FREE. They'll tell you what needs to be replaced, thenthey can reset your light. #3) Your leak can be anything from door seal, window seal, and if you have a sunroof there's a drain near drivers side. I'd have a good shop look at it.

How do you turn off airbag light on vauxhall astra


you should really have the car plugged into a diagnostic unit to find the cause of the light staying on.

if you remove the steering wheel carefully following the directions in the workshop manual, you will find a "cassette" with a conductive ribbon inside, to carry electrical signals from the steering wheel to the column. this ribbon often breaks on the vauxhalls and will result in the airbag light staying on.
9 out of 10 airbag faults on vauxhalls are cured by replacing this cassette. the light would then reset itself.

always remember that airbags are EXPLOSIVE devices and should not be handled without taking the safety precautions listed in the service manual. if you are not sure, get a competent mechanic to do the job

How do reset the airbags warning light?


Some cars are designed to illuminate the warning light after the battery is disconnected. Playing around with the airbags and trying to turn this light off can be dangerous. That is why most people recommend taking it to the dealership to have it turned off. It might cost a few bucks but would be cheaper than having to replace the air bag if you accidentaly set it off while trying to turn the light off. I know that most people would like to try and fix it themselves, but just consider what might happen if you accidental perform a wrong step. Hope this helps

Airbag light indication is on my dash chevrolet venture 2002


Need to have the SRS system scanned for codes. Then they can pinpoint the faulty sensor or module. Call a few shops first as not all of them can or willl do it.
