Hello, You will have to have a scanner to find out what is causing the air bag light to come on. Once you get the code then you can diagnosis the system and repair it. Not all generic scanners can read air bag system codes. Thank you

Airbag light stays on


an airbag light, can mean a number of things. Your airbag will not deploy if a fault airbag light is on. It is dangerous, it has to be taken to a mechanic, to get it checked out. God-Bless! The airbag codes need to be checked to find the fault.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car


{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

Airbag light came on..did this come from a impact


{: ) It is possible, but not always the case. An airbag light on your instrument cluster may mean several things. Usually under normal conditions, an airbag light on warns the driver that the airbag system has detected a fault somewhere in the airbag circuits and need to be checked or fixed, otherwise the airbag protection system may not work properly in the event of collision. It can be wiring or component malfunctions.
Sometimes it can be a deployed component like the seat belt retractors or an SDM, which you may not notice. Your vehicle needs to be checked by a diagnostic scan tool for trouble codes. This way, you can easily determine the status of your airbag system.
If your vehicle did have an impact before that you're not aware of, and no attempts were made to have it repaired despite previous airbag light warnings, well, you can always expect the airbag light to come on.

If the airbag light is on, there is probably an issue with your airbag system, you should have a mechanic check it out for your saftey, they can not only check to make sure your vehicle is safe but can turn off the airbag light via the computer. Let me know if this helps, Jeff from fixya

2003 nissan altima airbag blinking. Engine is running rough. Plus check engine soon light is illiminated.


On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. Most systems can only be diagnosed using a scanner designed for the airbag system, however some use flash codes to indicate the problem. The scanners at Auto Zone or the ones that sell for @ $50 will not access the airbag system, only the engine systems (check engine light).
This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting some systems without a scanner. Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate that (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool. http://www.airbagsolutions.com/

Airbag light 1992 camry


There is a fault int eh airbag system on one of the sensors or the airbag itself. You need to have this checked by a mechanic as it is possible to trigger the airbag if the test is done incorrectly.

BMW 745i airbag light. Told to replacing airbag clockspring


Hello , check the airbag contact sensor behing the grill assembley . They are located to the left and right of the grill almost to the headlight assemblies. Check the wires to them for corrosion and damage. Check the fuse as well. There should be an air bag testing wire or fuse in the fuse panel. DO NOT UNPLUG THE AIR BAG SENSORS OR HIT THEM !!

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

Airbag light


This is either a problem with one or both of your airbags or the airbag connector located at the back of the glovebox has been disconnected for some reason. (ie. to prevent airbag opening when installing baby seat) (1999 miata does not have a baby seat airbag disabling sensor).

You should get your car inspected at your local mazda service to check if this is a wiring (plug disconnected) issue or one of your airbags is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

Flashing airbag light could indicate that either one of the airbags or both have a problem. Disconnecting the passenger's airbag has the same effect.

Warning! Do NOT attempt to do any kind of airbag/airbag wiring related repair yourself. Airbag problems should be addressed ONLY by certified technicians at your local Mazda service. (Airbag fixing requires for example that the car battery is disconnected, you MUST NOT attempt anything with the car battery connected).


Hope this helps.
